Much is being made this morning of the romance film Dear John
as the #1 film at the box office. I'm not sure this is newsworthy stuff, though. Did anyone really expect Avatar
to remain #1 for another eight weeks? Eventually, some movie was bound to come in at #1; the fact that it was this one hardly portends a world where the future of cinema rests with Channing Tatum and an army of pre-teen girls.
