Was there going to be movement in the seats? Maybe there will be wind? Or maybe, the theater will have bursts of smell?
Upon purchasing our tickets we were handed our cutting edge 4D experience!
Excuse me, but hasn't scratch and sniff cards been around for decades?
I had clearly not done my homework on what 4D meant. We had ALL thought it was going to be added to the 3D experience. We were wondering why they had not given us 3D glasses to wear. We looked to see if any of the other moviegoers had 3D glasses. Maybe we had been missed. Nope, no 3D glasses were anywhere in sight! The scratch and sniff card was it.
Our group of Back to School 4D movie critics were ready to do their job. There were eight different smells to scratch and sniff on the cards. It was pretty exciting when the first prompting came up on the screen to scratch #1. They all used their popcorn, buttered, and candy coated scented fingers to scratch the card. Hmmmm, It didn't smell at all like what it was suppose to. The kids anxiously awaited for the next prompting. Scratch, sniff, it didn't smell any different than the 1st. The kids looked to Papa and I thinking they were not doing something right.
Among our little movie critics it was decided that the movie was great but the 4D Aroma-Scope hype was a complete flop!
Tip to the 4D movie making executives:
Packaging the individual scents to protect them from absorbing the other scents would have been the true technical advancement. DUH!
