I've also had similar reactions to a couple of the SW Prequels, enjoyed both AOTC and ROTS in the cinema (never liked TPM) but frankly don't care for them these days. 





I feel shocked.

Surprised you did a 180 on The Mist though. I think that film just gets better and better.


I feel like I'm watching a Cher video Cotton

Attack the Block.

Watched it on DVD from LoveFilm earlier this year, thought it was quite decent so bought it. Watching it on Channel 4 just now and I'm finding myself wondering "WTF?"

Much as it pains me to say it... Interview With the Vampire I'm not exactly sure what sixteen-year-old-me was thinking when she was certain the casting was spot on.


Brad?


Actually, Brad Pitt's probably one of the least painful... but that's not saying much, considering the casting of Tom Cruise and Antonio Banderas.

Kirsten Dunst is probably the best casting in the whole film. Shame she's not given a performance half as good since!

She really is. I also thought that Cruise was very good in Interview, along with Banderas, but Pitt always stuck out for me. He basically sulks for the entire film. Still love it anyway.

I liked The Devil's Rejects the first few times I saw it. Watched it recently and the acting, script and dialogue it pretty cringe inducing at times.

Wasn't Daywatch the 2nd and 3rd books stuck together? You are right about it being all over the place though. It has some visually great sequences but it's tone flits between dark fantasy, comedy, love story, insanity and back again! It feel like a much different film from Nightwatch.

Do like this scene though!

Watched cult film, The Keep as a youngster, but watched it many years later and was blown away at how awful it was.

trouble is a lot of classics are starting to look dated now, The Great Outdoors feels more like a TV movie these days. I think I cringe sometimes watching some scenes in the Police Academy series. (guilty pleasures)

The two films together are the first book, Nightwatch. Nightwatch the film was based on Part 1 of the first book and Daywatch the film was loosely based on Part 2 and Part 3 of the first book.

I like both films a lot.

For some reason I thought Die Another Day was one of Brosnan's best performances in his career. I rewatched it a couple of weeks ago and it really is quite shit.

It is awful....but Brosnan is great for the first twenty minutes or so...once you get to Iceland it all goes to poop.

The Matrix - It's very much of its time and upon re-watch can become rather cringeworthy.

For me it's The Rock and Armageddon - quite enjoyed both on release; now they're just long and overbloated explosion-fests. Didn't help that He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is now shown to be an egotistical asshole filmmaker.

Actually I think Taxi Driver got better for me on a re-watch, wasn't that keen on it the first time around.

The first Spiderman film is one that comes to mind. Used to love it but can't bring myself to watch it now. Second one is still awesome.

When I was about 15 I thought Once Upon a Time in the West was excellent. Now I think it's a bad film with a few remarkable elements (Morricone's score, the odd shot, Robards' performance). That's the most obvious one I can think of. I had a few problems with Au Hasard Balthazar on repeat viewings, though my feelings about it are generally so confused (revulsion, unhappiness, concerns over narrative coherence) that it may gain back its fourth star in future.


Ha, funny, cause the first time I watched it I hated it. Then I revisited it a few years back and absolutely loved it. Total reverse to you.

next you'll be saying you dont like con air on further viewing?!?. for me those Rock- bad boys- armageddon era movies were the last of the great FUN action movies, with the exception of Fast 5 and Expendables of course.

and with that.. I adored The fast and The furious (No.1) at the cinema, but it is quite poor now. must be since i got rid of my fiesta :)

Weird Sciene - It used to be my favourite of Hughes' films. Watched it a while ago with a friend who's a bit of a snob (particularly about comedy) and it was just painful! I could just feel him boiling inside and I was cringing at the truly abysmal humour!

If it had and said '' Didnt these humans learn ANYTHING from what happened in antartica in 2004? '', maybe not

I was the same. For years I loved that film now like most of the women I have dated it has thrown water in my face in a crowded restaurant and stormed out leaving me slightly ashamed and regretful for ever having been there.
