Forgettable Film =/= Bad Film or Not Entertaining.
It's okay, I like plenty of films with star casts that everyone else has forgotten about. Just none of the ones anyone's mentioned so far. And I like even more star-studded titles that no one here has ever even heard of.

Like this one, JAPAN'S LONGEST DAY (1967). It's got Toshiro Mifune, Takashi Shimura and just about everyone who ever starred in a Kurosawa or Godzilla film:

Maybe because the fashion industry is vapid garbage.

My new year’s wish for DVDTalk is that people learn the meaning of star-studded.

One of those 1970s movies where the main selling point was the cast, so they put everybody's face on the poster.

Size.
