    John Carter is a fun movie but missing something. That "something" might be some explanation about Tharns or a more fulfilling ending.

    Nett in 3D, leider bleiben die Charaktere zu flach und blass. Ein eher vollkommen unverdienter Kassenflop...

    Not perfect by any means...but it could have been much, much worse. I think the biggest problem was treating it as a tentpole CGI action movie, rather than a smaller story about John among the Martians.

    It has all the components of a big blockbuster science fiction fantasy, but it just doesn't come together like it thinks it does. I still am not sure what it is... a lack of charisma? Bland dialogue? Miscasting? I don't know what it is... the plot just seems weak and lacking true thrills. The special effects are sometimes excellent, while sometimes they are pretty terrible.

    I can see how some people would hate this, and others would enjoy it... for…

    This is easily my favorite film with a crummy first 45 minutes and a horrifically miscast lead. Lynn Collins is as perfectly cast as Taylor Kitsch . . . isn't.

    That moment when John is slaying Tharks in between remembering his lost family . . . Imagine that moment if the script had worked. Oh what might have been.

    So a lot of dumb shits hate this movie. This movie is NOT that BAD. People are just assholes who would rather watch more shitty Fast and Furious films. I'm sure that if jagged metal robots fought martians in this it would have been a hit. Bullshit. I have read the first four novels and this film greatly expands on them. It roughs out a lot of details and plot holes from the original novel. The only grip that I…

    존 카터가 자신의 모습을 처음으로 세상에 드러냈던 때는 지금으로부터 딱 100년 전인 1912년이었지만, 내가 그를 처음으로 만난 지는 몇 년 되지 않는다. 어렸을 때 나는 과학소설에 별로 관심이 없어서 아이디어 회관이나 동서추리문고 같은 장르 문고 역시 읽은 기억이 없다. 몇 년 전이 되어서야 [화성의 존 카아트]라는 제목으로 축약 번역된 바숨 시리즈 첫 작품 [화성의 공주]를, 그것도 직지 프로젝트의 디지털 변환된 판본으로 읽은 것이 나와 카터와의 첫 만남이었다.

    상당히 뒤늦은 만남이었지만, 나는 카터의 모험담에 금세 빠져들었다.…

    Hey, all of you people who thought Star Wars Episode I-III was the shit - Andrew Stanton made a movie just for you! Edgar Rice Burroughs-adapted John Carter about the young man who somehow ends up in the middle of a big conflict on mars may serve some cool imagery - but those barely works even as a blatant distraction from how soulless and empty the movie really is.

    What this space-adventure…

    Pouring one out for Taylor Kitsch's career.

    I...don't know how to rate this movie. From a critical standpoint ("is this any good?") I gotta say that it probably deserves a 1-star-rating. On the other hand, if we're talking about how purely enjoyable it is, I would give it 5-stars. No hesitation. So let's cut the difference and make it 3.

    I don't think I've ever giggled so much during a movie. The actors, in the most serious tone of voice,…

    It’s movies like this that almost make me wanna watch Johnny Depp’s “The Lone Ranger.” Why? Well, initially, I’d heard so many bad things about “John Carter” that I wasn’t going to watch it. However, over time, I gradually heard a few people, I trust, say it wasn’t really that bad. So, me, loving this type of Flash Gordon space opera adventure B-movie type stuff thought, “What the hell,… I’ll check it out.” And sure enough, I really like it.…
