Wyll said: As a guy who watches 100+ movies a year, I can honestly say that I rate movies based on how well they entertained me, regardless of budget size. I would like to say that a great story will help carry a movie with a low budget, but I often find it is not the lack of money that is a problem, but a lack of experience with the production crew that can really hurt a low budget film. I agree with Scott: the instant I see something that takes me out of enjoying the film (i.e. bad acting, poor lighting), I tend to rate the film a lot lower. Big plot holes and things that push my suspension of belief way too far will earn a turkey rating for me.
