  1. I’ve talked to a reporter I know that has seen a preview. He says it is actu­ally a very well done movie with the worst marketing imag­in­able trying to sell it as a YarYar Binks like adven­ture. According to him,
    It is like the old “Conan”, “Tarzan”, “Zorro” and “Flash Gordon” joined into one. Colourful and with a decent, good hero and a proper villain
    A movie, that you want to read under your sheets at night with only the light of your flash light like the books we used to love as kids.

    John Carter” is the movie that “Clash of the Titans” wanted to be.

    EDIT: Oh and yes, now I want to see it even more :-)

  2. I’m so happy to see a good review! I really want to see this movie, and I want to like it — it so seems right up my alley. I was going to ignore all the bad reviews and see it anyway, but this review affirms my initial reac­tion to the previews.
