Tank

Apparently, the movie "Valkyrie" may be tanking before the first ticket is sold. The audience reaction in the previews has been rather bad.
“The film just isn’t a thriller at all” said one “Valkyrie” viewer. “It’s a bunch of white guys in Nazi uniforms. It’s too bad. And Tom [Cruise] doesn’t speak with a German accent — though they did add a voiceover of him speaking German to the beginning of the film. Still, it’s as if he could say ‘I complete you’ at any time. This is not his Oscar moment.”
I don't know if "too bad" means "it is regrettable that Cruise made such a clunker" or if it means "this movie is worse than bad." What I do know is I'm not going to buy a ticket to find out for myself.

I'll go with option C -- BOTH.

Cruise has become increasingly unhinged on the last two years; I know a lot of people won't see his movies just because he's a flippin' whackaloon.

Well, who the hell ELSE would be wearing Nazi uniforms?. But of all the actors to hire...
