Crop And Save
Meteor Apocalypse (2010)
Contrived with Religious message.
A movie where you can leave your Brain out of it. Just watch for the message. A government that doesn't warn anyone of the impending disaster. The featured player is a worker at water plant (scientist?) Some people are dead. The government 'qurantines' others and moves them en mass around the country. The Hero abandons his vehicle to walk home. He finds his family being herded in vehicles. When he confronts Bio-Hazard suited men they hold him back. Usually a person being argumentative is beaten or at least forced to join the herd. Of course the movie Road show would end there(?)... With all the adrenalin that should be present he wanders off and falls asleep. Waking he searches for what... finds a dead man in a SUV and a woman sick nearby. Now we have our sickly fem who goes with him on the search. Arriving in Las Vegas he finds his buddies Government office/lab. By Golly no security of any kind. Everybody has been evacuated Except one lab tech still working while the place is overrun with looters. During a search of a trash bin he finds a water bottle, wow. He is soon set upon by looters and a FBI team show up to save them. Begins the next leg of the road trip... More marauders take out the FBI and leave our Hero and fem to walk again. Side story is the Government mishandling elsewhere. Dialoge is unbelievable, responses to situations are contrived. There is so much more to lead to the "Miracle" ending. Funny that a Poster saying as much was conveniently over the shoulder of the Hero at the start of the picture. This is another movie you can confidently avoid. Although people who need to be inspired may enjoy it.
Princess of Mars (2009)
An interesting adaptation of the story. I found All the actors seemed to fit well in their roles. I felt that I was short changed by there no being "Red" tinged body paint on the humanoid actors of Barsolom. Although I could understand the budget causing the loss of the extra arms. Plot line seemed well done in that the story/script didn't go foolish as some other movies have lately. I do feel that a couple of the deleted scenes would have made the story flow better. All in all I would look forward to more of the books stories being produced. The explanation of how John Carter traveled to Mars was typical modern Sci-Fi drivel. The original drifting off to sleep in the ERB authored stories seems to me more 'mystical' logical. Otherwise the adaptations are acceptable.
