After spending decades in the works, John Carter has finally made it to the big screen this weekend. Sadly tracking has been a bit low and it looks like it will be a box office flop. It’s rather unfortunate since it is a solid film despite minor pacing issues and spotty dialogue at times. The visuals, the story and the acting can make up for whatever flaws the film has. Plus, there’s Lynn Collins in it! That should be a definite plus! (And c’mon, support your fellow Canadian Taylor “Riggins” Kitsch of FNL fame).
