    How well the story flows and how realistic the conversation is. I sometimes wonder if some script writers ever actually talk to real people ;-)

    well there are a lot of different factors that make a movie good or bad. Obviously some main ones include mise en scene, cinematography, editing, story, sound, and acting. Although even the greatest movie on the planet probably isn't going to be loved by everyone...so I would say by the end of the day it really all comes down to individual taste.

    Lots of things, the story line, the acting, effects, production...
    It has nothing to do with how many people like the film, or whether it has a cult following, any film can fall into those categories, whether or not they follow the requirements for being good.

    if it makes me scream, then it's a good movie but if it makes me sleep, then it's a bad one

    The acting and script... all the special effects in the world can't save a movie if the acting or dialogue is crappy.

    I think it has something to do with whether or not it sucks, mostly.

    There are soooo many things that makes a movie bad...
    bad acting
    bad directing
    bad editing
    bad script
    bad storyline
    no chemistry between actors

    and good movie?
    excellent acting
    great directing
    good storyline
    good editing
    good chemistry between actors

    I love movies.. I go to the movies at least once a week.

    Have a nice day,

    Personally, I judge whether it's a good movie or not based on its ability to elicit some type of emotion while watching it. Beyond that, it's very difficult to quantify or make specific rules.

    There are many diffrent factors that control the outcome of a movie's quality. A strong script and a good director are very important, and so, of course, are actors.
