Have You Ever Been Offended by a Movie?

In conjunction with the most recent trailer for the George W. Bush movie W, Yahoo! Movies has put together a list of the five most controversial movies of the past decade. They include:

  • The Passion of the Christ (2004)
  • Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)
  • The Brown Bunny (2004)
  • Brokeback Mountain (2005)
  • The DaVinci Code (2006)

I know that these movies offended plenty of people, for a variety of reasons. Have you ever been offended by these movies or any others?

CG - I'm with you. And that is why I pretty much ONLY rent (Except for certain franchises). I'd much rather watch a sucky movie for 3.00 than for 20 (After popcorn and such LOL)

there is a difference between thinking a movie sucked and being offended by it. I have never been offended by a movie but I have been to many that just plain stunk and i was mad that i wasted my time and money.

Not offended per se, but for some reason I found The Black Dahlia truly degrading to women.

All M. Night Shyamalan movies. They always suck you in with the trailer, and then each one is TERRIBLE. I learned my lesson and never went to see his lastest one because i'm still angry about the 10 other hours of my life that i've wasted watching his other movies.

Who cares?! If you don't like what a movie is about, don't give it your money and support by watching it!! In my opinion, though, people really need to be more open minded! Whats The Brown Bunny (2004)? Never even heard of it. I'll look it up.

to be honest, i can't say that i've really been offended by a movie - and if i think that i might be, then i just choose not to go see it. i've learned that production companies aren't out to make EVERYONE happy and if they inadvertantly upset someone - then they are ok with that. (for the most part). it's JUST a movie...right?

Allyace: I see your point, but I just had a horrible visceral reaction to that much carnage. I'm okay with feeling unsettled or wanting to cringe--nearly vomitting isn't entertaining for me.

I thought The Cell was super offensive. I actually walked out of the theater during one of its many sex/torture/objectification scenes.

Shannon -- The parts of Crash that make you uncomfortable and want to cringe are to me what makes it such an amazing movie. As for the W movie, I haven't seen the movie but the previews look horrible. They turn him into a cartoon and it is just going to piss people off. You could have made a completely accurate movie about Bush and it would have made the point (i.e., that he shouldn't have had the job in the first place and is a bumbling baffon). It looked more like an SNL sketch than an Oliver Stone movie... I think Stone will come to regret doing it so soon. Something like that is always better when you have a few years to step back and have perspective. But like the person said above, I won't be seeing it b/c I have no desire to relive the horror that has been his presidency.

It didn't offend me, but the rape scene in A Clockwork Orange made/ makes me ill.

I've never been offended by a movie in any real way, aside from the fact that I'm an aspiring screenwriter and it offends me that some of this garbage is getting produced when my scripts barely stand a chance of getting read, but anyway... Although I love the movie, Love Actually irks me like no other in the "American girls are dumb sluts" scenes.

I'm offended by all the spoof movies they've come out with recently. I am offended that people are still going to see them, so people keep making them.

Flight 93 or whatever the name of that awful too-soon 9/11 movie was... it was completely racist and SO SO terrible.

I loved Natural Born Killers, and Fear and Loathing for that matter. The blow job was real in the Brown Bunny, maybe thats why its the best scene. :rotfl:

I hate mindless movies like the Scary Movies, Epic movie, Disaster movie, etc. Don't even bother with them. They don't amuse me. I liked Sex and the city and Wedding Crashers. There were about 15 women over the age of 60 in the SATC movie. I was shocked. They didn't the nude scene, however, it was stupid. I was offended by Superbad. Got through about 5 minutes or so and realized I must just be too old for that anymore. It was just too much profanity and vulgarity and it wasn't funny to me.

I agree about violence being the most disturbing aspect of movies. I had to get up leave while watching Cronenberg's "Crash"--it made me almost physically ill.

It might sound lame, but that scene in Borat, when he and the fat guy are fighting naked was too much for me. Actually, that whole movie was controversial for me. I understand is a parody, but I think that some subjects were treated disrespectfully (mmm... hello, Judaism?). I prefer Sasha Baron Cohen´s voice on Madagascar, or his silly portrait of ganster Ally-G. Not my type of humor.

Mesayme - 20 years old and you wouldn't let your sister see it? common! it wasn't that bad! i took my 17 year old sister and my aunt is organizing a girls night to view it again with my 15 year old cousin and my sister!

When I was young I worked at a video chain and let me tell you.. ALOT of people returned The Crying Game mad as hell! That movie offended people who never saw it coming. That doesn't happen these days since blogs and word of mouth travels faster to warn people from seeing a controversial movie. I remember people walking out of the first 15 minutes of Natural Born Killers and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas too.

I voted Yes.. but not because of any of the movies above.. the gross out teen movies, Saw/Captivity movies are more offensive to me than Passion of the Christ or Fahrenheit 9/11.. And I am actually really looking forward to W. Pre-screeners actually say that it makes you fell more sympathetic to Bush. Considering I detest the man and his disapproval rating is 70%.. I would like the opportunity to feel sympathetic to the idiot. It looks like a comedy but I think it is suposed to be a drama.. cannot WAIT!!!!
