I rarely ever see posts that are sort of "contradiction positive" - posts where someone says "I was wrong about that until I read your post on __________" for example .............what instead you get way more is more "affirmation positive" posts which is just sort of more "I loved ________ too!"
So what's something in general you were like "Damn, looking back on it, I was so wrong on that!" - it can be on any topic - not just movies........food.......politics.........sports.........current events...........anything.
For me, I was totally wrong on womens soccer. I didn't post about it or anything but I didn't give a sh it up until the last 3 games and ended up kind of under its spell and if you told me that before that I would have said "Nah, don't care".................. Now I'm thinking maybe I should pay more attention to the Tour de France
There are probably well over a hundred movies I've seen that I've changed my mind about on some level. I got seriously into film really, really young and so a lot of the stuff I first saw as a teenager I've significantly reevaluated. And other times my perspective on something just changes, like realizing I didn't give something enough credit or I liked what a director was doing more on reflection, or, on the other hand, overlooked something stupid that now bothers me since its been brought to my attention.
For food, yeah, Wendy's gave my ass food poisoning the last two times I've eaten there, so I'm going to say I no longer find it as endlessly tasty as I used to.
I'm with Redhawk, in that a lot of movies I liked when I was younger make me weep for my poor childhood. Although just as many movies I latched onto (The Maltese Falcon, The Conversation) are legitimately great.
I do remember calling George Miller a hack who had never directed a good movie back when Fury Road was getting buzz. The only Mad Max film I had seen was the first one (which I rewatched in preparation for FR, and yeah it's kinda crap), and I was fervent in my Miller hatred.
Then I watched MM 2 and 3 and both were actually pretty great, and then Fury Road blew me away to the point that I felt it necessary to write an apology saying that y'all were right and I was wrong.
"I wanted to be a wife so that I could have been her real mother. I wanted to be a boy so that she could be in love with me. I wanted her to be my full sister instead of my half sister. I wanted her to be a slave so that I could set her free and make her rich."
Oh honey, trust me when I tell you that I'd love to be wrong... but sadly as a movie star surrounded by yes men, it's just not permitted... Even my assistant is agreeing with me... incidentally, my aim has improved greatly by throwing overarm versus underarm... I know I'm right about this.

I do recall that one time when you thought you were wrong for ruining that young actors marriage but then later decided that was the right thing to do.........so technically at first you were wrong about thinking you were wrong.
Louis B. Mayer once told me if loving you was wrong he didn't care what insurance policy you had taken out on him.
I remember at least 3 police reports I helped fill out where we said several witnesses had identified you wrongly and of course there was that National Enquirer headline "MsMovieStar rubs movie hunk the wrong way" which we then sued them for had them re-tract and change it to "MsMovieStar rubs movie hunk the RIGHT way"
