The 3D was also done in such a way that it helped with the immersion aspect, without being a distraction as in some films. Within 5 minutes I even forgot I had the glasses on. I think that technology has come a long way over the past couple years, or at least it doesn't give me headaches like it used to.
If the critics pan something it usually means I'll enjoy it.

Sigh, just lovely.
I loved it. As I say, I have simple tastes.

Finally got around to that third movie we had. Thankfully, the library lets us renew it for a second week if there isn't anyone waiting for a copy. Therefore, we saved it for tonight, since we aren't award show watchers. Watched "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel". Funny, touching, sad...it had all the emotions riding a roller coaster. Very good.

"Red 2" is waiting for us now. I'll swap it for the ones we have at home and see how long it takes before we get to see it.

Last one I saw was 'Seven Psychopaths.' Funny and good. Brought to us by the Director of 'In Bruges,' which I also thought was funny and good.

I've only seen one Oscar nominee -- 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' -- funny and good, imho.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a great movie and now they are coming out with The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel this year. It still has Judi Dench and Maggie Smith in it.

My cousin and I got dragged to 50 shades of grey by our wives. It was so boring.

Going to see the sequel to "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" on Tuesday. I didn't see the first but I'm told it won't spoil the second one

Yes, a friend who read the book said that was too.
