Original Starting post for this thread:
This is an offshoot from another post. We were discussing TV shows like SNL and how they were so much better in the 70s and not so great now. What other shows or experiences (concerts maybe? movies?) aren't so great the Second time Around?

For me, it was Love Story. I saw it in the theater in 1972 or 73 with my mom, her friend and her daughter. My mom and I cried, but her friend and her daughter sat stoically, couldn't get past "the language." I had read the book already at that age.

Then, several years ago, my ex and I rented it and...boy was it cheesy! It wasn't that great.

Your turn...

Gina, I’m going to sort of go the other way. Especially in movies, I find that for the MAJORITY of them, once is enough for me. The next time just becomes boring. Having said that, there are several movies that, to me, are just classic, and I can watch them over & over again, and never get tired of them. Several that come to mind are Hunt for Red October, The Italian Job, & Shawshank Redemption. There is just something about the acting and just the whole show that keeps sucking me back in. Another oldie would be West Side Story---I just NEVER get tired of the music & the dancing, even if the story is a little bit worn. As far as a more modern day one, Shindler’s List evokes a complete breakdown no matter how many times I see it.
