Who the heck is John Carter???

This is going to be a interesting post for me...a movie review!

What the...?!?!?

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!


I did *NOT* have high hopes for this movie because all I knew what that it was Sci-Fi about some guy who goes to fight in a war on Mars. 

Not exactly Jane Austen material here, peeps.

But hey, it was a free movie and I got to look cute and take out the hubby (c:

I thought you guys might like to see how much I'm enjoying my Jason Wu for Target shirt (c:

It was pretty awesome to get to sit in the "reserved" press seats, too...I couldn't stop giggling about the fact that I was being called "press" (c: 

The long and short of it is: GO!!!!

The guy that wrote the books for John Carter, Edgar Rice Burroughs, is the same guy that wrote the books that inspired Star Wars and Tarzan. Dude has some writing *SKILLZ* (and yes, that is with a "z"). 

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.

Not to mention some pretty darn impressive 3D effects. *Seriously cool*

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:

As is the Martian princess love interest (in case you need to convince your man to go (c:) 


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:

Cute duds!

Being a sci-fi geek I will likely see this C: And heck, he's super cute The review I read today said that it was muddled but the lead character took his shirt off for most of the time.

Aubrey, you are so cute! I wish I could get my hair to curl like that. Do you just use a curling iron?

First, you look amazing! Second, there's nothing like scoring tickets to screenings. Third, you convinced me to maybe think about watching this movie ;)

We'll definitely be seeing it, as my husband LOVES movies like that. But what I really wanted to comment on was how insanely awesome you look! Love the whole look, and your hair is freaking perfection!

What's funny is I saw the trailers for this movie and was pretty sure I didn't want to see it. A couple of weeks later I realised I have been reading the books by Burrough for the last month and love them. Am now going to see it in a couple of days - hopefully it is as good as the books :)
