Journey to the Center of the Earth

Julieta and I went to this movie and we both had an awesome time. It's a 3D movie and well worth the extra $2.00 or so you pay for the glasses. I hope there will be more 3D movies like this made in the future. The Dark Knight would have rocked the house in 3D.

The Dark Knight
