I started this thread because I watched "The Crow" the other night for the first time since its release.Loved it back then but now I wonder why.
What about yourselves...don't be shy

The Tall Guy. The start of the Hell known as Richard Curtis RomComs.

Crocodile Dundee aged badly, quickly.

I can't believe now that I saw (and enjoyed) American Pie in the cinema at the time. It seems over the past decade that I have grown to no longer find farts and spunk funny

Hackers.

I still watch it every other year for giggles, though. Especially for the bit where they ooh and aah over her 28.8 kbps modem, the fastest at the time.

Star Wars (or whatever they're calling it these days). I thought it was a fantastic film at the time but with hindsight, the acting and dialogue are laughable.

Avatar. It's pretty painful to watch now, but I loved it at the time.

When I was a kid there were three films I must have rented out enough times to keep a small video store in business for years: Octopussy, A View To A Kill and........Teen Wolf Too. I effing loved those films.

Recently, I watched Teen Wolf Too on Five. Oh sweet jesus. What. A. Pile. Of. Crap. Cannot for the life of me see what I enjoyed about it. I was aware of the reviews and it's general standing in the history of bad cinema way back when but only now as an adult do I see it for the truly ghastly experience that it is.

Still love Octopussy and AVTAK though

The Star Trek films, along with the Star Trek TNG tv series. I used to be a fan of those, and saw a few of the films at the cinema. I cannot be bothered with them now. I hardly watched DS9 or any later series, so they don't come into it.

Having said that, there are still plenty of episodes from the original '60s tv series that I do still enjoy watching.

Rocky IV

I took my Son to see it at the cinema a good few years ago when it first came out. Number 4 in the series had the story of Rocky avenging the death of his friend Apollo by fighting the big bad Russian guy in Siberia on Christmas Day for no money! Ridiculous storyline of course but enjoyable nonsense all the same. What made it fun at the time was seeing the cinema crowd get really into it by jumping out of their seats cheering Rocky when he fought back and booing the bad Russian when he beat on the hero. The crowd was going bonkers! I was one of those people!

I saw the film on TV last week. Oh dear! What a load of old cobblers! But still, it brought back a few good memories!

Hudson Hawk - 11 year old me thought this was one of the greatest movies ever, I didn't know anything about movie reviews at that age. I haven't watched it in 20 years, so I don't want to sully what memories I have.

Highlander. Still a great story, the film has not aged well at all though.

Gremlins.
I thought it was brilliant when it first came out, but now...ugh !
The way Phoebe Cates acts like a 12 year old, telling Billy to "Cross your T's" when he signed something (a cheque I think it was)
The stupid hairstyle and hairband worn by Phoebe Cates
Zach Galligan
The pantomime villainess
The pathetic "Christmas story from her childhood" told by Phoebe Cates
Etc

Mannequin. I loved it when I was a kid then I saw it again a few years ago for the first time since the 80s and realised the film was awful

Similar thing with Supergirl, loved it as a kid, hated it as a adult

Go wash your mouth out.

Garbage Pail Kids I loved when I was a kid, only lasted about 10 mins when we saw it on Netflix with a 'What the hell is this' from my kids
