    Maybe I'm just getting older... but I insist it's the world getting dumber... but aren't at least HALF of the "dug it" reviews full of phrases like "the story was **** and it was dumb as hell but I guess it looked pretty cool"?

    What the **** world? Raise your ****ing game already.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Doc Naysay...sorry, but I LOVED John Carter. Perfect mix of serious/silly and I can honestly say that I have not had the same feelings for a movie since the original Star Wars trilogy. Sadly, because the story is 100 years old and has been mined for it's 'subtle charms' youngsters may feel as if they have seen this before. But that changes nothing. This movie is almost the Anti-AVATAR. Total immersion into a foreign world. From the language to the people to the machines...sure, it's simple. But most well told ADVENTURE stories are. Beautiful to look at. A serious argument pro 3-d and I wish I had bumped to the IMAX cause this movie has depth and beauty that the cartoony Avatar did not have. I had heard that there are times that this is borderline Queen-Flash Gordon, and that's fair...but it's just so charming and...FUN that it's easy to forgive. Great use of all the toys and tools. Most importantly great use of actors. Purefoy/Ciaran Hinds from Rome, Thomas Hayden Church/Samantha Morton/Dafoe...hidden behind mo-cap, hell even Kitsch is likeable/charming in a leading man role. Hats off to Andrew Stanton...all of the $150 million spent on this is up on the screen. Sadly this movie is doomed to not do well enough to perpetuate sequels because this is a story I want more of. Go see it in 3d and if you can in Imax.

    Oh, b.t.w. sorry Kq but Deja Thoris...is HAWT.

    gescom and FBJ like this.

    You don't got to apologize to me... I haven't seen it and therefore have no opinion about it beyond the ad campaign which failed to pique my interest.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    If you see it...and don't like it...it's because you don't want to. It's an extremely likeable movie. Beauty on screen...from the sets/fx/actors...If you don't like it, it says more about you than the movie.
