Earlier today, I received a text from my good friend Robert Cooper who informed me that, while rewatching some of the classic movies he enjoyed back in the day, was shocked to discover that a number of the seminal films from his youth are, upon further review, not that good – or, at the very least, not as good as he remembered. I can empathize as it has happened to me countless times when I’ve revisited some of my old favorites. Sadly, a lot of just don’t hold up.
Some of the movies I LOVED back in the day that I’ve fallen out of love with in time:
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life
To be fair, I’m unimpressed by most of what I see, so this just serves to trim down an already slim list. It makes me almost afraid to re-watch The Sting, Tombstone, Pulp Fiction, and Clue less.
Thank goodness for Die Hard, Misery, and Planes, Train and Automobiles – classics that DO stay the test of time.
So what about you? What movies have you recently revisited that – well, aren’t anywhere near as good as you remembered?
