My wife and I got to see John Carter (of Mars) earlier this evening.
She wasn't really familiar with the storyline, but I ravenously read and reread the series when I was 10 or so. Gotta say we both enjoyed the movie quite a bit. There were points in the movie I found myself grinning, not from something funny, but because I was really enjoying the move. If your a fan of the books at all I highly recommend you checking this out. I don't think you'll be disappointed!
