    • To be honest most of these films have shocking reviews. Gigli was actually promoted by one network as being so bad you know you’ll want to see it. When you read the plot it’s bewildering how it ever got the green light.

    • Hugo and John Wick were said to be quite good. It isn’t always the case that because a film does badly with gate receipts that it’s poor. John Wick wasn’t helped by it’s title.

      • Good question. It was well received by critics and well represented at the Oscars. I think it was such a unique movie and some people didn’t know what to make of it. Also opening up against Twilight: Breaking Dawn 1 and The Muppets didn’t help.

  1. 9/12 didn’t get Alamo which is funny because I’ve seen most of it 🙂 Didn’t get Sahara ( I guessed Fool’s Gold which is also funny because I’ve seen Sahara but not Foot’s Gold) and I guessed 7 Ronin but its actually 47 Ronin. I was surprised to see that Hugo was a flop, it did alright with Oscar nominations and how much did it actually cost? Fascinating. Thanks as always for a great post.

  2. Hugo – a flop? That’s big news to me. I hated Hugo, but I thought I was the only one, and even wanted to do an unpopular opinion post about it, lol. The only one I feel sad about is 47 Ronin (2013). I know it is based on a Japanese legend (based on historical facts), which is quite fascinating, and there is Keanu Reeves in there. Surely, there could have done something better considering the importance of the story.
