Got and watched this one last night. Never bothered to see it in the theater due to poor word of mouth and what was arguably one of the worst promotional campaigns for a major motion picture in recent memory.
Surprisingly, it *is* a bit better than I expected but still far from great or even memorable in a quirky sort of way like say, David Lynch's "Dune" was. The wrap-around story that concerns Carter and "Ned" was actually the most rewarding part of the movie, the end kind of took me back to the ending of George Pal's "The Time Machine." One thing kind of bugged me about the soundtrack score - there's a 6 note "heroic" theme that sounds almost identical to that used previously in X-Men 3... maybe I'm just dreaming.
I breezed through the deleted scenes - most feature unfinished or missing effects, some to the point static line drawings of characters are used for placement of future (unfinished) CGI characters which is kind of funny to watch at times.
The Blu-ray presentation is pretty typical for this sort of giant budget green screen effects-laden flick. The indoor photography mostly seemed to be unusually dark and murky to the point there was some black crush in places. Sound was good, although the low freq sub sounded a bit muddy - not anywhere as tight as say, the "War Of The Worlds" or "Cloverfield" audio reference BRs. Vocals are pretty upfront and distinctive, something many big action movie BR releases seem to have a problem with these days.
Recommended for a single viewing for the whole family but little replay value... imo.
