Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D
Let's get this out of the way: I loved it. I'm a sucker for 3-D movies, and if I'd seen this one when I was 12 years old, I'd have stayed right there in the theater and watched it again. Everybody knows the story. The twist this time is that Jules Verne's book isn't a novel. It's nonfiction. So a scientist and his nephew go looking for proof of that. They hook up with a hot mountain guide along the way, fall immense distances without harm, deal with monsters and such, and seem to be having a great time. Sure, the "science" makes no sense. Who cares? This isn't a documentary. Give your inner kid a treat and check it out.
