Two more sleeps

Greetings gentle Barsoomians ! Only two more sleeps -I saw THE MOVIE last Saturday night at the Disney Burbank Studio. They showed a Disney ‘in house’ sizzle real before the movie. It REALLY made me want to see the movie right away – and I did. I laughed, I cried, and I wanted to see it again immediately. I’ll be posting my thoughts on the movie soon. But for now I leave you with “two more sleeps !.” – Jeff

  1. Wish you were here to go with my sis and I to the IMAX opening midnight showing! Seems none of our friends can make it, though we’re getting with a couple for another viewing on Sunday. πŸ˜€ I’m DYING to go back to Barsoom!!! I can’t get the film out of my head!!

    Dragging my wife to see it Friday during the day.

    I’m glad you liked it Jeff, or at least I get that impression. πŸ˜€ I can’t wait to see it. I haven’t been this excited about a movie in years.

    • I very much did – it’s quite different than anything I’ve ever seen and not all at the same time. Quite the crowd pleaser too. I can’t wait to see it again.

  4. I am so looking forward to it, but Sunday’s the soonest I can see it. And to add insult to injury, there’s not an IMAX closer than 100 miles (226 haads) away in Tulsa, Okla. that is showing the film. Going to have make a pilgrimage to Tulsa.

    I’ve seen it twice. Last Sunday and last night… I love it! It’s even better on second viewing. Don’t worry, I plan on paying to see it at least three more times… It’s that good. Haven’t seen a movie this fun in a long time… A real crowd-pleaser

    I just returned from Barsoom. Stanton has captured the spirit of the books. Taylor Kitch is John Carter and Lynn Collins is Dejah Thoris in my book. Now to see it again tomorrow evening. Just reveling in the experience. It was too short and yet makes me want to see the next one!

    And he kept the proverbs — all used as an integral part of the culture. I nodded in agreement each time I heard one.

    Such a long-awaited day. And so well worth the wait.

    Barsoomians, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT TAKE ANY WORD FROM THE CRITCS. THEY ARE F******* LYING TO YOU. STRAIGHT UP LYING TO YOU. JCOM IS A SPECTACULAR MOVIE. GO SEE IT.

    P.s. After the movie was finished, I came out of the theater shocked and addicted

    • I think people are cluing into that – I was on LA for a fan screening ( which was amazing ) later I was chatting with a woman by the pool. She said she had learned that JC was a 100 old story and that made it mite intriguing to her. She was taking the whole family to the movie that weekend. Myself, I’m seeing it again this weekend.- Jeff

    Just back from seeing it a second time. It feels like a conversation with an old friend — telling war stories. As others have said, I, too, picked up on more of the detail embedded in the story. Wow! And Woola is a scene stealer the more I see him.

    I saw it this time with two friends — science fiction fans who knew bits and pieces of the story. They both laughed in all the right places, appreciated the tech, the swordsmanship and the general story. One specifically said the battle with the Warhoons was powerful in the interplay of memory and the present action. It moved him. He’s one who will blog about it and spread the word. Need more of them!

    Probably go a couple days and see it with relatives over the weekend. Just wow . . .

    Kaor gentle Barsoomians ! Today is the 1st year anniversary of JOHN CARTER ! I’m reposting last year’s response to my first viewing of JOHN CARTER at an ERB convention LA. The screening was on the Disney lot which was cool in its own. The image below is actually of the theatre in Downtown Disney. – Jeff

  10. John Carter is a gorgeous film. I’m glad that I got to see it with my dad in theaters. It was a great bonding experience as well as an awesome trip that can only be pulled off by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Even a year later, I’m still having high hopes for a sequel!
