The Greatest Movies We’ll Never Watch Again

The Greatest Movies We’ll Never Watch Again


Maybe they’re a chore to sit through. Perhaps they’re just too disturbing. Or maybe they’re so emotionally traumatic
that they left us weeping on the floor for days. From melodramatic war movies to stunning but
slow-moving sci-fi, these are the greatest movies we’ll never watch again. War is hell, and while no film can truly capture
the horrors of battle, The Deer Hunter does a pretty good job of taking moviegoers into
the ninth circle. This 1978 epic follows a trio of blue collar
steelworkers who can’t wait to see action in Vietnam. But when they finally descend into the jungle,
they’re put through the worst tortures imaginable, and the trauma doesn’t stop once they come
back home. The movie opens innocently enough, with our
three leads, Mike, Nick, and Steven, celebrating at a wedding and joyously preparing for war. They ignore the grim warning from a shaken
Green Beret, and when they’re finally tossed into the jungle, they wind up smack dab in
one of the most horrific movie scenes of all time: the Russian roulette sequence. Captured by the Viet Cong, the friends are
forced to play the suicidal game for the amusement of their guards, and the acting here is so
intense that it feels like a genuine snuff film. All David Lynch movies feel a little dreamlike,
but Inland Empire is pure subconscious surrealism, a cinematic fugue state that lasts over three
hours. It’s like you’ve stumbled straight into Lynch’s
worst nightmares. The movie is an impenetrably slow descent
into a world of red lights, ambient noises, and digital camerawork. And while you can always appreciate Lynch’s
avant garde genius, Inland Empire provides more questions than answers. “They’re a group that performs in traveling
shows. In the Baltic Region.” “What’s that got to do with you?” For some fans, this might sound like an awesome
experience, but for most moviegoers, Inland Empire feels like the world’s worst acid trip. It’s definitely worth watching once, but when
it’s over, you might be a too overwhelmed to give it another shot. In The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Colin Farrell
plays a heart surgeon named Steven Murphy whose fondness for the bottle contributed
to the death of a patient. Steven refuses to admit any wrongdoing, and
that’s just not going to sit with the patient’s son, an unusual teen by the name of Martin
Lang. “Your son told me that you’ve got lots of
hair under your arms, three times more than I do, and that you’ve got a very hairy back
and a very hairy belly.” There’s something off about Martin, and that’s
before he reveals his godlike power to enact revenge on Steven’s entire family. As part of his revenge scheme, Martin tells
Steven all his family members are going to die of a mysterious illness. They’ll become paralyzed, and then they’ll
refuse to eat. And after they start bleeding from their eyes,
they’ll die. The only way Steven can stop this plague is
by killing a member of his family. The movie gets even darker when the family
turns on each other, arguing why they shouldn’t be the one to die. The desperation, the betrayal, the blood,
it’s all so cruel, and it culminates in one of the most disturbing climaxes ever filmed. Horrific in ways that no slasher film could
ever achieve, The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a powerful film that you won’t watch more
than once. Instead, you’ll want to put a curse on whoever
recommended the film to you in the first place. “It’s the only thing I can think of that’s
close to justice.” Released in 2011, Kill List follows Jay, a
soldier-turned-assassin who’s fallen on hard times. He’s got money problems, relationship troubles,
and some serious PTSD. But things start looking up when he gets a
gig to pick off three easy targets. However, whenever he shows up to put a cap
in his victims, they start thanking him for the privilege of dying by his hand. It’s more than a little unsettling, and soon,
Jay realizes he’s in the center of an occult conspiracy that demands a lot of blood and
some really big sacrifices. Kill List is an all-out assault on the senses. Not only is it one of the most suspenseful
movies ever made, but it’s filled with disturbing sequences. The final showdown with a group of naked pagans
is pure nightmare fuel, but it’s the final few minutes that will leave you reeling. Arachnophobes, beware. If eight-legged creatures give you the willies,
then you might want to stay far away from Enemy. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, this eerie thriller
is full of spider imagery. Shot in a sickly yellow hue, Enemy stars Jake
Gyllenhaal as a college professor who’s made an unsettling discovery. After renting a particular film, he spots
an actor who looks exactly like him. Eventually, the two doppelgängers collide,
and let’s just say they don’t become best of friends. Actor-Gyllenhaal is a grim and violent man
and pulls depressed and weary Professor-Gyllenhaal deeper and deeper into his web of darkness. Playing two roles, Gyllenhaal makes your skin
crawl, with his characters engaging in all sorts of unsavory activities. Enemy is a film that’s likely to make you
queasy and uneasy, and that’s even before you get to the absolutely horrifying ending
