For me it's A Clockwork Orange.

I'm a huge Kubrick fan and this is clearly a great film, but I found it deeply disturbing and will probably never watch it a second time.

8mm with Nicholas Cage. I wish I had never laid eyes on it.

I also don't want to watch Clockwork Orange again. It wasn't disturbing to me. It was more like irritating.

I thought Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet was excellent, and I had to watch it for my darlin' Kate Winslet as Ophelia, but that sucker was four hours long! That ain't happenin' again.

Not a great film, but I really enjoyed Forrest Gump when I saw it in the theater. Then, when I was walking back to the car in the parking lot, I thought, "What the hell was I thinking?" It was like scarfing down junk food and then having massive indigestion on the way home. Haven't seen it since.

First time i watched The Killing Fields at the theater (80s?) it really got to me.
The music was really getting into my head (except Imagine, that was a cheap shot IMO). I noticed i was gripping both sides of my seat with all my strenght. Boy, i was tense.
Most definitely not what you would have expected from old sweet Mike Oldfield. I do not consider his regular stuff creepy at all. Please don’t bring up The Exorcist theme, it’s all but scary.

Might not , very likely not have to the same effexct on rewatch but i remember having to tell my hands to relax and let go of the seat.

Private Ryan and Titanic. I have a pretty vivid imagination and those two films hit me hard.

Can't think of one.

What I consider "great film", I would watch again, no matter subject matter or content.

It is the unforgettable, mediocre ones I would do without.

Great movie, but yeah...not exactly one I want to watch again.

As already mentioned, yes, no more:

Schindler's List
Saving Private Ryan


I don't consider Citizen Kane a great film but not interested in ever seeing it again, either.

One of the best movies ever made IMO. While I can understand your position on it, I rewatch it every Easter.

It's a good reminder.

Exactly what my thought process was on this, oddball. Great minds..... Razz



"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
