I was watching a rather amateur zombie film the other day. Acting wasn't bad, cinematography not bad but it ran almost 2 hours and didn't need to. It could have been trimmed quite a bit in the editing phase. I kept watching seeing whole little segments that could have been cut and move the story line along better.
I have more fun watching movies from other countries because I like to see stories set in other cultures. It's interesting to see how their productions strapped with a low budget can still get something good out using "economy of means." There's a documentary about Nigeria's film industry which is one of the world largest. But it's all very cheap and distributed on VCDs. Talk about "economy of means."
