Let’s be honest very few people don’t love a good movie. Yet someth=imnes you walk away and think to yourself what the fuck just happened? Did I enjoy that? I think that was good but not sure why. As a mega movie buff here are some movies I have had to watch twice, and not because they are awesome like Aliens or Predator but because I wasn’t really sure what I had just watched and felt it needed a lot more understanding. Most of them of the second watch though was amazing and a couple I regretted watching again as they were just shit.
I don’t want to spoil the movies in any way, so I will be brief and also quote my favourite line from each. Watch them and comment below let’s talk.
