-Unbreakable. Took over a year to warm up to it.
-Vertigo. Hated first time I saw it; now in top ten.
-Apocalypse Now. Weird, baffling, saw it when young--Ni wasn't developed at that point.
-The Bourne Trilogy. Meh, at first. But Ultimatum improved the series entire.
-2001: A Space Odyssey. B-O-R-I-N-G. Came to enjoy. Good Ni food.
I went looking through my previous posts to find this thread just so I could mention Apocalypse Now. Good call, sir.
I don't recall liking it the first time I saw it years ago, but now I would say it's probably the best war movie I've ever seen, especially of the Vietnam era. It almost has a film noir presence to it. They don't make movies of this caliber anymore.
When I was a child, my older sister discovered The Rocky Horror Picture & excitedly informed me that I would LOVE "The Time Warp". She was like, "This totally reminds me of you. Everything about this is YOU!". But I was an ornery, stubborn child and when people tried to get me to like something, I'd resist as a knee-jerk reaction. I was like, "NO, I will NOT like it!" .
So I stubbornly insisted on not liking The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but once I got a bit older & let go of my bias, I did like it. I wouldn't say I love it now, but my sister was entirely right about The Time Warp - it is right up my alley.
