From the OP list, the only one I have seen is Cutthroat Island - it's a fun movie, shouldn't just be judged on takings alone.

Yeah, Cutthroat Island isn´t bad at all.
I also liked The 13th Warrior and Heaven's Gate is almost a classic.

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Krull
Hudson Hawk
Eveny Horizon
Megaforce
The Black Cauldron

Whatever the reason of their box office flop, right now they are consider cult classics. People were stupid back then.
