His TV directing was pretty good though.

First Contact made 92 million
That's a marginal success yes.
Insurrection was 70 million 28th on the top 50

Frankly when I say flop I guess I mean "no where near the top ten"..or "top 20". First Contact was a better success it's number 17 on it's years list. But honestly I was meaning flop as in...poor stories because those movies really were on the wrong end of the quality marker for me.
