I caught John Carter at the last matinee this afternoon.  I have not read the Burroughs novels, so I had very little preconception walking in to the theater that was not part of the trailers I had seen.  My take on it:  four out of five stars.  The suspension of disbelief was not onerous (yes, I’ve studied physics and the leaps were just not plausible, but I was able to go along for the ride anyway.)  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will be seeing it again with my wife.  Generally, action movies give her motion sickness, but we’ve discovered that if she views them in 3-D, they don’t.  (I would expect the opposite, but hey, whatever works.)

One other comment:  Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins) – WOOF!
