I don't know why...maybe the time it was released or the other movies people were waiting for to be released but I thought the movie was a work of art. It was done very well and the story was like no other so I just wish that it had done better because it deserved it.

The media didn't want to give it a chance. Basically the guy at Disney said yes to the total bomb of Mars Needs Moms, so the media was ready to target his next project.....and this is where John Carter slid in.

It's hard to like a movie when almost all of the media was hating it before they even saw it.

I loved it though, thought it was great, and I'll be buying it on Blu-ray. Even the user reviews everywhere are positive until the negative "get rid of the John Carter fanboys" step in and rate it super low.

Yes, I'll be buying too.
