Un-Expectations

I took my 4 year old son and my wife (or did they take me?) to the movie UP! over the weekend. First off, I am loving the glorious 3D action that is making it's way back into theaters. It is good to see the industry figuring out that if you don't enhance the experience, it's far easier/cheaper to just download the movie and/or wait for Blockbuster to release it. The 3D experience is one worth paying for, and seemingly only available in the theaters. [Note to self for future post: Why can't you have 3D at home? And is it possible to have it in games?]

I didn't start this post to talk about 3D though, but a small surprise about the movie - which led me to thoughts about gaming, kids, and all that jazz. Does the expectation of certain entertainment mediums skew our views on how it is perceived? More after the break.
