I just watched JOHN CARTER on Blu-ray and enjoyed it very much. The now ex-Disney people who handled the...er..should I say who mishandled the release and advertisements for this film deserved to be fired. Mistake #1 was to take Mars out of the title and mistake #2 was not placing Edgar Rice Burroughs' in front of the title. The movie was epic in scope and the tale was not preposterous like a lot of the other so-called epics that have been floating around lately. Special effects were very good and believable. Taylor Kitsch was very good as were the other leads, especially Lynn Collins. I just hate it so much when a good movie tanks and some of those other pieces of drek make millions.
