That'll teach them to friend zone you.

"I think Schindler's List is a fantastic film. And I didn't watch it at the cinema actually. I got it out on video, about a year later - by mistake - 'cause I'd never heard of it and I was in Blockbuster sort of late one night. I was a bit drunk, and I thought it was a porn film. No, 'cause I saw 18 certificate, top shelf. I thought, oh, black and white - dodgy home movie, German sounding - they're the best, and what swung it was that quote on the back from Barry Norman: "Have a box of Kleenex ready". Rubbish, I used about two. Well, there was a shower scene."

In college we used to pay to see one movie and sneak into a second (and sometimes a third) for free.

Worst double feature ever?  Schindler's List and Ace Ventura Pet Detective.

The best, oddly enough, was Goodfellas and Home Alone.  It seemed as though at any moment Pesci might throw the Culkin kid to the ground and stomp him to death.  And that felt wonderful.

yellowcat: Lunchlady: mrlewish: Why are some of you so traumatized? You do know crap like that still happens in one form or another.

Yeah this.

Seriously was this the first time any of you learned about the Holocaust or did you just not know what you were getting yourself into?

When it came out one of the women I worked with at the time went to see it. At coffee break the next day, she says this -- "did you know there were 6,000,000 Jews killed by Hitler?" She was in her mid 40s at the time. Around the break table were two other women she had gone to high school with, an older women in her 70s (her husband was a WWII vet), me (age 35) and another co-worker who was about 25. We all just stared at her. One of people who had gone to high school with her reminded her it was taught to them, which she denied. She swore she had never heard about the Holocaust until the movie.

mhd: /It all kinda read like a nihilist version of a Hesse-style bildungsroman, for what that's worth

yeah, but your legerdemain is the cthonic bailiwick of a rubric of portmanteau.

Eirik: I watched it in college with a couple friends   We sat, unable to move, until the credits were over and the house lights came back on.  We were far from the only ones that did that (it was in the 1000 seat Fremont theater in San Luis Obispo.  It wasn't full, but many people seems stuck in their seats.)

When we walked out onto the street, my friend said, "That was the greatest movie I'll never watch again."  I kind of agreed with him,

/Won't let my kids see it until at least high school.
//Classic animated fare for the time being.
///I'm hearing good things about this "Grave of the Fireflies".  I'll have to rent it for them this weekend.

Not sure if serious...

I had to write a 20 page paper about that movie for a class in college. I must have watched Schindler's List at least 30 times; slowing it down, stopping, rewinding, taking notes over the course of a month. I remember being so numb when I finally handed in that paper. I had been crying almost daily.

Ugh, never again.

Oliwia is far from the only person traumatized by that film.
