En 2012, Le cinéaste oscarisé Andrew Stanton signe avec JOHN CARTER un grand film d'aventures qui se déroule sur la planète Barsoom (Mars), peuplée de tribus guerrières avec des créatures plus extraordinaire les unes que les autres.

Tiré du premier livre du « Cycle de Mars » d'Edgar Rice Burroughs l'inventeur de Tarzan, qui va vous raconter et vous plonger dans le fascinant voyage de John Carter, inexplicablement transporté sur Barsoom, au caeur d'une guerre mystérieuse entre les habitants de la planète.

Parmi tous les êtres étranges qui peuplent cet univers, il fera la connaissance de Tars Tarkas et de la captivante princesse Dejah Thoris.Dans ce monde imaginé par Edgar Rice Burroughs, qui sur le point de disparaître, Carter va découvrir que la survie de Barsoom et de son peuple est entre ses mains... L'adaptation à l'écran a bénéficié d'un budget de deux cent cinquante millions de dollars avec les studios Walt Disney.

C'est un roman d'aventures passionnant que vous adorerez, je suis sûr si comme moi découvert un peu par accident le film au cinéma, ou sur une chaine de télévision tard une nuit.

Not bad, but with one MAJOR flaw... 2 mars 2012
Par J. C. Bloom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Okay, so I've been waiting for this movie for forty-five years. The casting is fantastic, and, from the numerous trailers, the special effects seem exceptional. So all I was worried about was the script. Unable to delay my gratification, I got this novelization and read it.

Although numerous "small" changes and a few major ones have been made, it is STILL essentially the Princess of Mars storyline. Sure, they used some sci-fi jargon (e.g., nanotechnology) to explain things Burroughs left mysterious, and they moved the Thern Matai Shang from a later book...but still, so far so good. The spirit of ERB's masterpiece was still intact.

HOWEVER (and this is no small thing): Early in the story, John Carter confronts the villian Sab Than. It is then stated that although John Carter has has SOME experience with a sword, Sab Than is far his superior. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! The MAJOR aspect of John Carter--repeated OVER and OVER in the books--it that he is the "greatest swordsman on two worlds"! I mean, this guy could hold his sword between his knees and still best anyone else without working up a sweat! It's not his leaping ability or strength (which any of us would have if we were displaced to Burroughs's Barsoom); it is his superhuman swordsmanship that makes this character special. To ignore or change this is like depicting a Tarzan who can't leap from tree to tree or kill lions, or having a Superman who cannot fly. It is TOTALLY contradictory to and a betrayal of the character!

*sigh* Ah well, I'm sure I'll still enjoy the movie, but can anyone rationally explain why such a critical change would be made to the character? By the way, the novelization is a fun, fast read, not challenging, but also not stupidly oversimplified either...therefore much like Burroughs's original work.

I love Barsoom 27 juin 2012
Par Ivan D. Alexander - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Having read "John Carter" novels in my mid teens, I was smitten with Edgar Rice Burroughs stories of Barsoom and the Princess of Mars. And now nearly fifty years later, I am still smitten. Where the books then had left me a sketch vision of adventures on that world, Mars, the film "John Carter" filled in the details. It was beautiful then, and it is beautiful now, beautifully done. A very rewarding super adventure story on Barsoom and the beautiful sexy Princess of Mars, her hero John Carter, and the strange Tars Tarkas; all so much appreciated by this Earthling of Jassoom. I think this is a great film, short changed only by incompetent promotional presentation. It's almost as if Disney wanted it to fail, like "The Producers". Disney management really dropped the ball on this one. It could have been a great success. This is a fun, very worthwhile film to see, and beautiful scenery. Well done!

Trying For It All 3 mars 2012
Par Grognard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This script novelization shows that director Andrew Stanton is trying to achieve it all - a market superhit while being remarkably true to the spirit of Burroughs' original. The only thing lacking is Burroughs' emphasis on John Carter being a "gentleman of Virginia", with all that entailed in the early 1900's. Omission of the latter is pretty clearly due to the severe time constraints of the movie medium. He also has a fascinating take on the romance story, and an emotionally effective ending, which I won't disclose given that the movie's opening is a week away. Then we'll see how well the movie works as a movie.

I also recommend the comic book prequel, John Carter: World Of Mars, for a better understanding of this script novelization and the movie, particularly in figuring out which Martian is which ("Who is Dork Doofus, again?").

John Carter of Mars, Movie Novelization Review: 14 mars 2012
Par Petram - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When I was eight years old I was still unable to read. My small town third grade teacher spent a lot of time helping me overcome what now would be considered a learning disability. The very first full length book I read was, "A Princess of Mars" by Edgar Rice Burroughs. That was over 30 years ago.

That being said, I must admit to being sadly disappointed in the movie novelization version of Burroughs original work.

