Anything you won't watch?
 
I know that some people are open to watching just about anything, while others don't watch certain genre's (i.e. westerns) or movies by certain directors (i.e. woody allen) or even actors (i.e pauly shore).

What don't you watch (if anything)?

I don't watch the following genre's:

Anime

I don't watch movies with the following actors:

Adam Sandler
Tim Allen

Anything with Woopie Goldberg (except for Star Trek)

Geofferson 12-21-04 03:51 PM

No Anime for me either.

Sondheim 12-21-04 03:59 PM

I'm pretty much willing to watch anything once, though I do have a certain limit for the amount of gratuitous violence and nudity I can take.

Groucho 12-21-04 04:01 PM

I shy away from snuff and kiddie porn. Since that wasn't mentioned by the previous posters, we can all assume they enjoy both genres.

JEStinson3 12-21-04 04:03 PM

No hermaphrodite porn for me. This includes the Chyna video.

(PS, no snuff or Kiddie porn for me either)

Shap 12-21-04 04:14 PM

I dislike anime, and I'm not too fond of westerns. I stay away from Comic Book movies as well; these past few years I've seen less and less in the theaters as they keep pumping out these movies.. argh!

wordtoyamotha 12-21-04 04:19 PM

I don't watch Anime, Meg Ryan or movies that begin and end with the letter Q.

Maxflier 12-21-04 04:29 PM

I stay the hell away from British "humor",i just dont find it funny at all.

Rammsteinfan 12-21-04 04:32 PM

I refuse to watch any Woody Allen movies, Julia Roberts movies (although I did see Hook and Oceans 11 but still didnt care for em), and most Anime (just doesnt do anything for me).

critterdvd 12-21-04 04:55 PM

I don't really care for anime, but sometimes I find a good movie (Princess Monoke & Spirited Away)... Otherwise I usually shy alway from Westerns mostly.

And Speaking of Actors, I refuse to watch Jon Voght (except for tomb raider)

kornboy 12-21-04 04:59 PM

I dont like/have never seen except pics/think is stupid anime, lol, and will dont like any star trek series or stargate sg-1, i see a lot of people on this board have a lot of different star trek box sets, and stargate stuff, not really into sci-fi, except species, cause the adult alien was hottttt!

Jason 12-21-04 05:06 PM

I don't like chick flicks or modern comedies, but the only movie I can think of that I would outright refuse to watch is "Salo".

nightmaster 12-21-04 05:20 PM

I stay away from anime as well....I think it's a taste I would need to acquire. I'm also not much for 95 percent of the TV on DVD entries. Older westerns, as in westerns made up into the 50's I don't watch.

calhoun07 12-21-04 05:23 PM

No "urban comedies." And no Julia Roberts movies EVER (I did make a rare exception for Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, however, but that's it)!!

I also stay away from "chick flicks," but a couple favorites of mine might be considered "chick flicks" (13 Going on 30, Bridget Jones' Diary, and Love Actually).

Movies with small dogs on the poster or cover art invariably suck. Not just dogs, but small dogs in particular. There are some good dog movies, but the ones I am talking about are movies that are not about dogs in particular, but comedies that, for some reason or another, have dumb ass small dogs on the cover. There was a golfing movie, for example, some years back that had a small dog on top of a golf ball on the cover of the movie. I don't remember the name of it, but you just knew that sucked.

Dance movies. I am never watching a dance movie. Ever.

MJKTool 12-21-04 05:27 PM

I stay far, far away from musicals.

Never let anyone tell you that your opinion isn't valid.

I generally won't watch anything that I deem disturbing. Psychologically disturbing = okay; graphic murder = not okay. War violence and such is fine, though, so I guess the motives for killing make a big difference to me. It's the reason I can't enjoy most slasher movies.

Other than that, I'll watch just about anything except the older Westerns.

cardaway 12-21-04 05:39 PM

I find with almost every general thing I can come up with there is at least one exception. For example, Woody Allen, I thought ANTZ was great.

And I'm speaking of only legal movies of course.

mike45 12-21-04 05:44 PM

Any sort of reality TV.

Purrcey 12-21-04 05:54 PM

I have fairly eclectic tastes as does my husband...I used to think no Adam Sandler until I saw Punch Drunk Love..

However I don't watch...

-'slasher' films ie. Friday the 13th etc, seeing the first Hallowe'en was enough for me
- Farrelly brothers movies
- most modern remakes

Sessa17 12-21-04 05:58 PM

No matter what, I will never ever watch any DVD/movie with these people involved:

Tom Hanks
Tim Robins
The Wayans Bros
Susan Sarandon
Oliver Stone
Martin Lawrence
Adam Sandler
Sean Penn
Tim Allen
Billy Bob Thorton

I'm the opposite of this - I hate slapstick humor (Sandler, Carrey and others). I LOVE British wit. THE OFFICE was one of my favorite "finds" on DVD, and my favorite overall film last year was "Love, Actually".

I also avoid anything with Bette Midler in it like the plague - fortunately, she doesn't make that many films. :)

gutwrencher 12-21-04 06:19 PM

if the Rock is in it....you'll have to hold a gun to my head for me to give it a viddey. also...George Clooney gives me a tummy ache...so he's out too.

and I refuse to watch dumb female teen films.

now give me a spanking session with a few nunnery films....I'm there bro!!

Cygnet74 12-21-04 06:46 PM

I don't watch...

1. anime, or any animation for that matter with the unique exception of Pixar titles.
2. broad, low-brow comedies (bringing down the house, xmas with the kranks, etc)
3. queen latifah movies, the only so-called "actress" that gets on my nerves.
4. anything clearly made without a trace of humanity (cannibal holocaust).

Damn, I forgot the Rock, probably b/c I thought he was done making movies. Add him to my list.

I feel the same way about Clooney, but I really dig Out Of Sight so I can't count him.

Also, add Anime to my list, all of it. I can't stand the crap, it all looks the same.

And add Greg Kinear to my list, the most boring actor known to man.

And a big :thumbsup: to high-brow British humor also. Love the stuff.
