John Carter and the Princess of MarsMany people aren't looking forward to John Carter, the adaptation of the 100 year old story, A Princess of Mars, that's been in development since the 30's. Either they don't know anything about the Barsoom saga which inspired Star Wars and Avatar, or are turned off by the way it's presented. Or maybe they do know and still accuse it of being a rip-off of the movies that "ripped off" the story, and others like Conan the Barbarian or Prince of Persia. I hadn't heard of the story until 2006 or 8 when I saw news on Pixar's development of the film, but due to a large female audience rejecting the film, it could be a huge flop.John Carter and the Princess of Mars2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm thinking positive of the film, as not only is it the first ever successfully made film of the John Carter character (The Asylum's film doesn't count), it's written by Pixar veteran Mark Andrews and both written and directed by Andrew Stanton, director of the two best Pixar films ever made, WALL-E also being possibly the second best animated film I have e
Sherlock Holmes A Game of ShadowsWhere can I begin with this movie? I'd have to say so much better than the first. Very little Adler in this one, which I kind of liked. Not that I hate the character, I've never been a huge fan of Rachel McAdams. The fighting scenes were absolutely top notch from the first one. You think these particular scenes from the first made you move to the end of your seat, this one probably would have made you fall out of it...Not that I can say this from experience...The interaction between Holmes and Watson was simply well done, and much more entertaining. Of course, I know there's one particular scene that is definitely going to cause bigger excitement to the Holmes/Watson supporters. The special effects were brilliant as always. Love how a few times I jumped because it was completely unexpected. Dialogue, just as phenomenal as it was in the first. Of course, we can't forget the amazing actors and actresses. Each and every one made an excellent performance and truly was in tuneSherlock Holmes A Game of Shadows2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash
from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving
“collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.”
Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gaming and entertainment websites.
Looks like this long-bubbling cauldron of traditional ways and means, modern tech, web economics, core beliefs
and future shock has finally boiled over...
