Since RCM started a a thread on low budget vs high budget, it gave me the idea to do a thread about low budget productions that were high quality and high budget productions that were low quality.

Low budget, high quality: Frankenstein unbound. A roger corman flick this movie had some budget issues but was pretty high quality, thanks to hard work, and original script, some great casting and more.

High budget, low quality. Indiana jones and the temple of doom.  The stupidest IJ flick, with utterly ridiculous characters and stupid things like using an air raft as a parachute, plus the notion a guy can kidnap a woman, drag her into danger, actually help a process meant to kill her then 'rescue' her from the terror and danger her dragged her into! A truly awful movie, I'd rather watch kingdom of the crystal skull, another high budget, low quality film but not as offensively stupid and bad.

Low budget, high quality: Babylon 5. I had issues with the show while it ran due to the fhans, who were the fist "toxic fhandom" i ever encountered. Nowe that I'm over that I can appreciate the quality of the show as it's reran on comettv. Yes it looks bad now in some ways and the cgi is worse than some video games, but so what? It's still quality tv.

High budget low quality: Star trek voyager. Or how to take a decent idea and trash it with inane scripts, deus ex endings, technonsense and scibabble. Adding a low talent bimbo with frog eyes and fish lips in a cat suit who landed the role by screwing the producer and you end up with a mess that must have had Gene Roddenberry doing posthumous facepalms.

Low budget high quality. Dredd. a very hardcore gritty action flick with karl urban as the ultimate lawman in a future city that's a mega mess.

High budget low quality: Batman and robin. Good god how can you put that much money into a movie and still have something that looks like the aftermath of king kong eating a mexican restaurant?

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) - $200m budget that shows every penny spend: it looks amazing and there's non stop action, and that's it. The heart and soul went into the technical aspect of the movie, with zero for the actors. Shia LaBeouf's character is shallow, flat and one dimensional. Megan Fox is only there to look good. This is probably the most artificial and soulless summer blockbuster ever made.

The Guest (2014) - Not an amazing or very original movie but a great one considering its minimal budget, plot with a fun twist and solid casting. It intentionally borrows from other movies while still doing its own thing  Thumbup

Since ER started a a thread on low budget vs high budget, it gave me the idea to do a thread about low budget productions that were high quality and high budget productions that were low quality.




I started the thread.

The TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE  is miles above any of the sequels and remakes.
the first EVIL DEAD movie is a classic. The remake is a piece of s**t.

I didn't take it as an insult. I'm sure I'm prettier!  Twirling

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) is also the hands down best zombie movie ever made, even after all the sequels and remakes.

Much better personality too.

Battlestar galactic a reboot.  Had a love  budget.  How low? When you watch the show notice each sheet of paper has flat corners,  it was an in joke about all the corners they bad to cut to make the show on it's budget...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
