Decade: Rating: List Type:
For many it’s the worst film, of the Friday the 13th series, and I also didn’t like it, just like everyone else.

But now, I like the movie a lot more.

Teen Wolf (1985)
I didn’t like Teen Wolf at first, but now I like the movie considerably more now,than when I first saw it.

People who added this item 799 Average listal rating (518 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.2
I didn’t like the movie at first, because I found it to to be too messy, bloody, and over the top.

But now, it’s one of my favourite horror films, possibly ever.

People who added this item 4267 Average listal rating (2867 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 8.1
I have to admit, I was the many that didn’t like the movie, at the time.

But now, it’s one of my favourite films from the Coen brothers.

A film that I didn’t like at the time, but now it’s a movie that I enjoy a lot more now.

People who added this item 112 Average listal rating (73 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 5.8
High Spirits (1988)
The over tone of the film, being more over the top, than scary may have played a big part, in not liking High Spirits, but now I find that it’s actually a pretty ok movie.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 128 Average listal rating (87 ratings) 4.4 IMDB Rating 4.2
Ghoulies (1984)
I was freaked out by the trailer, which creeped me out and this is probably what shaped my opinion on the film for quite some time.

But however, a recent rewatching of it changed my mind.

It’s a cheesy, silly, and juvenile movie. But that’s what makes it fun!
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 557 Average listal rating (400 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.8
Hudson Hawk (1991)
I didn’t like Hudson Hawk when I first saw it, and I think it’s because it was marketed as a action movie, but now I can’t happen but think if it was marketed as the comedy, that it really was, it would gone over a bit more.

It’s a odd, quirky, and fun movie.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 31 Average listal rating (22 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 7.2
Rad (1986)
I didn’t like the movie at first, but now I kind of like the film.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
I liked (sort of?) the movie, when I first saw it in theatres. A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film? With them time travelling? Sign me up!

Having rewatch it, I have to admit, between it’s over reliance on at the time pop culture jokes and references, it’s clunky special effects, and lack of Shredder, took things down a peg for me.

Now I think, it’s just a ok movie, at best.

Jawbreaker (1999)
It felt too much like the movie, Heathers for my liking when I first saw it, and took me three viewings, to enjoy the movie.

And now, I think it’s actually not all that bad.

Fun fact: This is the first movie, I remembered seeing one of my favourite actress, of time, Judy Greer being in a movie.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 192 Average listal rating (124 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6.1
The film being surprisingly dark for a kids film, combined with it’s crude humour, and the idea that the parents where always on the verge of some sort of break up, made me feel really uncomfortable having seen it.

But now, I enjoy the movie at more now. The special effects and Howie Mandell may have played a huge part in me liking it a bit more now.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
A change in tone, Freddy Krueger being a bit out of place, and the fact that seemingly since everyone else hated the film, I felt like I was obliged to also hate it too.

But now, it’s one of my favourite films, in the series!
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 4355 Average listal rating (2824 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.3
I was bored, the first few times, that I saw 2001: A Space Odysesy, probably it’s time length and seemingly ponderous plot had something, to due with it.

But now, I love 2001: A Space Odyssey. It’s a really great film.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
Like with practically everybody that saw it, I was in the very high opinion that not only, was this sequel highly not needed, but was also not all that great.

With a recent rewatching, I liked it a bit more, than when I first saw it.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 435 Average listal rating (275 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.9
Mannequin (1987)
It took a while, to get into liking Mannequin, but after the fourth viewing, I fairly enjoyed a lot more.

Granted, it’s still by no means a great film, but I like it more now.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 3198 Average listal rating (2110 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.4
I found it be too boring and pretentious (maybe it’s lengthy time and it’s artsy approach, had something to due with it?) when I first saw it.

But now, it’s one of my favourite vampire films, and films with Dracula in it.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 873 Average listal rating (582 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6
Speed Racer (2008)
Another movie, people didn’t care for. Myself included.

It was too hyper kinetic, over the top, and crazy.

But now I realize.... So was the original TV series.

This could be dare I say it.... One of the best live action adaptation of animated series, possibly ever.

I am very sorry, that it took me this long to figure that out.

People who added this item 6202 Average listal rating (4209 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.3
I didn’t like A Clockwork Orange, at first. Mostly, because it was insanely dark, brutal, and violent.

But in watching the film, I realized.... “That’s the whole point of the film.”

And now, I love the movie. I even had the honour of meeting Malcolm McDowell at a comic book convention, and got his autograph!

Needless to say, it’s one of my biggest highlights of my life.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 297 Average listal rating (211 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 4.9
I initially didn’t like the film, given it’s more of a dark comedic film, than the first movie, which granted had it’s dark comedic moments, the tone was consistent throughout.

However, after rewatching I had to admit. It’s actually not all that bad.

With Clancy Brown, being the movie’s main highlight.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 535 Average listal rating (339 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.4
I didn’t care for Weekend at Bernie’s at first, given that I was not only puzzled by the concept, but also thought the humour was decidedly too juvenile, for my taste.

But it’s light breeziness, the chemistry between Jonathan Silverman and Andrew McCartney, and the movie’s commitment to itself, won me over.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 129 Average listal rating (83 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5
I didn’t like Graveyard Shift, because it’s premise was hard to take seriously, but in rewatching it, I fell in love with just how bat **** bonkers, it is.

This is a perfect late night film watch.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 1002 Average listal rating (611 ratings) 4.8 IMDB Rating 4.6
Psycho (1998)
A lot of people hated this film, given it’s a remake of a brilliant movie.

So what is the point?

Seeing it again, I appreciate it for it’s sure nerve, it’s well made, and an experiment.

Can one remake a classic film, and update it and have it still be fresh?

