A Christmas Carol
This week my Mom and Dad have graciously encouraged Kevin and I to go out as much as possible before he leaves on his two-week Thailand trip (or...have they just been trying to get us out of the house so they can feed the grandkids too much ice cream?! Hmmmm...). We had a great time Monday night going out for some BBQ (SO worth the indigestion!) and taking in a movie.
We went to see the new computer-animated version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, and we loved it! This was actually my first ever time to see a movie in 3-D, and I was so amazed at the realism. As the movie was starting, Kevin was laughing out loud because he was so enjoying the effects. (The last movie he saw in 3-D was Jaws. Just a wee bit of advancement since then!) You feel like you're getting snowed on through much of the movie. Very, very fun. The 'acting' was great, the animation of the characters was life-like, and who can beat the story line? There were some parts that would be too scary for younger kids, but I think we'd take our 9- and 12-year olds and they'd be fine.
If you're looking for a fun movie to enjoy this Thanksgiving weekend, I'd definitely recommend this one!
Here's a more thorough review if you want more information.
