[Other] Being higher in domestic and 'international sans China' gross doesn't make one movie superior to other

It is just mostly about the type of content the Chinese prefer. We are all well aware that they flock towards big budget action movies with lots of CGI, but just because a movie has tons of CGI and is successful in China, it doesnt necessarily make it good. I dont think many of us look at how a movie is performing in China to decide whether or not we want to see it. I actually somewhat did get influenced by China with Aquaman, but I still haven't watched it, I just can't say I trust the Chinese box office in any critical sense.

That said, a big budget film's success in China is almost a necessity now, so downplaying numbers in China is silly, they make up just as much money as the domestic box office and they are absolutely crucial to a big movies success.
