The passage of time has dimmed its greatness while at the same time imbuing it with a nostalgic element that allows it to work today.
Not a bad movie but the passage of time hasn’t been kind to it. The things that made it popular upon its release either don’t apply or don’t work for a 2018 audience.
Despite not aging well, "The Graduate" remain worth seeing primarily for Anne Bancroft’s performance but also as a time capsule looking at a lifestyle that would soon disappear.
Some movies are such singular achievements that they deserve to be seen at least once by everyone who considers himself or herself to be a lover of film.
"Gringo" is messy and at times incoherent, filled with pointless subplots and confounding “twists.”

Canny enough to go full-throttle with the absurd and not bother trying to do much with its meager dramatic and/or sentimental elements.
A family film whose infectious, crowd-pleasing song-and-dance numbers justify a 105-minute running length when the pedestrian story can’t.
Although hewing close to the established facts, the movie amps up the sentimental content for maximum effect.
"Goon: Last of the Enforcers" is a waste of time, money, talent, and the goodwill of viewers who appreciated the earlier picture.
Every aspect of the production was selected with the goal of keeping the audience in a state of escalating suspense.
