I saw the movie On Golden Pond in 1981 when it was a new movie. At the time I was in my early thirties and thought it was just okay. However, when I saw it again on TV tonight I thought it was one of the best movies I have ever seen.
It is interesting how your stage of life affects your perception of a movie. I have found a similar situation when I reread a book that I read decades ago.
Ironically, during Covid, my son and I watch Stallone’s Over the Top, and had you asked me about it before we watched, I would have said it was just a cheesy 80’s movie.
But watching now, it really was well made with good acting.
