But we both know that isn't true since you brought up the box office numbers.

Yeah, and? It wasn't a financial failure, a critical failure, or a failure on DVD. Hence, that statement. It wasn't a failure because some people didn't like it. It may have failed to do what you wanted, but amongst people en mass, it didn't fail. It did decently. That's what I mean by any capacity: financial, critical, DVD for people en mass ( as in a large group, a collective). Everyone doesn't have to like it for it to avoid the failure category.

What I said isn't a translation for anything except this:

Do not tell me what I think. I liked the move and I'm not kidding anyone.

You didn't like it and that's fine. But it does not mean that a movie that made 660 million, got mixed receives, is rated decently on some fan sites like imdb, and sold decently on DVD is a failure.
