Re: Movies Seen in 2012

John Carter - I watched this on demand yesterday and I needed sometime to mull it over. While not a great or even good movie, it's not a bad movie. I guess I would rate it mediocre. Everyone was well cast except John Carter, who had not personality what so ever. However the real issue with the movie is that it's crushed under its own weight. It has no time to slowdown, it probably need at least another hour if not a second movie to tell this with some breath. I have not read the book Princess of Mars in a very, very long time. So I'm shady on the adaptation, may have to re-read it, to see where it truly went wrong. I will say this, it was beautifully shot and the effects were amazing.
