Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
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: Stanley Kubrick
Growing the Beard: His films went from "Excellent" to "All-time classics" around the time he grew his beard.
Short-Lived Big Impact: He only made thirteen films from 1953 to 1999, yet most of those films are regarded as some of the best ever made.
Visual Effects of Awesome: 2001: A Space Odyssey still looks unbelievable after nearly forty-five years. Particularly amazing as it was made before the Moon landing.
