Thread: Movies That Do Not Age Well

    I had to mention this in some type of forum but I had recently watched Batman Forever for the first time in like 15 years and let me say it is no where near as good as I had remembered it to be. For one thing Jim Carrey completely makes the entire movie a chore to sit through. His antics are way too over the top, even before he becomes The Riddler. It should be worth mentioning that several aspects of the story seemed almost as if they shouldn't have been included at all. Robin for example, just seems like he was just tacked on for fan service, as it almost becomes distracting to the plot of the film whatever that is. Also Jim Carrey becomes too much of a central piece of the entire thing causing Tommy Lee Jones' Two-Face to merely become like a down-played second fiddle to Riddler as opposed to being his accomplice. Anyway it was quite different from when I first watched it.

      Pretty much any movie from the 70s or 80s. (yes that includes a few of the ones so many people on here jerk off to all the time)

        Not true about Mad Max and Indiana Jones: Raiders IMHO, whose the action sequences are still better than some of today's pussified CGI stinkers.

        Back to the topic, I'd say movies that have stuff we don't or rarely see nowadays e.g cassette tapes, characters using phone booths, dated hairstyles such as flat-tops or mullets

          Mad Max has aged horribly. It looks like someone filmed it on their 8mm home movie camera.

            Natural Born Killers. It may have looked good for its time, but not so much now.

                  Dude, Where's My Car? I'm pretty sure that became dated while it was still in theaters.

                    Titanic (yes very 1997ish)
                    Batman Forever
                    Crocodile Dundee


                    I agree about the 70s movies and the 60s ones too. If they have a long intro with dated music they are probably very dated in general.

                      Classic horror films like Friday the 13th Part 3 and Halloween II.

                          there's not even enough "things" in that statement to warrant them ignorant. this is all opinion anyway.

                          Wall Street seems to be getting worse with every viewing, the apartment renovation scene borders on hilarious now

                            Friday the 13th Part 2 looks much too new for its time. It was released in theaters in 1981, but it looks like it was made in the 90s.

                              Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Obviously my memories of the first time I saw it are not going to be reliable, since I was the perfect age for Turtle-mania.
                              I watched it a few months ago and it's just really bad. It's so corny. I would have thought it would be better than the old cartoon. Maybe it is but I expected the movie to be less than completely cringeworthy and embarrassing and it isn't.

                              The beginning seems kind of serious but once the turtles show up and start acting goofy it all goes out the window. It's weird because the plot of the movie comes straight from the original comic books. They are good stories. Just buried under mountains of terrible dialog. And ham.

                                The Core. Pretty much any 90s movie that heavily relied on computer animation. The effects are so much better now it's a wonder how I sat through those old ones.

                                    I've seen B-Movies from the 90s with better visual fx than some newly released DTV movies.

                                        War of the Worlds (1953), but probably since Star Wars has spoiled us in the past 35+ years.

                                          It's a 50's scifi movie. Probably the one who carve the way for all of the same genre like Star Wars. Not to mention one of the best in scifi genre of all times.

                                          ... in short, what the hell are you talking about?!
