Logan

The sixth sense
Interstellar ( but I love rewatching other Nolan films, Begins, TDK and Inception I've seen many many many times).


The Godfather films I watch every 5 years or so.
Give me some time and I'll come up with more.
Oh wait ! Leaving Las Vegas ! A Beautiful Mind...
Se7en messed me up.

If, at any point in a movie, Morgan Freeman says "we're not gonna have a happy ending with this one", get up, walk out, and never look back.

Ah you bring a good point. Se7en is a rewatchable film for me but because I love the atmosphere of it. It is raining like most of the film and it's all dark and wet and I'll watch anything with lots of rain.
I often rewatch films that achieve that sense of "oh I like being here". I know the theme of the film is terrible, but atmosphere and a sense of time and place is a rewarding thing for myself.

Schindler's List is rewatchable to me, but I have no desire to rewatch Logan.

I am surprised at that. For me i CAN rewatch it, but only once every 2-3 years, cause of how depressing the film is for most of it.

I think The Sixth Sense does/can hold up pretty well, a big part of what makes it good isn't the ending but that it both isn't and is a horror film.

It is a masterpiece of set design imo.. Plotline could have done with a little more work, but the acting was great.

Unbreakable is a modern masterpiece considering that it became before the whole superhero genre boom of recent years and it still holds up, it does something no other superhero movie could so far.

Agree on Logan. I enjoyed it but I have no desire whatsoever to watch it again.

Have you ever watched the chronological cut of Memento ? It's a hidden extra on the R2 DVD (don't know about other regions). It's an interesting exercise although it completely removes any mystery, as we know things that Leonard doesn't.

La La Land. Its a great movie, but for me personally it reminded too much of a relationship I had with a woman in my 20s. I could never watch that movie again, too emotionally taxing.

Watchmen was definitely a chore to get through.

People may look at me crazy but Rashomon was too.

Cabin in the Woods; I've seen it several times, but the suspense and reveal just don't have the same effect when you know what's coming.

It's not that good first time round, given the entire film is spoilt in the opening shot of the film and the trailer hardly goes out of it's way to conceal it either. Such a frustrating film to watch. Can't abide it.
