John Carter


        
    John Carter is the best Star Wars movie since Return of the Jedi. Of course it’s not literally a Star Wars movie, but I dislike the term “Science Fantasy” and so Star Wars will have to satisfy my eccentricities in this matter. John Carter is based on the book “Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first in his Barsoom novels. It concerns the former confederate soldier, the titular John Carter, and his adventures on Mars called Barsoom in the Martian tongue, or should I say Barsoomian?
