Rewatching For The First Time

Let's say that you get hit in the head. Real hard. And you lose your memory. And you get to go back and rewatch any movie and experience its greatness again for the first time. What's that movie? Or better yet, what are those movies?

Pulp Fiction's the first one that comes to mind. Run Lola Run's another. Fight Club's another. Those are three movies where I sat in the theater almost in awe - and ready to see them again immediately upon exiting.

A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Wall-E.

That's all I need. That's all I'd ever need.

really tough.
I'd first jump to say a childhood favorite like Goonies, but I could already see that getting old as shit.

Maybe Royal Tenenbaums- its smart, sad, sweet, and funny (the ol' three S and one F equation)

I would love to say Hot Fuzz, but that movie only works if you have a memory for other genre films.

Craig said...

I would do almost anything to watch The Usual Suspects for the first time (again).

Off the top of my head: Psycho. Jaws. Fargo. Cinema Paradiso.

I would love to have the chance of watching 'Once Upon a Time in the West' all over again.

The first time knocked me sideways, upways and all sorts of ways. To have that feeling again would be a wonderful thing.

The same goes for many films but that's my original love. The first film to totally blow my mind.

I am with Fletch.

Pulp Fiction had me on the edge of my seat like no movie I had ever seen before.

Fox said...

Great thread...I'm bummed I am so late to it.

Most recently I would say either The Science of Sleep or The New World I walked out of those thinking "CLASSIC" immediately.

2001: A Space Odyssey, though I still feel awe when I see it.

There's a way to do this without risking brain injury. Don't watch a movie for a decade. See how much you remember then!

I saw a couple of movies that I was blown away by the first time I saw them. They may not necessarily be the best movies ever, but I wouldn't mind going back to that time and revisiting those feelings.

Star Wars. Course.

Poltergeist in a packed theater.

Seven. Scared the hell out of me.

Reservoir Dogs.

La Femme Nikita.

MC said...

I thought about this last night, and I would love to see the Good, The Bad and the Ugly for the first time again. I love that movie.

Clive Dangerously said...

Dawn of the Dead. I've never been more blown away by a movie. I walked out into the lobby when it was done and just stood there. Phenomenal.

I'm only 17, so I'm talking about the new one of course, but still; it's the movie that really got me passionate about going to the movies.

Piper said...

clive,

It's a good movie. It's hard for me to say that of remakes (although I would love to see The Thing again for the first time) because you already know what to expect.

I know that most players use fiesta Gold to get a shiny cool weapon like other players in game. To enhance something, you need enhance stones with fiesta money, The process of enhancing is simple if you have fiesta online gold. You can buy fiesta Gold after clicking enhance. The equipment will be enhanced to the next level if you have more fiesta online money.
