Arrow Worst movies for repeated viewings?

Sixth Sense comes to mind, doesn't help that this was really M Night Shymalan's only major sucess.

Good call, Passion of the Christ comes to mind as well because of that.

Once I read the title, the first response i thought of was "Any M Night Shymalan movie."
Most movies that have a twist at the end also have a decrease in replay value.

Most movies, yes. I'd say The Prestige is an exception to the rule---it's certainly got a twist ending, but it twists and turns all the way there; it's an exercise in misdirection and hiding in plain sight. Admittedly there's no suspense left for me, but I've still gotten a lot of replay value for the performances, the plot, and the tight construction of the movie-as-magic-trick metaphor.

Persepolis is the least-watched BD in my collection: saw it after purchase and again not long ago at a family gathering with some folks I knew would appreciate it. It's an excellent film, but rather heavy for an impulsive entertainment choice...not unlike Schindler's List or Grave of the Fireflies in that respect.

I read that Leaving Las Vegas is coming to BD in France & Germany. Shue was quite good, Cage put in perhaps the performance of his career, but 14 years after seeing the film in a New York cinema I feel no desire to watch it again.

I agree, however, I do enjoy Primal Fear for repeat viewing, but only about once every 2 or 3 years.

I would also say most extreamly low budget horror or sci-fi and any really poorly made movie like Battlefield Earth.
Still waiting on Pink Floyd:The Wall (1982) Blu-ray release.

I do watch it again from time to time, but I Have to be in one of those moods which does not happen often.

I've only seen Schindler's List once - more then enough for me.

I don't think that was the point. I think the point was to understand their perspective.

Wow, I just watched The Departed for about my fourth time total and I still enjoy it. I even watched the DVD on my Bluray player, it looked okay but I may pick up the BD (should've snagged it for $13 last month).

King Kong was painful the second time, not even just from like an emotional aspect but felt very very very very very very long. Lord of the Rings feel painfully long on multiple viewings (common factor?).

I liked watching The Prestige again because you look for the hints and everything, same with The Departed even.

I think a movie that has a twist is re-watchable if it's good. I've seen Oldboy three times and could easily watch it three more times.
