Not exactly as enthralled by Avatar as the rest of the world seems to have been, I wasn't really sure what to expect watching something that served as the inspiration for it. But to my surprise, I enjoyed watching John Carter. And of course it didn't hurt that the lead didn't turn into a blue creature and maintained his, uhm, "regular" (hot) human form on Mars. Hihi.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was pretty entertaining. There were a lot of really funny moments... Of course you can't remove the cheesy lines (it IS a fairy tale, after all), but it was a fun ride anyways. Expect something really weird at the end though, which I suppose is not that weird when you discover where the Director hails from. I don't really want to spoil it for anyone who might want to watch it.
