I always look for reviews that specify whether it is worth the extra money to see a kid’s movie in 3D. I used to always say no and never paid. However, the last two movies I didn’t pay for 3D, I felt like we were missing integral parts of the story without the 3D special effects.
We finally saw “Madagascar 3” and you could tell all the shots that were meant to be in 3D, and I do feel like we missed a lot in that movie because we didn’t pay extra. I also felt that way in “Brave.” You could just tell “Oh that was 3D,” and I think the movie would have benefited from the 3D glasses.
I did NOT feel this way in “Hotel Transylvania.” There were not parts in the movie where I was like “Oh that should have been in 3D,” and I’m glad I didn’t pay extra this weekend for this movie. The 2D seemed totally fine.
