Very valid points... arrrg, "pulp films..." no redeeming quality.

My statement regarding "quality" was more geared at optical quality and effects. .. sorry I wasn't more clear on that. Your point is well taken... I can't even imagine the "pitch" that must have been made for some of the crap out there.

There was a time when "horror" required no blood, "drama" required no death, and "death" required no actual scene.

The hyper realism of today’s movies doesn't make them better... but THAT IS what audiances expect.
