I hate movies that make me cry. If I think it's going to be sad, I avoid it. I don't like gory movies and usually avoid anything with the description "coming of age" in it. There are, of course, exceptions to everything.

Never watched a coming of age film i liked, i'll watch anything if it isnt too cliche. As others have said, there are exceptions and in my case these exceptions count for 50% of whatever genre so..... it depends really, oh I don't like dramas made for girls/women 100%
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

You didn't know that it was because the lookouts were distracted by Rose and Jack though, did you? :D


No way! Sneaky perv's.

Anything James Bond. But I might give the latest one a go because I like Javier Bardem.

Jim Carrey ........ the demon spawn of Jerry Lewis and Norman Wisdom :angry-screaming:
Anything gory gives me nightmares as does most material featuring 'talking' animals.
Don't watch TV but, when I did, avoided all 'reality' shows like the plague....ritual humiliation on TV? No ta :hand:

Angela Lansbury :angry-screaming: and Edward Norton :confusion-scratchheadyellow: are two definite putoffs for me.

Irony in that message, since William Windom died of heart failure not too long ago!
