    Crowdpleasers? The only successful at the box office of your entire List is HOUSE OF GUCCI so I suppose HOUSE OF GUCCI is the only crowdpleaser

    Crowdpleaser meaning box office hits? Because the best crowdpleaser is West Side Story. Everybody who sees it loves it! Not enough people have seen it but most of the people who would want to are waiting for it to come onto streaming so they can watch it at home.

    That’s literally not the definition of a crowdpleaser. Also No Time to Die, Spiderman and Don’t Look Up have all been more successful than Gucci. Sometimes the people on this site baffle me.

    What are you basing this on? Because DLU didn’t have a theatrical release. And if it did, we know for sure it wouldn’t have come even close to HOG numbers, or even West Side Story.

    Obviously there’s a lot of controversy about it online and the fact you can watch it “for free” on Netflix, encouraged many people like myself to give it a try to see how bad it is. Trust me, I wouldn’t ve not paid a single penny to go see it in theatres, if that were the release format. And judging from the RT scores (both critics and audiences), it’s not hard to imagine why many wouldn’t pay to go see it.

    Just like the pundits said King Richard was going to be a hit at the B.O, among many other predictions for these so-called crowdpleasers.

    When even a remake of a 10-Oscar winning legendary musical by one of the greatest directors of all time could not even surpass HoG. That says something about the state of the box office.

    Theorizing that DLU would’ve been a B.O hit is the best joke I’ve heard this year so far. It’s already sliding down the Netflix (currently #3 in the U.S, when Red Notice for example remained #1 for weeks). So its curiosity-driven debut which was probably fueled by many of the detractors choosing to watch it out of curiosity for free is not indicative of a potential B.O success. Going to the movies usually requires a lot more passion than mere curiosity.

    I mean that is common with every single netflix movie?💀

     

    And also why should we believe you and not him? At least he’s a box office expert, who tf are you? Don’t be jealous just because your precious movies are flopping.

    Because you’re comparing apples to oranges. Netflix success is unlikely to translate to B.O success. Red Notice broke Netflix all-time record but had 1.25-1.5M (opening week with 750 locations).

    As I said earlier, it takes more passion to physically travel and pay to go see a movie in theatre when you can watch it for free as part of your subscription from the comfort of your home. There are many movies that people are willing to watch for free but not invested enough for a more costly threatrical experience for it. You just can’t equate the 2 experiences.

    Doesn’t matter if it would of been a hit in theatres or not. It was a hit on netflix and has a 7.3 on IMBD and a 77% on RT audience. Most of the general public liked this movie.

    So are you suggesting that squad game, bird box, the queen gambit or extraction aren’t hit shows or movies?? It’s true that people don’t go to theaters for a netflix movie because netflix is literally available everywhere, but  that doesn’t mean people watch everything that is available on netflix and If that was the case then the power of the dog would have been a biggest hit,,, or remember last year malcolm and marie, ma rainey…. or  even this year andrew garfield’s tick tick… boom? the fact that it didn’t crack even top 90 on netflix says a lot.

    I was just saying it’s laughable to say it did better than Gucci that’s all, when the latter grossed 125M$ to date. If Red Notice which did much better on Netflix, had quite middlling box office numbers in its theatrical release, there’s no reason to assume that DLU would’ve been a hit either. I’m not even sure it would’ve surpassed King Richard.

    That’s the weirdest ranking to make but sure.

    1. House of Gucci
    2. CODA
    3. King Richard
    4. Spider-man: No Way Home
    5. Respect
    6. Don’t Look Up
    7. Being the Ricardos
    8. Belfast
    9. The Eyes of Tammy Faye
    Not seen: No Time to Die

    So basically I love the first one and hate all the others.
    Also are Respect and Tammy Faye crowdpleasers? Shouldn’t something like Dune or Shang-Chi (or my wish, Eternals) be there? That’s a too elastic concept to tackle or take seriously, specially after most predicted crowdpleasers failed this year.
