Thrilling and utterly fascinating. When was the last time you entered a movie theatre and became engrossed in every aspect of the featured film, even if it didn’t execute entirely well on all cylinders. John Carter lies in its rich visuals and production design, solid performances, a compelling storyline and terrific musical score.

Yet another Disney delivered on – even if genera... read more

"Did I not tell you he could jump!"

We've seen millions of films set in outer-space, and many of them have become classics over the years. John Carter is based off the 1917 novel, A Princess of Mars, and is considered by many fans to have been the inspiration for sci-fi epics including Star Wars and Star Trek. While this is probably true, the film adaptation has been made years afte... read more

"When I saw you, I believed it was a sign... that something new can come into this world."

2012's John Carter was a long time coming. Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' story A Princess of Mars which was first published in 1912, official development for a John Carter motion picture has started and stopped since 1931. But apparently eight decades was not enough time to do the project jus... read more

WatchMojo's Top 10 Movies That Went Over Budget (10 movies items)

"Budget: $250 million Don’t let its glossy look and CGI fool you: this Disney movie was a bomb. Director Andrew Stanton had a glowing reputation going into the production, with films like “WALL-E” and “Finding Nemo” on his resume. The story itself is based on a popular Edgar Rice Burroughs novel. So what went wrong? Some said it was boring, others said it was an “Avatar” rip-off, but mostly, no one saw it. “John Carter” is still in the top five of the most expensive films ever "

Total Film's 30 Franchise-Killing Movies (30 movies items)

"The Franchise-Killing Movie: Before it got its mitts on Star Wars, Disney went for space opera gold by adapting the sci-fi epic that inspired George Lucas (among others) in the first place. Pumping a whopping $250m into the film, Disney seemed confident. But then the reviews came in - not hugely damning, but not exactly effusive. Despite taking $282m at the box office, it wasn't enough to cover the extra costs accrued during the marketing process. It's a shame, the film is much better than its"

DuckNation posted a review 5 months, 4 weeks ago

“John Carter is actually not that bad of a film when you think about it sure it may have not lived up to the hype but that was because we had already seen pretty everything the movie had to offer also the fact that they placed the movie between "The Lorax" and "The Hunger Games" which was a completely stupid idea still though i had an enjoyable time watching the movie and wouldnt mind a sequel but that will never happen at least not for a really really long time. I thought the cast all did solid performances Taylor Kitsch wasn't so annoying in this movie as he has been in others, Lynn Collins was so freaking gorgeous with all her outfits and those damn blue eyes so gorgeous, i totally forgot that

Bryan Cranston was in this and i thought he did a good for how little he was in it,” read more

My Top 150 Favorite Sci-Fi Movies... Of Like, Ever (150 movies items)

" The big screen adaptation of the Warlord Of Mars is a film I avoided watching in theaters because the overall word on the street and the internet was that John Carter is a average movie at best. After finally neflixing it, I've got to say that, as a sci-fi cinema nerd, this is probably the best "average" movie I ever saw."

Movie Reviews (551-600) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It is an old-fashioned story that still works and has universal appeal - and it was written by one of the authors that lay the brick-stones of the science fiction genre. The cast is solid if unspectacular and the effects for the most part good. It is good family entertainment. The Downs: The fact that it was in development for almost eighty years made it inevitable that people with no knowledge of the source material would compare it to other films (especially "Avatar" and "Star War"
