Lent Day 7 Under The Sea 3-D

One Friday night ritual with my Dad was watching "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau." The viewing always inspired a weekend of adventure involving either fishing, clamming or swimming. While "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau" seems not to be run on television anymore, the DVD can be purchased on the internet.

My Dad and I were able to relive that spirit of Clousteau Adventure with a recent screening of Howard Hall's **Under the Sea 3-D**" documentary. Since my Dad had forgotten his eyeglasses, he was concerned that he would be unable to see the action. Never to fear, the IMAX Museum of Discovery provided the 3 D glasses and my father enjoyed his first ever 3-D movie on a six foot story tall movie screen. This undersea documentary is no longer confined to the television set.
Narrated with a lightly serious tone by Jim Carrey, **Under the Sea 3-D** takes the viewer under the waters of the South Pacific. In 50 minutes, the ticket buyer witnesses the world's most venomous fish, the Stonefish, stalk it's prey. There are moments of beauty in the South Seas as Leafy Sea Dragon regally glides near an Australian reef. Yet, it is the majestic puppy-eyed Sea Lion that the audience members will remember. An endangered species, the puppy eyed sea Lion pleads with the ticket buyer to accept their stewardship of planet Earth.
