The Last Movie(s) You Watched... (quick one or two sentence reviews)
John Carter (2012)
I found myself liking this movie a lot more this time around. I'll admit that I watched it with an editing eye looking to see what I might do with it. There's really not much that I have to complain about the film itself. I think the big issue with this movie was that it just threw you into the story without any information. They either needed to spend more time with John Carter during the war and the events that lead to him going off on his own or spent more time on Barsoom/Mars at the beginning and then brought him into the story. I wish they also would have gone more into the Thern. Their characters are very intriguing and I would have liked to know more about them. A surface level scratch that attempted an epic scale but didn't have enough roots to keep us grounded in the story. 6.579/10

Michael Giacchino's score 7.5/10
Giacchino is the heart and soul of this movie. His main theme, while not one of most memorable, nails that old-timey epic feeling. This could have been a theme in an old Cecil B. DeMille. Giacchino again crafts atmosphere that lifts a flawed presentation to an enjoyable experience. Disney would be wise to re-employ him in future Star Wars ventures. He gets source material and how to bring it into the present. With Williams bowing out and James Horner gone, Giacchino might be our only hope.

*edit*
Watching the deleted opening scene......WHY didn't they open the movie like this?!?!? *face palm*
