Gary and I went to see John Carter on Wednesday and we both really enjoyed it! It’s based on a story by Edgar Rice Burroughs called The Princess of Mars. It’s exciting and funny and romantic and quite thrilling; the scenes set on Earth are almost always filmed at night or in the rain and the scenes on Mars are always in full sunshine giving the film a slight Wizard of Oz feel.
He gets this doggie sort of alien pet about half way through which is the cutest thing. It has a big blue tongue and slobbers all over him. It’s also so playful and loyal just like a real dog and I want one!
It’s not the greatest highbrow entertainment but it is a fun entertaining film.
