    Big, bombastic and gorgeouslooking fantasy that was great fun. A bit oldfashioned, it feels strange to watch large fights without the camera all over the place.

    Kind of glad I went into this with low expectations, because I ended up enjoying it a lot more than I would have otherwise. John Carter is a mess narratively and has incredibly dull, uninteresting characters - but it's some good, pulpy fun reminiscing in my childhood favourites in the science fiction and fantasy genres. It feels very familiar due to how influential Edgar Rice Burroughs, the original writer of the hundred year old series, has been on most sci-fi…

    My sister and I decided to use our free tickets at the mall, and we decided to watch this because it was the only film that seemed interesting to us. I was confused the whole time. I couldn't follow the story, and it was just really weird.

    So, it was a box office flop.
    Or was it?
    From a fantastic budget, and the ridiculousness around the name, and the fact that it didn't do terribly well in America, sure it's a flop. But it made its money and I tell ya owt for nowt. I liked it.
    I liked it a lot.
    It's considerably better than the Star Wars prequels and the story's a million times superior to fucking Avatar.
    The CGI is lifelike. That is supposed…

    I'm not sure if I was meant to have enjoyed this as much I did but John Carter is far from the mess that its financial floundering suggested. Andrew Stanton's grand and colourful space opera is full of heart and packed to the rim with cheese but it's incredibly enjoyable.

    Yes, it's DNA is inherited from Lucas' Star Wars and this film has been unfairly dismissed as a misjudged and inadequate copy but the fact is that George Lucas simply…
