That's right. I asked additional question, that's all.
Will you next limit it to R rated sci-fi movies that are exactly 124 minutes long? What other arbitrary criteria can you throw in to make your point seem valid?
Not arbitrary, it's a fact that R rated movies limit the size of demographics by its rating nature compared to PG-13 or PG. The examples you mentioned should be subjected to rating since you only listed none R rated ones. If you included them, then I wouldn't have asked the additional question.
Unbelievably awful movies rake in huge amounts of money all the time.
Good movies rake in huge amounts of money too.
If box office success is suddenly a measure of quality, then I guess The Phantom Menace is a masterpiece after all.
Masterpiece is reflected in box office success too. Also, unbelievably awful movies are box office failure as well.
By the way, The Matrix Revolutions says hello.
Since I didn't get your answer for my previous question, let me ask you again, what 5 (+-) movies of last 10 years did you find not dumb or stupid and thus liked it?
Your question is so ignorant and insulting that I shouldn't even dignify it with a response.
It was only a curiosity question. Internet forums being what it is, such question is necessary to figure out who is what and as I suspected, it can be seen as an insult from the other side of the computer screen but that's not what I meant. Never the less, you answered anyway.
The Hunger Games
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
The last three or four Harry Potters
The Star Trek reboot
The Dark Knight (though not Dark Knight Rises so much)
The Bourne Ultimatum (the previous two as well, but they go back more than 5 years)
Hmm..., all PG-13 except for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (PG). I did enjoy The Hunger Games and Bourne series for suspense. MI3 was enjoyable for actions and HP were all good for what they are meant to be. Any thoughts on No Country for Old Men, District 9, Toy Story 3, Frost/Nixon, LOTR: The Return of The King?
While none of these may be intellectual masterpieces, nor are they insultingly stupid.
If intellectual aspect of movie is what you are after, R rated movies should be tried more.
Prometheus is insultingly stupid.
You are entitled to your own opinion and all I did was to put numbers, whose opinion is in the largest pool, whose is in the small fringe. For some reason, that didn't go down easy for some people.
If an intellectual aspect was all I was looking for, I wouldn't ever go to see big-budget blockbusters in the first place.
Intellectual aspect isn't the only thing the movies have. There are things with such but we don't call that movie.
You'd think that wouldn't be much to ask for, but apparently it is.
Ask to whom, director, producer, screen writer or others?
Citing box office numbers as a measure of quality is a fool's game.
Fool's game? Tell that to the (movie) investors. You do realize this is movie business, don't you?
When I said numbers, it's the review rating. Those who disliked Prometheus as much as you did are in the minority. Lets not forget, minorities are always around. Will the Hollywood care about the minority for their decision making process? I don't think so.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen grossed over $800 million. Do you know a single person who would admit to liking it?
Wonder if Netflix will have the full version for rent on BD, or if it will be one of those damnable "rental" disks with nearly everything stripped out except the movie itself?
There's a good chance BB will have the original dvd and BD...some stores have to buy them from best buy so I'm crossing my fingers my BD copy which should arrive on tue will have the whole shabang incl the dir cut.
