@mfeige I really and truly did love John Carter. I had ZERO desire to see it, but it won me over. I was prepared to hate!

@andrewstanton John Carter was amazing.I felt this oddly good feel of nostalgia I’m 90’s kid after watching made me think back to good times

@andrewstanton was a really interesting person to listen to during @LATherocomplex QA for John Carter. He really hit a home run on the film

In short JOHN CARTER is what I wished THOR was. Have a few minor quibbles but overall I totally dug the experience.

Enjoyed John Carter more the second time as I was able to follow better. But the issues remain. Still, it’s fun. More in a few.

John Carter (aka John Carter of Mars) is MUCH better than it looks. A great sci-fi film. Plan on seeing it!

JOHN CARTER is amazing. Space Lawrence of Arabia. This generation’s Star Wars. Great @LATherocomplex screening with Andrew Stanton too.

JOHN CARTER is a family spectacle with incredible action. Like others before me said, lacks some connective tissue but I still lapped it up.

Omg y’all John Carter is like legit the shit! Omg it’s sooooooo good! Action romance cutest ugliest little sidekick! Every sense of epic!!!!

The 3D on John Carter is sooo good! I promise it’s not a CGI star wars ripoff! Great story! Really good! Bad Disney marketing bad!!!

@sarikelso Thanks! I really, really appreciate it. And John Carter is very fun! Far from perfect, but still quite pulpy and enjoyable.

@LATherocomplex Grapevine was closed, 4.5 hour drive via alternate route through Mojave to get there tonight–but it was worth it! Thanks!!

@andrewstanton thanks for making a truly enjoyable scifi that was fun for my whole family. My 3 sons LOVED it! Can’t wait to see it again!

JOHN CARTER contains the ugliest cute monster (or something like that). I adore Woola –

Back from @LATherocomplex’s John Carter IMAX Screening. In a few words: A lot of fun. An action adventure that actually took your somewhere.

Really glad to hear JOHN CARTER is good. Now, if only Disney’s marketing can convince everyone else!

  • il y a 2 acteurs X-Men Origines:Wolverine, pas semeeulnt Gambit mais aussi Lynn Collins qui jouait Kayla Silverfox, la petiet amie de Logan, tue9 par Dent de Sabre.

  • I wondered why there was all this useless earth buildup in the beginning and why a whole new storyline with the therns was so necessary when the original was awesome by any standard. The stuff about the ninth ray was actually kind of boring. I did love Woola. The thing about Zodanga being a floating city was entirely out of the loop and why was it necessary to make John Carter some kind of rebel who finds himself when in the books he always described himself as a “gentleman from Virginia”. Well, at least the spirit of the books had not been obliterated. Its not like what happened to poor Ang of Avatar infamy!

  • Mark Linthicum …. he’s my trailer cutting buddy and the guy i’m doing the docu about ERB with.
