    March 21st. I was really looking forward to it. I didn't get intimidated by all the bad press.
    But it disappointed me, I can't recommend it.

    I would then suggest watching it again. See how hard you find it to follow this time.

    My problem with that scene was that it was like juxtaposed with his flashback and kind of brought down the whole fight scene. They basically made it into a montage. Would've just much rather seen that fight scene uninterrupted.

    Agreed, I prefer the scene the way it is rather than just one long meaningless fight scene. The flashbacks add emotion and meaning to the scene which otherwise wouldnt have been there. Its the best scene in the movie for me.

    The movie should've been titled 'Fred Savage'.

    It does seem that the majority of the people that actually saw the movie either think it's great or at the very least didn't deserve the reputation it got as some ****** movie that deserved to bomb.

    This was one of my favourite movies this year. Upon first veiwing I thought that maybe someone else should have being cast as John Carter but over a couple more viewings, Taylor Kitsch has grown on me in the role. Lynn Collins is hot. The CGI is fantastic. The action is good and I love that fight scene with the flashbacks and that music in particular too... And the ending is really cool too.

    Andrew Stanton should direct Star Wars although, unforunately, after this, he probably won't get another live action gig at Disney.. at least not for a while.

    I want Andrew Stanton to direct Star Wars Episode VII! But he won't be even in the running because of the box office failure of this film. :(

    I think Andrew's spirits are broken despite him saying its not and Finding Nemo 2 was in the works for a while.

    Andrew would be a good choice because his spirit is broken. now he has to rise up. and to do this he would give everything he has.

    IMO

    Its a shame as he directed a good sci-fi movie in the mould of SW, but he wont get that chance. Stanton was actually my choice for Guardians Of The Galaxy before Gunn got the job, I am delighted with Gunn but would have loved Stanton to get the gig as well.

    The issue Andrew Stanton had with budget and reshoots and the like probably wouldn't happen with a Star Wars film. You're gonna have so many people watching over this and making sure they get this right that he would just have to focus on filming the damn thing.

    Stanton probably learned a lot of hard lessons from JC and IMO would indeed be more effective at Star Wars than, say, some other Pixar director with a clean box office record taking his first stab at live-action.

    Too many clumsy mistakes with John Carter to make him a candidate for Star Wars.
