Hello again dear listeners and readers. Today will consist of numbers 10 to 6. I hope you enjoy!
*Footnote: Again, here are a few key words that helped me narrow my focus on why certain movies were chosen: Risk, originality, genuine, geeky, beauty, closure, intensity.
10 – John Carter – Obviously in the minority, I found John Carter to be captivating, entertaining and visually stunning. It’s a shame that Disney really mucked-up the marketing surrounding the movie. Not many people know that John Carter is based off of a book, A Princess of Mars, which is an integral story, written back in the early 1900s, that influenced the modern-day genres of sci-fi and fantasy. Plus, it inspired MANY of today’s best writers and directors, not to mention movies like the Star Wars saga. Had the marketing focused on that, I think people’s perspectives might have changed.
