Thursday Movie Picks: Movies You Have a Different Opinion After Rewatch

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
This week I’ll talk about some films that changed my opinion after a rewatch!

#1 Mr. Nobody

I already mentioned this film for a different TMP topic. However, it was also the first movie I thought of when I read the theme for today.
When I first saw Mr. Nobody I was entranced. Lot’s of stuff is going on and many fascinating ideas are mentioned. However, once you are somewhat familiar with what is presented, you’ll realize that the movie is just name dropping stuff. The more often I see Mr. Nobody, the less impressed I am.

#2 Beauty and the Beast

Although I still think that it is a beautifully made Disney film, it has lost some of its charm now that I’m older. If you take a closer look at the story, you’ll see that it’s basically a glorified version of the Stockholm Syndrom. So, I’m less inclined to be super excited about it.

#3 Mermaids

When I first saw the film I might have been a little too young to fully get all the themes. Therefore I found it only mildly interesting.
When re-watching I a few years ago, I found it to be absolutely lovely and enchanting!

Which film did you change your opinion on? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I still love Beauty and the Beast, that live action remake was atrocious though.

    I’ve only seen Mr. Nobody once, and I enjoyed it ,but I feel like I might be the same as you if I rewatched it.

  2. Mermaids – I saw it as kid, I remember liking it.

    Beauty and the Beast – Saw it as a kid well. It looks beautiful of course and love the songs.

    With a lot of the Disney classic fairytales…there’s always that disturbing element. A lot of fairy tales began life as folk tales that were cautionary tales.
