KYGOTC's thread about "pee" and JASE's comment got me to wondering we all know about "feel good movies," 
BUT HOW ABOUT FEEL BAD MOVIES??

I will only name LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT the "inspiration" for this thread. If you've seen this film, you will know what I mean about "feel bad" movie.  One sitting thru LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, and you're left feeling a kind of "ugh" feeling.

I was just recommending this film to someone: Requiem For A Dream.  Fantastic, well made film but it's one that makes you want to commit suicide after watching.

Last House on the Left annoyed me more than disturbed me.

Anywho, I recently saw Funny Games (original version) and it's an unpleasant experience, although I don't think it's a very good film.

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance is a very well made film, but it's so bleak and brutal that it's kind of a bummer.  Oldboy and Lady Vengeance are great movies and have similar effects but aren't quite so hopeless.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Both BULLY and HAVOC leave me feeling like I need a long shower, Anne Hathaway's general hotness notwithstanding.

COMBAT SHOCK-though a well made z-budget film...it's utterly depressing.
.MANIAC (Joe Spinelli...not Dwan Esper)-hard to stomach this. NOT a party film.
.I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE-the rape scene is waaaaaaaay too sadistic and long....ugh.
.Most nazi exploitation films...you know the type...
. alot of asian torture films are too much for me....

Gore doesn't upset me...but torture...dragged out on and on...ugghhhh....not entertaining. Just depressing.

Cronenberg's CRASH was mentioned...I agree...ug!

Straw Dogs definitely showcases the ugly side of humanity as well.  Completely agree on Requiem for a Dream although that's brilliantly done IMO. 1984 also in many ways is one of the most depressing films ever produced.

All that Jazz - Entertaining, what got out of it was this story about a guy seeking & finding sympathy, even though both he  & the sympathizers know he doesn't deserve it.

Felini's Casanova - Albeit, I must admit to bias. I was annoyed that they took out all the dirty stuff.

Agreed

I would have to agree with some others on here: Bad Lieutenant and I Spit on Your Grave.


And...

What's that sound?

Is it the rush of fans of this film as they escape from their asylum to defend it?

I believe it is. TongueOut

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?


« Reply #12 on: April 03, 2008, 07:14:26 AM »

Pan's Labyrinth. I felt it was unnecessarily brutal. I know it gets a lot of love, and it has its moments, but it is definitely a downer movie. Gilliam's Tideland covers some of the same ground, and while I actually cried a bit during it, it at least offered some positive moments. PL just seemed intent on crushing a little girl.

Vulgar.

Truly unpleasant.

Speaking of ISOYG, They Call Her One Eye is another one that's leaves me with an unpleasant taste in my mouth.

ALL THAT JAZZ is one of my favorite movie musicals, though apparently not in my top 15 or so...  Lookingup 
Definitely not a feel good movie, though it has feel good moments, I don't think it's really a feel bad movie... (maybe feel sad...)

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
