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.
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!
