My parents were in town to visit the grandkids.
This was the first time they've seen the finished HT.
I turned on the projector, I had "Alison Krauss and Union Station" in HD on the DVR, I only meant to let it play while I found a DVD to watch. They were hooked.
The next night we watched "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow"
. My Dad like it. I wasn't as impressed...
Possible spoilers below...
So who was this Sky Captain... did he just fly around waiting for a customized distress signal like Batman? It seemed like a rip off from every movie in history... a touch of Wizard of Oz (which was showing in the theater at the beginning of the movie, but the dead island villian reminded me of the Great Oz), Raiders of the Lost Ark, Iron Giant. Jude Law never bothered me before, but now I'm tired of him. Frankie just happened to be in the area as gas ran out? And I still don't get the Adam and Eve test tubes. And if this villian was so smart, why did he need to build robots to steal generators, why not just build the generators?
The robots marching through the city streets at the beginning had some big LFE.
Different. Stylish. But weak.
