Artistic is a perfectly fine word, IMO.

Titular is a really dumb word, but often a very convenient one.

Bomb is interesting because it's basically completely voluntary slang. Why, Junior, why? ;D

If I were to guess at the rest of that sentence, I'd say it would be about the kind of glee that people say the word with. Like they're reveling in the box office failure of a movie entirely separate from the actual artistic (ahem) quality of the film.

Huh, I was joking but that's actually a good point! Seems obvious now, but I never considered how the term is really only used to describe financial failure.

What's wrong with the word titular ? I miss it in other languages.

Is titular dumb because eponymous exists ? Because otherwise I don't see a problem with it, unless you don't like silly sounding words.

Page 1 of the very first "Write about the last movie you watched" thread is pretty interesting.

hopefully, this catches on.

Reply #1 is Junior's review of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Thoughts come through clear, but you can see how far Junior has come when expressing his opinions.

Reply #2 is a mixed review of Watership Down and Reply #4 is karlwinslow replying with an Avatar from the film.
