Last night I was able to go see a pre-screening of the new Sandra Bullock movie Gravity courtesy of a Klout Perk.
I had to option to bring a guest, and as Momma Boom and I don't get many 'just the two of us' outings anymore, I asked her to be my plus one.
So after work we mosied on over to the Lennox AMC here in Columbus, and got in the longest line. It was like...Black Friday, but for a movie.
We got in, got our snacks, and settled in. Then Mom dropped a bomb shell on me.
'Oh this movie is 3D?'
'Yeah, uh, I guess so.'
'Oh. I've never seen a 3D movie before.'
So then the idea of a 3D movie started to make Momm a little uncomfortable. Yeesh, I was feeling kind of bad. The very first 3D preview was for the new Hobbit installment. Some weird J.R.R. Tolkein creature goes scooting across the screen, all up close and comfortable 3D like, and Mom gasps and looks at me like 'What in the ever loving hell Whitney?!?!?!' Except my mother doesn't curse.
Anyway the movie started, and she was fine.
The actual movie was pretty good. Not exactly what I was expecting. There was no build up or back story; the action starts pretty much 5 minutes in and then you're not out of crisis mode until the end.

So it was a great girl's night out, and we both enjoyed the film. Thanks again Klout peeps!
