I mean,do you know any great movie but produced with low-budget? Must all great blockbuster movies be very expenvise?
The first one that comes to mind is Napoleon Dynamite. Great move, but very small budget. I think it made plenty of money.
Depends on the genre, but in general a low budget doesn't preclude high quality. With the festival system for indie films, a number of ultra low budget movies have become big hits. Napoleon Dynamite's a great example, so are films like the Irish "Once" which won an oscar and was made for practically nothing.
depends on what your definition of a big budget film is? i can list a lot of indie movies that were great that didn't cost that much to make. there's "district 9", "kick-ass", "american splendor", "history of violence", "pulp fiction", "cyrus", "blair witch project" and many others. just to name to a few.
It seems a butt-load of that budget is going right into advertising, so unfortuantley alot of low-budget films can't compare, which is sad, considering low-budget films are some of the most abstract/lustrous/beautiful tales told. The hard part is finding them (and sometimes understanding them) .
It depends upon the skill of the one behind the camera. I recently rewatched John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN (1978) and was amazed that this film was made for only $300,000.
Likewise, some of the biggest films of all time were made on fairly miniscule budgets. Both JAWS and STAR WARS cost around $8 million to produce yet turned over $300 million at the box office....
Budget shouldn't matter if the storyline is good to start with.
A prime example of a good movie made on a very small budget is the original "The Terminator". James Cameron made that movie on around $6,500,000 which is a fraction of the $58,000,000 budget that "The Cotton Club" had from the same year.

Okay, let's be honest with ourselves, I know some of you had to have gotten misty eyed while a few movies during your time. To be honest, I try to never allow the emotional factor of films to get to me, as most of them use it disguise how tragically cliche ridden and/or horrible the plot is...

Okay, here's a forum where I want everyone to be brutally honest about how they feel about Michael Bay. Is he a misunderstood genius because all his films do make money, yet critics always seem harsh on his films. OR, is he really just an over rated hack, who represents everything wrong...
