Mighty's Rewatch Journey

#1

Post by mightysparks » February 2nd, 2014, 12:17 am

So, I just posted in The Film Lounge, but I thought it might be nice to keep track of this. I want to rewatch all films rated 8+ that I haven't seen since 2010 or earlier. At the time of writing this, there are 272 of them (!!). Many I've seen so many times that they are still fresh in my mind and heart, but others have lost their flavour and I can't remember how I feel. I may also include some 7s. Thus, this journey begins.

I'm going to try and watch the highest rated ones first, but I'll probably mix it up if I'm in the mood for a specific thing. Just about to start my first one; WILL RETURN.

Scary Movie (2000)

Image

Last watched: Before 2006
Original Rating: 9/10


I saw this at the cinema when it first came out, so I was 9, and I loved it. I remember going in with my dad and bro and the cinema attendant dude said it was "scarier than it looks" and warned against taking us in and my dad was just like 'they'll be fine, they've seen worse'. I've seen it a few times in the past, but I haven't seen it in at least 9-10 years. Having just watched Shriek the other day, I noticed so many similar references (not just the horror film ones, but ones like Dawson's Creek). I couldn't help comparing the two and this one is just SO much better than that piece of crap. The cast, for one, are better actors and funnier, it's more subtle (yes, subtle), the writing and jokes are funnier; the random stuff fits in much better and most references fit into the actual plot (which this film has, unlike Shriek). Actually, the fact that it has a plot is I think what makes it stand out from other similar spoofs - it's not just a string of random references.

Having said that, I didn't like it as much as whenever I last watched it. I still found bits of funny, and I definitely didn't think it was terrible, but yeah not a 9/10...

Like what? And when exactly did your journey into the world of horror begin? At 4 or 5?

I can't remember every movie I saw before I was 9... I'm not sure at what age, it was just what my dad always rented so maybe around 4/5 they would've let me watch. My horrible Evil Dead experience occurred around 7 years old and I was already a horror lover then soo...

Scary Movie 2 (2001)

Image


Last watched: 7/10/07
Original rating: 8/10


Started watching it last night, but got too tired. I remembered it being pretty much on par with the first one, but I've heard a lot of people saying it was worse, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Still liked it. I hate all the ones after this coz they're not even the same films any more, but this is still similar in tone and humour to the first one. Again, it has a plot. Found some jokes funny, some still too silly. Enjoyable, but not amazing.

BASEketball (1998)

Image

Last watched: Before 2006
Original rating: 9/10


I never liked this as much as Orgazmo, but I always loved this too. Probably the only sports movie I like as well. Anyway, I still thought it was pretty funny but also a bit boring as well. Stone and Parker are always great together, so they're always fun to watch. My dad has woken me up for school in the past saying "wake up bitch, you're my new best friend". Still made me laugh a lot, but downgrading this one slightly as well. Hoping I'm not going to be downgrading all of them :P Also need to try and avoid doing all the comedies first...

Nice to see that your taste in humour never matured :teehee: need to see some highbrow comedy like Gummo.

I'm partial to the Lumiere's Une partie de lawn-tennis II, though some think it's just a cheap cash-in on Une partie de lawn-tennis I.

it's a good idea. I've got a big IMDB list called Rewatch Due, which has 200-odd films. I'm planning to working on that this year. mixture of favourites and films I want to give a 2nd chance to.

Yeah, I had to limit mine a bit coz I had too many favourites :D I was having a hard time trying to reshuffle my favourites list; there were some films which I 'knew' I loved, but I didn't have an emotional connection with them anymore. Some I haven't seen in over 10 years. It just seems silly to be hanging onto a film I don't really know anymore, so I thought it's about time :P

Clerks. (1994)

Image


Last watched: 16/6/04
Original rating: 7/10


Last night, I was doing some ordering on my new favourites list (which includes everything rated 7+ just to make it easier) and I came across Clerks and decided to rewatch it. I had only seen it once, almost 10 years ago and I liked it but I don't think I really 'got' it and I didn't really remember it at all. On a rewatch, I thought it was hilarious and loved it. Some of the acting was a bit iffy, but it didn't really matter so much.

New rating: 8/10

Clerks II (2006)
Image[/b]

Last watched: 21/3/08
Original rating: 8/10


Clerks 2, I've seen twice, the last time being 6 years ago. I remembered liking it more than the first one (since it was an instant favourite), but again, I only remembered bits of it. The guy playing Elias was fecking great and I still found it pretty damn funny. Probably liked it about the same, but I much prefer the first one now.

