The problem with lists
I love lists. When I started this blog over 4 years ago, I thought it would be fun to come up with a Top 100 list so I did.
My Top 100 movie list is more accurate than my book list because I rewatch favorite movies all the time. The initial list took some time, but I feel pretty good about it. Every month or so I try to review a favorite movie and before I do I watch it again and adjust how high on the list it should be. In the 3 or so years I’ve been doing this, two movies after another viewing, didn’t make the cut. This week I asked Jason if he wanted to watch #21 with me and he said yes, so over two nights we watched it. And spent most of the time making fun of it. I couldn’t believe it. It just did not age well. Alien was filmed in 1979 and it shows. My memories did not match the movie at all. I was so disappointed and will have to take it off my list.
So, has this happened to you? Do you remember loving a book or a movie or a song and then when you read/watch. hear it again it’s terrible?
