    I quite liked John Carter more than you did. I ended up reading all the John Carter of Mars books Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote. I found it to be a wonderful, old fashioned, story-driven film, not unlike Thief of Baghdad or Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. The film makers obviously read the entire series. I have been in mourning the loss of sequels due to the film’s failure to garner enough dollars to justify more movies. When Disney purchased Star Wars from Lucasfilms, the final nail in the coffin was driven in. John Carter of Mars has a richer and more diverse range of concepts than the Star Wars universe has offered. While I enjoyed the accomplishment the trilogy achieved, I have always been disappointed that Return of the Jedi featured the construction of another Death Star. It’s as though Lucas ran out of ideas and chose to repeat the past.

    The John Carter of Mars books have a shockingly fresh vision of things both achieved in the future by science and things yet discovered.

    Andrew Stanton assembled a wonderful cast and made a wonderful realization of the world Edgar Rice Burroughs envisioned. I loved the movie and wish that I had the chance to see Burroughs vision played out to the max. It would have been a wonderful ride!