The answer is.... Yes.

The remake is oddly effective, and haunting.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 506 Average listal rating (339 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.8
I didn’t care at first for the film, mainly because even though it’s a comedy....

It’s a decidedly bleak, ugly, and mean spirited one.

Rewatching, I realize now. That was the whole point.

One that I missed out on.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 747 Average listal rating (501 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.9
Creepshow (1982)
I didn’t always love Creepshow. With my first time seeing it, it freaked me out.

The final segment and the abundance of insects, many have been it’s breaking point for me.

But now I love this crazy, scary, movie.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
For some this was the worst film in the series (What? A Halloween movie? With no Michael Myers?), and convoluted plot that makes no scene.

But in retrospective, that’s what made it great.

It’s a movie that dared to be different. I also didn’t like the movie at first.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 3485 Average listal rating (2330 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.5
The Village (2004)
I thought it was a okay movie, a slow burn of a movie.

But now, I find it to beautifully and visually stunning, and hauntingly effective.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 1096 Average listal rating (762 ratings) 3.8 IMDB Rating 4.1
As a fan of the video game, I was not happy of how it was made into a movie.

Now? It’s not great, but it’s actually pretty fun.

And very strange. Which makes it even more, of a reason to watch it.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 1877 Average listal rating (1286 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6.2
Waterworld (1995)
Long, plotting, and overdone, it’s a film, that requires multiple viewings to fully enjoy.

Now? I love how risky, go for broke, and bombastic Waterworld is.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 2150 Average listal rating (1383 ratings) 4.8 IMDB Rating 5.1
Scooby-Doo (2002)
Same reason as Speed Racer. Now, I actually find Scooby Doo, to be actually not all that bad!

And kudos goes to Matthew Lillard, for honouring the spirit of role that Casey Kasem made famous.

I now can’t imagine anyone else than Lillard or Kasem as the voice of Shaggy.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 223 Average listal rating (141 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 5.9
One of the most controversial films ever. When I first saw the movie, I thought it was cheaply, cheesy, and revolting.

But now? I freaking love how wonderfully subversive, Silent Night, Deadly Night is.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 524 Average listal rating (283 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.3
It’s a beautiful animated film, but one of the most depressing movies, that I remember seeing.

And now I love The Last Unicorn, more than I did the first time I saw it.

People who added this item 1335 Average listal rating (814 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 8.1
Terrifying and visually stunning, I ended up getting into the music of Pink Floyd years later.

And that’s when I gave it another chance.

Not everyone is going to love this first film, and it was a while before I end up liking Pink Floyd: The Wall.

Valentine (2001)
Intentionally, I didn’t like the film, but now I think it’s pretty ok.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:

I didn’t care for it, at but having rewatched the film.....

It’s actually not that bad of a movie.

Creepshow 2 (1987)
I didn’t like Creepshow 2, when I first saw it, but now I kind of like it.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 128 Average listal rating (70 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 5.6
It’s cute, and cuddly and decidedly overly toy centric.

But eventually I warmed up to it.

The film is pretty overall harmless, if anything else.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
Not neatly as great as the first movie, but it’s decent enough.

Not unlike the first movie, it took another viewing to get into it.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 893 Average listal rating (559 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 5.7
A fairly average movie, that is decidedly more scarier than when I first saw it.

Having seen only a few Stephen King adaptations, I had very little to compare it to.

But now it’s not that bad of a movie, actually.

C.H.U.D. (1984)
A movie that over a period of time, garnered a cult following, however credits hated it.

However, it’s better than it lets itself out to be.

And I didn’t know it at the time, but it was very first introduction to Daniel Stern and John Goodman.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 1761 Average listal rating (1147 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.7
It’s silly, juvenile, and some of the humour hasn’t aged well, and I didn’t care for Police Academy originally.

But now it’s not that bad, all things considered.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 557 Average listal rating (308 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 6.9
It’s odd movie to be sure, and Ken Russell films are not for everyone.

But it’s a movie, that is definitely one to watch.

It took me a while to get into, but however it has an interesting premise, great performances and is visually something else all together.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
I wasn’t a big Cheech and Chong at first but over time, I ended enjoying their movies a bit more.

That being said The Corsican Brothers, is still a pretty ok movie but not great.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 540 Average listal rating (375 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.5
Flash Gordon (1980)
When I first saw Flash Gordon, it wasn’t exactly one of my favourite movies.

But now, it’s actually a pretty decent movie.

With a great soundtrack by Queen.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 120 Average listal rating (80 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.3
While it’s by no means great, it’s still miles a way better than Smokey and the Bandit III.

Now that’s a bad movie.

Blade Runner (1982)
You that person who didn’t like Blade Runner when they first saw it?

I am sorry, but I was one of those people.

It was after three viewings, that I totally ended up loving Blade Runner.

Sorry everyone.

Annie (1982)
Another musical movie, I didn’t like at first. I guess I it to be too sugary, and cute for my taste.

It’s now a film, that I enjoy more with each viewing.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 146 Average listal rating (100 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 5.3
Xanadu (1980)
Is it one of the worst musical movies ever? No. That honour still goes to Staying Alive and The Pirate Movie.

If anything it’s at least for me, a guilty pleasure movie.

It just took a few viewings, to get to that point.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 2102 Average listal rating (1415 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5
As with it’s sequel Evil Dead II, I found The Evil Dead to be a bit much and gruesome when I first saw them.

But now? They are my favourite horror films of all time.

The Exorcist (1973)
I heard so many great things about The Exorcist, that I figured that I must see this movie.

But found it too unsettling. So I watched it again.

But still didn’t like it. The third time, I liked the movie a bit more.

Now I really like The Exorcist.
