    Default Movies that you hated at first viewing but then began to love

    The opposite of @Mal+ other thread.

    -"Lars and The Real Girl" and "Unfaithful"
    Hated these at first but then loved it the 2nd time and each time I see it, it gets better and better. Mostly because so much emotion is transmitted (and "stated") just through body language, and that, to me, is a sign of great acting, not to mention screenwriting.

    "Tales from Earthsea". I was so disappointed the first time I saw it, as I didn't think it was as entertaining as the other Studio Ghibli films I'd seen, and I love Ghibli. But now, after watching it a few times, it's actually one of my favourites.

    I saw "Friends with benefits" and hated it too. I've not seen it again.

    The Big Lebowski. The first time I saw it, I think I didn't get that it was supposed to be a comedy. I just thought it was a mystery with John Goodman getting pissed off about everything in the background. I also think I was annoyed when the entire mystery plot was revealed as window dressing basically. It also didn't help that I knew some really annoying guys in high school that were obsessed with that movie.

    I watched it again, and I suddenly got what it was trying to do. It's kind of a film noir parody with clever satirical takes on American ideas about class, nationalism, and religion.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I didn't like "Super 8" that much on first pass in the theater, but now I rewatch it 1-2x a year.

    Felt the same about Flatliners, which I came away with mixed feelings about in the theater, but it grew on me despite Schumacher's involvement.

    And Ghost.

    Maybe some others.

    It typically happens when I'm expecting one thing and get something different.

    wellllll.....At least as an anime, it's got to be better than Earthsea (2004) TV-mini.

    I only watched a third of it and never finished. However, I found the similar, same-time-released flick "No Strings Attached" to be more palatable -- especially because the woman was the colder one with more issues committing, which was a nice turnabout.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I may give Rumble Fish another stab this month, but usually don't revisit films if they don't speak my language from 0:00:01. I am not sure which language that is.

    @Giggly - lol you're doing a twist on Mal's twist on my original thread here
    "Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one."

    other things become ugly.
    When people see some things as good,
    other things become bad."
