Day V: Lemurs

We've seen a bunch (five?) of movies in theaters this year and the first three showed trailers for Island of Lemurs: Madagascar during the previews. I was pretty excited about this because I am a huge fan of every noun in that title. It didn't show up in theaters close to me when I expected it to, so I had to do some sleuthing. Turns out it's an IMAX film and it was showing at a theater in the museum of natural history. Then I learned it was a whopping 39 minutes long; still, I would not be dissuaded. Got to the theater, paid my money, and then I learned it was a 3D movie. I really, really don't like these--now the brevity appeared to be a blessing. It was okay, with lots of good lemur footage and talk of island ecology frustrations. I think I got my $5's worth of entertainment, although it was weird that Imagine Dragon's On Top of the World was featured in the trailer and wasn't part of the movie at all. Some puzzling details but a good experience in the end, especially when we were routed (of course) through the gift shop to exit and found these magnificent wings.
