Every few years someone in Hollywood decides to put out a film in 3-D, hoping to recapture a little of that 1950s magic, when well-groomed youngsters thought nothing of wearing nerdy red and blue glasses through a nausea-inducing 60 minutes of bad sci-fi. Director James Cameron (Terminator, Titanic, etc.) is the latest sucker trying it, with a December 2009 release scheduled for his highly anticipated 3-D computer-animated wank-fest, Avatar. (If it ends up looking anything like The Polar Express we're definitely gonna have to pass; those plastic-looking kids still give us nightmares.) However, if you like your 3-D a little more old school, however, check out the screening of the 1953 classic It Came From Outer Space midnight Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane.
