Goddess and I just got back from the movie theater, where we saw a 3D showing of “The Hobbit“.

It’s the first movie that we’ve watched in a theater in a couple of years.  And our first 3D movie ever.

Well, not counting the TV replay of that horrific (not horrifying) “Jaws 3D” that came out in 1983.

And the 45 minutes of commercials, with just a small number of movie previews, reminded us why we don’t go often.  Nothing like turning an almost 3-hour movie into a 4-hour slog.

But the movie was good.  As were the 3D effects.

We were thankful for the intermission, plus the opportunity to buy beer at the concession stand.
