The author of the Anomalous Material article pinpointed 'Fight Club' as a film that lost his love and while he provides a totally sound argument for the deflation of their relationship, that's one film that still gets me every time. The one that lost its luster for me is a childhood favorite, or more like an obsession, 'Charlie's Angels.'
I was 14 years old when that one hit the big screen and I ate up every second of it. Forget the fact that the film was based on an iconic TV show; to me it was all about Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu; they were the most kick-ass actresses out there. Not only did I watch the movie over and over, but I owned the soundtrack and that super cool Nokia cell phone they oh-so-subtly highlighted throughout the film. I was hooked.
But of course there came a point when I watched the film that first put McG in the spotlight one too many times and everything started to seem, well, ridiculous. I grew increasingly frustrated with the fact that not one stunt in the film had a hint of realism, and weary of the nonsensical plot and silly dialogue. At this point, the only excuse I can come up with was that I fell for this one for the sheer entertainment value. There's no denying it was fun at the time, but the time has passed and the effect has certainly warn off.
I told you mine, now you tell me yours. What movie did you fall out of love with?
