Tin Tin 3D at Regent 3 Cinema Te Awamutu – my first 3D movie. The form is more subtle and absorbing than expected and absolutely no problem for one who wears glasses. Yes, there are set pieces flying out at you, and one or two other 3D surprises along with a Snowy misalignment to contend with (could have been my imagination). Viewmasteresque (if that is a word) at times – more psychological than visual perhaps? Some perspective shifts I couldn’t figure out; foreshortened figures and squashed limbs. Style? Design? Not sure. And while I’m playing the critic some of the editing seems a touch rugged for my liking. OK, so a cartoon film which suits the treatment with the jokes, asides and witty visuals coming thick and fast in sympathy with the original. On the whole a pretty impressive project – quite like being there.
