Lightning Movie Review – Beauty and the Beast in 3D

We all know the movie, especially if you have daughters (or were a kid when it first came out, admit it boys).  So I won’t bore you with a description of it, but I’m going to talk about the 3D conversion.  Honestly, it’s pretty useless, to me.  There were a few scenes where it looked cool, but not worth an extra three bucks.  Thankfully, we saw it at the AMC for an afternoon show, so we didn’t pay huge money…well, any more than usual for a movie.

There IS a new Tangled short in front of it, the wedding.  Which is mostly a slapstick bit for Maximus (the horse) and Pascal (the chameleon), and was funny enough.  Also worth a discounted matinee showing.

One thing that DID interest me was that there would be a re-release of Finding Nemo in 3D this summer…that’s one of my favorites, and I’d love to see that underwater world in 3D.  I would think a CGI animated movie would look better when converted, but we’ll see.
