I was a big fan of AVATAR last December and enjoyed INCEPTION a few weeks ago, but I find this sort of movie is like the popcorn I eat with it.
My enjoyment is temporary. A few weeks or months later, there is little resonance, just some respect for the techniques or perhaps for the initial thrills. At year's end, I remember the films about people-ones like FROZEN RIVER, THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES, WINTER'S BONE, THE SQUARE, THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT.
Now I am not saying that big busy movies can't be about real people. But they rarely are.
What movie wowed you when you saw it and then faded? Or am I the only fickle one?