The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985)

Image


Last watched: 30/1/2007
Original rating: 10/10


I've only seen this once, back when I still gave 10/10s on first time viewings :P Seven years later and it's still just as amazing and perfect. Being a schizoid, the fantasy/wish fulfillment aspect is something that is very relatable to me, and also makes the ending much more powerful and depressing (in a good way). Jeff Daniels is also ridiculously hot in this film and I spend most of the film just swooning :D I always found Mia Farrow's character annoying; somewhat in a good way because she represents a totally average person, but in a bad way because she's just an annoying kind of character. Altogether it all works though.

Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain (2001)

Image


Last watched: 11/10/06
Original rating: 9/10


When I first watched it, I gave it an instant 10. I downrated it to a 9 during a ratings purge a few years later. I'd only seen it the one time and I've been meaning to get around to it again for a long time. This was probably the biggest change in opinion I've had for a favourite. I just barely liked it. Really don't know what I saw in it the first time. I found it annoying and cutesy and not charming at all. It wasn't totally horrible, there were some nice parts (I liked the last 25 minutes or so, it resonated with my stalker-y introversion), but there's no longer any love here.

Jaws (1975)

Image


Last watched: November/December 2005
Original rating: 9/10


I decided to rewatch bal3x' favourite film. Surprisingly, I've only seen this twice - both times within a couple months of each other. I still more or less remembered it quite well and it still stands up. It's not quite scary, but suspenseful and entertaining. I noticed that unlike other similar types of films, it only has a handful of characters who are all essential to the actual events. Eg, there's no young woman prancing around looking for the shark with them, who's just there to strip off at some point, no hysterical person who's there to get eaten at some point etc. It keeps things focused on the important aspects and therefore never feels padded with fluff or cheap tricks. It's also not constant 'sharky sharky sharky', and it's mostly just stalkin' in silence. It lacks that special something to make it a 10, but it's still pretty awesome.

Sleepwalkers (1992)

Image


Last watched: 2004
Original rating: 7/10


Sooo, I have a weird history with this film, which I've mentioned before. I rented it one day in 2004, made a copy, and proceeded to use it as a bedtime film; watching it almost every night, in bed, just before I went to sleep. Why? Not sure exactly, I didn't even think it was that great a film. However, there were a few reasons:

1.


2.

Normally I would stop watching at the 50 minute mark because reason #3 ermm.. changes. One night, I left it playing to listen to the music while the credits ran and I saw this:

Thought it was the most awesome cat name ever, and my username was born. I still remembered most of the dialogue and I couldn't believe how many random sayings and words I still say in the same intonation or think in my head and I had no idea this was where I got it from (corn cobs also make me think of the film).

Anyway, onto the film. It was still pretty crap. It's not really a good film, but it's just lovable somehow. I always loved the chemistry between Krause and Krige and Krause and Amick. Amick is especially good and likable here, Krige goes between bad and good (script can be blamed), Krause is ok but mostly gets a pass because of his nice face.

It moves along fairly well, despite being a bit silly, until the afore-mentioned change at the 50 minute mark. All of a sudden it turns into a bizarre comedy with some terrible over-acting on Krause's part and the stupidest dialogue; I always remembered COP KABOB because I hated 'kabob'. None of the comedy aspects really work at all. Also, the plot never really made any sense to me as it never really goes into enough detail and everything just seems weird. I probably still like the film about the same, tbh. I didn't think it was a good film then and I still don't think it is, but I just really like it. And the music is so wonderful.

I also never liked the sad ending. Though they made Tanya a likable character, I felt more for the plight of the 'Sleepwalkers' and especially Krige going into protective mother mode. I always wanted them to survive and I hated how it just had a typical Hollywood ending.

The Langoliers (1995)

Image


Last watched: Before 2006
Original rating: 10/10


Can't remember when I last watched it, I'm sure it's been over 10 years. It was always a favourite of mine has a kid and even though I didn't remember it line for line, it was basically exactly how I remembered it. It never feels like 3 hours - and it's also classified as a mini-series on IMDb, but it's always been a film to me - the acting is uneven and some of the characters are just a waste of space (and I always hated Dinah and that other girl), but for the most part it's a decent ensemble. Toomy is also great; he was always my favourite and I had a sort of a thing for him when I was a kid and I went through a phase where I would tear up paper like he does coz I thought it was cool :/

I love the plot, I think it moves along well and builds up the creepiness and weirdness successfully. I always remembered the Langoliers looking awesome and I liked the effects, but now:

:/ I still kinda like it for some reason and I think it adds to the whole 90s feel of the film. So yeah, I still thought it kicked all kinds of butt and was totally awesome.

I can't believe you gave Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain a 6!

Especially when I originally gave it a 10 :P I really enjoyed the ending, as I mentioned, but the rest of it just annoyed me.

I really enjoyed the ending as well. I guess it has been a while since I've seen it, but I'm pretty sure I'd still love it.

I'm crying with you. I even named my first daughter after this movie (technically not really, but it's fun to say it).

Oh, I love the name Amelie too! I'd definitely consider the name if I ever have a daughter.
