EnviroDude: There was so much potential for the lil' old grandmother and her lines. It could have been epic.
jimzdat: I guess as long as you view it as a "action-comedy" and not a serious flick, you may not be too disappointed.
sidcart42: It's Sunday morning.Time for the people who willfully ignore the current climate of International/DVD/Blu-Ray/Netflix/Television/Amazon/iTunes/Basic Budget Analysis to gleefully declare something a failure.Good validating, Subby. You're tougher than Arnold!
Lost Thought 00: Arnold really should try his hand at another genre. Maybe dramatic period pieces.
Confabulat: Whether or not it turns a profit, I'd think the perception in Hollywood would be that this movie is a failure. I'm sure Arnie will bounce back with Kindergarten Cop 2 or something soon enough though

You're tougher than Arnold!Facepalm. The budget is between 30-45 million according to wikipedia, which seems like it would be easy to recoup. But that doesn't take into account the marketing costs, which sometimes doubles the budget. So, let's say 80 million. This film will be 10th place this weekend. IN ITS OPENING WEEKEND. I am guessing that it will not make 10 million this weekend, it will probably make 8 million or less. The second weekend, you can expect between a 40-60% decline in revenue, and the same for the next 4 weeks after that. 8 + (8x0.4) + (8x0.4x0.4) + (8x0.4x0.4x0.4) + (8x0.4x0.4x0.4x0.4) + (8x0.4x0.4x0.4x0.4x0.4) = 8 + 3.2 + 1.28 + 0.512 + 0.2048 + 0.08192 = about 13.3 million, in its entire theatrical run. Let's say my math is off by 50%, that is still only about 20 million. Do you think that the rental / purchase market is going to recoup 60 million dollars?Oh SH*T! Math strikes again!
Subdue their bellies: I dont want to see Sherriff Arnold. I want to see enemies crushed and/or fleeing, and hear some farking lamentation. Do you know what I am saying?
chuggernaught: From what I understand it's written as kind of a spoof of Ahnahld's age.
WhippingBoy: I watched "Commando" again a few weeks ago. I remembered it being a great movie./It's a steaming pile of turd
WhippingBoy: Lost Thought 00: Arnold really should try his hand at another genre. Maybe dramatic period pieces.He should redo Hamlet a la Last Action Hero."To be, or not to be""NOT TO BE!"
chuggernaught: We ended up seeing This is 40. About 20 minutes too long, but had some great one liners, extremely uncomfotable funny moments, and a nice little story all in all. Plus I appreciated Leslie Mann showing her breasticles.
doczoidberg: I actually want to see The Last Stand, but since my girlfriend is a farking biatch, I didn't get to last night.
