Fall from Grace: Movies You Stopped Loving

An Afternoon Comment Diversion / Ranylt Richildis

If Pajiba comments are any sort of barometer, Highlander is the kind of movie we loved as sprats but deride as adults. Some flicks just don’t hold up for some people — that’s just the way it goes. That’s not to say there isn’t still plenty of love for the film, or at least for the Kurgan; its fan exodus does, however, suggest that Lambert’s most famous role hasn’t exactly aged as gracefully as Diane Lane.

We all have these films in our hearts — titles we once cherished but which have since fallen from grace in our personal catalogues. Along with Highlander, one of my biggest fall-from-grace flicks is Split Second, the 1992 Rutger Hauer dystopic that worked magic on me when I was 22, but which, more than a decade on, leaves me with a sad little blackened hole in my chest. I once considered Split Second a nutty, Robocop-style cheese-romp, but now I think it just kind of sucks, despite my persistent love for cheese, nuts, Hauer, and the leather-Uzi-future-alien-extermination genre.

What one-time favorites of your own have toppled off their pedestals?
