That was exactly what I said, that a depressing movie can be great. I just don't feel like having a depressing experience as often as I want to have a fun ride so that's why the fun ride is likely to get rewatched more often even if it's a worse movie.
Some movies are more demanding of you as a viewer and I think that can be very rewarding, but there are fewer times I will be up for those as I won't watch demanding movies when I'm tired, distracted etc. A movie that's just fun and entertaining can pretty much be watched at any time.
So there's many other factors than how good a movie is that affect how often I rewatch it, which was the original point.
