The things that pissed me off the most about the reviews I read
3. The same reviewers that said the plot was difficult to follow gave high marks to Lord of the Rings. Um. What? If you can follow LotR you can follow this. It's a low bar, frankly.
2. The same reviewers that said the characters in this lacked much depth and character gave high marks to Cowboys and Aliens. For fuck's sake, seriously? Half the time they're almost the same characters.
1. By FAR the most infuriating, I came across several reviews that said the movie had "too many Jar Jar Binkses". What the hell does that even MEAN?!?!?
>I agree, John Carter has a very simple plot. So how did the film makers botch it so bad?
Have you got specific complains, or just a general grousing?
I thought they did a decent job, all things considered. Almost 100 years have passed since Princess of Mars came out, there's inevitably going to be changes in making a movie. And the original story was a first person narrative, always a bit awkward to make into a movie. Also: it needs to be a movie, not a book, there's going to be changes due to that too.
