I'm just sad that my ability to say...

"Her pants are blazing for you, Newton Crosby."

..in character is no longer PC.

Actually thinking about it doesn't Newton Crosby actually sound like a deliberately fake name you might expect in a Cronenberg film next to Darryl Revok, Max Renn and Seth Brundle?

Smokey and the Bandit.

I am old enough to remember the trucker CB craze but I didn’t find myself laughing at it much when I rewatched last year.

Yeah, I loved those movies when I was 7 or 8 years old but I look at them now and just scratch my head that these were smash hits with actual adults back in the day. The whole 70s "Hillbilly Chic" thing is such a bizarre mystery now. That was one weird, weird decade.

Get a grip, let them be whoever they want/need to be without it interfering with your life. Doesn't change Juno, Super, Hard Candy or any of the other gems that Page has made.

Yes, you do need to get your hearing tested!

The film is about a girl who gets pregnant, and the lead actress now identifies as a man. So of course it hasn't aged well!

You are right, it doesn't interfere with any of our lives directly, but if you sit down and watch Juno you're going to be thinking about it!

I haven't seen it in years but I remember it being a fantastic film. My mates at school were all raving about it. Michael Cera seemed very popular back then. I also remember seeing Youth In Revolt in a packed cinema and thinking it was awful!

I would disagree since I really don't think something that happens to one of the actors away from the movie would impact it not aging well. If it does, then just pick movies where one of the primary actors later is found out to be a murderer, rapist, or commits some other heinous crime. So any Bill Cosby comedy.

Yes there are two ways of looking at this 'hasn't aged well' phrase.

Some people think that 'hasn't aged well' means 'this film is now crap'.

I think of 'hasn't aged well' to mean 'that wouldn't be released in that manner today'. Page would not be cast in that role today for obvious reasons! Also you are likely to think about this at least once whilst watching Juno - which you could argue enhances or detracts from the film depending on your views.

One of my friends recently said that Hitch and I Am Legend 'haven't aged well'.

Has pre-DC James Bond aged well?!

Some of my favourite films haven't aged well!

I'll see if I can pick up Juno on Blu-ray, I want it in my collection now.

Except for Rami's first Spider-man none of the Marvels films have aged well and instead look absurd with cartoonish CG.

JJ's Star Trek has also aged badly and is dead as a door-nail.

Godzilla vs King Kong? It will not be long from now that people will laugh at the CG and really dumb story.

Films that will age well: Watchmen, Birdman, Spotlight and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Luc Besson's The Lady: when he made it Aung Sang Suu Kyi was a modern saint and Nobel laureate, six years later she was arresting reporters and an unapologetic handmaiden to genocide. It was widely dismissed as a maudlin hagiography at the time but it's fair to say it's become a major embarrassment with age.

Page wouldn't be the main character in Juno now for two reasons, the second being too old. Personally I don't really think of the actors personal life when I watch TV or movies. I despise the politics of Charlton Heston but I own about 5 of his BD's.

I was thinking not aged well that the movie was crap, not that it would need to be made differently now. Think of most older movies/TV shows lack of diversity, woman in mostly subservient, stereotypes, etc, and a lot of stuff would have need to be redone if reissued. Two of the last series I bought on BD, Monty Python and the Flintstones had some extremely problematic issues.

I think except the Sean Connery, Lazenby, and a couple of Roger Moore Bond movies aged well. As they got into more silly gimmicks, I didn't like them much when they were coming out and I never bought those.

Spot on.

And the Connery 007 movies may not have aged well in one respect, but they're dear to me because I saw them around the time when they were released, so there's that nostalgic thing going on. So for me they have have aged well because they're solidly made and still entertaining. Plus they were groundbreaking at the time. And I definitely can't say that about all the films around I saw at the age. Some haven't aged well to me, but plenty of others have and likely due to them being so well made and/or still relevant in themes.

I'm in my early 30's, and I still watch that first one regularly...mostly for Burt Reynolds and the Trans Am, though. The music is fun too...it's like the American version of The Italian Job: the story may not have held up amazingly well, but you've got some good actors/performances, fun car chases and a catchy soundtrack. They're just fun movies

If you're focused on the actor instead of the character you're missing the point of movies.

I don't disagree about the movie. Burt Reynolds was at peak-charisma and could pretty much carry anything back then. What I was referring to mostly was the CB-and-Redneck Craze that literally took over America in the 70s. Lasted right up until around 1980-81 when Urban Cowboy seemed to finally burn out the last of the enthusiasm (thank God). It was really WEIRD seeing people in big cities who'd probably never come within 100 miles of an actual cow or horse running around in Stetson hats, skin-tight starched blue jeans and sh*t-kicker boots. Very strange indeed.

Although honestly I think it stands as much as a monument to the western fantasy that she was ever actually running the country, just a figurehead for the military used to get sanctions dropped.