scene. “Ah, never know how your day’s going to turn
out.” Based on a tragic true event, Fruitvale Station
tells the story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old man who was killed by a Bay Area Rapid Transit
officer in 2009. We watch Oscar bonding with his daughter and
connecting with strangers. We see him smile and laugh, full of life. Sure, he’s got some issues, but he’s a sincere
guy trying to make things better. And what hurts is that we know he’ll never
get that chance. Director Ryan Coogler does an excellent job
of showing Oscar as a living, breathing human, not just a statistic. He loves, feels pain, makes mistakes, and
affects so many people. But all his chances for a brighter future
are brought to a bloody halt when he’s shot in the back for absolutely no reason. He leaves behind a child, a girlfriend, and
a mother. A human being bleeds to death on New Year’s
Day, and as Fruitvale Station comes to an end, we’re not just depressed, we’re mourning
a life that was taken far too soon. In Manchester by the Sea, Casey Affleck plays
Lee Chandler, a handyman who’s cut himself off from the world. The only time he interacts with people is
when he’s picking fights at the bar. However, Lee is forced out of hiding when
is brother dies from cardiac arrest. Naturally, Lee has to return to his hometown
to arrange the funeral and care for his nephew Patrick. Eventually, we discover why Lee hates his
hometown and why he’s a depressed, angry shell of a man. One evening, after a night of drinking, Lee
accidentally started a fire that killed his two kids. Unable to deal with the pain, Lee divorced
his wife and has done his best to disappear. For a moment, it seems like the bond he’s
forming with his nephew might save him from his past, but this isn’t a Hallmark movie. In the last act, Lee admits the truth to Patrick. “I can’t beat it. I’m sorry.” As much as he cares for his nephew, he can’t
overcome his depression and guilt. There are no easy solutions or feel-good endings
here, and while Manchester by the Sea is a beautiful film, wallowing in all that misery
a second time sounds like the most painful two hours you could ever spend. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner
2049 is one of the most gorgeous movies ever made. A worthy follow-up to the 1982 original, this
stunning sequel nabbed cinematographer Richard Deakins the Oscar award he’s always deserved. From its barren desert wastelands to its neon
holograms, 2049 is a visually rich world of replicants and artificial intelligence, all
beautifully bathed in smog and city lights. However, it’s not exactly what you’d call
a fast-paced film. In fact, you might even call it a slog. The movie follows Ryan Gosling as K, a blade
runner who stumbles across a mystery that might revolutionize the entire world. Crazier still, he might be at the center of
a vast conspiracy, and during his quest for the truth, he meets the original blade runner
himself, Rick Deckard. But while K does indeed solve the mystery,
the film takes its sweet time in getting to the answers. While Blade Runner 2049 is a fantastic work
of science fiction, it runs almost three hours long, and even thinking about rewatching it
might be enough to make you a little sleepy. After winding up in the world’s scariest club,
the members of a punk rock band stumble across a particularly nasty murder scene. Knowing the alt-right owners aren’t going
to let them walk away, the band members lock themselves in the titular room and prepare
for war. But jiu-jitsu will only get you so far when
your opponents are walking around with pistols and pit bulls. With our heroes completely outmatched, Green
Room quickly devolves into a gore-soaked nightmare of ripped-out throats and nearly-severed limbs. Unlike a lot of other horror films, the deaths
in Green Room aren’t at all fun. These kids are screaming in genuine pain as
they’re mangled by dogs and hacked by machetes. Green Room is fantastic, but at its core,
the movie is as mean and nihilistic as cinema gets. And while the rockers eventually take their
revenge, so much blood gets splattered on the walls by the end that it should probably
be renamed Red Room. A passion project for Martin Scorsese, Silence
features no gangsters, no dirty cops, and no taxi-driving assassins. Instead, the story follows two Jesuit priests,
Father Rodrigues and Father Garupe, as they head to Japan to find a missing priest, Father
Ferreira. Steadfast in his faith, Rodrigues is tested
when he falls into the hands of a ruthless Japanese governor. Practicing Christianity in Japan was punishable
by death in the 17th century, but the governor doesn’t just want to murder this priest. He wants to break his spirit and make him
renounce his beliefs. “Think of the suffering you have inflicted
on these people, just because of your selfish dream of a Christian Japan.” On top of the physical torment, Father Rodrigues
is in constant spiritual pain. Should he recant and damn his soul to save
the lives of others? And in the midst of all this pain, why is
God so silent? Whether you’re a believer or an atheist, Silence
is a painful reminder that faith is never easy, and the silence of the universe is the
most painful torture of all. “We have our own religion, Padre. A pity you did not know this yet.” “No, no, we just think a different way.”

