John Carter was good. I think Taylor Kitsch was good as John Carter and Mark Strong (if you don’t recognize his face, you might recognize his voice) offers good support as a mysterious villain. Lynn Collins is the alien princess and she has a nice chemistry with Kitsch.
This is the story of a Civil War veteran who is transported to Mars and gets involved in another civil war. If the movie is not great, it is pretty fun and I’d like to see a sequel. For a movie that is over 2 hours long, I thought the pacing was good. If the people of Mars have death rays, the question is why do they still fight with swords?
There has been a lot of talk about the cost of the movie. I don’t find such talk all that interesting. I hope the movie does well and I hope there are sequels. If there are not sequels, it will not lessen my enjoyment of the movie.
I did not see Eddie Murphy’s new film, a Thousand Words. I did not feel interested. Reviews are not good.
The Hunger Games trailer looks better each time I see it. I think the movie will be good. I might pick up one of the books before the movie opens.
