Five films I like better now than I did when I was a kid. In no real order.
I first saw this when I was maybe 12 and thought it was alright, but I think the slow pace didn’t click with me. I saw it a decade or slow later and loved the mood.
I was a diehard fan of the original Kong and wasn’t huge on the 1976 film when I first saw it. In more recent years I recognize it as a decent attempt to update the story.
The original Nosferatu is a classic and one of the best vampire films ever. The 1979 version seemed so caught up in it’s artsy style or so I thought the first time I saw it. The next time I saw it years later it sunk in as a different interpretation, not better but a very strong attempt.
I saw Marooned on TV when I was maybe 11 and just getting into sci-fi films. I was expecting space adventure and was bored. Watching it in more recent years I see it as a space disaster-action flick trying to convey some of what was going on with space missions of the time.
As a huge Trek fan I was very much looking forward to this film. I found it dull, unoriginal and at times even tedious. I may be cheating a little here, but the director’s cut appealed to me more. The film is still far from great, but I have better grasp of what they were to do with it now. I still don’t like those pajama style uniforms though.
