That's how I use this list once in a while, if I want a movie to watch with my wife. For that reason I value the list, but the chance of me favoriting a movie on it is very small.mjf314 on Oct 12 2015, 03:39:30 AM wrote:Based on these stats, the films on the box office list are not very popular among iCM users (compared to the films on other lists), which makes me wonder, why do so many iCM users favorite the list?
Do you ever watch non-English-language films with your wife? There are mainstream ones that she would like, but they don't often show up on the box office list.
I can accept "mainstream" selections but it's insulting to say that...the Crocodile Dundee dualogy is good mainstream or worse, "have fun with" just because it garnered a lot of cash from deluded masses, flocking aimlessly at theatres to offer part of their salaries to private big-bucks. If mainstream fun is the primary reason to keep this list official, it's a lousy reason objectively speaking.
