Two obvious choices for me are Howard the Duck and Moving Violations

Two that I can think of are RAD together with Megaforce.

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.
