a few for me were:
Trainspotting - I got to the part with the baby and was just so creeped out I had to stop watching it.
Karla- it took me four or five times to actually finish this movie..it's so massively triggering and upsetting and no
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo/any of the following movies (the original swedish versions)- triggering....other then that it was just boring and confusing.
I've had to sit through A Beautiful Mind in my psych class in high school and it made me really uncomfortable. :ermm:

Brokeback Mountain-just found it dull and not interesting
Gone with the Wind- watched the beginning, then got so bored I left my mum and sister to it, then just told them to tell me when it was the famous line at the end, so I watched that bit.

Those are the two films I have stopped watching, but there have been plenty of films I have watched and wished I hadn't bothered at all because they were so bad and boring.

One of the original Star Wars films that they remastered and re-released just before the sequels er,i mean prequels, I think so anyway came out, went to watch one of them and fell asleep, very tedious.

I'm surprised many of you didn't like Slumdog Millionaire, I was expecting to hate it I must admit but I was surprised how gripping it was. When you hear the term feel good film of the year I always want to reach for the sick bag but that was a very dark brooding film which has a glimmer of light at the end.

I struggled to watch Reservoir Dogs when he was slicing the policeman's ear off, I had to cover my eyes at that bit but I did make it till the end of the film.

Elysium. I tried to watch the whole thing and it has to be really bad for me to turn off a film cos I'd watch anything.

star wars - what a load of rubbish.

There are soo many films I’ve not been able to finish and that sentiment seems to be getting worse the older I get.

The lone ranger
Pain and gain
Silver lining
Moonrise kingdom
The godfather
The departed

And most recently “Once bitten”: one of Jim Carreys early films which I had neither the stomach nor the patience to finish.

'Feels So Good' - I watched only a little bit of it, it was terrible.

My family turned off Hancock within the first ten minutes.
I know there have been others, but my brain has decided to take a nap.

I've noticed a lot of people saying Trainspotting... why is that? Is is because it is triggering? Or is it because people just genuinely don't like it? I thought it was amazing myself, but then again, I've never dealt with that sort of situation.

There are plenty I have hated though!

My mother LOVES this movie. She made me watch the entire thing with her the first time. After that I refused.

I'm all for "artsy, atmospheric" movies, but this one bored me to tears/ was incredibly depressing for no apparent reason. I felt pretty awful afterwards.

^ I agree Trainspotting is a great film and a great book.

Amziee 31-01-2014 04:24 PM

Pacific Rim, turned it off after about 20 minutes.
Grave Encounters 2, stopped watching after 30 minutes < I gave it a good chance.
All the Twilight Saga, boring as hell for me .
Rock of Ages, that film is just too awkward to watch, made me cringe.

Selmo 31-01-2014 05:34 PM

The Birds, it takes too long to get into it...
Django, the theme tune is too repetative so it annoyed me

zombiehunter 02-02-2014 02:52 PM

Inglorious bastards

too long it drags on and I got bored with it so decided to watch something else.

I was watching Avatar the other day, not realising it was split up into two DVD's. After finishing the first part, I only just realised the second DVD was missing. So I couldn't watch the second half :(
