Movies that make you upset
« on: June 01, 2013, 02:00:02 AM »
What movies make you upset enough to leave the theater (or throw the remote, smash the videotape, kick the dog, etc)? 

Leave your shticky answer if you must but I would like to know your serious opinion.

Almost every horror movie, but especially Drag Me to Hell.

Goodfellas scares me.

North, because it's so terrible and hateful.

And I know it doesn't count, but most sitcoms, because every character is stupid and petty and obnoxious.

haha.  A Dirty Shame.  John Waters' Desparate Living was a masterpiece even though it had two little kids playing doctor.  It just seems innocent no big deal, but that dirty shame movie....I feel a flash of anger just thinking about it.

I left Cabin Fever because I went to it to see a horror movie, since it was billed as a horror movie.  It was not a horror movie.  I don't even really know what it was supposed to be.  That's when I started hating Peter Jackson too.  He was quoted as saying
it was the horror movie, horror movie fans were waiting for". or something similar to that in the commercials.  All the gross out stuff they were going for doesn't bother me in the least so it was honestly a pointless movie to me.

Paranormal Activity-shakey cam that was way over shakey.
Exorcism of Emily Rose and  that 2nd Star Wars prequel-upset might not be the right description, but I fell asleep at both-the only times I've ever slept in a theater.

Saving Private Ryan.

The scene where the translator Upham fails to save Mellish in a knife fight with a German soldier. The fucking coward just stands there cowering on the stairs.

Can't watch the movie because of this one scene, it pisses me off so much.

(And I totally agree with you tejava joe on Trainspotting. I've only been able to watch that movie once.)

I agree with your sentiments but that was probably my favorite scene in the movie.  Everyone made a big deal about the first 20 minutes but that scene was really powerful too.

Misery- really one of the few good movies based on anything written by Stephen King, but the psycho female stalker struck a chord with me and I've never been able to watch it a second time.

Tideland- far and away Terry Gilliam's best movie since maybe 12 Monkeys, but thoroughly depressing.

Nightmare on Elm Street 2.  I've ranted about it elsewhere already, but the more I think back on that movie the more it pisses me off to have to include it in a series I otherwise enjoy greatly.

I actually fell asleep during Silver Linings Playbook, and that's my new favorite movie (it edged out long standing favorite One Hour Photo).  Not because it's boring; I was just really tired that day.

Only one that mildly tolerable for me would be West Side Story
