"Lost World" looks worse and worse to me over the years, but when it's good, it's still very good, IMO.Hook and The Lost World are much worse movies than 1941 for me. The same for Always but at least Always is just OK while Hook and especially The Lost World just aren't very good (though TLW does have that great sequence with the T-Rex and the trailer).
I agree 100% on your perception of "Hook". I was 24 when it hit, so young but not a kid.To be fair to those movies, Hook is a movie that I think that people love if they saw it as a child and The Lost World has dinosaurs eating people.
I’m 57 and I LOVE The Goonies!BTW, I think "Goonies" is another one with a bit of a generational divide. I was 18 summer of 1985 and expected a great adventure movie.
Instead, I got Indiana Jones for Pre-teens.
"Goonies" is still reasonably enjoyable, but it disappointed me 35 years ago and still seems far inferior to classics like "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
But my younger friends - aka those late 70s birthdays - all adore it!
Yeah, Jurassic Park 2 is pretty bad. Like you, I have never seen Hook. It's reputation for being bad has kept me from investing any money or time in viewing the film. It's on Disney+, though, so I have been tempted to check it out. I just haven't felt like investing the time in it yet.I haven’t seen Hook or Jurassic Park 2, so maybe my comment about 1941 being his low point is inaccurate.
I didn't say only people now in their 30s/40s like it - and I think it's a mostly entertaining movie though parts of it drive me nuts.I’m 57 and I LOVE The Goonies!
