A Review That I’m Surprised To Write

Sooo…a friend dragged me to see John Carter, over some protest.

And holy crap. It did not suck.

As a matter of fact, it rather did not suck at all. I mean, it has as many flaws as you’d expect from a wanna-be blockbuster. But it was much better than, say, the most recent Indiana Jones movie. Or any of the Transformers movies. Or a couple of the Spiderman movies. Or…name any other lackluster sequence-fest(er) that’s come out in recent years.

As a matter of fact, I really enjoyed it.

Whoever slapped together that idiotic movie trailer DID IT WRONG. The movie is different than the way it was marketed. It’s actually A Story! With Characters! And Plot! It was a blast!

No one is more surprised than I am.

See it before it disappears from the theaters.
