...certainly better than how its going to be treated...
John Carter reminds me a lot of Rocketeer a pretty good movie that bombs in the theater for who knows whatever reason, but it is still great fun.
I heard a review on MSNBC a few hours before we went to see JC friday night. she claimed it was unwatchable and said she saw many people "walk out of the theater."
Seriously, walk out of the theater bad? Reviewers don't use terms like that lightly right? I started thinking it must be as bad as everyone has been saying. Everyone who hadn't actually seen it.
I almost didn't go.
That's all I need. Drag the wife to another Jonah Hex or Last Airbender. But we went anyway, she knows I'm a huge fan of the books, and have been looking forward to it.
But it was fun. I liked it a lot.
Not the greatest movie ever made to be sure, but it was a pretty good adaptation I thought, certainly not bad enough to "walk out of. I enjoyed it as much as the Sherlock Holmes sequel, and more than the gawdawful American remake of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Hell most genre films I saw last summer like Green Lantern, Thor, Xmen, Cowboys and Aliens, were not any better or worse than John Carter and none of them were "walk out of the theater," bad either.
