    Schindler's List is the only movie I felt I had to be emotionally "ready" to go watch. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to be happy or sad when I went. I can't remember now which way I chose. I just remember we decided, "It's now or never. Let's go." Glad I went, of course, but it sure was draining.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Agreed with everyone's thoughts on Schindler's List.

    Eden- I never read the Diary of Anne Frank in school.
    I have read it though, but it wasn't an assignment.

    One of the toughest movies for me to watch (though we own it and I've watched it several times) is "It's My Party". If you want to see me basically , then play that movie.

    And I still haven't seen Schindler's List...

    Just not one you can watch over and over.
    I agree Miss F.
    It's so sad to think such a brutal senseless act was committed.

    I;ve thought of another one, Midnight Express.
    The things that guy went through in that prison don't bear thinking about.

    Very true, Fluff... Hillary Swank definitely deserved her Oscar for such a convincing portrayal...

    As much as I loved American Beauty, Annette Bening was not even in the same league as Hilary Swank.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    I absolutely agree, Miss F... Annette Bening was brilliant in American Beauty, and if Hillary Swank hadn't been in the group of nominees, she should have (and probably would have) won. However, as great as AB was, she couldn't touch HS's performance...

    The only movie I've not made it through in the last 10 years was Moulin Roiuge. I made it through 20 minutes and couldn't stand anymore of it.

    I don't watch any movies that I view as having a subversive message that goes against American values. I would never see another Mel Gibson movie, for instance, because of all the anti-gun posters in the last Lethal Weapon movie. Here's a guy who makes his living by portraying gun violence, yet he's against the very tools that earn his paychecks? He is not from this country and has no clue about how our ancestors fought and died to gain the rights we take for granted today. I respect every line of the Constitution and I just can't financially support anyone who doesn't.
    It's ok if actors have feelings about politics. Just don't sneak it into the movies we pay to go see.
    Tons of movies sneak in the same kind of crap about all sorts of issues. I go the movies to relax and take my mind off the world. I do not want to be beaten over the head with political issues.

    So anything with hidden, leftist politics won't see my money. I'll wait until it's free on television. I'd say the same thing if they had extreme right wing stuff but those just don't exist in Hollywood.

    I also don't see slasher movies that are all about the violence. They are just stupid. I I want to see senseless violence I can turn on the evening news.

    Oh, I probably won't see Olaris because the sight f George Clooneys naked buttocks might intimidate me
