  1. To be fair, I wouldn’t have funded Star Wars either. As movies go, its
    success is inexplicable to anyone outside the fandom. It’s a good movie,
    but is it as good as the success it’s had would imply it is? Not by a long
    shot. It’s clearly not a bad movie, as its done incredibly well, but
    looking at it from an investor standpoint, it was a massive gamble. It
    wasn’t particularly original, it wasn’t particularly innovative, but it
    clearly just nailed something.

  2. Peter Jackson had trouble selling the idea of three Lord of the Rings
    movies until New Line Cinema picked it up (most places wanted just one
    movie when PJ was pitch a two movie idea, then was offered the three movie
    deal).

  3. At the time, it wasn’t a bad idea for blockbuster not to buy Netflix as it
    was a DVD by mail service that wasn’t worth it for blockbuster

  4. Just before internet shopping exploded. Sears abandoned their mail order
    services to focus on their stores.

  5. Where did the deal of NOKIA with Microsoft go in this Top Ten List!
    In my opinion it was one of the most DISASTROUS deals of 21st Century!
    What do you guys think?

  6. If another company bought some of these they wouldn’t have ended up the
    same way, and could have sucked and tanked.
