    Do you think any of these movies should have made more, or do you think they deserve what they got?

    I thought the postman was a pretty good movie. It was long, but if you could sit through it was pretty good. But I can see why it flopped.

    I personally like the 13th warrior. It was probably too strange for most people though.

    no Waterworld?

    It's amazing how much crap gets made in Hollywood, a lot of the big wigs still think that big names, big budgets & special effects mean big income....I think that people are getting a bit more sophisticated nowadays, bored of action over substance.

    Alexander is my pick. Oliver Stone probably made a mistake by going for an artistic interpretation of Alexender's life instead of a realistic one, but oh well what ever. I really enjoyed that film.

    This doesn't factor in DVD and VHS sales, does it?

    Wild Wild West was still a piece of sh*t though. A movie needs to make at least double it's budget to make a profit. Wild Wild West BOMBED!
