BTW, I'm screening my print now. So far it's not too bad. Because it's a Disney film it's definitely working the father-son-dysfunction angle. The kid playing his kid is like an 11-year-old version of the annoying kid who played little Anakin in "Phantom Menace" (picture that kid with an 11-year-old's annoying smart-ass attitude). Jackman is playing the "likeable rogueish asshole", and you know eventually he and the kid will bond, blah blah blah. Still, compared to a lot of the dreck I've seen lately, it's fairly entertaining and has some nice cinematography so far.
Cool...let me know how you think it might play for an 8 year old kid. Thanks.

Probably fine. It has the moral (everything has something good inside, it just needs to be brought out; we all get second chances to make good; etc.,.). It's got the "A Boy And His Dog-Robot" angle. The father-son dynamic. The unrequited-love angle (BTW, Evangeline Lily has tiny boobies but nice legs and a great minimal-makeup face). The movie's telegraphed from a mile away (everything is laid out simply and you pretty much know exactly what's going to happen and how), but that's okay. I don't think it's meant to be "Pulp Fiction" or "The Sixth Sense" in terms of storyline.

I would the whole thing, twice, and then again in the morning.

Movie's got about 40 minutes left. Incredibly silly and simplistic, and yet you can't help but smile and enjoy it even though you could've written the plot yourself on a bar napkin while half-drunk. I think one of the early reviews said it was "Rocky" with rivets, which applies. It's actually one of the few films I can remember seeing where the inability of the film to commit to one thing actually makes it better; most films, when they can't make up their minds, end up being lesser than if they'd gone more in one direction than another (e.g. "Super 8" as a horror film and a coming-of-age story). This one actually seems to work better because it's such a blend (Rocky, Boy And His Dog, redemption, "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots", special effects, heartwarming Disney-ish tale, etc.,.).

Final review... There actually wasn't enough fighting for my tastes. Could've used more. But what there was, was well done. The product placements got a little annoying, but that's just the way it is nowadays in films, unfortunately. The film won't blow you away, but it's actually an enjoyable silly simply-done film that both dads and their kids can take something away from. Has it's cute parts, sentimental parts. And it looks good in IMAX and sounds good (and loud). It's really not an FX-robot film, it's a family (and family-bonding) film with a shiny robot cover to it.

Uh oh.....Hollywood smells a bomb. Im actually looking forward to this, but the marketing has been awful.



http://www.deadline.com/2012/02/john...f-of-all-time/


‘John Carter’ Tracking Shockingly Soft: “Could Be Biggest Writeoff Of All Time”



Hollywood is in a tizzy over the early tracking which just came online this morning for Walt Disney Studios‘ John Carter opening March 9th. “Not good. 2 unaided, 53 aware, 27 definitely interested, 3 first choice,” a senior exec at a rival studio emails me. Another writes me, ”It just came out. Women of all ages have flat out rejected the film. The tracking for John Carter is shocking for a film that cost over $250 million. This could be the biggest writeoff of all time.” I’m hearing figures in the neighborhood of $100 million. And the studio isn’t even trying to spin reports of the 3D pic’s bloated budget any more.

Now, to be fair, this very soft tracking has been expected. The studios’ private reports have shown for some time very soft awareness and very little wannasee. So what’s Disney’s explanation? “It’s the last leftover from the previous regime of Dick Cook,” an executive who works for successor Rich Ross reminds me. “We’re not running away from the movie. Our job is to sell it.” Then again, Cook also left Ross Alice In Wonderland to sell, too, along with other hits and a few misses.

Disney is nervous, really nervous, but trying to hold out some hope. ”We know that we have a long way to go. It’s still four weeks out, and the bulk of the media hasn’t hit yet. Our Super Bowl ad did what we intended it to do: have a pop of awareness. On Sunday we launch a full campaign with 90+% of all of our media ready to go.” Problem is, John Carter (formerly titled John Carter Of Mars) only has a two-week window before Lionsgate’s hotly anticipated The Hunger Games opens March 23rd.

Disney is still planning a gigantic worldwide day-and-date push for John Carter with all the frills no matter how dismal its prospects look. ”After all the movie has Andrew Stanton of Finding Nemo and Wall-E,” an insider explains to me.

The marketing has been horrendous, and calling it "John Carter" instead of "John Carter of Mars" was a mistake from day 1. It's just a bland title.

John Carter ends up on Mars. People on Mars are in a stargate-esque battle for their freedom and lives. He's the "chosen one" or something, and is a total badass on Mars (superman effect?). He fights baddies. End of story (or at least that's what I gather from the trailer and what I've heard).

It's based on an old pulp fiction sci-fi novel (or is it comic book?) by same dude that did Tarzan.

They have done an absolutely wretched job explaining the concept and "selling" this movie. Odd considering its Disney, who usually markets very well.

It's based on a series of books by Edgar Rice Burroughs. They are Sci Fi classics, I've read them and they are great. If Disney handled this right then they could have a movie franchise that spanned decades.
