After the DailyView ends on April 28th, I have a couple of ideas of what is next. One of them will begin on Sunday, May 1st. Every Sunday for the foreseeable future, starting on May 1st, I am going to be doing what I am calling “Do Over.”
Sunday mornings are always a good time for a laid back enjoyment of a movie. There are rare occurrences when I would not be just sitting around watching TV or YouTube on a Sunday morning. So for every week on Sunday morning, I will be picking out a movie that I have seen once before and found it lacking in some manner. Then, I will revisit the film, seeing if my original opinion holds up or if I have changed my thoughts.
This has happened several times over the years. When I watched Se7en in the theater, I was not a fan. Just a few years ago, I rewatched Se7en and found it considerably more engaging and enthralling than I had that first time. Fargo is another excellent example. I did not like Fargo when I first saw it on video, but I went back to it around the time of the FX TV series and found that I had misjudged Fargo the first time.
Now, just because I didn’t like a movie, doesn’t mean that I will give it a Do Over. Movie 43 was a film I saw once and I absolutely hated it. It is not a film that I feel has aged well and I want no part of watching it again. Typically, this will be movies that other people have positive opinions about.
This is where I will keep the running tally of movies of the Do Over. I am not sure how long the Do Over will run, but I have several films on the list so I guess we’ll see.
