Below contains some possible spoilers about Bolt which I just saw today, in 3D.
Just thought I’d send a few lines about my Bolt experience. Bolt was definitely more than I had expected. I thought the humor of the hamster Rhino would be overdone and corny, but it was actually quite good. The moonlit scene above the pound was perhaps the most beautiful, and Bolt had an amazing character about him. I really felt for him. Disney has the sense of emotion and canine mannerisms down pat.
It was a very heartwarming story, and I liked being taken through a variety of emotions. The fact there was a 2nd Bolt was very nice as well, and I really wanted to hug them both. When the 2nd Bolt ran off being scared, I did feel some concern as to his welfare.
At the end, when they zoomed out, I did feel a little sad it was over. I know it was a happy ending, but I can’t help feeling a little sadness. I guess cause there isn’t more of Bolt to see. I really like that he was able to finally be a dog, that was especially touching to me.
In all, definitely worth the extra for the 3D. I almost can’t imagine watching it without the 3D now. They could have done a few more popping out of the screen moments, but I liked how natural Bolt looked in the 3D. Even Penny, some scenes her hair just jumped out of the screen. Very nicely done. If they have the DVD in 3D, I’ll go for that, unless I have a Blu-Ray player by then, which I will go for that version. I really hope to see a making of. The animators are some of the luckiest people. I know they worked their asses off to get there. John Lasseter has perhaps the best job in the world.
Even now, I'm still somewhat affixed to Bolt's world. I loved the 2nd Bolt very much too. Still a little sad it's over. I can't imagine they won't release it also in 3D. A bit money pot here. Easily one of my favorite movies of all time. Right now, I'm still absorbed in the Bolt-Space of this film, so can't think of much else than the feelings it covers over me.
