So my husband and I went to see John Carter last night in IMAX 3D. Loved the film, OMG! It was like a mix of science fiction, fantasy, and steampunk with some really funny moments thrown in.
But I have to admit there was something that tripped me out a little. Not enough to pull me out of the film or anything, but enough to make me sit up and go "Wait...seriously?"
It's no secret I have a wee bit of a thing for James Purefoy. And his presence in the film was part of why I wanted to see John Carter in the first place (that and it sounded like a wickedly awesome story coupled with some amazing visual effects). So I was looking forward to some Purefoy on the big screen.
As a general rule, though, I don't read a lot about films before I see them. I'll watch a trailer, and that's it. No reviews, no comments about them, no background, etc, because invariably, someone ruins it for me if I do. So I had no idea that there would come a moment when I would think, "Holy shit, deja vu!"
Because when I saw this:
I immediately thought this:
Trippy? Just a bit.
But I love Ciaran Hinds and James Purefoy, especially together, and I loved Purefoy's character in this movie. I loved the whole movie.
GO SEE IT AT ONCE.
