Did someone say GIGLI  Thumbup Smile ?

Joe, definately pick up SHOCKWAVES for $3 unless your on a strick budget.

Trying to split the catagories a bit. Maybe someone can add to these definitions.

1) Movie Classics (Casablanca)
2) Great Movies (Mad Max)
3) Strange Movies (Eraserhead)
4) Low Budget Films (Plan 9 From Outer Space)
5) Boring Movies (Battlefield Earth)

It's also neat to see one board where all types of films are listed under General Movie Discussion, but I'm kinda getting use to the different catagories now. Just playing with some ideas. Plus we seem to be getting a lot of new members with this new format.

Once you open a catagory it's hard to close it and move things to the appropriate catagory, so Andrew has to take his time deciding on this. The theme of his site is "Bad" movies, so perhaps the "Bad Movie" catagory should be above the "Good Movie" catagory. The good films conversation being more of a side topic.

Well, if I screwed up by making the new category I would rather get smacked around for it and told I need to find a solution.  I would rather not cause confusion and such by creating a new category.

I like the idea of a "good movie" catagory. The key will be when someone actually watches a "good movie" and then post about that movie here. The definition question will vanish and you will have some neat discussion about Westerns, WWII Films, Classics, and such. I think it will work once it gets going.

Andrew...Ignore these guys.  (except for Scott)
This "Good Movies" section is awesome and I'll be sure to post lots of topics here.

Don't let them sway you. 
This section is just a shock to their systems.

They'll get over it.

And if they don't...well...there's always that Bad Movies section for them to post in.

I like the sub-caption under "Good Movies" that says "Yeah, we watch these too".  Thumbup. That statement really sums up this forum.

I will admit I was alittle skeptical about a Good Movies section. Its not that bad so far. Guess I was wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.  Cheers

I really think Good and Bad are open to intepretation. I suspect in fact there does exist people who actually go find so called bad movies good and vice versa. Personally to me, most Oscar winners of the last few years are absolute crud. Also feel that Star Wars is an overglorified B-movie and I think ARMAGEDDON perhaps the worst movie I've ever seen (even worse than JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH (1989), THE APOCALYPSE (1997) and THE CREEPING TERROR). I agree with Andrew about leaving it open to the own user's interpretation but even what you consider the best movie ever is someone else's trash.

I think we should have a category for "just OK" movies. I see a lot of movies I would trash or give a good  recommendation to, because hey they were "just OK".

Since we get good laughs from our "bad movies" maybe another catagory is needed for regular "comedy films" which is a different kind of flavor. They don't seem to fit under the "Good Movie" nor "Bad Movie" labels.

I think a GOOD MOVIE is a movie YOU really believe is GOOD! Regardless of what anyone else might think.  If one disagrees then agree to disagree on it. I'm SURE I'm 100% POSITIVE we all have films that we like that someone else thinks is the worst piece of crap ever. Regardless of how much we argue the artistic merits of the film, somebody isn't going to like it and vise versa.

Look at and forum on any movie on IMDB, nearly every one has a best movie ever and a worst movie ever thread.

Well that's my $0.02 now I'm broke.
