Nabb1: "Titanic" got a ton of bad buzz before it came out, too. Just saying.
karmachameleon: Still going to wait for actual reviews and, of course, my own viewing. Production issues and bad press can result in movies like Waterworld and Ishtar. They can also result in movies like Jaws and Star Wars. You just can't tell until you see the damn thing for yourself.
Mentat: The moment Damon Lindelof is called in to fix the script, it's doomed.
ShawnDoc: doglover: Better than any Transformers flick.Stepping barefoot on warm dog shiat is better than any Transformers movie.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: More like World War Zzzz, am I right!?
ShawnDoc: Mentat: The moment Damon Lindelof is called in to fix the script, it's doomed.I'm curious, how did he got from writing a few TV episodes to being given so many high profile scripts?Cowboys vs Aliens - Big budget flop, that should have been good.Prometheus - I don't think this flopped at the box office, but almost all the hate is directed at the script and how dumb the characters were.And yet somehow he gets:Star Trek Into Darkness (Huge budget/hype movie)World War Z (Which looks like its going to be a huge flop)Tomorrowland (Which is going to be a high budget Disney film starring Clooney)
doglover: ShawnDoc: doglover: John Carter was a good movie, given the press.No, no it wasn't. It was a long drawn out movie about a guy who can jump far and had an alien dog for a pet.I went into the movie wanting to like it, and thinking the critics just had a bug up their ass. I was wrong, they were right.Better than any Transformers flick.

Notabunny: fta It would just be nice to see a little more understanding among the media and Wall Street analysts, to recognize that just because a film has problems during the process of production, that doesn't mean it's doomed.In the future, you may also want to consider the opinions of your potential audience.
