Taylor Kitsch as John Carter in Disney's JOHN CARTERWhat's left to say about one of the biggest bombs in box office history? Plenty, when that bomb is Disney's 2012 sci-fi action epic "John Carter."

This week's pick comes courtesy of special guest Drew Taylor, who comes armed with plenty of facts and factoids to support his love for the adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's literary classic. For better or worse, the CAN'T WAIT! crew discusses the merits of "John Carter," from its impressive visuals to its jam-packed plotting. Other topics of discussion include questionable casting choices, lovable toad dogs, and the very minor role real science plays in the movie.

Tune in next week for Phil's pick, 1999's "Deep Blue Sea," a movie in which hyper-intelligent sharks attack a scrappy team of researchers (and LL Cool J), all in the name of Alzheimer's research.
