Night of the Comet was one of my go to movies when I was growing up. I haven't seen it in years though. I may have to give it a watch and see if it will be one of those "what the hell was I thinking" movies.
I actually bought it in the $5 bin based on my memories of it when I was a kid. It doesn't hold up in the slightest. I felt the same way when I recently re-watched "Solarbabies" on Netflix. It just makes me realize that I had horrible taste as a child.
it's not horrible taste....that's what was there to watch...It was what hollywood was putting out and you had no reference...music and clothes are the same way...
Don't beat yourself up you're a terrific slouch!
