I didn't see a single commercial or advertisement for this movie. If it lost money, the studio is to blame

We tried to watch it on Saturday; spent 90 minutes trying to watch it and the plot was so stupid and all over the place I couldn't figure out what the point of the film was. We gave up, it's nonsensical and boring.

It looks awful. I couldn't even make it thru the trailer.

It was a DOA.

I’ve already discussed this in other threads but I enjoy having the discussion.

To me, movies like Amsterdam and Babylon are very outdated. They are these contrived Oscar bait all-star cast movies that would have only worked in the early 2000’s.

They’re like Carlos Santana’s “Supernatural” album. Clive Davis said let’s take all the Grammy award winning producers and songwriters for the album and make formulated can’t go wrong songs for the radio market.

That’s what Amsterdam is to me.

It shouldn’t deter studios from making original movies, it should deter movies from making Hollywood bullshit.

Granted, “Knives Out” was Hollywood bullshit but I don’t think lighting struck twice on that one with the sequel.

Anything that looks like something George Clooney would love and direct is bound to be a total bomb.

This thread was made before Babylon came out. That is the biggest bomb of last year and recent history.

I'd like to make a prestige film that takes place during the Harlem Renaissance.

Margot Robbie is just dropping bomb after bomb. Her career is in freefall.

So if Babylon is a huge bomb, and Amsterdam was a huge bomb, is Margot Robbie "in danger gurl? "

I watched it a few weeks ago. Didn’t like it, but it wasn’t the worst I’ve seen. DeNiro did a good job and it was nice to see him actually act again. Bale was also good. John David Washington was just there. He wasn’t charismatic, charming, or especially likeable. He didn’t have much chemistry with Bale or Margot Robbie. I didn’t buy them as three inseparable best friends.

Chris Rock was actually the best part of the movie to me.

I think her Barbie movie will be a hit. When’s that come out? Women will go see that one.

Christian Bale just did not age well--he looks so strange now, and he was so handsome when younger. All those yo-yo weight gains and losses did a number on his face (and probably his metabolism to boot).

Robbie got critical praise for her performance in "Babylon," and I agree "Barbie" will likely be successful, so I don't think her career is in free-fall at all.

But she needs to stop only playing whacked-out women for a while--she's played Harley Quinn sorts of roles too many times.

Still a whole lot better than Babylon!

To me Chris Rock gets increasingly better as a dramatic actor. He has really honed his craft.
