That's interesting. I grew up loving the movies of past generations but today's kids do seem to look down on older movies and tv.
What was the movie that spoofed it with the "beaver" shot? Was it a Naked Gun movie?
Loaded Weapon, with Emilio Estevez and Cathy Ireland. Funny stuff!
I never had much problem with older movies having different styles of acting. My kids sometimes like the older stuff. They did like Tron so they're okay in my book. I think they liked the new Tron better because it was more modern but they still liked the old.
