    I don't see any way to begin a review of "John Carter" without referring to "Through Time and Space With Ferdinand Feghoot." That was a series of little stories that appeared in the magazine Fantasy and Science Fiction from 1956 to 1973 and had a great influence on my development as a critic. In one of the Feghoot adventures, the hero finds himself on Mars and engaged in bloody swordplay. He is sliced in the leg. Then in the other…

    The long-gestating adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Princess of Mars serials (as well as Pixar director Stanton’s live action debut) is predictably loud, large, and digital, but fails to depict a truly epic scale or capture a real spirit of adventure. Part of this is due to the confounding mythology and backstory surrounding the narrative – think Thor with even more characters and alien races – but it’s mostly due to the terribly fake look of the film. CGI has…

    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…

    This movie amazes me. It was somehow released on film...
