    Default Movies/books you related to once, but no more?

    Thought this would be an interesting idea for a thread.

    Movies and books that you once identified with, but find no longer connect with you on the same level they once did.

    When I was 18, I watched Othello (lawrence fishburne's one), and I still remember how devastated I was at the end. I mean, I'm talking the kind of tears that needed to be consoled by a friend, who was also crying and needing to be consoled.

    I wept buckets to that tale. I felt such pity for both othello and Desdemona.

    However I watched the same film last night, hoping for the same effect, only to find I had no pity for Othello anymore. I only cried for Desdemona. For Othello, although I didn't feel the same level of hate for him, as I do for Iago, I still felt contempt for his weakness.

    For allowing his jealousy and paranoia to consume him without much evidence to go on. Stupid stupid man.

    I guess when you have been at the end of that kind of manic jealousy and paranoia yourself, it's harder to feel pity anymore.

    It just seemed I have grown beyond that tale.


    Same as with Mulan. As a muslim female, once Mulan spoke to me on many levels. Of being a woman with little to no rights, and the need to become a man to change her destiny.

    However now that I am no longer constrained, although I still love the tale, it does not move me the way it once did.


    What movies, tales have you moved beyond?

    Not really on the same level, but I used to love What About Bob? when I was a child. I don't love it so much anymore.

    Is there any reason it spoke to you more as a child than now?

    I don't know the tale.

    Couple more I remembered.


    The prince of egypt and any story about moses used to move me to tears at times, speaking to the idealistic, let my people go, side of me. I'm alot less idealistic than I use to be, plus I am no longer religious, so it doesn't speak to me the same way.


    Also, love stories. I love a good sad film, tragic and tearful and people have recommended I watch the notebook, but I don't watch romance films, at least not ones that are purely romance.

    That stupid happily ever after part that they all have, just twist my gut up, in anger at how false they are lol.
