haha it looks pretty cheesy :P is the movie really that bad? even fucking avatar was worth it for the pretty 3d trees and clouds and shit..
There was an absolute zero redeeming quality to the movie. Ok, maybe 0.0000000000001% is in order simply because of glimpses of the cleavage and ass of the lead female charater - whatever her fucking name was. But she was so photoshopped, she looked like a live doll, rather than real female. She didn't need it either, as you can see:
Tho, I wish she was in bare form in the movie, would have made it more watchable, for sure.
And the John Carter character couldn't be more 1 dimensional, even if he tried. I think a soaking wet cardboard cut out of him could do a better job acting than that useless dolt.
Avatar, for all its flaws, was pretty fucking awesome from FX standpoint. I went to see it in 3D and my only regret was that I waited so long that by the time I wanted to see it again stoned, it was already out of the movie theaters.
The dragon flight scenes and jungle shit was pretty epic. My goal was to load up some awesome psy/chill on my mp3, noise isolating headphones, and a fat spliff before hand - shame I only got to do it in my home movie theater. I actually have a pretty decent set up in my "home movie theater" - 120" projection screen, Epson 1080p projector, 7.1 surround - Avatar, though sadly not in 3d is the shit to test your hifi system out.
For all it's cheesiness and stupid carribean accent and fugly cat-like creatures resembling Indians if they were from Ethiopia, it had eye candy to spare, which in my book is a good entertainment, albeit not much on substance. If you try not to ponder it too much, it's actually very enjoyable flick.
Oh, and that panther thing was bad-fucking-ass, def deserves its own spin-off like Alien vs Predator or some shit.
Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate
