The only one I hadn't seen before was the first one, which I got mainly for its credentials. Unfortunately, it didn't deliver.
I rented the last two to watch with my brothers. I'm trying to revisit horror-type movies that I haven't seen in a while to see how they've held up. A few months ago, I rented the Exorcist, and was surprised to find that it still makes me want to vomit.
I first saw The Proposition in August, I think, and really liked it then. I wanted to see it again, and the second time around I expected it to be not quite as thrilling as the first time, but I was wrong. I actually started watching it at 6 in the morning today because it was due back at noon and I had other stuff to do between then. I thought that watching a movie that early would just put me back to sleep, but that first scene woke me right up and I wasn't too tired after that. This movie was even better the second time around, although it was great seeing it on the big screen.
I haven't gotten a chance to watch Jacob's Ladder again yet, but I'm in no real hurry since I can keep it until Sunday.
Jacobs Ladder is great but I must disagree on The Exorcist and The Proposition. I thought both were pretty lame for reasons I can't quite put my finger on. Well, The Exorcist was just silly...I think it's dated pretty badly and The Proposition was just...boring. I can't really remember what happened in it.
