Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday – Movies I never want to re-see

Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that originated on The Broke and The Bookish. As of January 2018, it moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books I Don’t want to Re-Read. If you’ve read my blog, you know I don’t re-read books (ever), so instead, my TTT will be:

Top Ten Movies I’ve seen once and NEVER want to see again

The Birds. This movie scared the crap out of me. Once was enough.

Platoon. This movie was incredibly voilent, and while amazingly well done, seeing it once gave me all I need to know about Vietnam.

Saving Private Ryan. Yes, another war movie. They are generally very violent, which is why once is enough for me. The beginning of this movie is incredibly hard to watch once, let alone multiple times. No thanks.

The Passion of the Christ. I cried this entire movie, then cried the entire mass I went to the next day. Way too graphic.

Apocalypse Now. Last war movie, I promise. I saw this in high school and it was hard to watch even then.

The Exorcist. Don’t think I need to explain why once is enough for this movie.

Jaws. This movie cemented my fear of deep water at a young age. Only problem is my kids LOVE this movie, so I’ve seen it more times than I’d care to.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri. This movie was really dark, slow and long, and once was enough.

Braveheart. I don’t like period pieces in general, but everyone said you have to see this. I didn’t love this movie, but now I can say I’ve seen it.

Dear Zachary. Yes, this is a documentary, but this movie shattered my heart. You have to see this movie once. It’s so well done but so heartbreaking.

Is there a movie you’ve seen once and never want to see again? I’d love to hear from you.

  1. I haven’t actually seen many of these. I do however love Jaws and pretty much any disaster or monster type movie so will happily watch again and again. My usual refuse to watch ever again are sad ones especially if they involve animals. I Am Legend and Warhorse immediately spring to mind. I know if I attempted to watch again I’d just spend the whole time in tears.

      1. Nope, I won’t even consider Marley and Me. If there’s any animal I get someone else to watch it first so they can tell me if anything bad happens to them.

  2. I haven’t seen any of these films, though I have heard of the popular ones like “Saving Private Ryan,” “Braveheart” or “The Passion,” etc. It’s rare I like WWII movies like ‘Ryan’ because they’re so sad. I suspect, like you, if ever I saw these, I probably wouldn’t want re-watches either. There’d either be too much sadness or the creepy factor would be too high. 🙂

  3. I remember a boyfriend I had back in the day making me watch Platoon with him (he was in the Army). He said it was so good and I was disturbed by all the violence! I’m with you on not re-watching it.
