Day 14- A film that you used to love but now hate

Nothing so extreme as going from love to hate, but I did used to love Blade Runner, and after a viewing on the big screen, I realized I just really didn't really need to see it again after that. It's not hate or even dislike, because I still like the movie. I was just rather... well, done with it. Satisfied. Complete. Over. Finished. Whatever. (Except for the ending with Rutger Hauer and Harrison Ford. I don't think I'll tire of their cat and mouse chase/fight through that old building.) I've had no desire to see it again since. I really can't explain it, or why seeing it on the big screen just sort of ended it, but well, there you have it.

  1. Interesting. I don't think it's revealing anything you don't already know that Blade Runner is my favourite film, and I'm not sure I'll ever tire of it. However, I do recognise exactly the feeling you describe, that sense that you don't need to see something again. I've had it with other films - it's more or less the feeling I have with Batman, and it's true of a few others. This one...well, not yet. :-D

  2. Hee, nope, I knew that. And I doubt you'll ever feel this way about Blade Runner! I still surprises me sometimes, but that's how it went. Now, the family did end up watching it a few months back, and I watched the whole thing and had no problems, but I still wouldn't seek it out on my own.
