I Saw That Years Ago

Martyn Darkly & Gentleman Joe

Ever picked up a film you haven't seen for a while and thought that it was an under-appreciated classic? Then, after taking it home and watching it once more, you remember what it was really like and how your memory has tricked you into buying another terrible movie.

I Saw That Years Ago sets out to watch those films that we think are brilliant but which we haven't seen for a little too long to be sure.
