In keeping with a movie theme. I'm going to discuss John Carter. Can't imagine why this is NOT the best movie to come along in ages. It's a wonderful, uplifting, funny story written long before Star Wars came on the scene. I say that because some of the creatures and ships will remind you of Star Wars. However, Edgar Rice Burroughs predates George Lucas by a century or so.
Best part of the movie hands down is that John Carter finds his mojo again by realizing you can't really escape your finer nature. I love the fact that he was a Virginian, since I consider that my adopted state.
It's another one of those movies where I don't get the panning by critics (and others). It's clean, good fun with a great moral story. And you just don't get better than ERB. In fact, I want to go back and read the books.
Saddest part, because of the panning and Hunger Games, the movie is not doing well, so there probably won't be anymore. Sigh.
