John Carter (of Mars): go see it

We finally saw John Carter on Saturday night. It was great fun! To me, it was reminiscent of the Saturday afternoon matinee, "Family Classics" style of film, like Journey to the Center of the Earth or Jason and the Argonauts.
It strayed from the storyline of A Princess of Mars, but not terribly so. If you enjoy sci-fi/fantasy adventure movies, I think you'll like this. (we saw the 2D version)

Yeah, that's pretty much my feelings as well. Nothing Jasoom-shattering, but entertaining.

This is good to hear. I was supposed to see it last weekend, but my partner got sick and we had to cancel. Hopefully I'll get another chance this weekend - it looks like the kind of movie that should be seen in a theatre.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing this film, but every time I read a review by some so-called film critic, it gets a slating?

Mind you, one man's crap is another man's gold.
