I have watched it on BD several times since that first time, though, and have become fond of it. In retrospect, I have come to accept the conventional wisdom that Day-Lewis gave one of his finest performances and agree that his Best Actor Oscar for the role was well deserved. I also liked Paul Dano, in a dual role as the weird Sunday brothers. Finally, I thought Robert Elswit's Oscar Winning cinematography was wonderful.

I loved There Will be Blood!

I thought watching the first 20 minutes I was seeing one of the best movies ever made.

The end made me go, "What... the... hell? I mean, seriously? Did they suddenly decide they were making a slapstick film for a second there?"

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!

There Will Be Blood's only redeeming part was the "I drink your milkshake" bit. The rest was tedious.

Open Water is another good one. I fast forwarded through the sequel on showtime. Looked horrible.

I love this thread... We recently spent three hours watching Gods and Generals. It's a civil war movie based on a pretty good book. The screenwriter basically just copied the book. Hours of really boring dialogue, and mediocre acting. Jeff Daniels is the star, so I should have had low expectations. I haven't seen anythhing that tops that waste of time.

This is another movie that made my eyes glaze over the first time I saw it but which has really grown on me, thanks to subsequent viewings. Its weaknesses are its overlength, two hours and forty minutes, and the excessive talkiness of too many scenes. Nevertheless, the performances are great, particularly Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck in the title roles. Further, no movie with both Sam Shepard and Sam Rockwell could be too bad.

I take your meaning. Although, as noted in my earlier post, I came to love the movie, watching it made me wonder what Anderson was thinking when he wrote the screenplay. It was almost two separate films, in which the first, quiet dialog free part seemed almost entirely unrelated to Daniel Plainview's around the bend nuttiness in the final chapter. I suppose an argument can be made that the change was a metaphor for the corrosive effect of great wealth and power. That point of view makes more sense when one considers that the screenplay was based on a Sinclair Lewis novel. Lewis was famously distrustful of both big business and big government. Anyway, I thought the movie was great entertainment and will no doubt watch it again.

Dude, you must be a masochist. You have named 2 paint drying movies you watched more than once until you convinced yourself you sort of liked them. I could recommend some decent ones if you need help.

I liked both Flags of Our Fathers and There Will be Blood a lot. There was no "sort of" involved in my opinion. I'm sorry you didn't like them and feel that it's your loss. Both the critics and IMDb voters thought highly of both films. There Will be Blood won two Oscars and was nominated for six others, including Best Picture and Best director. All of this reminds me that there are only two kinds of taste, good and bad. Make of that what you will.

Pirates of the Caribbean: at World's End. For me, it's "at Movie's end", because I've never, ever gotten to it. I've tried a couple times, too... but then I just get a good night's sleep.

Pirates, boats, mindless fun, one hell of a over-exaggerated epic score, amazing visuals, Johnny Depp, and of course, Keira...nope, I disagree

You said you didn't like them the first time not me, that they made your eyes glaze over the first time. Not my idea of a great movie. I was talking about Assassination of Jesse James and There Will be Blood, not Flags which was more entertaining than those 2 put together.

We all have different tastes. I really liked Cable Guy too, and most people seem to hate it.

Hey, I hated Pulp Fiction, and most people love that movie.

I agree. Both Rachel Getting Married and The Hours (I still want mine back, too) were depressing chick flicks in my book. Chick flick or not, no movie about addiction or suicide is likely to entertain me.

I didn't think Pulp Fiction was all that either. And I'm real happy I chose to abstain from The Hours.

Since i can't read minds, neither I, nor anyone else who read your post, could know which movies you were talking about.

Some of my all time favorite movies didn't much impress me the first time. In addition to The Assassination of Jesse James and There Will be Blood, a number of Coen brothers films come to mind including, The Big Lebowski and No Country for Old Men. But it doesn't end with the Coens. I felt the same way about The Wrestler. I am not smart enough (or arrogant enough) to come to an irreversibly negative conclusion about a film that is highly regarded by the majority of viewers based on only one viewing. Think about it.

Easy when the boobs in it are so obviously fake(they're lopsided sometimes), the dialogue is horrible, and the action is even worse. The only good thing about the first one was the Clearaudio Master Reference turntable. I'd buy the movie just for that scene alone.

I LOVE MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!!
