The Daily Mishmash hosts a regular Movie Madness Carnival (although I have to say that this July's carnival is only the second one!) and so I thought that I'd join in with this one while I get this blog up and running properly!
The idea is to post on the subject of Movies, or Films if I wish to be properly British as we don't call them movies on this side of the pond! ;-)
I think that now is the time to come clean and admit that there are some films that I just will not watch; and that's not because of any moral or righteous reason but because there are some films that I find embarrassing!!
And not embarrassing in a sexy way cos I like those films! But embarrassing in a cringeworthy "oh my god why is he doing that" way, particularly in a film like American Pie! Or embarrassing because the character is being made to look a total fool or are being embarrassed themselves. I started to watch The Break-up a few weeks ago and just couldn't get past the first half hour, I can't even remember why I eventually turned it off but I kept wincing and cringing and then had to turn it off!
For the same reason I wont watch films like Austin Powers or other films of a similar humour - I just can't do it! That's not to say that I don't like funny films, I do, but it has to be of a particular humour, which is anything funny as long as it's not puerile. And you'd think that the British sense of humour is supposed to be on the slightly smutty side, well not this girl, although I have to say that I am quick to see the double entendre!
And so I ask you guys - are there any kinds of films (sorry, movies) that you just can't bring yourself to watch!?
