Paul Dergarabedian says he too wants "good films that are female-centric and aren't just romantic fluff.... But life is not fair." Moreover, audiences should support "the types of films that they hope to see more of in the future." [Hollywood.com]

my question.. is how do you judge a movie? or what makes a successful movie? what makes a good film? or how do you measure success?

Titanic is the HIGHEST GROSSING FILM OF ALL TIME, but ranks in at a 7 on IMDB.. is that success?

Whip-It is a higher 7, does its rank make is more successful?

Twilight, highly regarded as a success, only ranks a 5.8 but grossed in almost 200 million.

Fight Club, rated a high 8, only grossed 37 million...

what is a 'good film'

i think that hollywood plays it 'safe' when it comes to movies... and success== money, does not mean good film

ANYWHO.. i'd love to see more risk taken with movies, instead of remakes, and rehashng old storys
