    I always enjoy old shitty movies on some level because it shows such a cool view of the era it came from. Yet, so many of them really suck when you see them now, don't they?

    What movie that you used to love (when you were dumb & full of it)....just doesn't hold up?

    I recently saw Terminator 1 again, and the effects were just so bad that it distracted me. Terminator 2 holds up very well, I must say. That movie will still be cool in 20 years.

    Another one that surprisingly disappointed me was The Matrix when I saw it recently again. Sure, it's still cool, but now the effects aren't amazing anymore, some stuff is kinda... silly. Don't get me started about the 2 sequels, they shouldn't even had made those.

    Hmmm, let's see... The Blues Brothers was also on TV recently. That will always be my favorite movie probably, nothing can ruin that one for me. I enjoy it from start to the very end of the credits.

    I saw Animal House with John Belushi recently. I still liked it, but it wasn't as funny as I remembered it. Especially the ending felt dragged out and just massively dated.

    Blade, the vampire movie with the black guy that has all the strengths of vampires but not the weaknesses. What a horrible piece of shit that is. Also the Fast & the Furious. Absolutely 100% horrible shit. Those movies were shit to begin with but when I was a kid they seemed so cool.

    Also, Mission Impossible 2 and especially 3. Bad, bad, bad. Tom Cruise is a stupid asshole.

    I skipped through the movies to the action parts. Only 10-15 minutes of those are entertaining.
