I am so disappointed in all of you. Not a single person mentioned Django Unchained. Actually all your choices are great, but this one is one of my favorites. Quentin even gets to be blown off his own movie. Hehe.

Waltz faces off against DiCaprio in Django.

Priceless.

Why am I reminded of the Mel Brooks movie-"Young Frankenstein" when Igor put the brain from "Abby Normal" into the monster.

InnerGorilla, Sorry to disappoint you, but I abhor violent movies. And horror films. I have a visual, somewhat photographic memory, and retain sharp memories of horrific scenes. As a teenager I had recurrent nightmares after seeing a violent horror film.

As a big fan of the Coen brothers, I did enjoy "Fargo" (hilarious) and "No Country for Old Men" (beautifully filmed). "No Country for Old Men" is widely praised as the Coen brothers' finest movie.

I still shudder at the ruthless hit man played by Javier Barden. Javier Bardem became the first Spanish actor to win an Academy Award for "No Country for Old Men."

My refusal to watch violent movies puts me out of the mainstream of Americans, who flock to violent, shoot-'em-up blockbusters.

My current partner resembles Javier- he was not yet retired when No Country was 1st released. Quite a few of his co-workers saw the movie & the resemblance at the time.

After that, his co-workers went out of their way to be extra nice to him, LoL

I guess they were afraid he owned a nail gun.

I am with Literate Hiker.

Have walked out of some violent movies and spent the first 15 mins of Saving Private Ryan with my fingers in my ears and my eyes closed.
This is back when I was married and trying to do things together. He liked reading and watching violent / action entertainment.
Not my thing. He did not like my tastes in movies either.



NORMAL....????

^^ Normality is greatly overrated.
I am not interested in normal or average........... B O R I N G.

Have never gone out with the intention of making a female friend.
My female friends and I have all met in real life and found that we had similar interests and mind sets.

Just got a load of this thread. I am the subject of post 21 Thank you for re-posting and for Halcyon for standing up for me against Blondie and Bluemoon. (not that I've read every post.) I have no idea why Blondie slammed me accusing me of misrepresenting myself and why she stalks my facebook. She comes up with the most off the wall BS and comes back on here like she is little miss innocent. As I said Blondie, I know you are 'retired' but you really should cut the high school crap. I sure hope the likes of you is not 'normal'.

I liked Django Unchained, especially the ending, but it's not my favorite. As for violence, I can't watch a lot of parts of movie, I actually hold my hand in front of my face like a child, but that doesn't take away from a movie for me, there is a lot of violence in life, I don't care for Pollyanna versions. We all have our own opinions.

This is a dead forum, the rules are not regularly enforced - but theres always a fair chance to scrub the thread. You know - if you're the hall monitor type.

That is amazing...that we talked about both here, without trying to connect the two.

So that body in the chipper-shredder didn't give you nightmares? Where's the photographic memory on that scene?! :)

The only movies I'll like usually only end up liking that are "violent, shoot-'em-up" would be war movies with a good story, that don't reside on such scenes, but do that as part of the realistic story. I think if something's Truly defined as a "violent, shoot-em-up" -- it's just riding off action/violence and no real story.

But if someone likes those movies while the other person doesn't, that shouldn't be a factor in a relationship, platonic or non-platonic. I could see someone being sensitive to violence -- ok. But if they can handle the body thru the chipper-shredder in Fargo, they won't be running away from every rated R movie. :)

Literate hiker

Like you I dont get why so many people like violence and other horror stories. I loathe it, it makes me physically ill and I avoid anything like that, like the plague. Wont watch the news now either, all too graphic and in your face. Perhaps other people are desensitised or it all keys into their basic primitive natures. I dont know.

I had a conversation with my kids about horror movies. They noticed that I had seen a lot of the old ones but not the newer movies. I told them that I liked horror movies when it was more about suspense. Now. TMI. Too much gore.

Horror movies have definately taken a down turn with the emergence of gore-porn genre. The old style horror movies are still around but they get lost in the shuffle of gore ones most times.

I prefer psychological thrillers- the human mind is the scariest thing...

look at some of the socks on the forums, for instance...

"Silence of the Hands" (Silence of The Lambs)

"Typo" (Psycho)

"Halloweenies" (Halloween)

The Night of the Hunter always gets me, the slow pace hunting those children, the sight of Shelley Winters floating in the car underwater, he hair waving along, that deep voice of Robert Mitchum, that was scary when I was a kid because it seems like something real that could happen. Sure The Thing, The Creature from the Black Lagoon or The Tingler scared me too but you could at least tell yourself they were real they were made up things.

Things that are gory can be too much, like I said I hide my eyes a lot, but I do get into things like The Walking Dead because I do like that idea of killing them off, the evil. Most old movies have a scene where the good guys kill the bad guys and you feel victory is at hand even in the worst of situations.

why do some people prefer some forms of violent entertainment and not others? Like all other entertainment, we like what releases certain chemicals in our brain. Some like thrillers b/c its like riding a physical roller coaster.

I have to say, I don't like when "normal behavior" means average behavior. Last night I went to dinner, and got a waiter who was not just intelligent, but able to get into the heads of his customers and consider their needs before they had to ask. Most normal/average people are too self absorbed or not enough curious about what goes on outside their heads. They can follow rules, but they might not be able to think independantly for individual situations.

For general situations, tho, that's not bad.

Anyone who likes thriller movies should watch Night of the Hunter. So what if it's a black-and-white from a lifetime ago - it's still great even by today's standards. No video game body parts flying or blood anywhere - just a good ol' fashioned freaky scary.
