Post Re: Movies You've Had a Major Change of Heart On
Recently watched The Three Musketeers and The Four Musketeers, having loved them years ago (Michael York, Christopher Lee, Charlton Heston, Raquel Welch, Faye Dunaway, Oliver Reed, Richard Chamberlin, Geraldine Chaplain, Joss Ackland. et al). I remembered them fondly as escapist fun, with great action, humor and swashbuckling escapades featuring a stellar cast.

Rewatching them was painful. Choppy editing, uneven performances, farcical slapstick. Awkward, awkward movies. The only redeeming quality was Oliver Reed's performance. Definitely films that did not age well. A shame, really. I thought I was in for a great evening of fun. What a disappointment.

Surely they're still better than the more recent adaptations? :|

Well, that's not really glowing endorsement.
