Book 4, 37 Girl Talk

John Carter, Warlord of Mars, etc, etc.

Here is the "epic fight scene." Nice work, actually. I just question the need to give John Carter Civil War-PTSD. And to make him a dirt-poor homesteader. And the decision to make this stinker of a movie in the first place. I do think Lynn Collins and Taylor Kitsch put in a credible performance, especially given that they were apparently locked in a concentration camp for the duration. (A concentration camp with a great gym, but I'm not sure that makes it any better.)

Unfortunately, the poor box office means that we're probably not going to see Battleship II.
