I've never heard of Colin Ferrell or seen any of his films. There's this guy Colin Farrell who is much better known and coincidentally he has also starred in a film called Alexander.

I thought Hopper was fun to watch in Fishtar (Waterworld). That and Ishtar were the only ones on this list I'd seen. I wish I could erase all of Ishtar from my mind - at least the part I saw before giving up on it.

Hopper saw what it was and decided to run with it. Either that or he was just being himself and it was a bit of cinema verite.

It wasn’t great but in my opinion it’s not really as bad as most people say it is. In fact, out of all the movies on this list that I’ve seen, Solo and Ghostbusters are probably the two I liked the most. Though that’s not really saying much.

I thought it was pretty bad, but I agree it is leaps and bounds better than everything else on this list that I've seen (which is probably about half of it).

I'm surprised to see it did so poorly financially -- it got decent reviews and a lot of press. Personally, I thought it was a fun watch. Too bad a bunch of angry internet trolls had to ruin it.

it didn't do that bad. Albeit not nearly as well as its predecessor. Not all of these were financial failures. Justice League underperformed versus the Avengers, but still made a ton of money. It was god awful, though.
