Jeez, by saying “Now and Then” wasn’t one of my favorites I get criticized for giving LLG “shade”? There are masterpieces by other great directors that I wouldn’t put on my list either. I’m a big fan of LLG for what it’s worth.

You actually said Now and Then was “not on any list of favorites,” which is untrue because it’s one of my favorite movies and one of Ashley’s. 

The tone of the ask–“fun movie at the time, but not on any list of favorites”–reads as fairly dismissive. Even if you weren’t intending to be dismissive or critical, that’s how it came across. Especially since the film was directed twenty-plus years ago and is actually fairly beloved by a certain set of millennials.