  1. I took world civilization and that movie about Christian Japan actually happened. There was documentation of leaders doing that to Christian followers and that Japan blocked themselves from the rest of the world because they fear people changing their faiths.

  2. I beg to differ. I've watched Deer Hunter at least 6 times and Blade Runner 3 times. I didn't get Enemy. Fucking weird! Manchester was horrible!

  3. I have never found a movie where im like oh no i cant sit through this gore fest or oh its so boring i gotta turn if off

  4. In Enemy there is only one jake…. Its shown like there are two…. It shows how a person can behave differently… Stop making such hype… About it… And there are very less creepy scenes… Spider are symbolic to females here.. Thats it… Nothing much..

  5. How in the fuck is "Blade Runner 2049" considered a movie that you'll never watch again?  FOH man.  That movie was art.

  6. The Brood is one of these types of films. No way in hell will I ever watch that film again. About 15 minutes before the film ended I was dry heaving from one of the scenes.

  7. Manchester by the Sea I've seen numerous times. It's a great movie and Casey Affleck is incredible in it.

  8. I just can't relate to the idea behind this. If I like the movie, of course I want to watch it again, many times. I love films that give me strong emotions, whether they are positive or sad emotions. Many times I like depressing films the most.

  9. Blade Runner movies are like a good book. You want to watch/treat yourself every now and then. I've watched 2049 a few times already!

  10. For me it was Sucker Punch. Amazing movie that I loved…but just can't handle the injustice of it all, especially when it's happening to young children.

  11. Honestly, I don't often rewatch movies these days. Just too many good stories to see and hard to justify time spent rewatching even the best films. That said, if someone I'm close to hasn't seen a good film, I'll watch it again to experience a fresh view with someone else.

  12. Instead of Blade Runners average sequel, I would've put Schindlers List, great movie, seriously disturbing imagery

  13. "House of Sand and Fog" and "Requiem for a Dream". Oddly enough these both feature a depressed Jennifer Connelly

  14. Lone Survivor was hard to watch, ive yet been able to watch again. Maybe cause I know it was all true, Marcus the lone survivor in the real life story was there helping give close 100% accuracy as possible. It's rough watching knowing that our soldiers went through this. Great movie tho!

