    Well, as for "why", as a movie, it's not very good: It's from the director/producer of "Fly Me to the Moon", and--while I can't say whether Fly's 3D was as good, never having seen it in theaters--that one pretty well closed the door on "foreign" CGI ever being taken seriously in this country. Sammy's CGI is only slightly better, but if I say "Foreign CGI family film", and you picture a certain plot and genre, well, US studios do too. You'd also be right. (But the 3D is pretty amazing, on a theme-park level: The discussion we had on one board was "Where should the director be working for 3D CGI, instead of on his own?--Pixar? Dreamworks, they buy everybody?") For those who just want to take a look at the darn thing on their PS3 or smart-player, and don't want to go into foreign import investment, it's available as a VOD on Vudu.com for $7, but the attempt to raise the banner for the movie is starting to reach cult-like proportions for reasons not necessarily having to do with the movie.

    Yeah, I was thinking of getting it to show off the 3D, don't care about the story. Fly me to the Moon I have in the old field-sequential format. Funny, I was at a science museum years ago and they charged about $10 to watch a 20 minute 3D film. It was just 20 minutes from Fly Me to the Moon.
