Princess of Mars: Asylum's John Carter movie

No comments about the other John Carter of Mars movie? I remember the aliens looking more like I expected them to look in it.

The comment is that I didn't know about it! :)

aka "Princess of the Asylum"

The synopsis also sounds a bit closer to the novel than I expected, with many departures. I haven't seen it.

How about making a dedicated thread to this "other" movie?

Done. This is now a separate thread from the discussion about the Walt Disney John Carter movie.

I know The Asylum often makes low budget films with titles similar to that of big block busters, presumably to capitalize off the buzz from those bigger movies. However I had never heard of this one.

Is it worth checking out for fans of the John Carter universe?

Except that I'm pretty sure this one came out BEFORE Disney's John Carter, and maybe before JC was even announced, so they weren't really copying anything at that point.

My gut call is "no" but it's been a while since I've seen the film. The actor who played John Carter did a decent enough job, in my opinion. Tracy Lords doesn't seem anything like Dejah Thoris to me. :o I kind of like the flyers better than Disney's, however. Flyers should look more like boats and not feathery things.
