Default Movies That Have Not Aged Well?

Which movies have not aged well? And by this I don't necessarily mean due to fashions of the time, or poor quality film making etc, but more so to do with they haven't stood the test of time too well, in terms of narrative, acting, plots or just crap to look at now.

I'll start...

Pulp Fiction

Truly dire borefest of totally ridiculous stories (or should that be non-stories) ever assembled.

If anyone can actually answer what the hell this movie is about I'll give that person a gold star!

Same for most of Tarantino's movies, really overrated self important garbage, except Jackie Brown, which in my opinion is his best movie!

I am prepared for that. It's a crap movie and definitely deserved to lose to Forrest Gump, for once the Academy got it right.

Really overrated garbage, probably the most overrated movie ever made!

Just as soon as you specify what about it hasn't "aged well".

Why didn't you just make this an "I Hate Tarantino" forum because you completely jumped off your own topic and never recovered.

First few things that come to mind...
  • Henry and the Hendersons--the last half is just way too sappy.
  • Short Circuit--Johnny 5 is annoying and too much of the film is cartoony and obnoxious. Fine kid's movie, but aggravating for adults.
  • The Wizard--never had the pleasure of seeing this as a kid, so I couldn't even connect to the story at all. Nintento stuff is cool and all, but without nostalgia the movie bored me.

I always took it as a study on the hellish nature of the criminal underworld, and each story demonstrates how specific characters manage to escape it through specific means.

I've grown to appreciate Pulp Fiction over time, but on the first watch I found confounding and weird. I don't blame anybody for disliking it.

The Wizard is great for nostalgic purpose, but otherwise a mediocre film to those who didn't grow up watching it. I love watching again and again.

The new HD Remaster is a beauty!

I do love Jackie Brown but to say Pulp Fiction hasn't aged well is nonsense! You might not like the film but it has decent to very good acting (Jackson, Travolta, Willis, Walken, Roth, Keitel, Thurman) and cinematography, sets, costume design that still hold up very well when watched in 2020. It deserves a 4k blu ray release!

I never understood the notion of a movie not aging well. When I sit down to an older movie, I imagine that I'm watching it in the year it was produced. Movies are all time capsules, so if someone thinks a movie like Wall Street hasn't "aged well" because of outdated fashions and cell phones, they're not making a bit of effort.

However, none of that matters here, as this thread is very deceptive. It was clearly started for the sole purpose of voicing the unpopular opinion that Pulp Fiction is "garbage." This thread should probably be deleted. It's utter B.S.

Crap movie?

You don't have to like it... but spewing that shit over a masterpiece of filmmaking that somewhat changed movies for years to come, is a joke and completely over-the-top. I will never take anything you say in this forum seriously again.

There was a pretty great podcast about this called Does Your Favorite Movie Suck?

They ended it a couple years ago but the old episodes are still available I think.

Why do "adults" always demand that children's movies serve them better? Short Circuit is aimed at younger people - not 40 year-old neckbeards that can't move on from their childhood obsessions. I see this nonsense all the time, like idiots wanting more "adult" themed Transformers cartoons/movies.

Watched my Short Circuit Blu a few weeks ago (it'd been unopened on my shelf for years). Hadn't seen it since the theater. I had a great time with it, and I'm definitely no kid. It also reignited my decades old crush on Ally Sheedy.

Odd that someone would blame a movie for not "aging well" when they're the one who isn't "aging well", as they're rapidly losing their ability to have fun with an '80s family film.

I've given my eighteen-month-old post some more thought. You both made me realize the extent of my ignorance and I now see that my post was inappropriate. It was meant to express an opinion, but I don't know why I chose to blame a film for my own lack of understanding or appreciation, and there is no excuse. I apologize for showing such disrespect to the film and its fans, and I apologize for offending you.

Thank you for shedding light on this. It seems that I have indeed aged poorly, and I intend to find some way to address it.

I lashed out as a cautionary gesture: If you voice negative opinions about Short Circuit in public, you'll likely be attacked. The world is cruel and unforgiving when you're not a Johnny 5 fan.
