Actually, as a fan of both the Edgar Rice Burroughs book, A Princess of Mars, and of Andrew Stanton, who directed WALL-E, I wasn’t really that surprised that John Carter would turn out to be an entertaining adventure. (And my fellow Forbes bloggers agree, here and here.) But in some ways, the movie exceeded my expectations. John Carter deserves to be seen by more people than it has. So I’d like to convince you to see John Carter, particularly while it’s still in theaters.
