I have really enjoyed the "Toy Story" films - they are funny and fun and charming - so when I realised the new film "Toy Story 3" was showing locally I asked husband if he would like to go with me. He agreed and we went on Wednesday afternoon. The weather has been stormy this week but it was fine and sunny when we left home to stroll along to the cinema, though we did go armed with raincoats and an umbrella as well as our sunglasses.
Wednesday afternoons are cut price for retired folk and our tickets cost us less than £10 even though the film was showing in 3D - bargain! I asked H if he had seen a recent 3D film but he hadn't watched 3D since he was a boy. I've seen "Scrooge" and "Alice in Wonderland" and said to him that he would love the modern effects.
The time came for us to don our 3D glasses and a short animated film was shown but I was uncertain as to why I should have to wear my glasses then as there was no 3D effect, however soon it was time for the main film to begin. Well, after a few minutes I still could see no 3D effect. I whispered to H "are you getting a 3D effect"? And, yes he was. I gave my glasses another clean with the wipe that had come in the bag with the glasses and tried again. No, no 3D. So I decided to take them back to the pay desk and ask for another pair, as these, clearly, were not working! I rummaged in my bag for the plastic bag and brought out - what's this - my 3D glasses! I had been wearing my sunglasses!!
So, I enjoyed the rest of the film and at the end told H what I had done. He is still laughing!
Great film, by the way.
