Requiem for a Dream is a movie you never want to see again? I watch the movie every chance I get. I just bought the Blu-Ray, one of my all-time favorite films. I can watch it three times in a row especially the ass-to-ass scene. If I got rich, I'd host a party like that myself. I don't give a rat's ass if that is sick. Most of the time, I rewind the entire end sequence and watch it over again repeatedly. Usually when I feel bad about my own life, I put on Requiem to make myself feel better. It is painful and disturbing, but it is also beautiful in it's own way.

I dunno, I never get enough of JC getting his ass beat.  Passion is off this list.


But yea, Requiem, The  Seventh Seal are great choices.  And I still watch SAW, but it's a once a year thing, rather than a repeated abusing.

Gladiator.  I watched it. Once.  I love period pieces, but the ending of the movie still drives me up a wall.  Se7en is another that I cannot watch.  I just recently made myself watch A Clockwork Orange again, and I agree about it as well.  Singing in the Rain is my second favorite movie musical and I have trouble watching Gene Kelly sing the song without thinking of Malcolm McDowell's character.

No Excorcist? I saw it when I was 12, and have regretted it ever since. I went to the theatre for the rerelease years ago and still felt uncomfortable.

The Terminal was simply boring.  it was about a guy waiting at an airport.  You want to make a movie about that?  Even with Steven Spielberg directing and Tom Hanks in the lead, you can't make this premise intriguing. 

I agree absolutely with The Crying Game.  It is well acted but once you've seen it, I see no reason to go through it again.  The same goes for Life Is Beautiufl.

I have not seen the others and in the case of the Saw movies I have absolutely no interest in seeing them. 

What I would add:  Pulp Fiction.

\\\\"It's also about imagery, shots, editing, tone, etc."////

Those are elements of storytelling, yes.  Requiem was just plain old garbage.  It didn't really do anything well.  It was the kind of lazy crap filmmaking that is on par with something Quentin Tarantino would crap out.

"One Hour Photo". Simply cannot bring myself to watch it again. Something about it just seems bring me down.

Wow, all crappy movies that are either incredibly preachy and NOT entertaining or just plain stupid (SAW).

Good list...NOT

Wallyrus: Storytelling and imagery are two separate things. Yes, imagery has a way of impacting the story, but I separate the two. Case in point: I wouldn't call 2001 A Space Odyssey a film that showcases great storytelling, but I would say that it is great cinema. The story is secondary to the way in which Kubrick uses imagery to communicate a philosophy and/or emotion.

I do agree with you that Requiem is a horrible movie. For the most part, I found it's story to be a retread of themes I've seen done before and done better (e.g. Trainspotting, Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, Jesus' Son, etc.). I also found it to be extremely heavy-handed in it's preachiness.

I completely disagree with you, however, on Quentin Tarantino. But whatever, we all have our opinions.

I've never seen The Terminal but I'm pretty sure it doesn't qualify as a "Great Movie" in the first place. It looked terrible and the description here seems to support that. Also, I have seen Very Bad Things and it surely doesn't qualify as a "Great Movie" because it is, in fact, one of the worst movies ever made.
