A fiend of mine, Shannon, a former deputy who now owns a gun shop shared this question on Facebook:
What (most often) makes a bad movie bad?My answer(s):
The script? The acting? The production quality? Or something else?
The script is foundational. All the rest is onion icing on the cake.
Wait. The Concept is the plate on which the cake rests.
Imagine the Concept meetings selling Octorhana Typhoon. "It's GREAT JB! It'll kill 'em on their couches....A mad scientist develops a genetic hybrid: an octopus with piranha mouths in its suckers. Then there is a TYPHOON! I tell ya, JB, it'll be COLOSSAL!
Feel free to weigh in!
