Have you ever been offended by a movie?

Asked by rockfan (14627points) June 9th, 2014

And if you were accompanied by another person, did they feel the same way?

No, I don’t do offended, leave that to the poor wee sensitive souls.

Yes. And I give that big screen a good slapping with my leather gloves. heh heh… :)

Seriously, I don’t think I have ever been offended by a movie. Will search my memory though.

Yes. A group of us went to see a movie, and if I hadn’t been seated next to the wall in a line of friends, I would have walked out. It’s one item on a very short list of life’s regrets.

I was offended by that Dungeons&Dragons movie. The dwarf character is taller than just about all the other characters. What the ass?

There was a film I saw that was… borderline.

It was a comedy about a teenaged boy who accidentally killed himself through autoerotic asphyxiation, and his father covered it up to look like a suicide because he was ashamed.

But it wasn’t a haha, laugh out loud funny comedy… it was a dark comedy. So you want to laugh but you feel guilty about it. I was mostly confused as to how I was supposed to feel at any given moment. It was very uncomfortable.

@Symbeline Please tell me you’ve seen Dorkness Rising.

Yes, I was over “Son of God”, that was a butchered hatchet job that will deceive many.

I’ve been offended by how horrible a movie was or how it raped my childhood memories lol but never actually offended.

“The Secret” was offensively stupid

The Neverending Story II… The first one was pretty cool. The second one was awful. It offended my sensibilities and taught me a little something about movie makers trying to leech as much money out of folks while providing as little quality as possible.

Birth of a Nation makes me so angry I think firebombing theaters might be justified.

Yes. I walked out of “The Simpsons” movie during a gorgeous, summer night on Martha’s Vineyard. When the neighborhood hung nooses over a tree branch to lynch the Simpson family, I left. Lynchings aren’t funny. Nobody should make light of or find humor in such a heinous concept.

Offended? No.

Bored, yes. Upset that I was wasting my time in a stupid movie, yes. Forced myself to fall asleep to escape the stupid movie, yes.

Mimishu1995's avatar

Pretty much what @jca said.

Yes. Although I love the music, I found the story of South Pacific very dated and racist.

I was offended that there were three hobbit movies, two movies of the final Harry Potter book, and two movies from one Twilight novel.

* shakes fist at nothing *

rockfan's avatar

Deathly Hallows needed two movies, otherwise one movie would have felt like a cliff notes version of highlights from the book.

Seek's avatar

I would have been happier with three Hobbit movies that told the actual story instead of adding a bunch of sappy bullshit that doesn’t belong.

My ex-wife and I went to see Blazing Saddles when we were in college. We got to the fart-by-the-campfire scene, and she was utterly grossed out. She made us leave. We were 20 years old at the time. (Maybe that’s why we are divorced!)

I walked out of the movie Solaris – I don’t know if I was offended or embarrassed that I had spent $10 for a ticket to the absolute worst movie ever made. I think that I was offended that they felt the movie was worthwhile when there was no plot.

In spite of the 4–5 star ratings must have been youngster pushing the ratings that seen it on cable, I would say Cloverfield would give it a run for its money of not beat it down silly; such a waste of money, making it and watching it.

Ok got it. Man of Steel offended me. Ruined Superman for me.
