Gravity. It's a well acted and well crafted film that is truly meant for the IMAX 3D experience, but unfortunately, it's the only way to see it for the full effect
Great acting, long takes, beautiful cinematography, and awesome facial expressions from Leo.
Tried rewatching it the other day. Couldn't figure out those dream sequences.
I thought Schindler's List was an amazing movie with a powerful story, but I saw it once and I don't ever want to see it again.
*The Hateful Eight*
I think that's a great movie that's only meant to be experienced one time. Knowledge of the twists and turns makes the runtime more difficult to sit through, as that's a movie all about setup and tension.
Godzilla 2014. The tension leading to finally seeing the awesome beast's incredible size blew me away, especially the skydiving scene. The CG, at least in my opinion, of Godzilla astonished me, and hearing his bellowing roar in theaters made my heart drop.
Unfortunately, the movie contains a lot of bullshit that I just can't be asked to care about the second time around, especially when not viewed in a theater setting.
James Cameron's Avatar is the perfect example of this. I was blown away after seeing it in 3D for the first time. Every viewing since has been worse and worse.
I feel like I wouldn't enjoy Requiem for a Dream on a second or third viewing. I think the reason I liked it the first time was just that it was a huge shock - I had never seen anything like it before or since. Obviously on a second viewing this quality would be lost and I would likely just be left with a dull film with no truly great scenes except for maybe Ellen Burstyn's dramatic monologue.
I have never rewatched it and I likely never will.
Deadpool. Most of the jokes didn't work for me the second time.
Cube. Loved it the first time, didn't do anything for me the second.
Grave of the Fireflies. I can't bring myself to watch it a second time, despite how I loved it, and I honestly don't really want to. Knowing what happens at the end would just make it difficult to enjoy the movie.
Anything pretty, but lacking in deeper content and plot. Avatar, Sucker Punch, The Lone Ranger, etc.
Avengers, seeing it in theaters was so exciting, it was something i had been looking forward to for a while, since then we've gotten a lot of avengers and the novelty of seeing these characters on the screen has definitely worn, I don't think it's bad or anything, i just can't like it for the same reasons i used to
A Serbian Film.
Don't need to feel that dirty about the exploitation the entertainment business does around the world and then you slap on the snuff stuff.
It was entertaining in theaters, but so forgettable. The original can be rewatched, this one I would skip every time if I ran across it on TV.