  15. I saw the Green Room at release and oh shit it's a very vivid movie indeed. Now that I've been reminded of it, I actually want to watch it again. Also an honorable mention is Human Centipede

  16. Black Hawk Down, I don’t think i’ll ever be able to watch it a second time. It’s such a heart wrenching true story of war, it’s heartbreaking but so good at the same time

  17. Just because it's almost 3 hours long doesn't make Blade Runner 2049 unwatchable. It's not the films fault that you have the impatience and attention span of a squirrel. I know some don't like 2049 but I love that film I own it on 4K and have seen it 3 times. I think you should retitle this video as "The greatest movies SOME will never see again." Because your current title is acting like you are speaking for everyone. You are not. Your opinion is yours and yours alone do not act as if we all share it.

  18. Don't want to be traumatized watching a film.
    I want to be entertained.
    There's enough trauma in the real world to deal with.
    Why would anyone want to watch trauma.
    Still waiting for directors to start exploring the highest best and noble in human nature – not endless focus and direction on the most depraved or worst.

  19. Out of these movies I've only seen 3. "Manchester By the Sea", "Enemy" and "Silence"..the only reason I wouldn't watch them again is because they were boring

  20. 1:45 – nothing worse in movie critiques than those who regard some steaming pile of shit as "artistic brilliance"

  21. The enemy is a movie based on a book called "O Homem Duplicado" from José Saramago, one of the greatest Portuguese writers. The mind of that man was disturbing and INSANE.The movie is actually full of references to women and mostly about politics. You must understand the point of view of José Saramago in order to even try to understand the movie.

  22. The Mist would be one of my favorites — with the original ending.
    movie I'll never watch again – Seven.

  23. Would’ve been great if into the wild or even Leon the professional could’ve been on this video great movies that i only watched once …

  24. EL Topo. Definitely El Topo. Well made, wonderfully surreal, good acting but gives one a case of mental indigestion. Watched it once but never again.

  25. Lalaland is probably my favorite movie but ill never watch it again because of its ending, still havent and i saw it when it came out

  26. I thought these were supposed to be great movies. Looper is just listing movies that are hard to re-watch.

  27. I've watched Silence 3 times, can't get enough of it. Every time I discover something new. Scorsese made one of his most contemplative films ever. Reminds me of Kurosawa's Ran.

  28. I have seen all of this movies. Marvel fans only watch marvel movies and if a movie doesn't have a lot jokes and is filled with rainbow colors it is not good to them

  29. The Grey should be on this list. It starts out with an attempted suicide and manages to get more depressing from there..

  30. Blue Valentine (2010)
    Breaking up with a loved one is hard but even when there are some drama between that love story but not your style of a romantic drama and powerful performances by Gosling and Williams.

    Eden Lake (2008)
    Relying on the reality of brutality and violence by youths is the worst thing around the world especially when you're an adult couple trying to have a nice holiday until a gang of teenagers comes to ruin a peaceful relaxing time and then find out how dark and heartless the gang leader is. But the ending is devastating we were hoping that the antagonist gets what's coming either a satisfying death or punishment but instead lies to his parents and gets away with it. The parents were even worse when punishing out main hero we hope make out alive when there men which was very heartbreaking and seeing Jack O'Connell's character just went up to his room deleting every video he had filmed of his torturing and putting Fassbender's shades which made me rage quit and making us see how evil and despicable the teen is.

  31. btw… the movie Enemy is neither horror, suspense, intriguing, or disgusting… its philosophical… coz it was written by nobel laureate Jose Saramango… those people who never understood Jose Saramango…. Really Unfortunate

  32. God is silent because these terrible things is your test of faith: your choice to be faithful, or not and your persecutors choice to continue assaulting you or have mercy.

  33. "The Deer Hunter" left me emotionally scarred for years And "Schindlers List", while one of the finest movies I've ever seen, did not warrant a 2nd viewing after years and years.

  34. What on earth !!! I've watched the new Blade Runner dozens of times. Its as good if not better than the first !!! Harrison Ford and Gosling are utterly fantastic
