I can get why people don\'t like arthouse films or foreign films, but to dismiss a whole bunch of films, thrown together by someone with a specific dislike towards the genre, and then having other people who haven\'t even seen most of the examples here and can\'t judge whether this derogatory term fits or not to just be like \'\'Yeah, man, I hate \'difficult foreign movies\'\' too, let\'s just smack a hateful name on it and even index these movies as being \'\'shlock\'\', even though that violates the \'\'YMMV\'\' section and other people might even enjoy these movies.\'\'

Well, my point isn\'t the name alone. It\'s the entire definition as such. What I also find fascinating about the discussion in the \'\'Trope Repair Shop\'\' is that most people talking about the subject don\'t even have a clue what kind of films these are and just generally assume \'\'Yeah, it\'s European arthouse trash, so \'Euroshlock\' is actually a good title.\'\' To me, it\'s like taking a lot of Afro-American movies of bad quality and branding them as \'\'Negro Shit\'\' or defining bad American films as \'\'Yankee Garbage\'\'.

Look at the \\\'\\\'OscarBait\\\'\\\' page. Also a degrading name, but at least the movies suggested and summarized there weren\\\'t indexed. Rightfully so, because defining whether something is good or bad in the index shouldn\\\'t be a concern of this site.
