When I came out from seeing Interstellar in IMAX, I just wanted to be alone. I felt adrift, having returned from a journey that was intimate and the stake were high and had this overwhelming emotion wash over me. I'm a parent and there were several scenes in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar that just grabbed my heart and did not let go. I only wanted to rush home, hold my kids and hug them.
I went to see Oz the Great and Powerful today and timing worked out well. I rushed in, grabbed a seat right during the Iron Man 3 trailer was finishing and the movie just started. Perfect timing. However, I did have a bit of sticker shock: I paid $14 for a ticket to see the film in 3D. I could write a whole post on why the price of the movie ticket wanted me to stop going to the movies. I thought $10 would be expensive enough and I misread the listing online, thinking I was attending a non-3D screening. No such luck.
