Default Dream House, The Thing, Real Steel

So while I'm hanging with the kids we are watching lots of movies. Yesterday we saw The Thing. It was a typical Monster Movie but the monster effects were super creepy. It was definitely worth watching if you want to see a twist on the "monster".

Then we went to a movie tavern where they serve you dinner during the movie. We watched Dream House. It was not exactly what I thought it was going to be, it actually turned out better. It was twisted even though I could see where it was going. A lot of critics and reviews blasted this movie but I really think it's because it wasn't what it was marketed to be. The kids and I liked it though.

Today we are going to go see Real Steel in a theater that has seats that shake and move with the effects of the movie. I haven't done this before and neither of the kids have either. It should be fun.

You've got some cool theaters near you. We just have regular and one I-Max in Atlantic City.

Real Steel was good but not fantastically awesome. I mostly wanted to see it with the special seats. It felt like a ride. It was expensive so I wouldn't pay extra for the D-Box seats unless the movie was full of action. I did feel special sitting in the reserved seats like that. They had 2 rows total of these seats and the theater people only turned on the ones that were paid for, meaning ours. I guess I'm a sucker. There were people right next to us who sat in the seats and I sort of felt sorry for their kids. Our seats were moving and we were laughing while they sat there unmoving.

This was all in Houston. NC doesn't have cool movies either.
