My Dad first gave me his yellow-paged copies of Edgar Rice Burroughs John Carter of Mars series when I was in junior high. He’d read them when he was my age and now passed them on to me. I remember the joy of losing myself in the adventures of A Princess of Mars during a slow week of standardized testing.

Now as the movie prepares to launch on March 9 next month my main regret is that given that we now live in different states he and I won’t get to see it together. I’ll have to wait and just call him after we’ve both seen it so I can pick his brain about which details they got right and which plot changes he liked and disliked.

Judging by these two clips via Hollywood.com we’ll have a lot to talk about:
