Yes james, I watched BADLANDS.
For starters, I had no way of predicting the violence nor the amount of violence before hand.
It was a great movie in the sense that it was based on a true story. I had never heard of this couple before since this took place before my time. Had it been based on fiction, I would not have watched it.
Just because someone thinks a movie is great and there happens to be violence in it, we are talking about Two different things!
It IS possible to think that a movie in itself is Great and Not like the violence that is in it!
