Gravity 3D = OMG

A  L  O  H  A !
The Thrill Is Gone by B.B. King on Grooveshark

" Enjoyment of the landscape

 is a thrill. "

David Hockney 

" The creative habit
 is like a drug.
 The particular obsession
 but the excitement,
 the thrill 
of your creation
 lasts. "

Henry Moore 

" The thrill 
of coming home 
has never changed. "

Guy Pearce 


Being a film snob
I rarely see
But an old pal
wanted to see
in 3D.

My friend is a 
visual artist,
so his response
would be interesting
even if the film
struck me as
an empty magic trick.

Grumpy me
didn't want to
wear the 3-D glasses
over my eye glasses.
but they were light
and comfortable.

were of upcoming
3D films.

When the Hobbit's forrest
exploded around me,
snow falling,
everything wondrously
yet subtly 
three dimensional,
let's just say that
I was hooked,
even before one of the 
birds flew past me.

I settled in for
technological thrill
of the species
and from the first scene
WAS thrilled
by the visual and moral
wonder of 
leaving our insular
little Earth.

The acting
was superb.

This was more than
a visual display.

A Thrill-a-second
true heroes adventure!

I won't spoil it.

If you are a prig like me,
drop your reserve
and go see this film.

What tale 
(film, TV, Book, myth, project, or poet)
is thrilling YOU
at the moment?

Do share in comments.
