When I first saw John Carter Of Mars advertised, I knew it was going to be a movie that would have the kind of impact that the Lord Of The Rings Movies did.
Due to it only having had a short run in the theatres here, I didn’t get to see it until it came out on Blu-Ray.
I am a 59 year old father of three grown up children and I have seen countless movies in my lifetime.
I would definitely rate John Carter Of Mars in the top 5 movies I have seen, of all time. To me it is an outstanding movie that has everything that would be appealing, to all age groups over 15.
I find it very difficult to understand why it got such a bad rating by the critics when it was released. But then again, half of these so called movie critics wouldn’t know a good movie, even if it jumped up and bit them on the bum.
I was never a huge fan of the Star Wars movies, but I did enjoy them. When the new one was released, I thought it might be worth going to the movies to see it. I did so and when I walked out at the end, I only felt disappointment and I was left with the impression that they only made it to cash in on the franchise. After reading some of the reviews and ratings for that one, it just confirmed how I feel about movie critics.
John Carter Of Mars definitely deserves at least 2 or 3 sequels because it is such an incredible adventure and there is so much more of the story still to tell. If they have the same great cast, use the same director and are marketed the right way, they could easily be a runaway success.
