Misplaced

A few years back- Oh, I'd say four or five- this film came out and I read the review and thought, "yeah, I'd like to see that."

So finally I get round to renting it. I put the disc in the machine and up it comes on screen and there, as dewy as the first rose of summer, is Winona Ryder and it hits me like- dood- this film is twenty years old if it's a day.

So how did this happen? How did that memory of reading the review (it's so fresh I can smell the newsprint) manage to get itself filed under "recent"?
