Critics' Corner: The Best, Worst and Most Overlooked Movies of 2012 (So Far)

Best Movie That Got Unfairly Hated in a Major Pile-On: John Carter

Now that everyone’s had a go at kicking this movie while it’s down, let’s look again. Yeah, it’s got some problems – now that I’ve had a while to calm down from that first wave of initial excitement, even I might not throw four stars at it – but it’s big solid fun, makes more sense than any Transformers film, has extremely cool-looking stuff popping out at you from all sides, feels like old-fashioned popcorn entertainment and has the best dog (okay, gigantic lizard-dog) since Uggie in The Artist. I’m not backing down on this. - DW
