That's probably true. But 100% of the market pays attention to the price tag.

I don't know if I would call Tomb Raider a successful movie...definitely on top of the video-game-to-movie heap, but a good movie? Nah.

And FF couldn't have been too successful of a movie in Japan, it is one of the major factors that put Square into the serious financial straits that instigated the merger with Enix.

Here's the embarassing thing: I paid money to see that stinker in the theater. I was watching it going "***???" Mario jumps because of robot boots? Luigi is in love with Peach? Yikes, but it was bad...

BOMBED at the theater.. turned out to be one of the best movies ..
Oh my, you did not just say that Resident Evil was a good movie...*shudder*

You're right about one thing though, I probably used the wrong word originally. I wasn't talking about box office success as much as I was talking about just being a "good" movie. Lots of box office smashes are really bad movies (Big Momma's House, anyone?)

I don't know why you think Pulp Fiction bombed, though. It was very successful at the box office, so much so that Tarantino became the household name that he is today.

I just don't recall it that way. I waited until it hit the dollar theater (way before the home video release) to see it, and it seemed that I was the last person on earth to see it. In fact, I'm pretty sure there was a huge buzz about it at the movie festivals (like Sundance, or something) because Quenton was already on the critics' collective radar because of Reservoire Dogs.

Well, clearly you have different tastes than me. I've seen both RE movies....frickin awful. Really. Can't get much worse. But they obviously appeal to enough people to keep making them, RE3 is filming now and RE4 is already in the planning stages. And Sony keeps releasing RE on every format they invent (one of the early UMDs, slated to be an early Blu-Ray, etc.)

If you're into zombie movies, I recommend Shaun of the Dead. It's pretty darn funny without really making fun of the zombie movies genre, as long as you like dry British humor anyway.

just watched Shain of the dead this weekend ROFLAMO, at one point we had to pause the movie because we were all laughing so hard we were crying. but I could see someone saying its a totally lame movie if they dont get in to the brit thing.

Lol @ Shaun of the Dead but anyways I think Sony has really gotten themselves into a hole here, what were they thinking when they decided to design a console that costs over $900 to manufacture? If I were them I would first off try as hard as I could to take the CPU and GPU of the PS3 down to 65nm processes to cut costs as much as I could, then I would decide that my company is headed towards financial trouble and sell the PS3 for $1000, I know its very steep but personally I would rather only sell a few at a profit then tons of them at a huge loss, then after a year or so when the production costs come down out of the stratosphere I would worry about getting the price down to about $300 or so, honestly though they should have ditched Cell and Blu Ray, maybe for PS4 but right now they are just too darn expensive and are in their technological infancy. Perhaps they should do what MS is doing, release PS3 with a regular DVD9 player in it and then when Blu Ray players are faster and cheaper, they could release the drive as an add in where you take out the DVD9 drive and stick in the BD-ROM player, obviously they'd have to make it simple to do as I would hate to have to provide tech support to all of the millions of non-tech-savvy people who decided to crack open they PS3s to replace the drive and ended up frying it Also, I believe Sony DID ditch the 3 ethernet ports, they originally had it so the PS3 acted as a router sorta but they ditched that which was a move in the right direction IMO, personally I'll be buying the PS3 as well as an Xbox 360 as soon as the new 65nm X360s hit, and probably a Revolution just for good measure
