I think some people believe that it's almost sacrilege to speak ill of TH and his movies. Don't mention the words flop or failure or poor performance!! God forbid.
Not that the comparison is the best but - Hello, Daniel Day-Lewis and the movie Nine. Hello, Robert DeNiro and Meet the Fockers. Great actors sometimes make bad choices. And sometimes they make crap movies that don't do well critically or at the box office.
CP and ISTL aren't going to make us forget THC, TA or his run in Coriolanus. So let's be honest about their quality.
And, hey, at least it's not The Pirate Fairy. That shizza was bad (confession: I haven't actually seen all of TPF, but listening to 2 minutes was enough.)!
