So this past Monday, I got to go watch John Carter in 3D!!!! It was supposed to be me, my friend Krysta, and our friend Pat. However, Pat couldn’t make it back into town in time.
Anyway, I had to wait until today (launch day for the movie) before I could post this. I have been dying to post it since I walked out of the theater!! The movie theater was packed.
First off, the movie is based off of the first three books in the Barsoom series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Yes, that is the same Edgar Rice Burroughs that wrote the Tarzan books. The first in the series was The Princess of Mars written in 1912. Now, I am sure you are wondering if a science fiction novel that was written in 1912 could still stand up to the test of time. YES IT CAN! WOW!
Not only did it stand up to it, it outshone it too!
The actors that they chose to play the various parts were excellent choices. The guy that played John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) is a gorgeous hunk that knows how to act well.
There was one character that really stole the movie though. In fact, I want one as a pet!!
It’s amazing when you see this movie and realize how many other movies have taken from this story line.
And if you are thinking that John Carter is some obscure character from a series written in the early 1900s, then you are wrong. Not only did Edgar Rice Burroughs write 10 novels in the series, but there were comic books and even graphic novels. Not only that, but there were movies based on the series.
This is one action packed movie that you will not want to miss. I was sad to find out that Disney will not be making any toys based on the series. I would have loved to have gotten a Woola (the dog thing) action figure! He is just that cute!!
