    Some movies shake you on your first viewing but once the novelty wears off, you just don’t feel it when you watch it again.

    What are some movies that you don’t enjoy watching anymore but still consider a great movie because it left such an indelible impact on you on your first viewing?

    What are some great movies you know you’ll forever enjoy watching?

    Parasite’s second half wasn’t as good as the first one on second watch. Still an amazing film though.
    Also, every David O. Russell film is terrible and it took me a second watch to realize.

    I think you can watch all Fincher films over and over and you won’t ever get bored. I don’t love The Social Network as much as I used to but I know it will just suck me up once I sit down to watch it again.

    I LOVED Toy Story 3 when I first watched it, especially the escape scenes, but it lost all magic for me on second viewing.

    I’ve watched the Incredibles so many times and I could watch it 10 more times.

    This. I don’t get how American Hustle managed to get eight (!!) nominations. A scandal.

    Otherwise, I would say The Piano and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s nest. The two were in my top 10 before I rewatched them. I still think they are great movies but I wasn’t as impressed as I was when I rewatched them.

    On the other hand, I hated The Class and thought Blue is the warmest color was OK when I first watched them. Now, Blue is my favorite movie of all time and The Class is in my top 20.

    Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is the definition of a grower.

    It gets better on multiple viewings.

    Really liked it the first time, loved it the second time, and thinking it might be the best film, or one of the top 5 films of 2019.

    Jojo Rabbit definitely wasn’t as good the second time, mostly because so much of the entertainment value came from the jokes. But i also feel like, as great of a story as it is, you don’t get that much out of it from rewatches since it has a pretty simple message and doesn’t leave much open for interpretation.

    I feel like most Marvel movies are also not as good the second time when you lose the surprise value of that initial viewing.

    On the other hand, Joker and Parasite got so much better after second viewing: Parasite because there’s so much buried under the surface in it’s meticulous detail, and Joker because the unreliable narrator motif allows for different interpretations on second viewing.

    I love Frank Darabont’s films. I also love Sense and Sensibility and Notes on a Scandal.

    I actually enjoyed American Hustle a lot more during the second viewing!

    I’ll never grow tired of Nolan’s masterpieces.

    Blue Jasmine. I’ve probably seen it upwards of 20 times. The more times you watch it, the more you can see her delusion, how her husband is acutely aware of her delusion, her fears about aging, her love for Danny… It’s a really packed performance.
