Good for you. It's a beautiful movie.

For me, it was Snatch. At first, it seemed like a carbon copy of Ritchie's first movie, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. But watching it again, I really loved it.

Raiders of the lost ark. I thought it was absolutely boring the first time I watched at the drive-in. But I was with a blind date that was really, really good looking, so "movie? What movie!"

second time I watched it, I liked it.

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Missed it in the theater, got it on the hotel PPV while on my honeymoon. Ended up falling asleep halfway through it. Now I can watch it time after time and not get bored.

I've only seen Full Metal Jacket one time, but I pretty much dislike it. The first hour or so is pretty good. The rest is crap.

The Big Lebowski. The first time I saw it, I thought it was pretty stupid. Several months later, I saw it on TV and loved it.

+1 on Austin Powers , I did the same thing. Then I saw it and loved it so much I own the first 2.

Oh Brother Where Art Thou was very strange and I didn't care for it the first time but it grew on me.

The Great Escape, "watched" it (more like quickly lost attention) when I was a kid due to it being one of my dads favorite movies. Now I like it. Thinking of prison escape movies, Papillon comes to mind too.

Got you all beat.

I hated The Matrix. Seriously. I walked out during the scene where Neo puked and spent the remainder of the time in the Arcade. Then a few years later, I decide to watch it, and I'm all "whoa."

I hated that movie too, there were so many jokes recycled from Wayne's World. EG, "Sex?" "Yes, please!"

But it was such a funny movie to quote from and talk about, I liked it again.

Man, you have no idea what you missed seeing it on the big screen for the first time.

I didn't like it at first either. I got it on PPV one night when I was just dead ass tired. THe plot was deeper than I expected and I didn't understand a damn thing of it since I was so tired. Dozed off... woke up late in the movie and was totally lost.. said fuck it and went to bed. Was disappointed with it.

Next day my dad explained it to me, I was all "whoa".. ordered it again and loved it.

+1 on that one. Remember seeing the trailers and thinking, "damn, that's gonna be an awesome flick". Ran out and watched it the first weekend it was on the big screen...and couldn't believe I had wasted money on the ticket.

Rented it a couple of months after the DVD release for the in-laws, and fell in love with it. Yet another comedy that I can watch time after time after time. And pretty much have.

Kung Pow, Enter The Fist. Thought it was retarded, but then one night it was on cable and I watched it and laughed my ass off. Must have been on my period during the first viewing or something?
Link Posted: 8/22/2004 7:12:51 PM EST
Very much agree with the Thin Red Line. Some of the actors grated me but the 3rd time I saw it i just got more and more into it.

I've seen the first one a few times and the second one once.

I still don't like it that much.

Probably won't see the third.

For me it was Fight Club. First time I thought it was crap and then I watched parts of it over before I started to like it.

And also the movie Basic. First time I didn't like it but then it grew on me quite a bit.

It's that bad.

I think Full Metal Jacket still sucks. It was VERY good until Gunny got shot then I thought the rest of the movie sucked.

Everyone thinks the same thing. But the first half of that movie was 10 times better than almost any other movie out there so it's a classic.

Dittos.

My pick would probably be the Blues Brothers. I saw it when it first came out as a double feature with Caddyshack. I thought it was so-so but Caddyshack was so much better. After seeing both a few more times the movie really grew on me.

I honestly think that's one of the best movies ever made. I think DeNiro's character is pure genius! Wow!



I didn't relaly "get" Blade Runner the first time I saw it in the threatre, but have since then come to view it as an amazing movie!

You're right, it is an outstanding movie. It is visually stunning. The characters are interesting and the plot is compelling. Like I said, the ending pissed me off the first time I saw it. A week or so later I watched it again and it made sense to me.

I read the Philip K. Dick book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep well before I saw the movie, so it made sense to me.



Wasn't there an intrueging part of the story (in the Philip K. Dick story), where Deckard himself started to wonder if perhaps HE was a replicant?

I thought that might have made the movie even more interesting! (then again, maybe it would have made it TOO complicated)

Donnie Darko. Lee convinced me to watch it. At the end of the movie, I screamed at him during the credits, "What the hell did you just make me watch?!"

A week later I rented it to show to a friend so she could see how weird I thought it was. The next day I bought it.

Donnie's monologues are the best.
