These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: My Bloody Valentine
The 1981 film:
Designated Hero: TJ; he's a flacky jerk who stalks his ex-girlfriend Sarah and who doesn't care that she's moved on to Axel.
Not to mention the original ending, where the killer chops off his arm in order to escape.
One of the hearts being eaten by wild dogs.
Vindicated by History: While largely ignored when it first came out as just another slasher film, the film is generally considered these days to be one of the best slasher films of the early eighties post-Halloween (1978) era.
Snarky as it may sound to say that "they were so good they killed their own genre", Loveless did undoubtedly cause reviewers to shift to formenting a Hype Backlash against the previously-championed Scene That Celebrates Itself (poor Slowdive even lampshaded the critical pasting they knew they were about to receive by naming an EP Holding Our Breath), and promote Grunge and Britpop instead. There is no denying that Loveless was (and is) a hard act to follow however, both for the band and the scene alike.
A very visible trend among music reviewers, both amateur and professional, is to instantly give any new shoegaze album a low grade simply for "trying to be My Bloody Valentine". Make of that what you will.
Epic Riff: Again, everything they recorded starting in 1988.
