John Carter…

It’s been a while since I’ve been to the cinema. I’ve been checking the listings regularly, but nothing has caught my interest. Yesterday I saw an advert on some website for John Carter which caught my eye. The name of the film sucks, which is probably why I never noticed it before, but after seeing the trailer I though it was worth a shot.

I really enjoyed it. The story is pretty neat, provided you don’t try to analyze it for more than a second. The visual effects are fantastic. There is a cute dog/lizard/monster thing that I really want. The leading lady is hot. Most importantly, it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

I went to see the 2D version, but Noons said the 3D version was good too.

If you like Sci-Fi movies I think you will like it.

Cheers

  1. I’ve read a few articles about it. Apparently it’s based on a book from maybe 100 years ago – cutting edge sci-fi for it’s time.

    Though I could be remembering my facts wrong….

    When I first saw the trailer, I couldn’t believe it was a Disney movie!

  2. I reckon the 3D version is right up there with Avatar in spectacular SFX. Sure, not a jungle: it’s a desert, after all. But it doesn’t pretend to be a jungle, so it all works surprisingly well.
    And I agree: the leading lady could make me forget Kate Beckinsale. For a second or two…
    And that dog-thing is hilarious! Mostly because I’ve got a similar one at home:

  3. For those who want to read the books, they are by Edgar Rice Burroughs (author of the Tarzan and Caspeck series as well). Available from project Gutenberg and well worth a read, haven’t seen the film yet but looking forward to it this weekend
