I just finished watching harsh times and personally had a hard time with it. You knew the lead character (Bale) was messed up but thought in the back of your mind that maybe he'd get his shit straight....Wow....This movie totally caught me off guard.

The only movie that made me cry (I hate to admit) AND made me really think about our humanity as a society was the Elephant Man...

I don't know...The part that bothered me in that scene is when up'em was to chicken s*&t to go upstairs and help his brother...Then the Nazie just walks by him on the stair case knowing he's nothing to fear...That is war...You learn to kill or be killed.

That was tough too, but I still think it was tougher to watch him ease the knife into his chest.

Great movie...

My youngest just watched my dog skip and really didn't like it like I thought she would....Apparently the scene in which the kid kicks skip at the game and when skip gets hit with the shovel ruined it for her..She's an animal lover.

It's compelling but disturbing because the main character (Kevin Bacon) is a convicted child molester recently released from prison. The other main characters are the cop (parole officer?) that really, really wants to kill him and the new girlfriend that enjoys a relationship with him even though he tells her about his past.

It's an outstanding film, but not for everyone. It made me and my wife both sympathetic to a man who was a child molester. It's a weird feeling because you hate him because of what he did, but find that you feel sorry for him.

Bacon did an outstanding job in the role.

The hardest movie I ever watched was Envy. I saw it at the movie theater. It starred two of my favorite actors Ben Stiller and Jack Black. All I wanted to see was a good comidy but it turned tragic. Half way through the movie I had to piss, but I was afraid I would miss something funny so I didn't get up to go to the bathroom. I sat there uncomfortable for the longest time, the pressure of having to go to the bathroom, something funny would happen I was sure. It turned out to be a sad movie about two good friends becoming enimies and then there was the dead horse it was so sad. I cried did not laugh, oh I had to piss.

The ending of the Mist was dumb. You wouldn't do what he did that quick.

Stranded, lost, out of gas, surrounded by monsters, situation hopeless? What more would you require?

Um, maybe you look for gas before that? Or maybe try and wait a day to see if something happened, like something that actually did end up happening?

Yeah, but then they could have shown them trying to get gas or something before it came to what it did. If it was my kid I would have waited until the absolute last possible second and the reason why was because of what happened. I didn't think they did that. I don't even think they let the battery run down and listen to the radio to see if there was a signal. If you like it, fine. I didn't.

He had a pistol and four rounds. What good would that do against something a hundred feet tall or a horde of those spider things? Better to take a bullet to the head than be eaten alive by some vile mist beast.

"seven pounds" wasn't exactly pleasant to watch.

i mean you could see the train coming the entire picture and then it just runs your ass over ... no muss, no fuss.


will smith brings the same "odd" personality to his character that he had in "i am legend" it's weird to watch.

I not only thought "Seven Pounds" was a great movie, but I definitely handed in my man card at this one. Some major tearing up was happening at the end.

That was my reaction, too. The monsters would have to be bearing down on me to do that. In movie time, it "felt" too soon, too quick for something so drastic.

I actually preferred the ending of the novella. IIRC, King actually liked the movie ending, so who am I to argue? But still ...

I will add a couple to the list:

Kids - Especially the end, this movie stuck with me for weeks. I believe this is one of Chloe Sevigny's (Bale's assistant in American Psycho) first movies. Without spoiling anything, let's just say it doesn't give you much hope for the future.

Elephant - This was an HBO film that was basically a re-enactment of Columbine, albeit in a different fictional high school. It goes really deep into the lives of the kids who turned into killers. The scenes where they start the killing spree are chilling to the bone and very well done, imo.

If/when they ever make The Long Walk into a movie, that one could be a tough one to watch. Just an utterly simple premise (walk or die) but just bonechilling how he writes it. And the last line in the book (no I won't spoil it) is freaking perfect.

The hardest movie I ever watched was Envy. I saw it at the movie theater. It starred two of my favorite actors Ben Stiller and Jack Black. All I wanted to see was a good comidy but it turned tragic. Half way through the movie I had to piss, but I was afraid I would miss something funny so I didn't get up to go to the bathroom. I sat there uncomfortable for the longest time, the pressure of having to go to the bathroom, something funny would happen I was sure. It turned out to be a sad movie about two good friends becoming enimies and then there was the dead horse it was so sad. I cried did not laugh, oh I had to piss.:spock: You should have just went to take your piss. That movie sucked ass.

Funny Games - a 1997 German flick about a young family of 3 who suffer a home invasion at their vacation house. The kids who have captured them indulge in torture. I couldn't watch it much past 45 minutes.

this movie was weird because it was all of the before and after but not very much of the actual killing. as i like to explain it "it had a beforemath and an aftermath, but no math!"



there are certain things that are hard to watch for completely different reasons. i.e. the scene in Swingers when Mike is calling the girl's answering machine over and over. it's painful. There are a lot more like that but that's the one that always comes to mind.

No joke.

Happiness is absolutely the most uncomfortable movie I've ever seen. Just harsh.

I actually bought the movie before I'd seen it because the cast was so outstanding. Watched it and swore I'd never watch it again. But the movie is brilliant. Just absolutley brilliant, so I couldn't get rid of the DVD.

My friend & old roommate (Mcan actually) wanted to watch it one day so I sat down and watched it with him. Yeah, the movie's just as hard to watch the second time around.

I'd also have to rank Storytelling up at the top of my list. It's another film by the writer/director of Happiness. It's easier than Happiness, but just barely. The first 40 minutes of Storytelling just makes you want to vomit. Again though... brilliant movie. :)
