Good Movies That I Have No Desire To See Again
I’m sure some of you are like me when it comes to searching for something to watch on TV. I will scan through a multitude of channels willing to watch one of my favorite movies for the 100th time. Often I’ll come across films that were highly-acclaimed award winners that I might have liked but for one reason or another have no interest in seeing against. When they are on I move to the next channel. Here are ten in no particular order:
- Elephant Man (1980) - I had trouble making it through the first time.
- The Road (2009)-A man and his son wander through a post-apocalyptic America.
- Brokeback Mountain (2005)-Brutally honest but tough subject matter.
- Leaving Las Vegas (1995)-Nicholas Cage drinking himself to death…”once was enough.”
- Manchester by the Sea (2016)-I never smiled once during the movie and was emotionally drained when it was over.
- The Irishman (2019) - 3 ½ hours long makes it a one-timer.
- Mystic River (2003)-Great cast but very dark.
- Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)-It’s personal. On a very cold winter night in 1980 I drove to South Amboy to see this on one of my first dates with the woman I would marry. I’ll keep that memory alive.
- Schindler’s List (1993)-This epic won 7 Academy Awards and it’s as powerful as they come but once or twice is simply enough.
- (Tie)- 127 Hours, Revolutionary Road, Boys Don’t Cry, 12 Years A Slave, Requiem for a Dream, Full Metal Jacket
