Inspired by the "books not reread" thread -

In my case, Liquid Sky. It bothered me deeply. Don't know why.

Nearly every movie I've ever watched. What an overrated art-form it is. Mind you, some I treasure, but you'll only accuse me of superficiality if I tell you what they are, but here goes. The Pink Panther ones. The Naked Gun ones. Airplane! Blazing Saddles. That's about it. In all other cases the bag of popcorn was worth a damn sight more than the movie, and we have rotten popcorn in Cornwall. Give me a Payne's Poppet any time.

Then there's Dennis Hopper's "The Last Movie", which somehow got released in at least some theaters. Wikipedia describes it as having a "hazily existentialist plot". Why anyone would make even a desperate attempt to describe it as having a plot of any kind is beyond me.

The English Patient - thought it was overblown rot when I saw it, then read the book and realised what a travesty of the original story had been created by Anthony Minghella.

Jump Street 2. It was incredibly crass and unfunny. Seemingly I has seen "Jump Street" previously but for some reason had forgotten what it was like

Cries and Whispers (1972)

Sweet Charity (1969)

Four Friends (1981)

Jeremy (1973)

The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961)

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

My reasons? Most of the above titles were incredibly overrated and absolutely excruciating to sit through. Agony. Pure agony, plain and simple. Some hit too close to home to be entertaining and ended up being somewhat more than uncomfortable as a moviegoing experience. One (guess which!) was just horrendously bad - but not "so bad that it's good."

These were the films that immediately came to mind. If I think of any other titles that elicit equally strong, negative memories, I may inflict them on you. You have been warned.

L'Avventura
La Dolce Vita
Once Upon a Time in the West
The Terror of Tiny Town

Actually I've never seen any of these all the way through. But I tried; more than once in the case of Once Upon a Time.

Definitely, The Shining.
Django Unchained.
The Revenant. (And nothing against Leonardo, either).
Inglorious Basterds.
Top Five. (With Chris Rock - sometimes, he just ain't funny. Maybe he gets funny later; I only watched the first 15 minutes or so.)

Now that I've got thinking about it - I've watched an awful lot of pretty lame movies in my time.

We wandered innocently into a cinema once and paid to watch a film called 'Saw 5'. We hurried out again white-faced three minutes later. The kind lady refunded our money.

I was looking for early works that featured or starred Stephen Dillane, and I stumbled across Déjà vu. The back story is that the woman who commissioned this film bought some big name British stars to play with her on her make-believe movie (funded by her oddball movie producer husband). It's a real stinker. She can't act her way out of a paper bag, and while the rest of them did their best with what they were offered, she brought the whole thing down.

You can look it up on iMDB or Wikipedia if you want to know the rest of the story.

Since the age of approx 12 when I discovered the art house foreign films on BBC2 often showed naked ladies,
I have had a very keen interest in all kinds of 'esoteric' cinema.

I am very tolerant and forgiving of the worst trash 'cult' movies right up through big loud dumb blockbusters,
to slow as paint drying earnest mind befuddling highbrow movies...

Having said that, I have only ever walked out on one film in my entire life..
Back in he late 80s I attended a student cinema club in central London
which presented a film that was so mind & arse numbingly boring I actually began to feel uncontrollable violent anger bubbling up within me,
I needed to get out in the fresh air and kick a door....

It was a Derek Jarman film.. can't remember which one.. but that film defeated my resilience..
..and I have 'enjoyed' a few of his other films..

He did direct "Jubilee" after all...

Most recently I found "Effie Gray" and "Nativity!" too difficult to sit through without breaking my lifelong cardinal rule of not talking during a film.
I just couldn't avoid fidgeting and muttering abusive complaints at the screen, and my wife for making me watch them with her.


Btw.. Liquid Sky was one of my absolute favourite 80s films..

I guess the kinds of films I have most problems with are MOR mainstream 'middle brow' critics choices...
the sorts that win oscars for posh actors..

There are some movies that I wouldn't watch again because I thought they were unbelievably bad, and then there are movies that are too sad for me to ever watch again.

In the first category:
- Valhalla Rising - couldn't decide if it wanted to be an art house movie or a gory action film and failed miserably on both fronts. Wasn't helped by the death metal soundtrack, either.

I'm sure there are others that I've seen that I could add, but that's the one that instantly springs to mind.

In the second category, two that immediately come to mind are:
- Philadelphia - hits too close to home, having had a favorite uncle die of AIDS.
- Grave of the Fireflies - a Japanese animated film about two young orphans set at the end of WW II. Very well done, I highly recommend it, but so incredibly sad that I doubt I could ever watch it again.

Senoufou, it's a whole 'nother thread, what movies could you not watch the first time! I had to leave the one with express in its name and the guy being caught with drugs and going to a turkish prison, I never saw him get there, I left when they caught him. Midnight Express, says The Google.

The Innocents (1961) I was probably in my early teens when I saw it, and found it deeply disturbing.

Some films are so good I can watch them twice in the same week...
some a few weeks or months later when I can persuade the wife she might enjoy if she joins me as I watch again,
some are once every 5 to 10 years favourites like Zulu & Magnificent 7...

Then there are movies I aint seen since 20 to 40 odd years ago
which I can occasionally find time to sit back and enjoy...

One of which is "I gotta horse"

As a Billy Fury fan, I thought it was shit all that time ago, and its more than likely still shit..

But one of the crap free movie channels is starting to schedule it...

the Magdalene Sisters I have tried twice to watch this film and the emotion overcame me. I saw the documentary on TV and that was harrowing enough. The dehumanising injustice incensed me. But the film just cut me up.

I guess I will not manage to see it through.
