How soon are films/music forgotten?

I think films/music have a certain shelf-life before they go out of popularity completely because as times change, people change as well.

In my experience, an average film has about 10 good years before no one but the [italic]older[/italic] (the generation that liked the film aged) likes it.

I don't like all films from the 1990's save for the Titanic which was released at the very end of the decade.

Thoughts?

"I don't like all films from the 1990's"

Which decade produced only films which you do love?

R3, the 2000-2013.

I have no idea why people are being so negative on this thread.

Yeah, The Wizard of Oz is certainly forgotten. And The Sound of Music, too. Oh, hell, I don't even have the energy. TOOL!!!!!!!

I don't think OP is a tool. Tools have a use.

OP, I just performed in a concert of Mozart's 39th symphony in E-flat and the "Vesperae solemnes de confessore " by him, we had a good crowd and a standing O, didn't seem like those pieces of music had been forgotten.

r9, OP probably thinks Mozart's music dates from 1984.

You're thinking of pop music and "pop" (fluffy) movies, OP. They have fast turnover and unfortunately dominate the market. That's apparently why movies and music seem fast-forgotten to you. Hopefully you'll understand this better when you turn about 14.
