This evening I have been watching the movie “John Carter of Mars”.
It was already the plan to go to see this movie with some colleagues, but not a date was set. So last Wednesday I said if this week no date was set I would go see the movie this weekend. This because I really wanted to see this movie in the cinema. No final date was set, so as said I went tonight to see the movie…
I loved the movie. Great story-line. Awesome special effects. And enough humour to keep it entertaining. And of course is Lynn Collins (who plays Dejah Thoris) a lady that pleases the eye very well.
Now I have to admit that I read the books of John Carter a very long time ago, but as far as my memory allows me, I see great differences between the books and the movie. Not that this is something bad, just something to notice and nothing more than that.
That brings me to the most stupid comment made about this movie (as I already posted on Facebook before): “This story of this movie depends so on Star Wars and Avatar!”. The person who said this has no idea what he/she was talking about. The book “John Carter of Mars” was written in 1911/1912… Get it?
The book was written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, who also created Tarzan of the Apes.
At the cinema I noticed that there are some very interesting movies coming our way…. Battleship (from the people behind The Transformers), The Avengers, Men in Black 3 and The Wrath of The Titans. So I think I will visit the cinema quite often the coming time. But the next times I hope to go together with Marion. Yes, for a good movie I will go alone. But with someone close it is so much better!!!
And yes, it is very nice to have a good cinema so close by (10 minutes on a bicycle).
Edit: Already some people pointed out to me that this movie is a flop. As far as I can see it is only a financial flop and that says nothing about the quality of the movie. And yes, the movie got rather some bad reviews. But there is one thing I am 100% convinced of, these reviews are way from objective. This is the world of the big money and the lobbies. And that has its effect on reviews given.
I said it before and I will say it again: If a movie got real bad reviews I have to see the movie. Big change that is a wonderful movie!
