(Kind of spun out from another recent thread)

What movies did you like when they came out, but when you watched them years later, thought they pretty much sucked:

For me - the top great movie that now sucks would be:
Dune


When it came out (mid 80s) I thought it was GREAT!
I couldn't get enough of it and watched it every chance I could when it came on cable TV.

I think part of what I liked about it was Sting, Kyle MacLauchlin, and David Lynch (I was/am a Twin Peaks fan)

A few years back, I dialed it up again, and thought "This Sucks!" I couldn't tell you exactly why, but it just lost all of it's appeal.
... cheezy, campy .. not sure, I'd have to suffer through it again to decide


What movies used to be favorites of yours?
