Have you ever watched a movie you wished you hadn't?

Passion plum Passion plum
Have you ever watched a movie and wished you hadn't, not because it was bad but for another reason? The two that come to mind for me are "The Ring" and "Where the Wild Things Are". I didn't think either movie was outright bad but I felt "The Ring" left me with no hope and "Where the Wild Things Are" felt extremely depressing. I don't even like to think about either movie.

hmmm, well, 'the fountain' was very well-done but totally depressing, 'the shining' gave me major nightmares for life, 'jaws' had me running into my parents' bedroom as a kid, terrified a shark was going to come through my floor and devour me...

'children of men' was so freaking depressing i really wished i'd never seen it...

and 'enter the void' at points was overwhelmingly graphic and fucked up - i almost couldn't take it.

Stepmom(1998)--hit too close to home since I had just successfully finished the last of my own cancer treatment.

Slingblade--Makes me so sad that humans are so shallow in protecting themselves. Seems like the mentally handicapped are always getting sacrificed for the benefit of "normal" people, even in the damn movies.

Dead Man Walking--Amazing movie!! I am NOT willing to change my mind on how I feel about the death penalty. No matter how sympathetic I feel for the murderer at the end of the movie. Set in stone in my feelings..Yep!!

Marley & Me--I cried all night long!!!

The Lovely Bones--OMG!! Sad, disturbing, tragic, and very much a too real story base...still bothers me.

Ehh. I saw Where the Wild Things are too. I remember reading the book back in school and had high hopes for the movie! I was excited. It reminded me of childhood so I couldn't wait to see it. Sadly your right it's depressing and I wish I didn't watch it! Also there are other movies I wish I didn't watch too, but I guess that happens A LOT. They don't make movies like they use to.

I've regretted watching movies because they were bad, but I don't think there's one that I've regretted seeing for other reasons, even if the movie was disturbing.

Orphan- it didn't bother me because it scared me (hell it's supposed to be scary!) but it just made me uncomfortable, something about the evil murderous child (this on in particular, they don't always bother me) that really bothered me...

I don't mind that, but sometimes I watch movies I don't like that much. But it must be a really awful movie to make me stop watching it.

Only one I can think of is The Perfect Storm. I was so into it, all the problems that face and concurred only to be killed by a monster wave at the end. Did not help that my brother knew some of the crew.

The Human Centipede was just disturbing and for some reason I still watched the 2nd one, more disgusting but not as disturbing as the 1st. I like a good revenge movie but Irreversible left me feeling weird for days. Those are the only ones that have REALLY disturbed in a way I don't enjoy. I love horror and thrillers but those were just too messed up. The Eye, the foreign version, not the American version has been the first movie to scare me since I was a kid. The American version was pathetic.

I watched The Cell when i was 5 or 6... def. not advisable considering that one scene e_e
I've also seen Where the Wild Things Are but it left me with a bittersweet feeling... mostly because I could relate to the kid; escaping in some imaginary world because something is almost too much to handle.

Anyway... Ladder 49 is the only one I've watched that left such an impression I couldn't watch it again. I don't cry in movies, I sometimes get glassy-eyed... but by the end of that one (I saw it in theaters) I was sitting there with wet cheeks.

The same with Grand Torino and Million Dollar Baby but there was always an underlying tone of hope to those movies; even after the negative something good came of it... and they are just so fckn REAL.

The first ten minutes of Full Metal Jacket, or however much of it I watched, was that many minutes too much. Absolutely not my kind of movie.

Lots! I watched the human centipede a few weeks ago. I almost threw up. What a bad movie.

Splice gave me nightmares for months. Good movie though...

The good girl, Gigli, It... I really could go on but I'll stop there.

I forgot one, The Fly. Other than the latest Jackass movie, it has been the only one to make me feel like throwing up.

The Lovely Bones was based off of the Alice Sebold novel of the same title. The book was based off of her own story about rape, the autobiographical version is a book called 'Lucky'.



As for movies I regret: anything with Nicholas Cage in it.

I wouldn't say I never regret what I've watched, but there are movies that I wish I hadn't, not specifically for the reasons provided in the examples. Mainly just because they were bad movies.

The Ring was one of them for me too. Just about every horror movie. My imagination will cripple me someday.

The Yearling (Gregory Peck and Jane Wyman)

Having been a fan of the book, the movie was a great disappointment ... and it's not like the story would have been impossible to portray onscreen, either. But when Ma Baxter came home and hugged Jody ... Christ, that was NOT in the character's personality! Fuck you, 1950's Hollywood, for trying to "redeem" a character because she doesn't fit the ideal image of 1950's motherhood - this was the 1930's in the Florida swamps! Anyway, both leads were bad choices for the characters.

"Paranormal" something. It was SO STUPID! My Man watched about 4 minutes of it, said, "This movie sucks." and fell asleep. I continued to watch, thinking it would get better, only to be disappointed at the predictable, silly, "GOTCHA" crap at the end. Never again.

"The Tree of Life" was THE most pretentious movie I have ever seen in my life. Yes, I want to see, not 2 minutes, but an HOUR of pictures of sea caves and pictures from the Hubble Telescope, in the middle of a movie, with swelling music for no obvious reason. Then live and dead people wandering around on a beach (with a DOOR, OOOOO, how intriguing! (heavy sarcasm)) with no explanation of how it relates to the actual part of the movie which had plot, character development etc. It was a waste of 2+ hours of my life.

My husband and I completely avoided "The Human Centipede" because.... we actually have instincts. Did anyone really think it wouldn't be horrible, gross and disturbing? WHO likes shit like this? Couldn't tell how disturbing it would be from the trailer? Really.

Just a few horror movies, Mirrors, The Unborn, and The Wailer.
It's not often but sometimes certain things in horror movies stick with me.
Mirrors and The Unborn had me afraid to look in a mirror for a while and The Wailer had me going into dark rooms flashlight first and scared.

I keep telling myself it's just a movie but when it comes to everyday things you encounter on a nearly hourly basis it can be a bit frightening anyway.

That said though, all three are great movies and I still watch them often.
Movies like that really only bother me the first time so these days they're still scary but I'm over the initial lingering fear. xD
