Probably ones i regret not giving the chance they should have had.
You see, the ones that were magical happened at a time in my life when they filled the void. Part of that probably added to the magic of the movie itself. Watching those movies again for the first time would likely eliminate the wow factor. I think its more f a "you had to be there" kind of thing.
Movies i wish i could have given another chance..now that is another story.
To which, off the top of my head would be:
Pacific Rim (Was too critical upon first watch)
Godzilla (Last one - kept on pausing like every 20 minutes - crisis at home)
The Exorcist (Special Re-screening - Had a bunch of twops chatting throughout the movie - totally ruined it!!!)
Just so I could have that same reaction again at the last 2 minutes. I was the only one in the theater (there was a couple at it too who walked out as soon as the screen cut to black so missed the sting at the end). I actually jumped out of my seat when I started to piece together what was about to happen.
If it were possible to go back and watch these for the first time... it would HAVE to be in a theatre for sure though.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
I was too young to see it and love it for what it is at first so... I actually was scared of it the first time I saw it.
Later on, I watched it again and I started loving it.
WIsh I could've given that a proper view for a first time and admire it from the start!
Let's see, what else...
Most classic Disney movies are on this list mainly because I saw them in Dutch when I was younger and I really wish I could get that out of my head! lol
I wish I saw everything in the original language from the start... x)
