Default Movies you use to dislike, but have grown on you.

Batman Forever, I use to hate this movie and put it in the same category as Batman & Robin. However, after rewatching it recently, its really not that bad of a movie. I enjoyed Val Kilmer as Batman, loved the Kilmer Costume. Enjoyed The Riddler, though I do think they got Two Face all wrong in the movie (he was more Joker like than Two Face). The Action was good, it was still dark, had a good music.

However, I will never, ever, ever find Batman & Robin to be a good film, my opinion still stands on that film lol.

Bats #3 was a fun film. I saw them on cable a few weeks ago and they were so funny. I understand on B&R. BF had a great soundtrack. I listened to it on cassette tape. lol

What movie grew on me? I'll probably say Titanic. When it came out 15 years ago there was no way I was going to like it. But I recently saw it on TNT and I started to appreciate the work that Cameron did to make it entertaining. The dialogue wasn't all that bad either. I loved the comic timing of Kate and Leo. Billy Zane was the best douche cad. Loved Kathy Bates and her almost adopting Jack as her own. The acting was overall really great! I found the on ship band to be like Monty Python. I have a special appreciate for Victor Garber (pre-Alias). Love his character and his voice. It deserved all the nods and wins.

I know what you're thinking: "say whaaa"

When this movie came out, I was 17 year old angsty teen who was ready to believe general superhero movies would always suck and about to leave them behind with my childhood. Even after watching it I couldnt have cared less. Just coming off of Spider-Man 3, Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four 2, Superman Returns and X-Men 3. I just thought it was more of the same.

Granted, even back then I wouldve claimed it was a notch above the rest, I just wasn't ready to love it. Everything that has happened since that first viewing has allowed the movie to grow on me. I saw Incredible Hulk and RDJ in it before I ever saw Nick Fury in IM. At this I was like... O.O no way. Then The Dark Knight and by that time I was tentatively back on board. 2009 almost killed it again with Origins: Wolverine, but then by IM2/Thor's Hammer stinger, I was ready for the tidal wave.

The two that spring to mind for me are Drive and Zodiac. I didn't enjoy either of them at all upon first viewing, but for whatever reason(s) they both stuck in my head. Watching them again, I really enjoyed them, and have seen both a few times since.

Martin Scorsese's Cape Fear. First I thought it was just good then later on I realized it was great.

Be Kind Rewind. I literally couldn't get through it the first time. Then I caught the rest of it on cable and thought it was ok. I don't love it, but it's mildly likable and the actors are good.

I usually am the opposite my memory of how bad something was fades over time and when i watch it I find its much worse than I remember.

That being said, Kill Bill went from horrible to merely bad for for me when I watched it recently.

I hated The Master when I saw it, but have a newfound appreciation for it after watching Going Clear (Scientology documentary).

However, I still find Joaquin's performance to be unbearable and silly.

I agree. Even though I'm not a huge fan of the film, I really liked PSH's subtle and powerful performance and the cinematography.
Also it really feels to me that there is a before and after "I'm Still Here" Joaquin Phoenix, even though they said it was an hoax (which I'm still not completely convinced it was lol), it really feels like his persona and acting have changed after that weird documentary.
Also, great new avy Rowsdower

The American. When I saw it in theaters I did not enjoy it much at all. I bought it super cheap on a whim one day and gave it another go. It's actually really amazing. I've watched it about 6 times since.

Default Re: Movies you use to dislike, but have grown on you.

I remember really hating Cabin in the Woods when I went and saw it in the theatre. It just seemed like a muddled mess of a film that didn't know what it wanted to be, taking a stab at too many different things and doing none of it well. But then I, for some unknown reason, watched it again at home like a year later and I thought, huh, that's kind of clever, lol.

Same deal with Black Swan, kind of. Not that I ever really "hated" it but I just wasn't sure what to make of it the first time. I appreciated the weirdness much more after a second viewing.

My latest one, DareDevil the movie with Ben Affleck. Its kind of like Batman Forever, has is very very bad parts but has a lot of good parts as well. The final fight with The Kingpin in the Sprinklers going off was awesome I thought.

Blade Runner. I didn't outright dislike it when I first saw it, and I was of course impressed with many aspects, but I couldn't help but feel disappointed at first with what was hailed as one of the greatest films of all time. Each subsequent viewing has increased my enjoyment of the film, to the point that it is now one of my favorite films of all time (the director's cut that is).

Maybe there should also be a thread about the movies people loved as a kid and then realized later on that they were not that good.

Sooo all of them? I kid, I kid, but most kids movies don't hold up so good. Warriors of Virtue anyone?

I didn't necessarily mean kid movies but more like movies that people watched when they were younger and loved, and that don't hold up that well upon revisiting later on.

Yeah totally get it. Most of my Netflix stuff lately has been revisiting stuff I loved when I was younger that now feels kinda lame.

I don't know if it's so much that they don't hold up. What may work for a kid may simply not work for an adult. It doesn't always mean it's not as good as you remember.

I watched Grease many times when I was a kid, and never realized how dirty it was until I was in my early twenties. I was quite shocked.

A Clockwork Orange.

First time I saw left me in a state of confusion. Now it's my favorite of all time.

Strange right?
