War's a shameful thing.
Not when a noble cause is taken by those who can make a difference. You made a difference today, Virginia.
Okay. See, my name is John Carter. Virginia is where I'm from.
Where did you learn to jump that way?
I don't know. How'd you learn to fly?
Your ships cannot sail on light in Virginia?

John Carter did not get the attention that it needed! This movie should of been more successful and despite what most of the critics and viewers are saying about this movie, "that its a lot like Star Wars and Avatar", that is not true. I have found John Carter to be an amazing movie visually, and the story was actually great. Don't get me wrong, Star Wars and Avatar were great movies, but I believe that John Carter was far much different and slightly better. I saw John Carter in the theaters the week that it came out and I had a lot of fun watching this movie!. So the hell with the critics, in my opinion, John Carter kicked ass!!!!.
