As you'll know if you've ever so much as glanced at a box office report, it's not uncommon for movies that aren't very good to make ass-loads of money. For example, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Maleficent are the fourth and fifth highest-grossing movies of 2014, earning (that's not the right word) a combined total of almost $500 million in the U.S. alone despite being crimes against humanity forged in the dark recesses of hell.
On the other side of that coin are the good movies that tank. Often these are limited-release films with small marketing budgets, with nothing but glowing reviews and positive word-of-mouth to propel them. Sometimes they're VOD releases that barely even tried a theatrical run. In other cases they have limited appeal no matter how many screens they're on, destined to never be blockbusters.
If you assume that minuscule box office returns mean the movie was bad, you're missing out on some real gems. Of course, you're also avoiding some awful dreck, too. That's why we're here to separate the low-grossing wheat from the deservedly unsuccessful chaff. Here are 10 Good Movies from 2014 That Made Less Than $1,000,000.
