Blu-ray Review: "John Carter"

It's unfortunate a movie as good as "John Carter" couldn't get a break at the box office. The film was poorly promoted and just couldn't find an audience in the U.S. It's the sort of movie people will take a chance on at home and regret not seeing on the big-screen. Now, home viewers can see what could have been the first of a great new franchise which will never happen now.

It's a shame more people didn't give this movie a chance in theaters. I think many are going to watch this at home and wish they would have seen it on the big-screen. It's a visually dazzling film with a lot of heart and soul. Unfortunately, younger viewers are going to watch it and think it's a rip-off of the very movies it birthed. It needs to be seen as a history lesson to moviegoers on the real inspiration behind "Star Wars" and "Avatar." A good amount of special features and an excellent high definition transfer make the "John Carter" 2-Disc Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack a worthy purchase for consumers.
