    People goin' to see the same film over and over again. Then convince themselves that the films are brilliant, so then do it again and again.

    No lies I’ve left some better films off because I’ve maybe only seen them once or I value other films’ watchability. Like The Mask over Pulp Fiction. For some, like Mad Max & Blade Runner, I’ve only seen them once but they made a great impression on me.

    Looking through made me realise how little I’ve seen seen like, so many I’ve been meaning to watch for ages.
     
  4. I love it but I do wonder if it would get made today. Can't remember it being massively popular at the time apart from in my group of mates.

    I usually find IMDB is a good guide as to how good a film is apart from it is heavily weighted towards Marvel type films. I think it is because franchises encourage fan boy behaviour.

    I struggled for the last 3 or 4 years, I don't think it's that, I saw few of my top films at the cinema. I watched them at home, often years later.
