Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
The way Jones acts towards Willy just gives me asshole vibes. My proto-feminist spouse and her friend, who I thought would hate it, however, lapped it up. Women, go figure.

The stabbing scene at the end of Saving Private Ryan. The helplessness, the German soldier talking quietly and shushing his victim. Hard to watch.

As for a movie scene that made me cringe out of its sheer stupidity and awkwardness, think of the bad boy Peter Parker in Spider-Man 3. Who the hell thought this was a way to show he had been corrupted by an evil entity?

As a young boy, Cat People scared the hell out of me - the blood, flowing under the door!
 
2020-12-03 6:21:45 PM  
It wasn't cringe-making, but it was very odd.  It was in an English movie called "This Happy Breed", and the scene took place as a family moved into a new house (in the 1920s, I think, if it matters).  One of them, the mother or aunt IIRC, was busy buttering the cat's feet (on the soles).  No mention of it, but they showed this, didn't refer to it later or anything.  I looked that custom up later, and apparently it was a sort of home remedy to keep the cat from returning to the last house.  The theory was that the butter would annoy the cat, and while it cleaned it off of the tasty butter, the cat would become acclimated to the new place - it sort of made the cat 'stop to think' or something.
Anyway, it was kind of weird.

I'd say that scene in Bay's TMNT where Megan Fox is rambling to Whoopie like a crazy conspiracy theorist. Sooo cringe. 

But then I've outed myself as having watched Bay's TMNT. Please know I was on a veeeery long international flight and the movie pickins were slim.

All of "First Knight". A movie so bad that a flashback of a young boy watching everyone in his village being burned alive in a church brought nothing but laughter from the audience.
 
2020-12-03 6:52:19 PM  
Nothing in particular comes to mind, but I get cringey in any scene where I know a character is walking into an embarrassment before it happens. I generally get uncomfortable and pace around. My wife thinks it is hilarious. I'm otherwise a regular, adult male with no issues.

/wait, watched Hateship Loveship the other night. Main character thinks she's been romantically messaging a guy, it's all been a hoax, she travels a few hundred miles to meet him. Obviously, he's oblivious. I was wrecked for her during the buildup.

I can't watch movie violence stronger than PG-13 and I used to be quite a gore fan with Fangoria magazine and Tom Savini worship, etc.

Some years back I lost three former students and a coworker to violent deaths and suddenly none of that shiat was fun anymore.

I don't think I've ever seen an April o'Neill who was ever any good at her job. You don't expect Pulitzer material from the cartoon version, but even in the 1990 movie she had no idea how to do investigative journalism.

At least that version had the sense not to pitch what she couldn't prove, though...

Movies like "Sense and Sensibility" are fun to watch when you get to the moments where you the viewer know something the characters don't... and then you cringe for their sakes when the object of their affection arrives/departs with someone else.

AtomPeepers: [moriareviews.com image 850x637]Cabin Boy is an entire movie for cringe! How did this get made?


Back in the 90s I worked with a guy who was a collector of VHS tapes - Apocalypse Pooh, the exploding whale, that kind of thing. As a matter of fact he was the first person to put Winnebago Man on the internet. Anyway, he had movie nights where we'd go watch his collection. (I think I ran off a copy of the siskel and ebert outtakes, which I got from a guy who was in tv production in Chicago - that's how it was then. Youtube was a guy with two VCRs and an unhealthy obsession.)

Anyway one night was a Chris Elliot double feature - his Letterman behind-the-scenes special, and then Cabin Boy. I'm sure you're a fine fellow, but there will always need to be the kind of filmmaker who makes something like Cabin Boy. It can't all be Marvel or cloying romcoms, or Jonah fat guy and the dime store James Dean mugging at the camera.

For god's sake, it had David Letterman AND a stop-motion sequence. And Ann Magnuson, pipe-cleaner extraordinaire. 

I guard my VHS copy of Cabin Boy with my life, so don't even think of busting in here to take it.

Watching Sleepaway Camp (1983) during Halloween, just for  random retro scary.
The busloads of little kids and Jr High kids running from the bus to get to their cabins, etc, they're all excited to be there...
The camp kitchen staff is standing outside watching. One of the staff is really into the kids, comments about fresh meat, "where I come from we call them baldies! Makes your mouth water, don't it."
Another cook (Robert Earl Jones) laughs, and says, "Artie, they're too young to even know what's on your mind"
creeperstaff guy responds "Ben good buddy, there ain't no such thing as being too young. you're just too old"

Scenes where people walk on broken glass aren't good for me.

Didn't Bruce Willis do that in Die Hard?  I think there have been other actors in other movies as well.

I have had little splinters of broken glass embedded in my hands and feet at various times - The last one happened months after the bottle it came from broke. That little sliver of glass was so tiny and embedded so deep in my foot I could barely see it, but I definitely could feel it - only when I walked, of course.

Imagine a floor covered in those things and also larger pieces.
