Welcome back boys and girls, guys and gals, robots and non robots whatever! Just the intro who cares. Moving on, but the point is we are back guys with another amazing article and today we’re talking about movies that when you first watch them you’re like that was pretty great, but I feel like I missed a lot of stuff. I feel like I missed a lot of details here. I know when you watched the second time, you’re more like “Oh my god! Oh wow! I missed that whole part the first time, I love this movie even more. Let’s watch it again, kind of like that but a bit more chill type. The point is this is most amazing top 10 movies that you need to watch twice to understand.
Also massive spoiler alert! SPOILER ALERT! Because some of these movies needs to be watched a second time. I will be giving away a lot of spoiler so only continue if you’re a bit of a movie buff or you don’t mind spoilers. Sorry, but not sorry, you have been warned.
So let’s take a look at the 10 Movies You Need To Watch Twice To Understand!
10. The Sixth Sense
Starting with The Sixth Sense which stars everyone’s favorite kind of Bruce, the Willis! Most people enjoy this movie on face value. For the most part it looks like a story of a guy trying to fix his marriage and help a kid with his visitors who are dead people. It’s not a nice thing to have dead visiting you in the night. So it’s pretty thing to help the boy. Well of course in the end the audience experiences that spine chilling moment where we realize that Bruce Willis was a ghost all along.
And immediately people have two reactions, firstly they go “Wow are you kidding? Oh my god! That’s crazy! Are you serious right now?” Then they have to watch it allover again to see how they miss something that’s seemingly so obvious, but there it is hidden in plain sight. The signs were there all along. The second viewing is definitely needed and only makes you want to watch it again and again and again.
9. Cloud Atlas
This movie was adapted from a novel and does its best to take a story that contains six different narratives spread out across 1500 years and put them into one movie. It’s one of those movies that leaves you standing outside the movie theater like “I know I just watched something pretty epic, but I can’t quite get my head around it”. For me this made me actually go out and buy the actual book that it’s based on so I can get the full picture. But for many other people it makes them want to go back and watch the whole movie again.
Many people have said that upon a second or even a third viewing they could focus more on all the different threads that make up this whole spiderweb of a movie. Sometimes it’s hard to follow just one person’s life in a movie so when this movie requires you to follow six they are all intertwined in this crazy web.
8. The Prestige
Now we have a movie that makes magic seen terrifying it’s ‘The Prestige’. On a surface we see two highly competitive magicians dueling it out to see who is the best illusionist around. They continue to one up each other with better tricks with their whole vanishing acts, but it looks like Christian Bale’s character Alfred has finally won when he pulls off a trick that Hugh Jackman’s Robert simply can’t explain about, no matter how hard he tries, it looks like actual real magic. At the end though we see that Alfred was actually two identical twin brothers that took turns living in one person’s life in order to pull off the greatest magic trick of all time.
Then Robert ends up creating a weird clone killing machine to copy him. But the point is that once you realize that Albert was actually two brothers the whole time you really really have to go back and watch the whole thing again. You just have to. The whole movie is littered with references to this. Even the whole finger bleeding thing, the analogy of the bird in the cage and even the fact that the girlfriend Sarah says that one day he loves her and the next he doesn’t because he is two different people. The foreshadowing in this movie is like crazy good and it screams out for a second.
