Advantages: fun for 3D lovers, a little learning, beautiful scenery
Disadvantages: grainy picture, boring story
We went to New Orleans for vacation and while there we decided to go the IMAX. Remember, if you are in New Orleans, look for coupons and special deals. Some showings are only $5.
Back to the Galapagos--the movie was in 3D and the effects were pretty good. The kids in the row in front of us kept reaching out to try and touch the birds and animals that appeared to be in our faces. The story line of the movie looked very old. My fiance and I were both sure that we had seen this movie before in grade school. It is the story of a researcher and Darwin enthusiast who wants to see what Darwin did and try to continue his work. The story itself was quite boring, but to someone who has only seen 3D once before, it didn't matter. The scenery was fantastic and the stomach flip flopping from the motion was great. A 3D movie is like a tame roller coaster ride for those of us with weaker stomachs. The picture itself was a little grainy and didn't quite do justice to the beauty of the Galapagos Islands. However, all in all, I would recommend this as a chance to learn a little bit about evolution.
As an aside, a preview of Cyberworld was shown at the beginning, and I wished we had gone to see that movie instead.
