When I saw this movie I was certain immediately that it was a good film that was going to flop and that was largely because they had blundered on the title. I believe my comment at the time was "What the hell does 'John Carter' even mean?" It's ok to title a film where the main character is the driving force, but this film is about war and love and foreign lands. I don't know how the people who put together such a fine film could make such huge blunders in other respects.

I’m a liberal. I believe that the free market is the best way to allocate scarce resources…. except when it isn’t. chrisland1966@gmail.com
