I just watched JOHN CARTER on Blu-ray and enjoyed it very much. The now ex-Disney people who handled 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.

That's the NEW Hollywood. Now when you see a trailer they don't show the names of any of the actors and with this new breed I have no idea who most of them are. Remember the day when the lead actor or the writer was shown full screen to draw immediate interest to the film. Now you watch the entire trailer not knowing who the heck is in the film and only the title shown at the end. No wonder John Carter failed with this type of thinking.
