I'm probably one of the dozen or so people who not only saw John Carter in theaters but thoroughly enjoyed it. It is not without its flaws but it is an earnest and lovingly old-fashioned science fiction/adventure movie in the vein of Star Wars and Avatar. Perhaps that is because the original John Carter novels inspired Star Wars and Avatar in the first place. Fx are great and the action is entertaining. The alien dog sidekick (yea it has one of those) is what Jar Jar Binks should have been. This thing was hilarious! The movie itself contains a self-contained story but you can tell they were hoping for a sequel. Cuz that's gonna happen, right =/?
