  • Alex

    Ugh, why did you nominate Murder on the Orient Express for that? It’s a good,inoffensive movie.

  • RogerBW

    Think about the opportunity cost – the things that could have been done with the budget, with the cast, with the crew, that could have made for something better than an “inoffensive” film that approximately nobody will remember by next Christmas.

  • Sorry, dude! We’ll be sure to check with you next time about the objective quality of films.

  • Willy Billy

    And yet it’s made $348M (so far) on a $55M budget.

  • So what? You think that’s a measure of quality? The film has a Cinemascore of B, which means most ordinary moviegoers on opening weekend (the ones most excited to see it, that is) felt only kinda meh about it. Which suggests, as RogerBW says, that it will be quickly forgotten.
