This is going to be a interesting post for me...a movie review!
I know, but a blogger friend got me in touch with the Disney people and I had the oh-so-awesome opportunity to go to the press release screening of the new Disney movie John Carter!

Not exactly Jane Austen material here, peeps.

I'm a crazy big Star Wars fan (shocker, right?) and this movie could be the 7th Star Wars...witty characters, great story line, and lots of action.

And let's be honest, does Disney really ever do anything awful??? Not likely.
Also not awful to look at is the character of John Carter (Taylor Kitch, of X-men Origins and Friday Night Lights fame) is pretty darn cute:

And if you want to take kiddos to see this movie, Geek Dad had a *spot on* review of the movie!
In short, as long as they are a little older (like 8 and up), they are going to *LOVE* the movie.
So if you want something fun to do tonight, you can go hit up the movies with a crowd pleaser...
And now you can't say that I didn't ever give you any useful information on this blog! (c:
