It's a classic, perhaps your idea of good is Daddys Home 2?

Gone for it, thanks, may as well use that no rush credit on something.

Kindle edition is always this price

They clearly jack up the price for a couple of days a month to trick you into thinking it's a sale.

I don't get the hype either despite being a fan of John Carpenter and Kurt Russell.

Bizarrely the link you have shared actually suggests that it has not always been this price.

So....

39. Pretty sure I saw this at the cinema. Remember feeling distinctly underwhelmed, it’s hardly a classic
Great film!!!

Not sure you would have got in at the age of 7 or 8. But I do agree, I was 15 when it came out and didn't think much of it so not necessarily an age thing.

It's nothing to do with age & everything to do with subjectivity. I went to see this at the cinema and thought it was absolute guff - despite being a huge Carpenter fan.

Actually age plays a massive part in your perspective of a film. Seeing something upon its original release can dramatically effect your opinion and memories of it. The snowflake generation of today basically think James Bond should be put on a shelf and left to rot. This is also true in other forms of entertainment. Only recently i read someone on HDUK stating how crappy NES games are, turns out they were 22 years old. Sure by todays standards they are poor, but for me and many other people they are absolute gems and full of nostaligia. My question regarding the members age was a genuine enquiry and i understand this film is not for everyone. Thats the joys of being individuals right?

Right :-)
Kurt Russell still looks the same.

Oh right
Loved this movie but it would have been better to have a 'Making of' documentary on screen instead of a written piece!

I loved this movie as a kid! Watched it recently with my own kids and they enjoyed it as well!

If you consider it as a film, you can pull it to pieces really. But its good old fashioned entertainment: action, comedy, romance, a few scares- the kind of movie you can enjoy as a family.
