  • Movies I hate

    I really hate anything with a doll and terror. Something about evil dolls just freak me out. Maybe it's because I like dolls and can't bear to think about them murdering me in my sleep (or in my wake, for that matter).

    Great, now I'm kind of scared to go to bed..there's a doll in my room.

    Way to go, Philly.

    Say - I know where you can get your hands on a genuine haunted doll that's ruined lives and basically horrified every owner since 1937. Current custodian will only accept cash or money order. Interested?

    Hope this helps.

      I walked out of The Godfather and slept through 2001: A Snooze Odyssey. I don't watch horror flicks so it's not an issue. When HRH got to the age where she wanted to see a scary movie, I told her that just because the other kids said it was fun didn't mean she'd like it. She insisted. I showed her Poltergeist, which isn't even really a horror movie. It scarred her for life and she listens to me now.

        The Alaska Native Medical Center on Tudor Road in Anchorage is one of the best kept tourist location secrets. Who would go to a hospital on vacation? It's a five story building and on each floor's central area by the elevators are very large glass showcases of the best collection of Alaska Native arts and crafts in the State. One floor is dedicated to the dolls. There's probably over 200 dolls most being anywhere from 6 - 12 inches tall on display in various positions facing various directions.

        When my nephew and his wife came up to visit last summer we took them to ANMC. As we were on the "doll floor" innocently looking at the case load of dolls my butch tree climbing arborist nephew leaned over and very quietly whispered, "Uncle Jim this creeps me out can we go"!! He never took his eyes off the case as he backed his way to the stairs to descend.

        If it pays, it stays

          I can't watch Poltergeist....that one scene where she comes through the t.v. freaked me out so if the t.v. ever goes on test pattern I'm terrified. I've never watched any of the Godfather and I slept through Star Wars and talked through one of the sequels. Most sci fi's bore me to death, although I really like In Time.

            I have a collection of about 100 dolls from around the world. I'd like to see the Alaskan collection, although housed in a hospital might be kind of creepy.

              I couldn't stand The Godfather but 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of my favorite films.

                Genre, personnel or individual movies?

                Chick flicks, anything with Paul Rudd in it and The American President. Among others.
                Science that cannot be questioned is propaganda.

                  Chick flicks, ick. The only ones I can stand to watch involve Vince Vaughn. Now, I will watch a costume drama if the story is decent. About half of those movies seem to be thinly disguised 'chick flicks'.

                  I generally don't watch movies centered around children or those portraying old people in some sickly, sentimental way. I'm pretty okay with a lot of horror movies but not stuff like 'Hostel'. I'm tired of monster movies that portray the monster as sexy, witty, and smugly superior to his or her victims. It's not that this kind of movie can't work, it's just that it's all we've seen for quite a while now.

                    Anything...just an open ended question.

                      Any slasher type movie.
                      I just don't get it.

                      Science fiction is pretty much dead to me.

                      For the most part, if the premise is too far from reality, I pass, although I sort of liked Ted... but it was very bored night that caused me to watch a movie whose premise was a teddy bear that was alive.
                      Robert Francis O'Rourke, Democrat, White guy, spent ~78 million to defeat, Ted Cruz, Republican immigrant Dark guy …
                      and lost …
                      But the Republicans are racist.

                        I know, dear. It's a guy thing. Everyone I ever met who really liked 2001 was male. I think it's the gadgets.

                        Planet of the Apes was ok though.

                          Love mysteries but no horror movies..no blood, ick.

                          I remember watching American Beauty thinking it was the most depressing movie I ever saw and then it went on to win awards.
                          May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
                          Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
                          And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
                          may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.
