Day 16 – 30 Day Movie Challenge

A Movie I Used To Love But Now Hate

Yikes! I only have an hour to give you this day’s challenge before my carriage turns into a pumpkin. There is that word “hate” again. As I said a few days ago, hate takes too much energy. These are movies that I used to like but have put out of my mind or forgotten about. When looking back at some movies that I enjoyed in my childhood and youth, I was amazed at how many I still enjoy. I didn’t watch most of the crap that passed for film in the late 80s and early 90s. But one of the films that I kept coming back to was Batman and Robin. I mean, George Clooney with bat-nipples and two inept sidekicks. I probably watched it originally because I loved Alicia Silverstone. But I could really just say any Batman film made in the 90s. That’s right, even Batman Returns. The first Tim Burton Batman was tolerable, but having seen Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, even it has lost a great deal of its original appeal.

What do you think? Did you enjoy Bio-dome, Jury Duty, In the Army Now, Son in Law, and Encino Man, but now think that Pauly Shore and his comedy is awful? You wouldn’t be alone there. If you have an opinion then share it in the comments below or on Twitter or Facebook.

  1. Never saw all the Batman sequels…probably only the first 2. Don’t know which movie I would choose for this as usually my opinion on a movie doesn’t change that much….

  2. I must admit that I still find Encino Man funny on its own dumb very-early-’90s level. My sister will even quote it from time to time. It’s utterly stupid, but Sean Astin and Brendan Fraser anchor it with their considerable likability and acting talents. Even Pauly Shore is kinda funny here, though I’ve never liked him in anything else I’ve seen him in.

    1. Ashamedly, that statement was me. I used to love Pauly Shore movies, especially Encino Man, Son-in-Law, and Bio-Dome. They were just lighthearted silly fun, but besides the fact that he kinda dropped off the map, I haven’t heard anything from Pauly Shore since he released his mockumentary Pauly Shore is Dead, wait… maybe it wasn’t fake. (Checking IMDB) Nope… He’s still alive and he’s still not funny.
