Hated to Liked
1.Do the Right Thing: Saw it and found it incredibly offensive and mean spirited. Saw it again and was blown away, it was like watching a completely different film, one that was sympathetic, mature, and textured.
2.The Truman Show: Saw it and hated it. THen saw it again after a friend pretty much begged me to give a second chance. Astonishing. One of the finest films of the 90s.
3.That Thing You Do!: Found it trite. But the second time I saw it for the masterpiece it is.
4.Joe Vs. The Volcano: I don't think I gave it a fair shake the first time I watched it anyway, so I watched it again with a group of friends to find it really endearing, a real under appreciated gem.
5.Mission Impossible 3: I didn't hate it, but I certainly didn't love it. Upon a second viewing I was completely turned. Great film.
