I still don't understand why we have to talk about films in this completely brain-dead way in which box office money is the main or only consideration. It's so nihilistic.
Take Before Midnight, in June, which was amazing.
For people who don't care at all about artistic merit, it actually made money ($20M on a $3M budget, likely because it was a labor of love for Linklater, Delpy, and Hawke).
I haven't heard a single thing about that film on this board. Just how much money mediocre blockbusters made.
A movie is not about what it's about; it's about how it's about it.
