Forums - Movies Discussion - Childhood Movies that are now embarrassing bad movies now

I can still watch Jurassic park *stood the whole time in 93!* goonies is still fun, I would have to agree with never ending story I just dont have the same feeling with it as I did back then.

Screw you guys who said that JP and Neverending Story (at least the first ones in the series) suck now... both are total classics!

I recently watched Independence Day again for the first time in close to 10 years... my god those special FX have aged horribly! I remember that was the biggest summer movie ever the year it opened and everyone was so impressed by the infamous destruction sequences of major landmarks... now it just comes off as horrible schlock, and the aliens are just so comically bad.

As far as embarrassingly bad movies that I used to watch as a kid... I remembered I used to love The Last Starfighter back in the mid 80's... haven't seen it in years and recently picked it up on DVD for dirt cheap. Yeah, it hasn't aged well at all, and the acting is so comically bad its ridiculous.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

Yeah, not sure how I loved The Rugrats Movie, I thought it was awesome until I saw it again, it was so crappy

That film has become so bad over time it's actually good again

That's weird my post didn't show, my laptop doesnt seem to work well with this rich text reply...anyway

I was just saying I can't believe that you liked both FF: The Spirits Within and JP 3 originally. I remember going to see both opening day and being so excited (Especially FF packed house in westwood) but leaving both so horribly disappointed. People walked out of the FF movie where I was but I still thought JP 3 to be the worse of the two mainly because we had two previous movies to compare. The dinosaurs in 3 looked far worse than the other two movies for sure.

I agree. I loved them as a kid. I think they suck now honestly.

That's because unlike the previous JP movies, JP III used much more CGI for closer dinosaur shots. On the other two movies, close up shots of the dinosaurs were left for animatronics, with CGI added only on long shots or to smooth over some of the animations (like the T-Rex rampaging on San Diego). On JPIII, the velociraptor packs were CGI, the Spinosaur was CGI and the majority of the Pterodactyl shots were CGI.

well I only watched FF: The Spirits Within once it hit Disney Channel (I was about 11 years old back then :P) and Jurrassic Park 3 I enjoyed for the T-Rex vs. Spinosaurus fight, which barely lasted any length at all :/