In the original work John Carter was:
- The best swordsman of two worlds.
- Possessed of an extraordinary fighting spirit.
- A gentleman of Virginia.
- Could not recall ever having been a child or remember anything regarding his childhood.
- Did not age as other men did, knowing only that he had always appeared to be of about 30 years of age.
- Was fearful of death as only those who have not met it can be, yet facing the possibility as "a fighting man".

Regrettably, these aspects of John Carter seemed to be lacking in the movie novelization.

The chemistry between John Carter and Dejah Thoris, which felt palatable in the original work, were sorrowfully deficient in the movie novelization. Imagine encountering one who posses the same spirit, moral balance, self sacrificing essence that you hold, and is as beautiful and intelligent as you could imagine. If you can picture that through my poor description then you have started to brush the surface of their feelings toward one another.

If one has not read the original work then the movie novelization is a decent book. Characters and plot are thought out, details are honed, story line flows from one chapter to the next. If one has read the original work then I would suggest passing on the movie novelization. You may appreciate the differences, but you will be disappointed by them.

Save the money you would have spent on purchasing the movie novelization and go see the movie itself, enjoy it for what it is. A fun science fiction adventure to the red planet of Barsoom. One filled with intrigue, epic battles, mysterious creatures, and, of course, romance. Buy your better half some popcorn, or gummy bears, they will appreciate the gesture more than you will appreciate adding the movie novelization to your collection.

As such things go I have never forgotten that first read, much like one never forgets their first time at many things. That feeling of awkwardness, of being unsure of oneself, of not understanding the full nature of things. I don't berate myself for having read the movie novelization. I do ask myself why I didn't see the movie first, other than the small, almost insignificant, detail that it hadn't yet been released.

Anyway, remember what I said about the gummy bears. Don't trust me on this, believe it to be true :-)

John Carter, then and now, 3.5 stars 18 avril 2012
Par Ruth Anderson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Although unfamiliar with Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter adventures, I thoroughly enjoyed the recent film -- so much so that I wanted to seek out the source material on which it was based. Many, if not all, of Burroughs' Carter novels are in the public domain (and as such are available as free or bargain-priced e-books), but I opted to purchase this novelization of the film for two reasons. One, I am a sucker for a decent script novelization, particularly if it expands on the movie's action to some degree (the novelizations of the original Star Wars films are extremely effective in this respect), and two, this novelization is packaged with A Princess of Mars, the original and first novel to feature John Carter's adventures on Mars, and the story on which the film is principally based.

The movie novelization is written by Stuart Moore, and as written realization of the film it falls a bit short. Let me put it this way -- if I'd read the novelization first there's a good chance I would've opted not to see John Carter on the big screen, and that would've been a crying shame. Moore's novelization is a decent adaptation of the script, but it fails to flesh out the fascinating world the film introduced me to. I wanted more of Carter's backstory, more insight into the development of his romance with Dejah Thoris, more insight into his efforts to adapt to the brave new and dangerous world he finds himself unexpectedly thrust into when he encounters the Thern being in the Arizona cave. Moore's prose is relatively flat, and given the imaginative canvas Burroughs created that's a shame. But having seen the film first, the novelization does a decent job translating the storyline from screen to the page -- I would simply encourage anyone who picks it up to not stop there when investigating the written origins of Carter's Mars adventures.

Reading A Princess of Mars was a first for me -- I have no experience reading early 20th-century classic pulp fiction, so stylistically I had no idea what to expect. I was of course familiar with Burroughs as the creator of Tarzan, and that character principally through its silver screen adaptations from the 1930s and 40s. First published in 1912 in serial form, Princess is told wholly from John Carter's point-of-view. This means there is a lot -- and I mean A LOT -- of information "dumping," exacerbated by the fact that all of the action is related as Carter's reminiscences, and for a good part of his time on Mars he's observing and learning, concealing the fact that he's learning the Martian language. This narrative style made the first third or so of Princess a bit of a slow go -- but with the images from the film firmly ingrained in my imagination, I was nonetheless eager to learn Carter's origin story as originally envisioned by his creator.

Roughly halfway through Burroughs' first Barsoom (Mars) novel, the action begins to pick up the pace, and what the movie novelization lacked in developing the Carter/Dejah relationship, Burroughs made up for in this novel. While the original Dejah isn't quite the warrior (at least not yet) that we see in the movie, her nobility and sacrificing spirit translated from Burroughs' text to the screen relatively intact. And I'm a complete sucker for an old-fashioned romance, and Carter's character has an inherent nobility that I just adored. Princess is an old-fashioned adventure novel that becomes an increasing page-turner the more Burroughs lets us see Carter adapt to his new environment, gradually opening himself up to friendships and relationships with people whose appearance and customs are so different from his own at first blush. Surprisingly, since it seems so out of my reading norm, I'm more interested than I ever expected in investigating Burroughs' subsequent John Carter novels. Happily the film (though not the novelization exactly) is a decent and fairly faithful adaptation of its ground-breaking source material -- I'm happy to have finally discovered this classic from the pen of a pulp fiction master.
