Weekend Roundtable: Second Chances

Posted Fri Apr 26, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

Sometimes, we just can't properly appreciate a movie on first viewing. Perhaps the marketing misled us into expecting something entirely different than what we'd actually get, perhaps we set impossibly high expectations that no movie could possibly meet, or perhaps we were just in a bad mood the day we first saw it. Whatever the reason, some films require a second (or sometimes third or even more) viewing before we can recognize their best qualities. In this week's Roundtable, we revisit some of the movies that we just didn't "get" the first time around.
