    I passed on this at the movies but it's on tonight and it's surprisingly good!

    What movies did you pass up at the theater only to find they were very enjoyable when you met them later on TV, Netflix, or the discount bin?

    Fight Club.

    I passed on it in the theaters but loved it when I first saw it on T.V.

    I was flat-out shocked at how good that was. I turned up my nose because it seemed like a guy-flick. Was I wrong or what? :o

    Watch "Snatch" if you haven't seen it. Failure to do so reduces your value as a living organism by approximately 47.6%. And since I am the decider you might want to heed my recommendation in this regard. I'm just sayin'.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    I'm quite the opposite to a degree. I didn't see it in theaters and when I first saw it on video, I hated it but with each subsequent viewing, I grew to love it. Now it's one of my favorite movies. As for the OP:


    Ace Ventura: Pet Detective-Passed on it in the theater but bought the video sight unseen. Popped it into my VCR and nearly pissed myself laughing.

    The Matrix-Didn't see this in the theater but saw it on video and loved it. Unfortunately I saw the next 2 in the theater.

    Lord of the Rings-Didn't see this in the theater but liked it enough on video to see the next 2 in the theater.

    Kill Bill Vol. 1-Saw the trailer for this and thought it hokey. When it came out on video I watched it and loved it and saw the 2nd in the theater.
