Nutcracker Mariinsky Ballet

Here is a beautifully staged ballet with talented dancers, great sets but the editing just gets in the way. During ever dance the camera kept moving with the dancers, demanding the viewer follow its focal point, then there was a cut, a new perspective about every 15 seconds. very frustrating. We want to see this dance as the audience does, only closer. It could have been sensational! There was no sense for the choreography or a chance to let our eyes adjust and roan around the stage. Also, there should have be more advertising. I saw one movie preview for this and had to really fight to find movie times and locations.

Overrated 3D

The production was fine, but nothing special. The 3D aspect was a complete waste of effort and did nothing to enhance the film.

3-D Headache and no Sugarplum Fairy

From the boring, pale, washed-out ombre-dyed pinkish costumes of the cast, which then are shaded darker by the STUPID 3-D glasses which gave us all headaches to the fact that there was NO SUGARPLUM FAIRY?!? this sucked. The only redeeming thing is that my kid could eat and drink in the movie theater. For $5 more per seat, we could have seen the real Nutcracker by the Pennsylvania Ballet, live... which is what we'll do next year!
