If a movie is good, then it's good. It doesn't matter what its budget is.
Actually, Amélie is an ace film, and I'm not just saying that because it's French and done in a slightly crazy, offbeat style. Also I too tend to find it tiring when people dismiss Hollywood films for not being low-budget, edgy and "different". Mind you, I'm talking about the people who can only possibly like a film on the grounds that nobody else has heard of it ...
