Fly Me to the Moon 3D in Brief

A friend and I went to Boston's excellent Museum of Science today. One of the things we saw was a 20 minute version of the current theatrical release movie Fly Me to the Moon 3D. This was actually a lucky thing, because I got to see what were probably the best 3D scenes in the movie (Saturn V launch, flies cavorting in zero-G, Moon approach and landing) while enduring only a few brief moments of the fly family and other cheesy dialog. I know it's a kids' movie, and you have to be willing to suspend some disbelief, but come on.

The movie is notable in that it was produced fully and exclusively for 3D, and the 3D effects were truly impressive. I was thinking I'd have to see the full movie just to be able to mention it in my outreach presentations. But now I believe I can squeak by with just this mini-version. I still hope kids like it.
