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!
