I only thoughtsGoodfellas was a good three star movie when I saw it, but subsequent rewatches have warmed me over another star.

I initially hated Mulholland Drive but as I watched more of Lynch's work I got an urge to check it out again and I fell in love.

I was unimpressed when I watched Cinema Paradiso for the first time, thinking something 7/10. A few years later I bought the director's cut one, and it blew me away. Now it's my #2 film of all time. (That first time's reaction was mainly because I wasn't in the mood though)

Interesting. I watched Cinema Paradiso once and was indeed unimpressed

What version is that? I've seen many people say the director's cut is too long and makes it not focus on the movies aspect. In my thought, it adds so much undercurrent to the whole last act when it's set in the present, and paints the character of Alfredo in a grayer area, which makes the ending hit harder. I think my first watch I found the unextended ending rather abrupt.
