Right? I hadn't seen it since I was very young, but on a whim I watched it on Netflix. Lot of stuff went right over my head. Also, surprised to learn how many of those songs I still knew all the words to.

Yeah! (on both counts). Grease also teaches a horrible life lesson.

The Master. Hated it the first time I saw it, but it grew on me a bit. Hoffman's performance makes it.

The Jurassic Park III
Watched it again not to long ago, Still the worst in the original trilogy, but not as bad as I remember it.

DareDevil, I don't get all the hate. Sure it has problems, but it is not the worst Marvel Comics movie ever made.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

I wasn't very interested in it when I first saw it. In fact I was kind of ready to dislike it when it premiered. Some Forrest Gump wanna be with a weird twist, I thought.

In the following years however (thanks some transformative experiences in my own life) I've began to see some oddly beautiful things in the movie. It's melancholy tone gets to me every time now.

I think the simple piano theme is one of the most enduring I've ever heard as well.

The Big Lebowski is THE movie I didn't like but the second time I watched it (a couple of months ago) I loved it. Don't know what it was, maybe I needed all those years of cinematic education to finally appreciate it.

I don't recall being particularly fond of The Big Lebowski when I first watched it either. I've seen it many times since though!

Ghost In The Shell, hated it with a passion when I first saw it. Love the ideas and the world now I've grown up a bit since I was 15.

Conan the Barbarian (1982) - Never liked it much when I was younger. Now I love it.

The Life Aquatic, Fargo, and Blade Runner are films I didn't care for at first, but appreciated them far more on 2nd watches.

I've only seen The Life Aquatic once, and I think it's definitely a film I would enjoy more now. Not that I hated it the first time, it just didn't seem remarkable (though it probably is)

Fargo has always been very enjoyable, but once was enough for Blade Runner.

The Big Lebowski

I thought these films was mediocre at first but later realized they were pretty great.

Civil War. Ross disingenuous presentation that no one pointed out the flaws started me out pretty badly and I really didn't like the ending, but one repeated viewings I appreciate the other sections so much. I actually appreciated them the first time, I just hated the ending so much I kind of blanked the good stuff out.

Even the last time I saw it, I turned it off before Cap's and Tony's final confrontation. I guess it at least elicits strong emotions

Interstellar

I don't think I disliked it as such, but it kind of the hit the middle of the road. Even on my second viewing I wasn't impressed and sort of forgot about it. For some reason, known only to the gods, I went back a third time and really enjoyed it! Man, what an excellent movie. Maybe Interstellar just takes a few viewings to truly appreciate it.

One negative though:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
They did mess up the reunion scene. Like the entire movie builds and builds and leaves you in suspense about whether or not Coop and Murph will see each other again, then they do and they're like "Hey wassup, okay I gotta go." It's pretty anti-climatic for what should have been the film's big emotional punch.


It often feels like Nolan is much more interested in telling a clever story, and the human element is only there as an afterthought. Almost like having emotions in the movie is an inconvenience. I know that's treasonous talk around these parts. Even Inception, which is probably Nolan's best film emotionally speaking, still seems a little wooden in that area.

Blade Runner.

Maybe it was because I was in high school at the time with a teacher who praised the film to no-end to the point of obnoxiousness but it didn't hook me at all. Upon giving it another chance when I saw it on TV, however, I actually kinda liked it so I ended up buying it and now I'm a full-on fan.

Quite excited for 2049!

Tron: Legacy. Saw it in the cinema in 2010, and while I loved the visuals and music I absolutely hated the story and the characters.

I couple of years later I borrowed it from the DVD store, just to put on in the background for ambient noise.

After a while the film as a whole began to grow on me - I was interested by the strong religious themes, and how they played out.

All in all, I won't say it's a particularly good movie, but I'll watch it.

Constantine with Keanu. While not a great adaptation of the source material, I still think it's better than what DC is currently doing with their live action movies.

Yup! I still haven't found a world quite as immersive as the world Blade Runner presented. The colors, the dimness, etc.
