John Carter

I’m getting tired of poor reviews of John Carter, & the reports of the huge losses. Its such a shame, because its a very fun movie. I’m not quite sure what people are expecting. There seems to be some comparisons between John Carter & Avatar, but quite frankly thats like comparing Hot Fuzz to Schindler’s List. The only thing John Carter & Avatar have in common is aliens. Thats it. John Carter is escapist, comic book science fiction tough-in-cheek fantasy. If you go expecting just to have a fun time  & be lightly entertained you might be pleasantly surprised. I recommend seeing this one in 2D rather than 3D though. I didn’t really think the 3D added anything this time round. Watch out for the Martian dog. He’s awesome!

What happened to 2010 & 2011?

The Blog is back. Alas, I had to banish 2010 & 2011 along with a small cast of characters, into Room 101, so no blogging occurred.  They very much deserve to be there. One of them actually has a key to get out, but I don’t suppose he will ever use it,, so goodbye & good riddance, and onwards & upwards in 2012.

For those of you who are not familiar with Room 101, it is a room (& a very funny BBC TV show), where your worst nightmares are banished to.
