Sometimes the movie schedule isn’t the best fit for my life.
Saturday, there was someplace my dear wife Karen had to be at 3 p.m., no ifs, ands or buts about it. (Hello, tax preparer.)
We wanted to see “Insurgent” beforehand. And I must say, that was a good call, as the day unfolded. (Hello, but satisfying meeting with tax preparer.)
The noon showing of the second in the series from the YA novels by Veronica Roth at the Regal Cinemas chain in Syracuse mega shopping, dining and entertainment complex Destiny USA was in Real 3D. We’d never been. I have this vision thing, you see, I don’t so well out of one eye, my whole life. I’ve feared this would cause me to see blurry squiggles while the rest of the audience ducked cool effects.
Well, I must report that all was well. To this one-eyed guy (OK, that’s a stretch) the movie looked very much like a regular showing. Karen, on the other hand, said we’d picked a great movie for our first Real 3D experience.
Shailene Woodley and Theo James put in a good turn in this second installment of the “Divergent” series from the YA novels by Veronica Roth.

Meanwhile, I’m also taking the opportunity to make this the final answer to PriorHouse, who tagged me in the Black & White Challenge.
I asked MDW Karen to take a shot of me in the theater wearing the Real 3D glasses before the trailers started. I was thrilled at what she caught on the screen, considering it was our first trip to this dimension.
Today I am going to tag Rachel of Rachel’s Whims to participate in the 5 Post Black & White Challenge. My classmate in Photo 101 is a real corker in writing and photography. I like her work.
Have you gone to a 3D movie in the theater, and if so, which movie, and did the experience wow you a lot or a little? Have you considered buying a 3D flat screen TV, and why or why not? Are you a fan of the ‘Divergent’ and ‘Insurgent’ franchise, and why or why not?
