Here's a question for everyone. Does it really matter to you if b-movie is used as a blanket term?

Doesn't really bother me, although it grates me when people assume the B stands for "bad".  The presumption in some people's minds that there's a direct relationship between budget and quality irks me.

No, it actually describes pretty well what you should expect from a movie.  It's short, sweet and to the point.

That's pretty much how I feel.  Such presumption happens often right here.

Fair remarks.

I've read all the post and have to agree with "Psychotronic" as these films have an intangibly mental something to them. In some cases they expand your mind, bewilder, and in other cases they can dull the mind. These films occasionally "speak" an incomprehensible language when viewed and make us say "What did I just watch?".

The strange, the weird, the odd, and enigmatic mixed with our instinct to discover the unknown and the sometimes effectively unintentional realms of treasured images that push the viewer across great expanses. Any film that can twist and suspend reality. A kind of pure and therapeutic escapism at its finest.

For me it's been a kind of fantasy that maybe someday with a low budget I to could make successful films and this dream all started with the film ED WOOD and the idea that if he could do it so could I.

There's nothing quite like going out without much of a plan, start filming stuff, without resources, time, or even a crew, and then trying to put something together out of pure nothing.

Sergio Leone said "It has something to do with death". In all these films there is some kind of danger, the meeting with the other side.

Or as Criswell would say:

Small | Large

    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.
