 Oh ... and for a movie titled Hunger Games, the actors seemed well fed :)

I just want to bitch slap everyone on this site so eagerly jumping on this film but didn't give John Carter a thought. Yeah ok maybe you feel like a little girl all over again with all the other tweenies out in the theater but damn you you all should be exorcised from this site and any other "genre" site.

I'll see it next week ;)....oh maybe not I'd rather see Wrath of the Titans. Well maybe in 2 or 3 weeks I'll see a matinee with no girls screaming and crying in my ear.

Only reason I'm going to see this movie is my son (a Tween) read the books and wants to see it badly.

Are you sure that's the only reason?

aegrant 3/24/2012 5:04:31 PM

yeah - and I just saw it. 2hours and 22 minutes of meh - there were some good parts, some very boring parts and some very predictable parts. I give it a solid C, no or -

Best part was when they showed Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter preview - of course the tweens had no clue what it was

that said no plus or minus but it took out the plus symbol

Wiseguy, I wanted to see John Carter but, it was only playing in 3d. Wife and I agree 3d is crap/cash cow. Only time we ever see a 3d movie is in imax since that is one of the nicest theatres in the city. Otherwise I am on the anti 3d cash bandwagon hollywood can take there 3d and shove it. Hell I may see Batman twice this summer so a non 3d movie is number one guaranted.

I'm with decepticons2 on the anti-3D thing. We "banned" John Carter the first weekend because it was only playing in 3D and the suped up theatres (Imax, Real 3D experience) therefore a ticket price of $15.75 per adult and $13 for kids.

Luckily we did get a chance the following weekend as 1 screen in my city has it in 2D...1 showing per day at 12:20. Still managed to see and loved it.

Hunger Games. Refused the Imax and just saw the regular screen. Loved it as well.

Sadly, my 3D ban will come to end for Avengers. As much as I don't want to support 3D, my local Imax has reserved seating when you buy tickets. This will be extremely convenient when bringing the kids the theatre on May 4th as we won't have to have them wait in line for great seats for hours. So I'm actually paying the premium more for the reserved seats and not the 3D. That's because Avengers is THE movie for me to see this year and the past 10 years.

Brought my tween son to it, and after the both of us reading the novel, we both thouroughly enjoyed it.  Some of the changes were annoying, but only minorly so.  They didn't leave much for a directors cut expansion which would be nice.  More Woody and Lenny would be very cool.  The beginning didn't seem rushed, which really helped with character development of the main handful.  The ending did seem too rushed.  The mutts weren't explained enough to make you realize their muttation, and they didn't spend their last night listening to a boy dying.  Since the second book is widely accepted as the best in the series, I can't wait to see it on the screen.

@roqujeja

I too thought there were many missing things from the book but this movie already clocks at 2 hours and 20 minutes. Adding more would just slow the pacing of the movie down. I think they did a great job of covering what was necessary.
