Well I think someone's got some explaining to do. I mean... why? Can't you edit the reader reviews? I thought this was a site for movies of shoestring budget; movies of the B grade and the likes.

Also, why is tomb raider there? I don't get it. It seems so out of place to be sitting beside "They Saved Hitler's Brain".

Sorry to be a nitpick or something, but dude...

The site is called "Bad"movies.org, not B-movies.org. Although there are plenty of "B" grade flicks present. It comes down to your own interpretation of what "B" means if you are going to use that term, but here it has become a large blanket term.

Well I still don't think it belongs on a website to the detriment of good film. Even if it is a "bad" movie, it's a pretty good "bad" movie, considering.

But that's just my two cents

A very simple answer:  Some people do not like "Titanic." 

I am not taking down a posted review because someone disagrees with it.

I'm a little disappointed is all...

Badmovies.org hasn't seemed to review mainstream bad movies before, and I find it kinda upsetting to find Titanic on here. Titanic was a great achievement; the sets were breathtaking.

I understand if a reviewer didn't like this movie, but I really believe it doesn't belong here.

Thats in the eye of the beholder friend...IMHO this film was and still is one of the worst ever.  Awful acting, awful dialog, plenty of loop holes.  I won't go on, simply look up my rants on this board regarding this film or Allhallowsday's rants.

TITANIC is a pretty damned good BAD MOVIE...  I also think, as CircusCircus put it so succinctly regarding TOMB RAIDER, it "sux ass".

Even if you disagree with a movie being listed on the site, I don't see how it's a "trouble ticket."  This forum is mostly for technical issues.  There are 6 pages of posts of people debating whether TITANIC should or should not be reviewed on the site on the review page: http://www.badmovies.org/othermovies/titanic/

It's OK, Jimmybob.  I just thought you might like to check out the thread and the debate there.   Smile 

I suppose I was a little annoyed by the question, because I think big-budget Oscar-winning Hollywood productions are UNDER-represented on the site.  But it's all good.  Everyone differs on what constitutes a "bad" movie.

Yeah...

But the thing is, there's stuff like "Bad Taste" in the review section. Now that's one of the damn best movies I, and other people I know have seen in my lifetime; sp I wouldn't at all call it bad. It's made on cheap budget, but it's still ultimately "good". So my interpretation would be that this website is devoted towards low budgets films and cult movies.

It's just what I thought.
