Back from Barsoom

My wife and I just returned from seeing John Carter.  (My film-enthusiast youngest son has been urging me to go see it for weeks now, partly just to ensure that it loses less money.)

We both enjoyed the film quite a bit, actually.  I really don’t see why it’s doing so poorly at the box office.  I’ve seen many far worse movies that have turned handsome profits.

Oh well.  If you haven’t seen it and would like some action-packed adventure fare — set largely at southern Utah’s wonderful Lake Powell, by the way — you could do considerably worse than John Carter.
