We dig into Joshua's Movie Madhouse archives (back when it was known as Anarchy at the Movies) for Disney's underwhelming adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel that inspired countless sci-fi adventure films, John Carter, starring Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins.
Full House “The House Meets the Mouse (Part II)”
“How do I know this will be an amazing episode? Because dude, they don’t even need to explain what happened in Part I! No ‘Previously On’, no nothing. Why? Because they assume—and rightly so—that Part I’s awesomeness has by now simply integrated itself into your DNA and become a part of your basic humanity. That Part I was so intense, you already intuitively know what it was about, even if you can’t consciously remember much of anything (I think Michelle was kidnapped by ninjas?). That’s how awesome this episode will be.”Jack the Giant Slayer / Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
“For whatever reason, Alice in Wonderland was a massive hit, so massive that ever since then making darker, action fantasy versions classic fairy tales have been in high demand in the industry. In the last two weeks, two such films have come out, so we’re going to take a look at them both.”Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013)
“Because every screenwriter knows that if you can’t give your protagonist a personality, you can always give him a destiny.”The problem with Big Hero 6...
“It was a bit frustrating to see a supporting cast of instantly lovable and visually dynamic characters end up as little more than set dressing.”Why we want Batman to beat Superman
“There’s something almost fetishistic about the way people would love to see the Dark Knight take the Man of Steel down a peg or two.”Argo (2012)
“Had the film been helmed by a more seasoned director, or even a relative unknown, it never would have taken home the big prize. Because ultimately, the most interesting thing about Argo is that Ben Affleck directed it.”
