Monsters vs. Aliens 3D

Yesterday we asked the babysitter to come by and watch the kids while the wife and I went to the movies to see Monsters vs. Aliens 3D.

The movie itself is fine. The animation is great, it has plenty of gags, references and memorable moments, but the story isn’t all too interesting. Of course compared to most of the monster movies of the 50’s it does have a better plot. The scene were the presidents greets the alien robot is especially great with references to more than a few great movies.

What really made it interesting for me was the 3D part. Of course you had to sit there using silly glasses but the effect was quite convincing. They didn’t do a lot of gimmick shots were everything is coming straight at your head, but for me that was fine – I mainly liked the 3D effect for the simpler scences were it just added a great feel of depth to the movie.

I definitely recommend seeing this movie in 3D – and I hope more of the new animated movies will be shown in 3D as well.
