With another thread dedicated to new discoveries, I thought I'd start a thread for titles you've revisited. I received many new movies this Christmas, and thought I'd chime in on how well they've held up over time, or how much I thought of them upon a second go-round. I've watched three so far. Unforgiven 1992 directed by Clint Eastwood This has a been an unforgettable movie to me. When I first saw this in the theaters, I came into the movie just as it was starting at the whore-house. This is a dark scene, and with the lights out in the theater, it was damn near pitch black in there. In trying to find a seat, I inadvertently started to sit on some poor woman. Right from the go, this was a Helluva movie. This film hasn't lost a thing. I haven't seen in for probably a good five years, but I still love it. Nothing beats Clint's cold glare and the unforgettable That's right. I killed woman and children. I've killed about everything that moves or crawls at one time. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill. Great movie. 1/2 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest 1975 directed by Milos Forman Jack at Jack's finest. I haven't seen this one since about 92 or so after I read the book. I loved the movie then, and I love the movie now. Louise Fletcher wasn't quite as evil as I remembered her, but then again I could be getting confused with the book. Wonderful performances by Jack and many supporting actors, including Brad Douriff in, what I believe, was his screen debut. And I managed to find another movie that I love, and my wife dislikes. 1/2 Spiderman 2002 directed by Sam Raimi I remember a while back when it was rumored that James Cameron was going to do this movie. Boy, was I excited. Cameron, the man who brought us Aliens and the Terminators was going to do Spiderman. Sweet! Then came all the legal hassles, and next thing you know, I lost all excitement for it. Then it's done filming, and all the hoopla and buzz begins. Mr. Raimi, one of my personal faves, had directed. And I still wasn't all that interested. Then she opened huge, and everyone was talking about it. I still wasn't all that enthused. But, I took my kids, and off we went to see Spiderman. They loved it. I, due mainly to a bad experience with unruly juveniles, wasn't quite as praising. Then we caught it again at the drive-in (not the best place for picture and sound quality, but a wonderful experience in its own). Again, I liked the film, but it didn't strike a chord with me. Then, I watched her again last night. I must say, I enjoyed it a whole lot more. I rank her up there with Batman. Could it be the "off-center" directors of these films that make them so likable to me? I'm not sure, but at any rate, I thank them.
