->''"At a certain point, with age, we lose our grip on which ideas are cyclical and which ideas are perpetual and which ideas have died out. Madonna is just mimicking modes of edginess that worked for her in the past--that were new and important in the past--but what was once progressive nearly always becomes regressive. Because we learn so much all the time. The racial exploitation of ''Sex''-era Madonna was provocative once; [[TheManIsStickingItToTheMan now it's just exploitation.]] So when do we cut our idols loose? When does the Queen of Reinvention run out of raw materials and turn into the, um, Lesser Duchess of Recycling?"''

->"If you take a film like ''Film/ThePrincessBride'', which had moderate success in theatres, but [[VindicatedByHistory went on to eventually become a famous part of popular culture]], ''Insurrection'' is the flipside of the coin, hitting theaters hard, but then falling flat on its face. While it is now critically mixed, at the time, a substantial number said that it broke the [[StarTrekMovieCurse odd-numbered rule]]. I know it sounds unbelievable, but that's because it's a movie that doesn't stand the test of time."

->''"What a lot of people don't realize or don't remember--or choose ''not'' to remember--is that when people saw ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' for the first time in theaters...they loved it.\\\
They LOVED it. When YOU saw it in theaters, '''''YOU''''' loved it! And maybe you don't remember that. For the most part, everyone hates it now; you, everyone looks back on those prequels like, "''ooohh, those things were dogshit, Jar-Jar Binks sucked."'' Everyone hates it. ''Now'', everyone talks about George Lucas like [[ScapegoatCreator he's a fuckin' idiot]], he "[[RuinedFOREVER ruined]]" ''Star Wars'', y'know, {{blah blah blah}}.\\\
'''''NO.''''' Back in the day, when ''Phantom Menace'' came out. [[OneHundredPercentAdorationRating EVERYONE. LOVED. THE PHANTOM MENACE.]] ''Critics.'' Movie critics, Creator/RogerEbert, all the major critics HIGHLY REVIEWED ''The Phantom Menace''. People walked outta there COMPLETELY SATISFIED with ''The Phantom Menace''.

->''"There were [[ClothesMakeTheLegend his omnipresent black clothes and ponytail]], constants that became more comical with each film. The way his acting [[DulLSurprise never got any better]]. The stupid way he would [[GangstaStyle hold his pistol sideways]] all the time. The fact that [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy no one ever shot him from a distance]], but invariably walked up to him so that he could do [[SignatureMove that gun flipping move]] he trotted out every movie. The silly way [[ClintSquint he squinched his face]] when he was supposed to be pissed off. The lack of an adversary who could even marginally challenge [[PlotArmor the omnipotent Seagal]], which eventually sort of lowered the suspense level. Even Seagalís trademark fighting move, quickly grabbing and snapping an opponentís arm, became farcical the forty or fiftieth time you saw it."''

->''"''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' received perfect scores and critical acclaim when it was released in 2001, selling millions of copies and single-handedly raising the bar for big action titles... It was a genuine smash hit. But just a few years later, the critics hated it. It went from being called a masterpiece to masturbatory. In some cases, the same people whoíd initially given it perfect scores were now mocking it openly, as if it had somehow changed for the worse. It hadnít, of course, but this didnít stop them from changing their minds. Calling it convoluted, pretentious, and full of 'metababble', they joined the fans in [[TorchesAndPitchforks demanding answers, customer satisfaction, and justice]] from series creator Creator/HideoKojima."''
