Where are you going?
To your temple.
No! No, you cannot enter here! It is forbidden! You are not Thark!
[Dejah and John enter so she follows]
Dotar Sojat, it is forbidden. It is forbidden!
Well, you speak for the goddess. What does she say?
[Seeing the engraving on the temple's wall]
You called me a thern. Is that what she is?
No! She is Issus. Therns are holy messengers of the goddess. In the time of oceans they walked among us, guiding us. We must not offend. Let us go!

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!!!!.
