If you don't care about the box office, why post in a thread that's all about...the box office?

There's plenty of room in this forum to talk about other things (and, indeed, most of the forum is devoted to other things).
What thread would be the right one to state that I don't care about box office then, if not a thread about box office? Point me to it, please. Or shall I randomly state it in random threads?

Shawshank Redemption isn't "real" Star Trek.
But it's the best film ever made. And I have the IMDb Top 250 to support my opinion.
It's phenomenal, no question. But that and $28M will get your sci-fi, action-adventure franchise mothballed for a decade or so at least.
But it would give me one phenomenal film instead of 10 mediocre ones, wouldn't it? Are you sad that Shawshank Redemption didn't get a sequel, or a prequel, or a reboot?
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
