Movies you would never demo

I didn't know how to describe this thought in a short subject. As an antithesus to the other thread about what movies do you like to take scenes from to demo, I'd like to ask are there any movies you would not do this to?

What I mean is, are there any movies you won't seek out scenes from and play back alone outside the context of watching the whole film? I don't know if anyone else in the world feels this way about any movie. But I feel a sort of descecration to my favourite movies if I do this. Only certain movies however. Saving Private Ryan is one. The opening scene is dramatic and gut wrenching and has a killer soundtrack (although I've never heard the DTS version). But I simply won't bring myself to play that scene alone. It feels wrong. I'm sure I feel the same for other movies but I can't think of any offhand.

pardon? oh...I see...sorry.

I'll pull any scene out of any film anytime I'm feeling like it or anytime I feel the need to share a certian scene or part of a film with either myself or someone else. however, 95% of the time....I watch films/dvds in their complete form. enjoying a scene though...does not give dis-respect to the film or it's director. it may be a scene which is needed for research and study...which in it's own way is nothing but respect.

now I'm confused too so there.

The Blair Witch Project

Not because the film sucks - I like the film - but because it's fullscreen, grainy as hell, with poor sound.

Hmmm that's quite confusing because I've showed my friends some of the lower quality DVD for some good/bad comparison a couple years ago.

I'm not too big on demoing the porn. Tends to scare off the women.
Some men too, something about a five foot tall vagina really scares a lot of guys.

That reminds me, I still have to pick up Talk to Her.
