Movies That Have Not Stood the Test of Time

Movies that were good at one point but now aren't so great anymore.

The Top TenXW

1The Blair Witch Project

The reason it was a hit when it was release was because it was marketed very well they made people believe it was all true, the reason it sucks now is because it just looks like crap, over the top acting and looks like it was filmed in someones backyard. - egnomac

While it may have been a hit when it was released it hasn't held up in recent years. - egnomac

Yeah I agree. It seemed scary at first, but now it's just really cheesy and dumb.

Special effects were revolutionary. Were. When you really break down the story and characters Tron is a pretty average flick.

Not that great of a movie its no wonder so many people have forgotten about it.

3Red Dawn (1984)

This movie is just so violent. lots of people get shot and blown up, there's blood everywhere, and it's all just not fun. like, there's this one scene where Alex (before he became Robocop) gets gunned down a lot and it's really grim, it's really nasty. I mean how's that entertaining? How can I watch a man being shot multiple times? But if you people love this movie, then power to ya. I don't mind if you do. enjoy what you enjoy.

While it was good at it's time. now it's just cheesy and corny. especially the effects on ED-209 (you can tell they're stop motion effects).

5Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
6The Sword in the Stone

Disney's weakest movie the film relies too much on one joke after the other and Merlin comes off as a complete bumbler.

72001: A Space Odyssey

It seemed visually interesting when it came out, now everyone hates it because it's so slow paced.

8American Beauty
9Short Circuit

I don't think anyone remembers this movie.

10Billy Madison

This movie was never even good to start with!

The Contenders

11Howard the Duck

How did anyone like this film when it first came out? I thought it was a disaster of a movie! Right down from bear naked duck breasts and an almost sex scene with a woman and a duck, to it being marketed for kids! What kind of meth was George Lucas smoking during the production of this Turkey?!

Can you believe it took six actors to play Howard? Howard still looks unconvincing to this day.

12How Green Was My Valley

Wow, how did this beat "Citizen Kane" for Best Picture? No words... No words. -

13The Evil Dead (1981)

Aged really badly, boring with no gore.

14Clash of the Titans (1981)
15The Matrix

A huge hit that seems weak in retrospect.


Even Roger Ebert hated this movie.

18No Holds Barred
19The Heavenly Kid

It looks more like a copy of gremlins. maybe that's why it didn't hold up to today.
