Movies you have seen that you are not comfortable with

What are some movies you have entirely or partially seen that you do not feel comfortable with at all?

SPIRIT'S HOMECOMING

This movie takes place during the 1940s. A group of Japanese soldiers arrests two innocent girls from some Korean province and take them in for slavery. It's one movie I am so against. I mean, I do support Japan, but the way those soldiers treated those poor girls like worthless pieces of zhit, all I can say is WOW!

Passion of the Christ

A movie that is simply torture porn, with all the blood and gore one would ever want and that's about it. What tips this over the edge for me is the fact that many try to justify the movie because of its obvious religious attachment, trying to say that the violence is the point. The movie could have easily instead focused on Christian teachings and positive things, but instead goes for the guilt trip style and chooses sheer violence to put its message into the forefront. Even when I identified as religious I still seen no real point to this film and the obsession towards it from everyone else was irritating to say the least.

Any romances movies...it's just so annoying and uncomfortable seeing people making love really.

Movies that have historically inaccurate things

I agreed, I hate it when they do that just to make the main character more of an hero and it just leaning toward being plain bias. But I guess they needed a story but at least make it close to accuracy.

I was with some teenagers one time and they started watching Sausage Party and I was not having any of it. A bunch of swearing and disgusting "humor" that I honestly see no point to. I just tried not to pay attention to it. Same thing when they started watching The Conjuring 2. I didn't even watch or listen to it because I am extremely sensitive and anything of that sort would make me scared for the rest of my life.

Yes same thing, it's so awkward, plus my beliefs about that make me not want to watch that too. I'm okay up to the point of kissing but if it starts going beyond that, that's where I draw the line.

Also aside from romances  others movies too as well. I don't know about you but I first checked why it's rated R for. If  it does contain that content I would always be prepare  to skip it.  But nevertheless, I always make sure if a movie is going to be heavily on that. If it is, then I wouldn't bother watching it. I feel though that most American movies are like that...

Same here too, I can't take comedy movies or shows, if they keep dropping the same freakin inappropriate  joke being used in a different ways.

Honestly? The Hills Have Eyes.

I am a big horror movie buff, but I will never rewatch the remake of The Hills Have Eyes due to a relatively realistic looking rape scene where you can see a hillbilly looking man raping a young woman and her screaming for help. It's something that makes me uneasy to see in a movie, especially when it's depicted. I do not like seeing realistic rape scenes at all. I mean sexual violence is a fascination (H. R. Gieger and all), but that's a point where it goes too far for me.

That's particularly disgusting. You'd have to be a real head case to enjoy the rest of the movie after that. :unamused:

There's more than enough movies that focus on Christian teachings. It doesn't hurt to have one that skews in a different direction. The brutality is exactly the point of the movie, to get the viewer to understand what kind of suffering Jesus had to go through, exaggerated or otherwise. It's one thing to be told the story but by showing it in such detail they make an attempt at getting the point to hit closer to home.

A Serbian Film comes to mind as well, but it’s even worse with that stuff. I can’t even talk about it, it’s so bad.

Yet how many of those movies about the teachings came even a tiny, TINY bit close to Passion in terms of money? None of them. So I guess the extreme brutality and guilt trip style is what makes the big bucks. I still see no real reason for such a film. It has the substance of a Saw film, but it is apparently amazing because of its religious attachment. I really don't like that very much. Plus, anyone from the outside looking in will simply see a movie that is just gore porn and something that is horribly barbaric with no real point. Of course the Christians who are already Christians will see a point to the film, but everyone else, it is just non-stop violence with a simple story stitched on top.

While that scene is definitely really hardcore, the one payoff it has for the film is those Hillbilly people get hardcore owned by the end. If there was one thing that movie did well, it really made you hope that the hero gets his revenge and hooooooo boy does he.

It got the money precisely because it appealed to non-Christians. It was an actual well-made, dramatic movie rather than just a preaching device. It didn't need to go out of its way to explain itself because the story of the crucifixion is already well known so whatever effort would normally go into that was spent on enhancing the experience itself. Yeah, that may have boiled down to wonton violence but how else are you supposed to convey the cruelty of it all? It's already been done a hundred different ways but the one time someone makes an effort at a no-holds-barred portayal of the death of Jesus and you have a problem with it? Is there something in it being a Christian film supposed to mean they can't take drastic steps to get the point across?

 

You don't have to like it but it's absolutely not hard to see why others do. Sometimes people want a show, not a sermon, and that's exactly what the Passion of the Christ offered. Its message isn't cheapened by this but rather strengthened. It made non-believers pay attention, if only for a moment, and it showed a powerful rendition of one of the most important aspects of the religion for the rest.

You say it isn't hard to see why others do like it, which I never said that nobody did like it, but it also shouldn't be difficult to see why people like me don't like it. Being someone that doesn't like religion, I can still respect a story from it or lessons or whatever. This movie, to me at least, doesn't do anything of sort. Rather, it is a guilt trip device that is drenched is barbaric violence that is very close to preaching, as it is there to service christians and really nobody else. Again, not saying that non-christians can't enjoy it, but being a non-christian that finds the movie to be appealing, I personally don't see what there is to like. Oh sure, like you said it can get people's attention, but to what end? To simply tell a story or the goal of converting others/appealing to the people who already believe it? The movie holds a 49% on Rotten Tomatoes from critics which means how I view the film is definitely not uncommon, but it does hold a much higher percentage on the user reviews. However if any critic dared to give the movie a bad score they were bombarded with hate, because I guess this is the one movie nobody is allowed to criticize or say is shitty. Above all else though, I don't like christianity much and the fact that such a barbaric film was used by many to justify their beliefs, it doesn't paint a good picture for those beliefs in the first place, at least to me.

Of course no offense is intended with me saying all of that. I may not like religion but that doesn't mean I don't like religious people, unless given a reason. I just feel that if Christianity was not attached to this movie, nobody would like it at all except for hardcore gore hounds. People can like it all they want, I will not protest that even if I have my reasons for disagreeing. I simply hate the film for all I have stated.

The Hateful Eight.

And frankly, everything made by Quentin Tarantino qualifies for my list. I can see that he has a degree of talent, but it's unfortunate that he lets it all drown in his personal proclivities and lack of restraint. He has an obvious penchant for some pretty unsavory stuff, and it permeates everything he makes. He inundates his movies in an over excess of violence, gore, profanity and rape. I can watch a lot of stuff without it bothering me, but too much is too much. I don't intend to watch any of his movies again.

Someone left a video in my door some years ago. It showed how a group of people quartered a human body in a bathtub. The whole procedure, water temperature and incisions to drain the body of blood. How to properly cut into each articulation and dislocate the limbs. The body was cut in five pieces with proffesional tools, arms, legs, torso and head, then bagged.

I brought the video to some of my friends. Two of them are professional medics. The other is a connoisseur of obscure sites in the web. Apparently the video is know by some, and was real. By what they told me, some individuals find titillation in this kind of expression. There is a sexual element commonly associated with some form of psychopathic behavior.

Short after I was approached by some strange individuals, for a time. Then things went back to normal. It is curious that there are records of similar behaviour in my genealogic tree, dating from the 1800, family ancestors from spanish nobility.

I remember my great grandmother used to describe her dreams of the gallows with yearning, and how ecstatic she felt each time people was hanged.
