Robots   ...   movie reviews

Saturday we went to see Robots at the IMAX theater at the Metreon. It was cute, though of course Pixar comparisons are inevitable, and it doesn't measure up to that standard.

Seeing it on an IMAX screen was kind of weird. For one thing, it seemed kind of blurry, though maybe that was just near the beginning and then they fixed the focus or something. Anyway, I'm not really convinced that the whole IMAX thing is a good idea. But certainly the non-dome style IMAX screen is better than the dome style IMAX screen, I'll say that.

Anyway, it was nice that they didn't play up the romantic interest thing too much. (And for that matter, it was kind of funny that to the extent they did, the main character actually had two romantic interests...)
