In this mad, mad, mad world of ours where reality TV stars get to play president and we’re on our eighth FAST AND FURIOUS movie, it’s not uncommon for great movies to go unseen. For instance some of last year's best reviewed movies, like THE NICE GUYS and KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS, failed to recoup much at the box office. There are so many great films that were viewed by an empty auditorium, and we here at JoBlo honor them with our newest top 10 list. We pay homage to the financial duds that stole our hearts, like SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, DONNIE DARKO and even THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION. This is our gift to you, fine films…even though we know you’d prefer the cash.

What about The WIzard of Oz?

$2.7 million budget, $3.1 million gross, after the studio got their cut they suffered one of the biggest losses ever up to that point, over $1 million, and during the middle of the great depression no less. You could also add Vertigo (Box Office Mojo curiously has the wrong figures for this film, MGM itselt pegs the budget at $2.5M and the gross at $2.8M), the Gene Wilder Willy Wonka, Tron, or a little movie called Citizen Kane.

So many of these top 10 lists seem to ignore anything that

So many of these top 10 lists seem to ignore anything that wasn't released before the 80's, to be fair JoBlo seems to at least do a better job than some other sites, but still so many older movies that could've made the list and seem more notable than some of the ones that wound up on it. I was very happy to see you included It's a Wonderful Life, though. Also, if you're skewing newer I was surprised to not see Office Space or The Big Lebowski.

Not making much of a profit is a disappointment, not a bomb. A bomb doesn't even get its budget back.
