Question of the Day

TCM was running a bunch of epic movies yesterday like Dr. Zhivago and Ben-Hur. Some films like those stand the test of time, and some don’t. So in a tangent of the QotD last week…

What movie did you love when you first saw it has now faded into the “enh” category?

I watched Gandhi again last week. I remember being extremely impressed with it when I first saw it, but now it just comes across as episodic and preachy, even if Ben Kingsley (and Athol Fugard in a cameo) were great.
