Besides snacks we used to sneak in coffee from Starbucks.
But you know, if not for these overpriced concession stands many movie theaters wouldn't be able to stay in business.... I believe they make the most profits from concessions and from screen ads.

I have a feeling you're right, Roadfix. When DH and I go to the Sunday matinee, there are very few people there. We've talked about how we don't know how they stay in business.

I was grumbling the other day about the dang commercials before the movie starts, but you're right RF!

Yes, the author spent a lot of time in the book explaining how he retro-fitted the rover for travel, how he started the potatoes, etc. Interesting for science geeks, not so much for a regular audience. Shrek, Dad and I were all geeked out over the book and supremely satisfied with the movie.

Good film indeed. I watched it last night.

Did you see it in 3-D, Frank? That pretty much did the trick for us.

3-D rocks. Seeing the raptors snap at us, and watching that toothy shark-like fish thing leap from the water really made it for us! The story line wasn't as good as the first one, but we really liked the 3-D special effects.
