Kinda borrowing an idea from avclub.com with this. Many movies can seem better after you have watched them multiple times but this is the opposite.

What are some movies that you highly regarded around the time you first watched them but upon revisiting them later they just didn't hold up or you might even consider to have drifted over into POS territory?

A buddy of mine kept going on and on about how awesome Boondock Saints was and how I would love it because I dig the gritty, terse films, ala Tarantino, Scorsese, Kubrick.

So I borrow the DVD from him and oh my God, what a #&*%@ing ghey, lame, retarted[sic] piece of shit movie. What's even more incredible is they made a freaking sequel to it! Damn man, microwaved diareha.

Couldn't agree more. I probably would have considered it a decent late night B movie if not for the absurd hype.

One of my friends has been telling me for a while that I need to check out the documentary "Overnight" which apparently details how big of a raging douch the director is.

Not a single one.

How could you like a movie then decide it sucks later? That doesn't make any sense at all.
If you liked it at one point then there was something good about it to make you like it, and it's not the movie that has changed so... why does it suck now? How could it? Maybe you don't enjoy it like you did, but that's not the movies fault, you've just changed.

Quite a few movies that I liked a lot when I first saw them, but never care to see them again.

American Beauty, for example.

Overnight is a delightful little piece of schadenfreude.

Any music you once liked at the time but now realize it was actually shitty?

there are tons of movies that I thought were awesome 10-15 years ago, then I re-watch it recently and my God it was horrible. Point Break and Armageddon are a couple that come to mind.

Some movies get tainted with how the actors have progressed in real life. Like Minority report was awesome, now I like like hey it's tom cruise being tom cruise!

The Perfect Storm comes to mind. When I first saw it, I thought all the things that happened on the doomed boat were based on radio messages or a journal they plucked from wreckage or something like that, but apparently they just made it all up. Had it been about a fictional boat and a fictional crew, that would have been fine, but they took some serious liberties, and the more I thought about it, the more classless and disrespectful it seemed.

Great special effects - having been in a few nasty ocean storms, it takes a lot to impress me - but I doubt if I'll ever watch it again.

'Commando'.

What?! Come on, that's the awesomest of the awesome 80s "America, F&^K YEAH!" movies!

It's highly quotable, utterly ridiculous and campy, and Arnold weilds an M-60 machine gun with magical ammo belts: one scene, half a belt, same scene but different cut where he turns to blast more bad guys with piss-poor aims, full belt, then another cut, blasting, almost no rounds remaining, cut yet again to three quarters of a belt. Come on man, that shit is magical.

He kills baddies with tool shed items! Chucking radial saw blades like some badass uberninja... plants a pair of hedge trimmers into some other nameless bad guy who was stupid enough to kidnap "Jenny".... that's straight up Chuck Norris!

I think I need to put that movie in my instant watch queue now....

:clap: I guess you've seen it quite a few times?!?!

I loved it as a kid, not so much now. I mean...how can 30 guys shoot autos at Awnold and not hit him. Yet, he hits them all while not aiming, walking out in the open, and never run out of ammo.ROFL

The first one's still pretty good, IMO. The second one was pointless, though. And the third one was absolutely awful.

Commando rules so hard. All of the Hispanic bad guys, if you listen to their Spanish dialogue, they're actually just saying things like "Taco taco, burrito!" to each other. That movie, for the reasons you mentioned and more, is Reagan-era America.
