Cinemablend.com: 6 Reasons Disney Needs To Resurrect The John Carter Franchise!

http://www.cinemablend.com/new/6-Reasons-Disney-Needs-Resurrect-John-Carter-Franchise-43550.html Excellent article which lists the reasons why Disney should ressurect the John Carter franchise! 1) Andrew Stanton and Taylor Kitsch want to make the sequels!

Tim Burton's Batman is one quarter of a century old this monday, June the 23rd!

We sometimes forget how much of a desert was the superhero movie genre in the 80ies. Superman has been tremendously succesful already thanks to the 1978 and 1980 movies. But in spite of them, since Superman 2, you could begin to see parodic elements due to the direction of Richard Lester. The fall was hard with Superman 3 and 4, without even mentioning Supergirl. The few seriousness that was featured, thanks to Richard Donner and his writer Tom Mankiewitz, had already left the genre as soon as it was introduced....

John Carter: the French ALLOCINE doesn't like, the viewers love it!

2014, June the 3rd : the French website Allociné give its advices of movies to see on TV. The three not to be missed are: Lethal Weapon 2, Promised Land and Zarafa. The movie NOT to see is John Carter, with this moronic critic:  “Adapted from Edgar Rice Burroughs by WALL-E’s dad, the movie had everything to be 2012’s Avatar. At least on paper, because on screen the feature film (which hurt VERY BADLY Disney’s accounts) offers a run-of-the-mill visual universe, an uninteresting scenario and a completely bland hero. Too bad…”... [Lire la suite]

Soldier Edgar Rice Burroughs, you're in the army now

When Burroughs writes his Indian tales, all doesn’t come 100% from his imagination and researches. He indeed was in the American cavalry… for ten months!  Burroughs always dreamt of a military career, which was synonymous for him with adventure and romanticism. Shortly after graduating from the Michigan Military Academy, he fails the entrance exam at West Point. Whatever, it wouldn’t prevent him from living his dream, and if possible, in the “worst” post of the United Taste. What did he ask for! In his mind, “the worst” was... [Lire la suite]
