I keep seeing the trailer for this movie and i have to say im intrigued by it, Though the fact its Disney keeps worrying me, Anyone know anything about it? or anyone seen it yet? Its scifi looking and looks quite good, but i have limited chance to go to the cinema so i dont want to waste a trip on something thats a bit poo.

Haven't seen it. But most of the danish reviews summarised it as mediocre.

Eh, Disney doesn't necessarily mean bad or childish. Just remember, Pirates of the Caribbean (Black Pearl) was a Disney movie too, and it was pretty awesome.

However, the ads just make this movie (John Carter) seem poor, and reviews seem to back that up. Might be a good waste of a couple of hours though.

im torn, dont get me wrong im not anti Disney, far from it, but im always skeptical when they go off on a tangent, im a massive pirates fan and it got panned by alot of critics and i was very sceptical about it,"jonny depp as a pirate from a disnet ride wtf?????" but i love the series(and the lego game) which is why this one is pulling me in, i feel i should go watch it as its scifi and looks like pure action and adventure, plus Mark Strong is in it as what looks like a villain role and hes awesome, so i figured someone might be able to give me a better idea of what to expect before i commit

Yeah, I'm a big sci-fi movie fan, so usually this would be right up my alley, but the ad... I can't quite place my finger on it, but it just makes me think it's not going to be a good movie. It gives me the same feeling as clash of the titans, the new Conan movie, or the immortals. Hell, the visuals look like a cross between Conan and stargate. Doesn't mean it won't be a decent popcorn movie, of course.

I remember other Sci-fi movies that got terrible reviews that are now 'occult hits' so ill reserve full judgement until I actually see it, but that being said, this being a disney movie and from what ive seen on the previews in the trailers, Im not impressed enough to go see it in theatres, and im currently not being bothered to see movies by anyone else, so its win-win. Ill watch this when I can get my hands on it on DVD, until then, Ill reserve my judgement of this movie.
