Tim Riggins is John Carter...

So yes, this movie got mixed reviews and pretty much bombed at the box office...but to be fair, it was poorly marketed and I for one am really excited to watch it!

Some key ingredients that should make the film worthwhile: 

1. Tim Riggins! My favourite Friday Night Lights character in a movie of his very own :-)

2. Beautiful the scenery, yep

3. Touches of humour and overall sense of fun

The sun is shining, summer's around the corner, so why not grab an icy drink and enjoy?


  1. You'll have to tell me what you think of this. I'm curious, because when I saw the trailer in the theatre I thought:

    1. What a terrible title for an action-adventure flick.
    2. What a terrible actor (sorry)
    3. Looks exactly like every other OMG BATTLE SCENES! movie...aka: BORING.

    But the trailer I saw was completely different from this one. It's funny how trailers can a) completely mislead you on what a film is like and b) create a specific, direct and dumbed-down version that the marketing types think will appeal.
    This doesn't seem like an official trailer. Has the music been dubbed?
    I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts.

  2. According to YouTube, this is an official trailer. I heard that the movie suffered from a terrible advertising/marketing (non)campaign so maybe the trailer you saw was part of that.

    Taylor Kitsch was quite good on Friday Night Lights...I don't think he was given much to work with here, but I wouldn't say he's a bad actor.

    The movie is based on a series of science fiction novels so I'm hoping the story won't be too boring.

    I haven't watched it yet, I'll let you know what I think when I finally do ;-)
