It is if you want sequels.
More to the point, it's the only quantifiable measure of success. When one debates claims about "quality" it's just a matter of bashing one's subjective notions and prejudices against someone else's, and getting into pissing contests over that kind of thing with people who are biased against a movie is just a waste of one's breath and an unnecessary test of one's patience. Let them masturbate on their own.

Not to mention that it's convenient not to "talk about box office" when the numbers don't favor one's own opinion.

As for what "we should be addressing" - unless you've got a mouse in your pocket, the first person singular is more appropriate.
