It says this in that section:

"It features an incoherent plot, bizarre dialogue, inept acting, intrusive narration, the cheapest conceivable special effects"

Isn't like...all of these points completely subjective? Should I barge into a '50s movie saying the "acting is unrealistic, as it is in all pre-'60s movies"? This is ridiculous.

Didn't the term Z movie come from producer Samuel Z. Arkoff[edit]

I thought it was pretty common knowledge that the term "Z movie" came from the career of Samuel Z. Arkoff, who produced a whole slew of successful low-budget movies matching the "Z" description. I don't have any published sources claiming this, but it would be worth keeping an eye out for one. John Schulien (talk) 02:35, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
