Topic: DISCUSSION/SUGGESTIONS for WORST ACTOR

MBH: Firstly, why are you calling me "Lady"? The disrespect toward women on this board is quite noticeable.

Secondly, I was not trying to convince you of anything regarding Pattinson's movies. I was merely providing ACTUAL box office figures and FACTS, right from Box Office Mojo. And based on actual box office totals and budgets, they were profitable. And they were DRAMAS, which is a genre of movie that does not do blockbuster numbers. Even Johnny Depp's recent drama The Rum Diary only made 13 million domestically while it had a much higher budget of 45 million.

Breaking Dawn has already made 634 million worldwide in only 24 days and is expected to make around 700 million which would be better than Eclipse and the same as New Moon. It's already made 260 million domestically in 24 days, not 228 million. 


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I went in and "edited" the original posting by mbh to which MR is responding above, "cleaning up" some of the language which I, too, considered disrespectful -- For purposes of clarity, the "original" version is reproduced below...

Lady, I know you are a spokesperson for RPatts, but don't try to
convince me that his movies are box office hits. When Remember Me came
out, he was on his peak of fame, it was expected to be his chance of
showing to the world that he can open a movie. Instead, it made only 19
Mio $ in America and was critically panned, and got him a Razzie
nomination for worst actor. Nobody apart from his fans calls that a
success.

I have commented before that I liked Water for Elephants and don't see
the need for a nomination. But the movie did only decent numbers, and
that with the help of two Oscar winners in leading roles, while his
acting still hasn't convinced the critics.

Lastly, Breaking Dawn is trailing New Moon by eight Mio Dollars, and
even more with Eclipse. Internationally we will have to wait and see,
but Summit is expecting to make 228 Mio, that means they expect it to
end up at 650 Mio.

I haven't written RPatts off, but in Breaking Dawn he delivered only one
line and one scene that I liked. That is 100% more of what I liked
about Adam Sandler and 0,1% of what I like when I watch a Geoffrey Rush.

He deserves a spot up there if you like it or not.
