Before Eli got sick again, we went to see Bolt on Friday afternoon (in 3-D). It's a terrific movie, very funny, and while it may not be as good as a Pixar film, it's close. The writing is extremely intelligent, and it's funny for both kids and grown-ups.

Plus, I think this is the best use of 3-D I've ever seen, so if you get a chance to see this in high-definition 3-D, it's a real treat. Instead of creating a bunch of phony effects (push that broomstick toward the audience, part 79), the 3-D effect is completely natural, and it's spectacular.

Oh, and if you're wondering how this compares to Madagascar 2 (we see all of these movies, because it's fun to go together), Both Eli 7.3 and I thought Bolt was much better. Madagascar 2 is funny, and your kids will enjoy it, but Bolt is a better film.
