I'll pass. I'm sure it will look amazing on BD, but I thought the movie was bad. It wasn't Transformers bad, it was more like an X3 bad. All action and there is not a single character worth giving a damn about."...somewhere out there, michael bay now has the basis for his next film...and it's all your fault." - project-blu

you just reminded me of one of the reasons i hated X3, and then made me think of X3, the hot topic mutant league, and the shitty way they killed characters every 10 minutes to ramp "drama." curse you!!!!

Eh, John Carter is better than X-Men 3.
That said, it has some serious problems, but it was a hair above average. Had an enjoyable time while I was in the theater but didn't remember much beyond the score following it.Don't Reach, Young Blood

John Carter was okay. Lynn Collins is uber hot in that.

Basically share same thoughts with others; it was better than X3, Lynn Collins looked hot (lots of tan on her though hardly recognized her at first), and the movie was just okay. X3 I'd give 1.5-2 at best/5, JC 3/5. My kids loved that alien dog thingy.Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen.

I like John Carter, but I don't think it's going to appeal to a modern audience given that it's story was a really old and dated one that would have a hard time appealing to a modern science fiction audience. Also, given that it had very few adrenaline based action moments, it's not going to score with someone expecting Transformers with it's slow methodical pace.The nerd is a tirelessly predictable creature whom the promise of boobies is like a bacon sandwich to a starving wolf. - Yahtzee

I can see I'm in the minority here, but I loved this movie. I walked out of the theater with the same feeling I did when I walked out of summer blockbusters in the 1980s. It was marvelous. This is a preorder for me. And yes, Lynn Collins looked amazingly hot

I hope this helps it break even at least. I didn't think it was great, but it wasn't bad either, and certainly didn't deserve to lose money.

Considering the negative reviews and low expectations I had going in, I actually enjoyed the movie a bit. Fun action, though the story was a hot mess. I'll consider buying it at an eventual sale price.

Looking forward to a blind buy purchase. Plus it helps that Future Shop has a Vita (steelbook like) case as well. Which will contain the 3D version of the film as wellMy DVD/HD-DVD/BLU-RAY Collection
