    I loved Ferris Bueller's Day Off, when I saw it as a kid.

    But I saw it again in recent years, and I think Ferris is an asshole and borderline sociopath. icon_lol.gif

    Pulp Fiction. I've seen it once and then again for a second time the other day and I still don't get the facination.

    Not a movie, but True Blood bores me on its second viewing. It's a series best marathoned through so that you don't have time to reflect on its plot (and plot holes).

    A movie I enjoyed the first time (when I was younger) and don't like anymore is Jurassic Park III. The comedic moments are stupid and inappropriate for the film's overall attempt at atmosphere.

    I hope you're not talking about season one. That has great replay value.

    From my childhood.... 'Titanic.'

    The thing about Tarantino is his movies are just fun....not breaking any new ground....in fact they just copy other genres and pay homage to them.

    So I agree he is overrated overall....

    But....the acting is generally very good, stories/storytelling is overall very good too. His new movie I just saw tonight I thought was really fun. Amazing talent he has of long parts of dialogue with a lot of tension and release....which is not easy to keep people engaged with a lot of subtitles and dialogue.

    They made for a certain demographic, and I think he succeeds well with what he is trying to do.



    but back to topic

    TRON is a movie I liked when I was little then tried to watch again and hated it. I understand the effects don't really stand the test of time, but I found the story completely slow and unengaging.

    I still love it, it's funny!

    but you're also right, if he were in my school I think I would have hated his guts, and I certainly understand the characters in the movie who do icon_lol.gif

    I liked Star Wars when I was a child. It doesn't hold anything like the fascination for me now.

    I have only seen season one, so that's the one I'm talking about. The novelty of vampires in rural Louisiana wears thin. It doesn't help that my favorite character doesn't live to see the next season.

    kRakaJak saidwhat about the movies that disappointed you the first time but ya watch em a second time?


    The first Resident Evil film seemed better the second time I saw it. The first time around I was probably too focused on how contrary it was to the mood and plots of the games (which have pretty stupid plots to begin with, but at least have some atmospheric music).

    See, that's what the fast forward and pause buttons are for, who gives a f*k about plot with him on the screen!

    I swear I watched 30 minutes of that movie on cable one day before I realized that I was watching it on HBO Latino. There is, to put it mildly, an absence of meaningful dialogue.

    i heard from a friend recently that he read that Ferris Beuller's Day Off may have been intended to be akin to Fight Club, in that Ferris may be viewed as an imaginary part of the other character- the guy he wishes he could be; everything he's not... popular, charismatic, good looking, daring, etc. or, actually, that other kid- the one with the car- could be the imaginary one.... a part of Ferris' personality that he doesn't like so he split off... since in the movie you never ever see any of his family and everyone ignores him.

    That was a television series from Minneapolis, not just one movie. They were intended to be bad movies with commentary.

    I'd say "Fight Club", but I hated it the first time.

    Any of the Star Trek movies with the exception of the second, the Wrath of Khan. That one I could watch over and over. It doesn't hurt that Ricardo Montalban had a rockin chest even if it was fake.
