I watched this again the other night. There’s always a slight risk with such massively popular and influential movies that they’ll fade with time. Especially with movies with such a strong “gimmick”.
I have to say though, that I enjoyed this movie just as much this time around as previously. It is just so carefully and well made. And I was struck again that at the end, the nominal stories are all tied up, but you’re left with an enormous sense of potential – like this is just the beginning of the awesome.
So it appears it’s on the list of movies that I have yet to get tired of watching – sure, I don’t watch these all the time, but I have watched them sufficient that I should be tired of them…
The Mummy Returns
The Usual Suspects
The Maltese Falcon
