Did anyone else actually enjoy John Carter?(r/movies)

There’s a whole book written on the subject of the bad John Carter marketing… a totally fascinating read for anyone with an interest in Hollwood, marketing, fan efforts and more.

I read the book without having seen the movie, and then of course I just had to see it. But I was so disappointed I turned it off after around 20 minutes. Just my personal opinion, but it looked like a clichee-laden pulp tv show for boys (including characters, story, costumes, and even effects, albeit it was such an expensive movie), without anything that would tickle my interest. And I love spectacular & ‘dumb’ action movies, so it’s not that.
