A story about this — 1 year ago
For me, the acid test of good science fiction is how I feel after leaving the theater. If my “normal world” seems somehow alien, the movie worked, and that is certainly the case with John Carter. Taylor Kitsch of Friday Night Lights fame has come of age and totally dominates this saga of a 19th century rouge flung into a conflict on Mars. Edgar Rice Burroughs story is very well adapted by the wizards at Disney and Pixar, and Lynn Collins is delicious as Dejah Thoris, a Princess of Mars. Well done.
