I wanted to like this movie. And I did. Maybe it helped to watch the original version, which was really a stinker. Anyway, I’ve been a Tarzan and John Carter fan ever since high school. Edgar Rice never got the respect he deserves–he’s well known for his Tarzan books, but I never saw any love for JC. Well, he makes a grand entrance here, and while it’s no blockbuster like Star Wars, it’s a lot of fun, has gorgeous graphics, and there’s gobs of action. No, I can’t explain to you how he can breathe on Mars. Give me a break, all right?
