Go 3D @ Imax Theatre

Let me share our 3D experience at Imax. Sundate it is!

The film is released by National Geographics. It's about Prehistoric Sea Monsters. May sound boring at first, but thanks to 3D effects, I believe everyone in the theatre enjoyed, specially the kids.

The 3D effect will make the audience believe that the creatures are coming out of the screen, and some kids even try to catch them. Cute! Im kinda expecting some sort of water splashes effects too, wala pala. On our experience kasi sa Philharmagic (of Disneyland) there is.

Anyway, here goes...

Prehistoric Sea Monsters

Prehistoric animals are all organisms that walked or swam, crawled, slithered, or flew on Earth more than 5,500 years ago. The story centralizes on the life journey of a Dolichorhynchops or Dolly.

Dolichorhynchops was a short-necked plesiosaur that used long, paddle-like flippers to fly through the water like a penguin. They grew up to 12 to 15 feet long. But they were no monsters.

a Dolly giving birth

Usually, it can bear 2 babies. These babies started their journey by breathing through the water and up in the air, and searched for their food.

There are friendly and harmless creatures around them. Enormous but not monstrous.

Tusoteuthis was a giant squid nearly equal in size to those that ply the oceans today—with their tentacles stretched out, the ancient cephalopods may have measured 25 to 35 feet long.

largest of these elusive giants ever found measured 59 feet

Ammonites were squidlike creatures that lived inside coil-shaped shells.

ammonites grew more than three feet long.

Protostega was among the largest turtles to ever live.

protostega grew more than 10 feet long.

The baby Dolly, together with her brother and mother, lived here together with the creatures above. After some season, their food (the little fish) will migrate.

The Dolly's must follow their source of food.

Eto na ang fun part! The Dolly's and their friends will encounter Sea Monsters along their journey.

Styxosaurus was a long-necked variety of the marine reptiles. These sea monsters grew upwards of 40 feet long. About half that length was neck, a feature that allowed Styxosaurus to sneak up on schools of fish. Creepy!

little girls scream as the neck of this monster came out of the screen!

Xiphactinus was one of the largest bony fish and is considered one of the fiercest creatures in the sea.

Xiphactinus are 17 feet long monsters (again I heard screams of the kids)

Disclaimer: I think this film is still good for kids. They may just be a little frightened with the size and the 3D effect of the monsters but they will still enjoy while learning. Afterall, the story is about how a Dolly survived her journey.

Moving on...

Tylosaurus was the deadliest hunter of the ancient seas, ready to seize and kill just about any smaller creature that crossed its path with true jaws of death.

Tylosaurus grew more than 45 feet long - kasize ng school bus!

so smaller Tylosaurus are the prey of the bigger Tylosaurus. size does matter eh?

And there are also flying predators! Pteranodons were flying, prehistoric pterosaurs, reptiles related to the dinosaurs.

pteranodons at 6 feet tall! hhmm, big birdie!

The mother was chased by a sea monster. The mother died.
The brother as well was eaten in another part. He died too.
The girl Dolly was also chased but she managed to escape the threat. Though the tooth of her predator is stucked in her flippers.

Only the girl Dolly survived. But she has returned back to her home safely, thus building her own family after.

Fast forward, after several years, a fossil of a penguin-like creature was found. Something was weird in the bones. There was a tooth that was stucked in the flipper. And cute ng ending!

We recommend 3D Adventures at IMAX. Btw, this is just 20 steps away from my office. *winks*

How much for Imax? We don't know. Free invites lang to for Smart Gold subscribers. Enrico and I just love freebies and tipid dates! >(^o^)<
