Has there been any movie or TV show that disturbed you so much you know you could never possibly watch it again? Meet the Feebles came up in the puppet thread and I mentioned that, having seen it once, I could never watch it again. It was just too disturbing.
I saw FEEBLES at an American premiere many years ago and enjoyed it for what it was. Saying that, I certainly can’t fault anyone who feels that it disagreed with them.
I’ve found over the years, after becoming a father, that I have a very low tolerance for movies where children are harmed or put in harm’s way, be it physical or mental. I know they are just actors playing roles, but it takes me right out of the movie and I can’t continue watching. Even Zombieland, which is a fine comedy movie, bummed me out with the scene at the children’s birthday party with the kids turning into zombies and I know it shouldn’t have had that effect. (My wife even made a good point of saying that I should remember that those kid actors probably had a great time being able to play zombies and running around, but it did little to help my mood.)
The non-MST3K version of Mitchell. It sounded like a good idea in my head to figure out what happened to John Saxon and why he disappeared from the film but…it was terrible. Even Larry Miller and the declining years of Lee Majors could not save this film. Although that shouting match with the kids was almost passable. JDB and Linda Evans should not come into contact with each other, watching that gave me nightmares.
There may be people out there who wouldn’t even DARE to watch The Emoji Movie ever again. I never watched the movie myself, but after I saw the trailer, I never wanted to watch it. And I’m glad that I didn’t.
I can’t overcome my disgust and contempt for Mel Gibson enough to ever watch Chicken Run again. Too bad there’s no app which would remove his vocals and replace them with someone who’s not an unrepentant [redacted] on nearly every available level. Also, hard pass on a re-view of A Matter Of Loaf and Death for its constant fat-shaming. Do better, Aardman. I know you can.
My mom told me a few times that she would never, EVER, watch The Exorcist ever again. She was 6 at the time when the movie premiered, and after watching the movie, SHE DIDN’T SLEEP FOR 2 DAYS & NIGHTS. And she hasn’t been watching any horror movies ever since.
Saw Carrie on TV, not even in the theater. I was a teenager with… real issues myself. To this day I can’t face the thought of seeing it again. The performers did too good a job at reminding me of real life. Fortunately, I’d already decided before I saw it that attending the Prom would never be for me.
