Not out of bounds, just requiring a deliberate effort to go track down and carve out time for, and seldom having a clear reason to make that effort. I’ve got nothing against them, but there always seem to be higher priorities for how to spend free time. So I’ve seen a scattering of old movies (including Casablanca and Caine Mutiny), but haven’t gotten around to plenty more. This thread was actually making me think I should check out Die Hard, before some people got all huffy about it.
I watch a couple movies a month on average, almost all of which are with my kids and/or wife, not an audience conducive to cheesy old machismo-fests. When I have free time by myself, I’m more likely to turn to a game of some sort.
That would explain a lot, come to think of it.
