Kung Fu Panda 3 is visually stunning. I honestly thought that the price of Star Wars 3D was not worth it. Yesterday, I paid like $16 a ticket to see Kung Fu Panda 3 in 3D. Sometimes, living around rich people sucks. They clearly have money to spend that the rest of us have to think about. Nowhere was that more apparent than while waiting, we shopped the nerd store, and there's a $299.00 Batman Utility Belt. If you have $300 to spend on a Batman utility belt? You should probably question your priorities.
Anyway, the movie is visually stunning. The opening scene is just beautiful to watch. So if you have a few extra bucks, go to the 3D version. I told my son, who is afraid of sloths, that the pandas look a little slothlike, so he should be warned. I mean, it's not "The Revenant" but if you find sloths scary, this might be troublesome.
Cute movie, and I passed up my two favorites playing at the Stanford Theater: Notorious and Casablanca. Together!! I'm running out of friends who want to live in another era with me, but my son will do anything for Popcorn, so Pandas it was! I did have a great dinner with a friend who wanted me to believe in myself as an author again and forced me to Wal Mart at 10 p.m. to show me that I'm a real writer. You gotta love friends like that, and I'm telling you, Wal Mart at ten p.m. is an experience to behold!
