Are there any films you know are probably very good, but have no intention of ever seeing, simply based on subject material or genre?
Million Dollar Baby - someone spoiled the ending to me, I am not a fan of boxing, and it just seems so depressing so have no intention to ever watch it.
Grave of the Fireflies** - supposedly a classic film, but also mentioned as one of the saddest films of all times - pass. Same goes for Dancer In the Dark.
The Hours - great cast, great reviews, but watching a film about three suicidal lesbians? Uh, no.
Letters From Iwo Jima - don’t much like war films, even though I know this is more than just a war film.
Beautiful Life** - Roberto Benigni was so annoying in his press junket through the US and his Oscar win, I never want to see the film even though I have heard it was great.
So, any “great films” you have no intention of ever seeing, and why?
