Over the last year...and after my 18 month moritorium on seeing movies in theaters, my son Morgan took me to see Atlantis for Father's Day this past summer. I LOVE a good Disney flick. Well..suffice to say I was underwhelmed by the experience...thought the film was flat and not all that exciting...que sera. Well...today I got the DVD and sat down to watch it again in my main theater here and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!!!! The image..the sound...the effects...100% and then some difference between watching here and seeing it at a theater. I should mention the one I went to is a 3 year old Clearview (can we stick even more commercials in) Cinema's theater...alleged to be state of the art. PHOOEY! I have seen more than a coupla threads on HTF over the years that were HT vrs Movie Theater..and if any single thing reinforced my attitude and viewing habits..it was the significant difference in the presentations I experienced of Atlantis! So I forgo 35 or 70MM and the "wonderful" environment of an audience...know what..you can keep all that! Lemme simply enjoy the movie...the image..the sound..the story. If I want crowds..I'll shop in a mall at Christmas!
