Dredd 2012 I actually felt was a very good movie. To me better than the originally significantly.

It's on most people's (including mine) best of all time list but it didn't even break even at the box office. That's pretty wild.

Dredd was boring... it looked budget too. couldnt finish

Scott Pilgrim is classic... It will be a film of our generation. Its to many pop culture and video game references in there not to be

f!ght club is dope, i didnt know it was a flop tho....

I really wanna like Idiocracy, but it was trash... the humor was not there. Had alot of potential but horrible execution.

How the fu*k did f!ght Club only do 37 million in the US? Did they fu*k up the promotion that bad?

It did 100 mill world wide though...

And in those days, I'm sure they made a fu*k load of VHS/DVD sales.
