First Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D Trailer
If you haven't already seen this in full 3D in the theater, then I don't suggest you watch it. It's so ridiculously cheesy and so stupid! The only reason it's going to make a lot of money this summer is because people love the 3D gimmick. And that's all this is - a 90 minute gimmick that you'll waste $10 to see! The first trailer for Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D has appeared online, although I've seen it a few times in theaters in front of 3D movies like Beowulf. I don't know if there is anything that can redeem this movie for me. Maybe it's just that I hated the concept from the start, especially with it being set it in the real world with the book and everything. Take a look for yourself.
Rant: Listen to these lines. "We're still falling!" "We're surround by lava!" I think I've heard that on a t-shirt that makes fun of every lava joke ever. "Shut your trap!" I mean, come on… Every last shot in this is setup to work in 3D, and I hate the idea of making things work for a gimmick rather than just making them to fulfill the requirement of telling the story.
