alot of stuff together - very bad and somehow people go crazy over that unwatchable crap. If anything, Tarantino is the proof that with enough PR and
media hype you can sell even the biggest worthless crap to a stupid audience.

I'd turn to European countries like Spain, France and Germany. E.g. Martyrs is amazing. REC as well. Just really good horrors.
True especially the american 'horror' movies from the past 20 years are laughably bad.
There are also some asian country that make really good horror movies like Tale of Two Sisters from South Korea.
Hollywood was pretty good from the 1930's until the late 1980's after that there was nothing new and they just began to rehash and remake
everything, the younger actors mostly suck, the directors are a joke (you really have to wonder why Michael Bay has a job) and there are maybe 1-2
good movies per year from there.
It's with other countries the same. Germany was really big from the 1920's until the mid-1940's (though by then there of course was lot of nazi
propaganda in the movies) with a lot like classics from Murnau, Lang and others. In the late 1960's there was a revival with Fassbender, Herzog and
others until the late 1980's (i always say that Das Boot was the last good german movie). Since then, only cheap crap was produced or big budget
crap, i don't need anything more to say than Uwe Boll, right?
Japan i think overall is a very good country for movies. From the Akira Kurosawa classics to their modern horror movies or basically everything from
Takeshi Kitano and of course the very good Studio Ghibli Animes. They have a lot of good movies.
I generally don't like French movies, i think they always try to be too 'artsy', too ambitious. They fail most of the time. There's only one movie
from France i like: Les Diaboliques from 1955. Great movie!
Italian is a fun country. Of course they had Sergio Leone and he made awesome movies. Besides that they were one of the premier countries for campy
and trashy movies, often ripping off Hollywood classics and making them stupid. A lot of these movies like Troll 2, Yor - The Hunter from the Future
or countless barbarian movies have become cult classics. They also managed to combine Aliens and Terminator, making one of the most stupid-awesome
movies ever: Terminator II aka Alienators
Overall of course the USA will be named the country with the best movies. When you produce hundreds of movies per year, you can be sure there will be
a lot of gems and especially in the past decades with talented directors like Hitchcock, Spielberg, Coppola, Kubrick, Lynch, Cronenberg, Waler Hill,
Ridley Scott, Peckinpah and lot of others, which even came from other countries it's normale to have a lot of very good movies that will never be
