    Disagree about the biased part. Agree with everything else. And I wasn't dissing plot-driven films. Just mentioned them as my most common example of films that don't hold up well with repeat viewings, and that's only in reference to such films that lack nuance/intricacy/craft/whatever and rely solely on the story itself. The best plot-driven films will keep you just as engrossed on your 6th watch as your first watch even when you know exactly how the story plays out.

    For instance, a lackluster suspense film might have you on the edge of your seat on a first viewing, but offers little to nothing on a re-watch. A suspense film in the hands of Hitchcock, however, remains just as rewarding, if not more so, well after the surprises are spoiled, because there's so many other aspects/details to appreciate on re-watches that you might not have noticed the first time (or second or third, even).

    Anyways, good to see your Korean butt around here again. Will your presence last or is this just a momentary fling before your job takes you away from us again?
