Excuse me Can't Post

I see a lot of threads celebrating Hobbit box office gross saying that it proves how great of a movie it was. I can't understand logic behind it. It says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about movie quality. 800, 900, billion? How does passing every of this numbers make a movie a little better in someones eyes is beyond me. Why is it for a lot of people, quality measured by income of the product?

Would you say those products are great just because of the money they made:

Transformers: The Dark of the Moon - 1,1 billion
Star Wars: Episode One - 1 billion
Spider Man 3 - 890 million
Transformers: Who Cares - 836 million
Backstreet Boys - 130 million albums sold
Rihanna - 100 million albums sold
Britney Spears - 100 million albums sold
Kardashian show - millions of viewers
....

The unkind truth is that there are A LOT of stupid people out there. Shallow, boring, witless, stupid people. You could sell them their own garbage back for dollar ninety nine. Hobbit was great because it was art made by the artists. Book and movie.
