The transit of Venus was today (or yesterday, since I'm posting after midnight) and nearly apropos to that--my copy of John Carter (pre-ordered, thankyouverymuch) arrived! I sprung for the 4 disk version because I wanted the extras. I don't have a 3D TV or player and I don't plan on getting one.
I couldn't resist popping in the blu-ray right away--it's gorgeous. Speaking of extras, Entertainment Weekly has one of the deleted scenes posted. It's an alternate opening that some have said might have helped. I'm growing weary of the hand-wringing at this point. Yeah, it's a little sad that the film didn't do so hot and it's already out on DVD, but then hey, IT'S ALREADY OUT!!
- Buy, rent, or Netflix the hell out of the movie!
- Tell our friends!
And of course, take a fist full of ideas back to the game table.
