John Carter of Mars


Tries too hard to be the original Star Wars movies.... Succeeds...But nobody wants Star Wars anymore. so it feels Dated. but then the source material is Dated as hell too. so maybe it came natural.

Surprising how silly the CG looks...and theirs a lot of it.
This is Disney with a ridiculous budget, and the CG is off? WTF?.

also its Disney...so they pulled a lot of punches.
I wish someone other than Disney made it. somebody unafraid of violence.

that said...
I liked it.

I actually really liked it. You've got to remember that John carter actually pre-dates Starwars so alot of those concepts aren't ripped off from Starwars. If anything Johncarter the books influenced starwars.

yeah, I meant more the way the film itself was put together.
everything from how it was scored, the weird jump cuts, and the overall pacing.
