Bruno should have gotten NC-17, when I went there lots of kids with their parents. It made it really awkward when the really bad parts came on. Bruno was the funniest movie I've seen since Borat, but you might get offended by the 'shock humor' parts if you're not prepared. And you should watch Borat or Ali G clips on Youtube first before watching it, to get to know what to expect from Sasha Baron Cohen and understand what he does.

The first Saw was the only good one, it had a very interesting plot with a nice twist in the end. Did you see the Saddam Hussien torture vids? The less bloody parts are on Youtube, but I still couldn't get past 30 seconds of the beatings and people being thrown off buildings. It's weird because I was really curious to see them but it probably bothers me even more than you, I'm really sensitive to it.


I was pretty young when those torture videos were released, so I guess it’s not surprising that I’ve never seen them. But, dude, seriously. I cried when I saw the video of Neda being killed. Although, I did watch some video footage caught during the Hamas coup and they were throwing people of buildings. That’s terrifying….I didn’t watch them hit the ground, hit the red X in the top right real quick. Made my testis crawl up into my chest cavity just seeing them nudged off. And i watched some vids of Palestinians caught in the white phos during the Gaza fight. Also really bad.

Wow you might be even more sensitive than me. You think you could take just watching the beatings part of the torture vids? I'm really sensitive to it, but I try to watch as much as I can because I wanna desensitize myself to it. Now the stuff in the movies doesn't bother me, but anything real is still very difficult.

You want to know some hard shit to watch it had my girlfriend in my room crying. It isnt torture but watching someone get their head cut off with a dull knife. Man I watched some be headings of Arabs who capture soldiers and the like and cut their head right off. It is bad you can hear the guy screaming as his neck is being slit.

I’m sure I could. If it came down to it I could’ve watched the Neda tape without getting all teary. I don’t want to be that way, and I don’t –want- to see that kind of stuff. I don’t understand how anyone can enjoy seeing that stuff. I guess I could watch the beating parts. One of my favorite movies is Green Street’s Hooligan…but, the idea of real life suffering…. I like to think I’m just compassionate, but everyone around here says I’m queer. *Shrug.*

I’ve been watching Bruno clips. He’s so funny! He’s my hero! But what’s with his obsession with Hitler?

You should watch some Ali G clips, it's ingenious comedy. Remember, everyone thinks the interview is serious, only Ali G is acting:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P842Tmi6lrc


And I think you should try to desensitize yourself to the reality of the torture and suffering of people that goes on all the time. There's so much of it in the world, you should try to get used to it and stop being surprised by it, but that doesn't make it any less horrible, it just means you won't cry every time you see it. Now I can see the torture vids and just sort of shake my head and be silent instead of crying. But I still feel alot of pain inside while watching them and I'm always horrified at the beginning of them.

My friend showed me one of those vids and I was silent for an hour after watching it. It's not as bad as you would think and it happens really quickly, but it's still very disturbing.

is there any form of entertainment with gore movies/videos?
im really confused why other people love watching those films.. it's just like very inhuman. my brother, who is a surgical doctor himself, refuses to watch such movies. he cant tolerate such brutality and violence, though he sees such in operating rooms often.

I think grotesque violence in movies is terrible, and it disturbs me that America is one of the few countries that tolerates them. It's also annoying that people go crazy and starting throwing petitions around whenever they see a breast or genitalia on screen because it will supposedly scar the children, but seeing people getting horribly mutilated is no big deal and is ok for kids to watch. It's pretty stupid, at least sex is healthy and necessary and something that most people will experience in their lives, and everyone has seen boobs and genitals before, so I don't get why people go to such lengths to censor it without caring if their kids sees some guy get skinned alive.

@ cuddlebuns Indeed, the hypocrisy in the censorships of the media is definitely ludicrous.

@ leilockheart I actually fear that it is more humane than we'd like to admit to ourself. Torturing others, watching others in pain was legal just a few decades ago, and is in fact still legally viable in certain countries with more primitive human rights, or better said..with no hint of human rights.
Which is kind of reminiscent of some novels of authors from a few decades, centuries ago and how they always describe the scenes before and after the convicted criminal gets hung, or beheaded on the centre court. Seemingly the commonality is getting a real rise out of seeing how someone else has to suffer. They would even go so far as to throw stones, and everything they can find, and mock the convicted one. Though, I would say that for some it might be an understandable reaction if, for example, said criminal was a serial murderer, but sadly it doesn't really seem to matter to the folk what kind of crime said individual committed, the commonality still haunts the convicted criminal in mockery, and denigrates and takes away said individual's basic human rights.

My rhetorical question would be: Have you ever observed children? Kids bullying a weaker kid doesn't seem to be an exception at all, and this no matter what century we're talking about. Said children do really enjoy hurting, annoying and mocking the weaker individual. I guess there are various factors involved as of why children would do something atrocious like that. For once, boredom, and sheep-effect (one starts; everyone joins in), prejudice towards anyone new, and different - may it be due to different physical appearance, or behaviour, etc. - all of these seem to be enough good for kids to join the practice.
Now, thinking about how children are our seedlings...it really does ring a bell.
