Rachel- I'm guessing you mean the red/blue 3D glasses...
No you don't use those, it's in RealD 3D aka Disney Digital 3D which uses lightly tinted glasses and the color doens't wash out at all.
The glasses aren't carboard, instead they're plastic. If you've been to a 3D film in the last 3 years, you may have seen these.
But ya, no annoying red and blue!

Bolt will be shown on Philippines November 26.
Whoa I think this is similar to the US release.
I fell in love with Pixar since Toy Story and now I'm 19 and still loving Pixar films particularly WALL-E and I'm crazy as hell about it.

I am not going to watch this at theathers because for me it just is not my cup of coke a cola.

2nd I am trying to save as much money as I can in hard times like these to help out my family with food and drink and medical needs, an for me at this time buying movie tickets, to see animated fair/or live/action is not A wise move on my part.

3rd reason for not seeing Bolt well I will leave that unsaid, because I dont want to start anything on that or cause waves here, an plus I dont want a cross fire to brake out lol.

ILGAMGnJLA97736: Point A+B taken and understood. And I won't ask about Point C!!!


Also, not sure if you guys knew this yet, but at this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, there's going to be a huge Bolt balloon (and a huge Buzz Lightyear one!!) And Miley Cyrus is gonna be performing the song from the movie too. I think the song is really cute :) You can check out the music video here

Uh, no, the 'Mericans get it on the 21st...which is today! But cheer up, at least you Pinoys get it one day earlier than Malaysia (27th November), one week earlier than S'pore (4th December), and one whole freakin' month before the Aussies (1st January 2009)! Consider yourself lucky, heheh! :P

That's great news, CoCoMeister. The more publicity the better. And I like the music video, is that really Travolta? He looks so... different... :shock:

Anyway, another clip has been released featuring a pair of cats who taunt Bolt from the skylight of his trailer. The snarky scrawnier cat is hilarious, as well as his goofy plumper sidekick! Watch it HERE.

Bolt opens in US Theatres TODAY! Oh boy! :D

Anyone else gets a little reminded of Buzz Lightyear when watching Bolt's character? I mean, they both think they're so powerful/superheroic, when really none of their superpowers/gadgets are real.

Yeah, I thought the same too! I was telling my sis (cos' she was curious about it, since they started the ad campaign in Sing) it's like "Toy Story meets Homeward Bound".

Anyway, there's some new games on the official website! There's "Run Bolt Run", which is your basic Super Mario platformer, and "Mittens' Hot Dog Hideaway", which is an adorable juggling act game. There's also a neat interactive activity called "Rhino Is Your Biggest Fan", where the hamster will act like...you guessed it, your biggest fan as he recites your personal particulars that you have already entered in. He even says my name (though when I tried typing in "Bolt", he didn't mention it :P)!

They folks behind the site also posting up the usual one-two word summary from the critics on the site (like "Fully Awesome" and "Great fun"), and so far the consensus is approving (of course, the Disney folks picked the best quotes). More reliable is the Rotten Tomato rating, which currently stands at 84%, which gives it a Fresh Rating! :D

I have high hopes for this latest effort from Disney Animation Studio...we'll wait and see how the rating evens out as more reviews pour in...

Glad to know that Bolt is getting pretty good reviews. I may actually go see this now.

I just have another question about the 3D glasses: if I go and see it in 3D and I take the glasses off, would it be possible to watch the movie normally from then on? Because sometimes certain video games or anything optical will give me a headache so I may want to watch the rest of the movie sans glasses if it does.

Don't quote me on this, Rachel, but when I've seen 3D films, I've found that watching without the glasses is quite difficult because everything looks sort of blurred and there's red and blue outlines around things. You can still watch it, but it's definitely not like watching a normal film in the cinema.

I'm vaguely tempted by Bolt now...I'm pleased that it's been getting good reviews, at least.

It's a great movie. I teared up toward the end a little :)!

If you remove your glasses it will just look like a perfect double image. I saw Bolt in 3-D, and found it to work quite well. You are probably thinking of the old red and blue 3-D, which I found gave me a headache. Bolt is really good, and it is worth seeing with or without 3-D. But, in 3-D the Up trailer looks amazing. The glasses are not cardboard, they are plastic. They are also comfortable and lightweight, you forget you even have them on. You can keep them, but if you don't want them they are recyclable.

I've always wondered how the animators do A 3D Film... Do they do all the normal animating and then do something else ? or i don't know...

To get the affect of 3-D, they would have to animate two slightly different images, one for the right eye and one for the left. With Real D 3-D, (Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Bolt), both images flick back and forth at a higher frame rate then usual film, which is why without glasses it just looks like a perfect double image, but with the glasses, it gives the illusion of depth. So it is pretty much the same as animating any other film, except they would need two slightly different shots for every frame. To achieve the 3-D affect in post-production, you would have to go back and add in the second images. You can get more info on it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_D
