It was a few weeks ago when I saw it, but if I remember correctly it cost around $30. It was a saturday night, and I guess 3D movies cost more (It was the first move in 3D i've seen) and the glasses cost a few dollars too I think.

Thirty bucks?? For one ticket?

Do they give a reason for the increase in price?  Hello to Shossy!   :)

Motion pictures are sort of a family business so we see most of the new movies the first weekend they come out and here's my personal opinion about the most recent.

WAR HORSE - I was a bit disappointed after seeing this because I expected a lot more after seeing the prevues. I think my main objection to this movie is that it attempted to tell a story with too many non-essential characters written into the script.

And each character was somehow connected with the horse ... of course.

But the time constraints did not allow each character to be developed enough so that you were concerned with their eventual outcome....  such as the two military brothers who are shot for desertion and the young girl who finds the horse in the farm-house and dies during the ensuing war.

I think that the story would have been better told through the eyes of the original owner and the horse's personal combat experience.

It was beautifully done, but too damn stretched out.

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO  .... This English version was too damn drab and too damn dreary to enjoy and no where as great as the Swedish rendition.

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE ... A great movie that made my hands sweat, but a bit complicated when it came to accomplishing the impossible mission ... and since I never have been a MI fan, I was somewhat lost at the end.

TINTIN ... Beautifully done but the story was somewhat disappointing  and very confusing. Plus each scene was too damn long and the twin detectives were somewhat boring.

WE BOUGHT A ZOO ... An OK story that might have been more appropriate as a TV series, but it has been getting A+ ratings so what the hell do I know!

SHERLOCK HOLMES ... Well done but I've never been a Holmes fan and this one convinced me  that I never will be.

HUGO ... Beautifully photographed and a big plug for the preservation of old movies.
Some shots such as the boy's race through the clockworks was amazing.

ARTHUR CHRISTMAS ... A great film for kids of all ages. The close to final scene in which Santa and his two sons watch the excitement of the little girl on Christmas morning is classic and among the best cartoon sequence I've even seen.

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THE FOLLOWING MOVIES:

BATTLESHIP
THE IRON LADY
THE CHIMPANZEE
MAN ON A LEDGE
JOHN CARTER

HORRIBLE movie. Nobody should waste their money on this movie. Slow, contrived, too long and the worst ending since "the Blair Witch Project."

Also the only movie besides Blair Witch where when the credits rolled and I said "I want my money back."

If I'm allowed to rate a movie with a -300, this is the one that gets it.
