Remove Star Wars and MCU movies and you're left with a pretty dismal opening weekend box office for any other sci-fi movie.

To argue the others movies some how deserved to get nuked into the ground opening weekend is disingenuous.

you might be right with some of them but several clearly have all the makings of successful opening weekend movies. Mega star power (Life, Ghost in the Shell), great reviews (Life), and/or guaranteed blockbuster properties (Transformers).

I don't think you can blame your opinion they were shit movies. In fact I found a couple of them pretty entertaining. Enough to wish I'd seen them on the big screen so I could see the spectacle.
