John Carter - AKA A Princess of Mars

I saw John Carter last night, in 3-D, and it was not half-bad. The visuals, especially the design, were meticulously elaborate. I felt the 3-D action took away from looking at the awesome flying ships somewhat - action in 3D always blurs a little, to my eyes.

The acting was good and there was quite a lot of humor that was actually, well, humorous.

The theater was having a discount night so it was very crowded and more noisy than I really wanted, but that IS part of the moviegoing experience, isn't it? I do wish people wouldn't text or whatever during movies. The lit screens, even from a few seats away, are painful when your eyes are adjusted to the dark.
