Informal Poll: Which of these titles would most make you want to see the movie?
- A Princess of Mars
- John Carter of Mars
- John Carter and the Princess of Mars
- John Carter
As a follow-up, if you identify as male, is the word “Princess” scaring you off? If you identify as female, is the word “Mars” scaring you off?
Finally, is the previous set of questions some of the most ridiculous crap you’ve ever heard?
(In case you are wondering what I’m talking about, see here)
As for my own
bias opinion, I would watch the hell out of any of the first three, but especially John Carter and the Princess of Mars. I have very little desire to watch a movie called John Carter.
Movies of Earth
These are the terrible movies you went to see in theaters:
Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon
Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
All of the Twilight movies
These are the awesome movies you probably didn’t see in theaters:
The Iron Giant
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
It’s more profitable to make terrible films that you’ll go see in the theater than to take any risks and try to make a good movie with a single original thought and a competent filmmaker with storytelling chops beyond casting famous people and dropping in some fart jokes.
Now go see John Carter [OF MARS] while you still have a chance, like someone who wants to see more awesome movies and fewer that make you doubt the intrinsic worth of your own species.
