A Couple of Movies

I am looking forward to this movie. While it's called John Carter it appears to be the first book of the series: A Princess of Mars.



I think Edgar Rice Burroughs' vision of Barsoom (Mars), while it is scientifically non-sense, was far better than his better known Tarzan.

Elfquest a movie?

I also note that Richard and Wendy Pini's Elfquest is supposed to be in the process of becoming a movie but it has been on the back burner for years. That is really too bad. Apparently it is moving forward but some people want it so bad that they made their own trailer. This is unofficial and attractive and done to encourage the producers to hurry up. Warning: This seems to concentrate only on the female elves (There were roughly equal numbers of male and female elves in the actual story) and suggests things that were not in the books/comics.

On "Mars", I wonder if you notice a couple of things:

1) Barsoom (Mars) is red, but not in the movie trailers. This is a major landscape detail, and one that should have been easy. What is so hard to understand?

2) The green Martians in the books are quite muscular. But in the movie trailers, they are skinny bugs. I can imagine that Disney, looking to save some money, recycled the wireframes from "A Bugs Life" for Tars Tarkas and his race in the new movie.

Bugs!
