PS: IMDb Poll Board: Movies You Feel Different About, Negatively

Please contribute by picking your movie!

And also take your pick in the related poll: Movies You Feel Different About, Positively

Description:

After a while, maybe after a re-watch, you can feel different about a movie. It can be because the movie was shot in a different era, the mood you was in at the time, you could (not) identify yourself to the story/character or just because you gained new insights by thinking of reading about the movie.

The IMDb poll board members have chosen the movies they feel different about, negatively. After the first viewing they thought the movie was good. But now they think the movie is bad/mediocre. Which movie do you think became worse after a period of time?

My list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls089512318/

Off the top of my head, Scary Movie (2000).

It was released when I was 17/18 & I laughed my ass off, given that it was a parody of some of the slasher films released in the preceding ~5 years.

I rewatched it a decade or so later and was like "WTF is this shit?".

Most of the MCU films, but especially Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014).

I just re-watched bits of The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) which I rated 7/10. Except for the spider-man costume, it is total garbage. I will need to re-rate it somewhere between 3/10 and 5/10.

My love of superhero films seems to have greatly diminished between May 4th, 2012, the release date of The Avengers (the first superhero film that I have seen in a theater) and now.

The Garfield Spider-Man films were rather bad. I have the 1st installment rated 6 and the 2nd rated 4.

Holland's portrayal is most true-to-character vis-a-vis the comic books.

I still love the Maguire ones the most, though.

I never understood why Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man costume looks off or like computer-generated imagery (at least some of the time). Maybe it is, or maybe it isn't, but it looks cartoony, whereas the is far less so the case with the costumes for Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland at least match the lighting of the scene. With such heavy reliance upon chroma key imagery (blue screen, green screen, infrared mattes etc.) in today's movies, I'm slightly amazed at how well the Marvel Cinematic Universe materials turned out, but of course, as we know, computer-generated imagery is done correctly when the audience cannot even tell that it is even involved. This applies to animatronics, puppets, miniatures, mattes and all the other techniques too.

Good idea! I know I have definitely experienced this and can think of a few off the top of my head but, to come up with the best examples, I have to think on it a bit and maybe check my lists.

I'm having trouble thinking of a movie that I liked upon first viewing but stopped liking later on, but I know there must be at least a few. For me, I'm finding that there were a lot of movies that I possibly judged too hardly upon first viewing, but wound up being blinded to the few merits that they had.

Something along the lines of The Guyver or its sequel might be just one of several for me, and I didn't even see the original through and through but only the final boss fight. Revisiting it (that particular scene) many decades later, I can definitely see how the great concept could've benefited from a higher production value and cinematographic expertise. I would like to think of an example of something that I used to watch frequently, but no longer have the desire to watch anymore, not even once in a while. The box office flop Masers of the Universe perhaps fits the bill, but its few outstanding redeeming qualities are somewhat clear, even after all these decades, so it is still a fun movie. Many of the products of Cannon Films face similar evaluation. The remake of The Blob is an interesting case, with its heavy reliance upon shock value while depicting the uncovering of a despicable, slightly-contrived coverup by some kind of defense contractor or military research program, but with that in mind, Outbreak and tons of other movies could be lumped with it.
