This might sound like an odd topic, but hear me out. You get your well loved movies right, the ones you’ll watch over and over again, the ones you basically know every line to and still get the feels at the end. Or even the ones you’ll watch repeatedly to get every hidden detail, the ones you’ll want to revisit time and again just to exist in that universe. But, I’ve found that sometimes, and it happens very rarely, you’ll get a movie that is excellent in every way, but you can’t watch it again.
This happened to me with Fury. It was a brilliant movie, from the acting and the script to the cinematography and the score and I could go on about it but you get the idea. I just don’t think I could sit through it a second time. It was just… really heavy. Like, I finished watching it and I sat for about five minutes just thinking about what happened. The whole thing weighed on my mind for days afterwards. The experience was so complete that I think a second viewing would detract from how I felt the first time around.
Has this ever happened to you? Have you come across a movie that experience that was just right that you know you could never repeat?
