Is IMAX Worth Being IBROKE?

After seeing Fast Five last Saturday, my FIRST IMAX movie, I wondered how much of the over $83 million dollars they took in on opening weekend came from IMAX viewings. Want my honest opinion? I wrote a song about it. Like to hear it? Here it goes!! (In Living Color…you know you watch).

Okay, here’s the lowdown: the movie was $11.50 and the only difference that I could tell is that 1. the screen is larger and 2. you can pretty much see the film from any seat. The picture quality was just as good as it is in a “normal” viewing. The sound quality is about the same too (don’t let these theaters fool ya)!

Honey, please don’t waste your money, unless you enjoy watching movies on an even larger screen. One thing I can say is that seeing Tyrese, Vin Diesel, AND Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on that screen were worth the extra bucks, but NOT for the “IMAX Experience.” What do you think about IMAX and this film?
