Let's face it, there are some pretty graphic movies out there now a days. For example, Ghost Ship. I can't recall the name of the one where a glass door cuts the person down the middle from top to bottom. I'm sorry, but that is a bit much for me. Not something you see every day. With all the real things that happen to people, have we really reached the point where the more absurdly horrendous the torture is the better? You can have it. Give me the movies such as The Bucket List, Mask (the one with Sam Elliot and Cher), or a good comedy. Give me the realism. Give me a story.

Draggie..I love the fantasy ones and comedys, or ones that tell a story or a bit of a thriller to it, but never gore and guts..I cringe at those and have no desire to see them at all.. huggs

I'll watch one occasionally, but not for the gore aspect. If there is a good story line to it is the main thing. The fact that there is so much real pain and there are some really sick people out there seems to be a big issue with me. Don't show me the fake gore. Tell me the truth. I think people don't want to see the real stuff feeling that if they don't know the truth they can ignore it.

There one where a glass door cuts the person in half, that's thirteen ghosts... :) I know what you mean by making up gore just for entertainment, when in reality, there's so much gore going around... I understand what you mean.. But I'm a person who loves watching gore.. I have watched all SAW series except the fifth sequel, because I'm waiting for the DVD.. and I've also watched hostel and other crazy ones, and the worst of all of them would be insanitarium where people are cannibals and even eat their own intestines.. and yes, that is really really gross.. But movies are movies, they're almost always fictional, even the ones that are based on a true story will have some fiction in it.. That's why there's the different genres in movies.. But the thing about it is, I know that people can watch documentaries for gore, but, there won't be much story or drama in it and also there wouldn't be much gore in it because I doubt that they will show real things that are gory to viewers. So to me, it's a matter of choice, what you like, and what you don't.. There's nothing you can say about other movies you don't like, if you don't like it, you cannot force yourself to like it.. Everyone have their own interests.. that's why there's so many different type of movie genres...

Thank you. I couldn't recall the name. See, I was flipping through the channels when I came upon it. So I wasn't intending on watching it. I knew what was going to happen before it did. It was only extremely obvious. It's more the fact that such movies have to go so such extremes than anything. How desensitized are we. Thanks for you comments.

Lol some people are really into that stuff. Not me though, things like that scare the hell out of me and generally make me feel really sick. (I never used to be squeamish at blood but now i am to an extent) So i just stick with my romantic comedys :P horrors terrify me too much
