Excellent Movies That Bomb?
#1
Dost thou know of any good movies that somehow didn't do well at the box office?

I thought Final Fantasy: Spirits Within was pretty good (even though my sister complained that the lips were slightly out of sync with the dialog), with an interesting premise.

I also liked The Island, it combined two cliched SF themes to get something I didn't expect.

I rather liked Kingdom of Heaven.

I guess the real question of this thread is really:
What movies did you really, really like that bombed at the box office?


And what does this say about us?

What are we defining as "a bomb"? It seems to me that most of these movies have made back their initial investment.

There's plenty of good movies that bomb. One of the biggest bombs in recent (and all time) history was K-19 The Widowmaker. It was an outstanding film that just fell through the cracks for one reason or another.

It's got to do with the economy, the other movies that are released around it, the 'national mood', if there is such a thing, at the time of release, and a million other little factors.
