Owls, Roadrunners and Coyotes….

This morning (yeah it was morning), I went to the movies! It was a preview screening of Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole and the film itself was really well animated: very beautiful to watch and made VERY good use of 3D technology. Yes, the film was predictable (it is after all based on a series of YA fantasy novels), but I really liked the voice acting (Jim Sturgess did an EXCELLENT job of voicing Soren for example). I was rather impressed.

But even better than that was the 3D short film that preceded the movie: it was a NEW Wile E. Coyote short film with the Roadrunner and was absolutely fabulous. I mean the humor was there, the violence was there and the graphics were great! Such detail, such good use of 3D (some 3D is cheesy, but this just WORKED) and well, it's in the traditional spirit of the original Looney Tunes characters! I loved it! It was well worth the wait…

Because wait we did. The theatre had technical glitches that prevented us from seeing the film right at 10am as was planned. Instead we sat and munched on the Kinder chocolate that they fed us to keep us happy while we waited for a whole 40+ minutes before the film could begin. I have never been to a film screener that was delayed THAT much. I mean really, WOW.

It was, however, a good way to spend my morning.
