John Carter and Project X

John CarterJohn Carter

I saw this opening weekend and it was great. I am a huge sci-fi fan, so this was right up my alley. I had not read the books before seeing the movie and was able to follow the story, which I liked, very easily. The CG in this movie was amazing, but that was to be expected when the movie cost $250 million to make.  I don’t understand how this movie didn’t do well at the box office. I recommend at least rent, if not buy. If you are a sci-fi fan then you will like this movie.


One minute, dozing Civil War veteran John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) is evading Apaches in a deserted cave. The next, he’s waking up on Mars, a once-Earthlike planet that’s devolved into chaos — and civil war of a different sort. Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’s classic “Barsoom Series,” this sci-fi adventure finds Carter coming to the aid of Martian princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins) and pitching in to help protect the planet.

Rating: 9 out of 10 stars.

Ok, this movie has a documentary type feel to it, like it was pieced to together from cameras and phones of the people that went to the party. Project X is basically the hangover for high school kids with language and vulgar jokes. College kids might get a kick out of this, if you can believe high school students are this stupid. This movie was good for a few laughs and holy shit moments, but the hangover was better. Rent, if interested, but not worth buying.


Deciding to throw a party when their parents go out of town, three high school geeks hope to lure chicks to their revelries by posting an invitation online. But the invite goes viral, and before long the party escalates into a frenzied free-for-all.

Rating: 7 out of 10 stars.
