Tonight's movie was John Carter. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0401729/ Seeing the previews for this movie made me really want to watch it.
have to admit it was rather fun to watch. It was almost Steampunk in a
way, the ships in the movie were very high tech meets primitive. The
story was very complex and the acting was pretty good as well. I feel
like the story was almost too complex to truly be understood in one
We start the file with John Carter trying to get
supplies to mine for gold in his newly discovered gold mine. He has
quite the attitude about pretty much everything. It takes quite a while
before you give a crap about John Carter, because of his attitude. He
angers the wrong people gets in some trouble, running from the trouble
he gets into more trouble only to find this cave and strange object.
Next thing he knows he isn't in Virgina any more.
You can tell
that this was a big budget film with lots of special effects. This made
it very fun and pretty to watch. However it feels like they tried to
cram too much into the movie and none of it really gets explained or
fleshed out really well. This would have made a great TV series or even
an excellent roleplaying system. However as a movie goes it felt very
compressed, I have to say I was expecting more from this film.
of the disconnected feeling from the story lines and the randomness of
some of the scenes I have to rate this film lower than I would like.
I rate this film three out of five smiley Mike heads.
Worth watching just don't be distracted you will miss things, lots of things.
