Default Which Movie/s do Wish You Could Experience For First Time Again

Mine would have to be The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,
I remember my dad taking me to the theater and I didn't see any movies that interested me and he told me about The Lord of the Rings, I told him I guess. Once the movie started my eyes never left the screen for those 3 hours. I'd never heard anything about it but it made me want to become a film fan and a film director.

The Exorcist, and probably every other good horror movie. Plus movies with surprise or twist endings. They're usually not as good after the first viewing.

The first Star Wars movie. Seeing that ship reveal itself on the screen for the first time was awesome and then the final battle scene in the trench on the star destroyer........

For me it would have to be Star Wars in 1977. I was 9 years old and I don't think I blink even once during the entire two hours.

and it would be fun to actually have Breakfast At Tiffany's with My Fair Lady

Oh f**k yes. The B&W stills from the documentary on the BD are fascinating to stare at and imagine what it would've been like to experience a movie that changed the future of film like that.

The original Star Wars trilogy. My first experience watching them was during summer school in a classroom. Not the best experience for the first time.

If I could see them for the first time again and have the experience be at least as good as the original experience, then I would likely choose:

There's Something About Mary --- HILARIOUS movie, but it was by far the best the first time that I saw it and didn't know what to expect next. I remember it rather vividly. It was the summer after I had graduated high school, and a friend of mine and I went to see the sneak preview of it the week before it 'officially' opened, and ran into several people we went to school with, and we all sat together and were laughing our asses off. It was pretty cool.

South Park Bigger, Longer, and Uncut--- largely for the same reasons as 'Mary', at least as far as the humor part went (I actually went by myself to see this as everyone else was either busy or didn't want to go.. that's the only part that I would change about the experience) though this is one that if I were just seeing it for the first time now, having still seen the past many, many years of the show, which has arguably done things more 'out there' than the movie, I'm not sure if it would be the same first experience as it was seeing it back in '99 with the show being at the point it was at then.

Mortal Kombat (the first movie) --- I know, this seems like an odd choice. By no means is this movie a cinematic masterpiece. However, at the time of it's release, I was 15 and was VERY much into the MK games (I still am very much into the games, but not like I was at the time), and at the time, being a big 'MK-head', the movie just fired on all cylinders for me! I know some people didn't like it because it didn't have the full violence from the games, but IMO most of that stuff is so over-the-top that it probably wouldn't translate well into a movie anyway. I thought most of the casting was great, there were a few surprises in the mix. It just hit all the right notes for me at the time. At the time I think I delcared it "the best movie I had ever seen". By NO means does it hold that same title for me now, but I do still enjoy it for what it is. None the less, I would love to relive that experience again.

The Back to the Future Trilogy--- These are what I presently (and for some time now) consider to be my all-time favorite movies. But I was rather young when I saw them, particularly the first one. I was 5 when the first movie came out in theaters, though I don't think I saw it under at least a couple of years later on VHS. I was 9 and 10 respectively when Parts II and III came out. I very much enjoyed those experieces, but there so long ago for me that they aren't really fresh in my mind. Particularly the first time watching the first film.

Part of me would love to see them for the first time now as an adult.... especially the first movie. I do get concerned over how I would react to the sequels if I were seeing them for the first time now. That would be a very different experience, and I know that as it is the opinions of the sequels greatly vary from person to person. I enjoy them quite a bit currently, but I do fear what my reaction would be seeing them for the first time now... particularly Part II with the 2015 stuff. At the time, being a kid, seeing flying cars, hoverboards, etc was all exciting, and 2015 was far off enough at the time that from my then young, naieve perspective, this may as well have been within the realm of possibilities as to how 2015 would be. Even though I know better now, I still enjoy it, in part for nostalgic reasons, but also from a "that would still be cool" perspective. But if I were seeing it now for the first time, with how silly some of that is, I'm not sure what my reaction would be.

Still, I think I would overall enjoy them quite a bit. These are still good character-driven stories, and I think I would get a real kick out of them now seeing them for the first time.
Say "no" to Samsung Blu-Ray players. Say "yes" to a whole lot more.
