How to use 'Amazing'?
Can I use amazing to describe bad things or is amazing only for good things?

Thank you.

It depends on context.

I saw an amazing movie yesterday.

We would assume the movie was very good indeed, however:

The movie was so bad I was amazed. It was amazingly bad. It was amazing how bad the movie was.

Is using amazing to mean very very bad.
