I don’t see a lot of movies in the cinema, so call me slow if you like, but I think I’ve worked out why big TVs and DVDs and Bluray are getting so popular.
Freaking $18.50 for an adult, $13.50 for kids? (And this is at 10am on a weekday — I don’t know if their pricing varies at peak times.) Plus $4 each for Choc Tops, and $3.90 for a bottle of water. $61.40 for a movie with a snack? Gordon Bennett.
The silver-lining is there was only one other person in the theatre, sitting right up the back, so we got pick of the seats.
And the movie itself? Spectacular, but not deep. Enjoyable but not utterly brilliant. A little like the original, in fact.
