    Watching "Gods of Egypt" reminded me so much of "John Carter" that I just had to do a rewatch. Likewise this is a fun adventure movie that gets away with more violence than you'd expect because of non-red blood.

    The thing that always mesmerizes me the most is how much the set pieces remind me of the Star Wars prequels. There are so many things that George Lucas straight up stole from this and crammed into his movies. Yet in…

    ...a unique and abashedly astounding tale. It simply works because it was fun-driven and charmingly mysterious.

    I would kill for a body like Carter himself.

    Disney refrains from live action movies recently, with this and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" being exceptions on occasion. If it works, it's like what Nintendo does with Mario. They milk it and reboot it forever. This is a fantasy/science fiction/character-driven/too many genres for a movie. It tries to be everything, while doing nothing new to benefit much. Sure, the CG is good, but it's just plain forgettable, and surprisingly unfaithful…

    Yo estoy en el club de los que no entienden, viéndola por 3º vez, dónde falla. ¿Por qué es una mierda? ¿Críticos que se abrazaron muy fuerte porque alguien había adaptado mal SUS novelas?

    El marketing. Recuerdo que la cagaron pero bien con un trailer que no transmitía épica ninguna y una campaña confusa. Y que no formara parte de una saga, sino que fuera el intento de fundar una.
    A ver si dentro de 20 o 30 años...

    It still hurts that they chopped off the "and the Princess of Mars" from the title. The granddaddy of science fiction space operas gets a new facelift, and bombs at the box office. Hardly exceptional, it still didn't deserve all of the hate it got. Worth a watch as a fun popcorn movie.

    Al cinema, a grandi attese corrispondono grandi delusioni. È una regola. Ma vale anche il contrario: a piccole attese corrispondono piccole soddisfazioni. Sono quelle che ho provato durante la visione di John Carter. Spifferi, voci e post vari avevano lasciato trapelare pochissima considerazione per il film di Andrew Stanton. Devo dire che mi sono divertito, e molto, con due ore tirate a pieno ritmo.John Carter parte, riparte e riparte ancora con tre prologhi a cui corrisponderanno due epiloghi; poi il…

    [...] Kein Wunder, denn entscheidend für das Popcorn-fordernde Filmerlebnis sind nun mal die Figuren. Man will mit ihnen fiebern, man will sie lieben, sie hassen, man will irgendeine Form der Bindung entwickeln. Das funktioniert hier von Minute Eins an nicht. Kitsch beweißt, nach dem gescheiterten SAVAGES, erneut, dass seine einzige Qualität der offensichtlich regelmäßige Kampf mit der Hantelbank ist, Lynn Collins steigt direkt auf diesen Level ein und der schauspielerische Unterbietungs-Wettbewerb ist entfesselt.
