The big day has finally arrived.
High School Musical 3 opens tomorrow (with showings beginning on Thursday at midnight). And here we have the eternal question. To see it in the theater or not see it in the theater?
And I have threatened to go see it in the theaters before.
There are pros and cons on both sides. Pro: Zac Efron is undeniably hot. Pro: It will probably be entertaining, and hopefully have fewer songs that make me want to gouge my eyes out. Pro: That's about all I can come up with.
Con: Do I really want to be seen at an event that has been marked on tweens' calendars for months by a big red heart? Con: Movies are expensive now, yo. Con: Yeah, still fixated on the whole humiliation factor. Con: I'm still not entirely sure I like these movies.
High School Musical as a pop-culture phenomenon is undeniable, but High School Musical as actual entertainment is still up in the air, at least for me. While it is like crack, in that once you pop, you can't stop, if you asked me if I actually liked it, I would have to pause and think about the question. So....I'm not sure it's worth spending $10 on something I'm not even sure I like. So I guess the verdict is a big old negatory on the actual movie theater viewing experience.
