What are these aging things you speak of… wait.. don’t tell me. Then I’ll start to notice them and not enjoy the movie. There are certain movies that do show their age, just by the environment they were shot in. The dialogue, the style, the film, the music can all attribute to these things… and that’s unfortunate. Other’s despite that hold up well. Maybe it’s me. I still think the original War of the Worlds holds up great. It might be my nostalgic feelings towards it.

Seriously though, I understand. If you watch things enough over time, it’s inevitable. I was watching Alien again (for the eleven gajillion time) last night with the director’s version. Before the movie starts Ridley Scott talks to audience of the ‘why’ for a director’s cut. It’s precisely his own perspective that changed over time. Overall he’s happy with what he did, but even as he watches it 25 years later, he see’s nuances of change that he wanted to change.
