For all the summer blockbusters I've seen, I think only Star Trek was better. Terminator 4 was competently made, although a waste of acting talent, and Wolverine was a disappointment. The special effects in T2 were a bit overdone, but the composition of the shots was usually clear and not dizzying. I also don't get the claims that the plot was incomprehensible. It wasn't even convoluted. If you can't follow this one, you either spent half of the movie freebasing cocaine in the bathroom, you have a life-threatening case of ADHD, or you couldn't keep up with the romantic subplots in Green Eggs & Ham.
Digital and Disney Digital 3D: wastes of money. When I left Star Trek, I didn't say to myself "Gee, that would have been really good if only the picture wasn't so fuzzy." I don't know how good your eyesight would have to be to tell the difference between a regular film and a digital one, but obviously it must be better than mine. If you can see a difference between 24- and 32-bit color depth on your monitor, then go ahead and pay the extra $3 for the digital film. And the 3-D is a complete joke. In most scenes it is indistinguishable from 2-D, plus the glasses dull the color pallette, which is a real shame with movies like Up.
Advertisement: before T2 began, they advertised the coming of two well-known operas (I forget their names). Opera advertised at a Transformers IMAX film? If someone asks you "Would you rather we get balcony seats at the symphony, or do you want to muck into the mosh pit at a Slayer concert?" and your response is "Which ever one's closer to a place that serves Korean BBQ", then this ad was aimed at you. And me, for that matter.
