I have to admit that I’m getting a little nervous about Walter. Debuted earlier this year at various film festivals, his Rotten Tomato score has been pretty much rock solid at 30% and not budging. This, despite, the movie having my second favorite trailer of the year (see Top 5 Trailers of 2013) and looking amazing. Today the third trailer and a new poster (possibly the the 25th for the film) are out and I am hoping to see an uptick in those number soon. I’ve disagreed with the critics a lot this year, but it’s not often that I hold up a 30% movie like a newly-born Kunta Kinte and scream its praises…..I may need more coffee.
