    The Passion is one I will never see again.

    One movie that sticks in my head that I wish I wouldn't have seen the second time was Road to Perdition. It was a great movie the first time I saw it but I went out and bought it and the next time I watched it, it was lacking.

    I don't like watching scary movies a second time, but other than that I do like to rewatch movies. You find a lot of things that you missed before. Actually comedies (good ones at least) I almost always like to watch a 2nd or 3rd time.

    "Hard Candy" and "Funny Games." Both are decent movies, and both are interesting from an artistic perspective, but both rely heavily on twists for their impact. Once you know the twists, there's not a lot left.

    Yeah, Hard Candy was going to be my choice too. It was an egaging movie but I can't see myself watching it again since it was all build up and now I know the ending.

    Most Roman Polanski movies.

    Ordinary People. I thought it was very well done, but too depressing to watch again. I also agree with ORH's pick of Schlinder's List and The Passion of the Christ.

    Haha, I've watched There Will Be Blood about ten times, absolutely love it. There are so many nuanced layers in Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano's performances, I pick up something new everytime.

    The Assassination of Jessie James by the Coward Robert Ford.

    Good movie, but just slowed paced and very long.

    Hotel Rwanda is another excellent but difficult movie to watch.

    In general, I'm right there with you. I do take exceptions to favorite comedies and some very very few non-comedy movies that I just really like the whole story/setting/characters, etc.
