~~~~~~~~~We did not see the 3D version as yours truly as you must know by now HATES 3D. I do not feel it lacked anything by not seeing it in 3D. Hubby has a weirdness 'line' that he does not like to cross. I step over that line all the time. LOL! And i've seen some awesome movies because of it. This did not step over the line for him. He enjoyed it immensely. I caught him smiling and laughing several times. So Go, See , Enjoy!
~~~~~~~~~~I'm trying to think of some movies i braved and enjoyed and he did not......."Lady in the Water" M. Night Shamalayn. when i asked him why he didn't like it he said it was just too weird....go figure....there are others i cannot think of right now then there are some he misses because they are not action/shoot em up movies. I feel he misses out on some wonderful movies that way but in truth they would probably put him to sleep. Some i have dragged him to that he ended up liking despite himself.........Dragonfly with Kevin Costner, What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams, Ghost with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze, Pan's Labyrinth, The Thomas Crown Affair with Pearce Brosnan.......Brotherhood of the Wolf it was in french and your had to read the screen and he STILL liked it .......i knew he would....and many more......they are just not his normal gun blasting movies and it can be so difficult to get him to step outside the box.
~~~~~~~~~~And you know there are movies i never would have seen if not for him and i ended up loving them.........especially cartoon movies......i just seem to turn a blind eye to them. They are not worth my time. I don't like comedy. Most of the comedy of today i think when you walk out of the theatre or get up from watching the TV you've lost a few intelligence points , its just all so stupid. But hubby loves his cartoons. He really is a boy at heart and i love that about him too. So many times he'll be smiling at Saturday morning cartoons and i can't help but grin not at the cartoons but at my wonderful guy with the big goofy smile on his face. The years just seem to fall way in that moment. He dragged me to Shrek and i have enjoyed those movies immensely, UP, Tangled, WALL-E, so glad i did not miss out on them. So.............to end back to John Carter.....definitely worth a look see. Its a long movie but quite fast paced and did not feel that long. If nothing else it is worth a matinee just to see all these creatures come out of someone's imagination and on the screen.
