Haven't watched much horror... When I was a kid I found that I just didn't think they were well-made enough (the few I saw) so I just sort of ignored the whole genre after that... Definately not a gore fan either (though zombie movies can be fun anyway)

Any an all misspellings are henceforth blamed on the cat.

yeah that's my exception to the gore rule, zombie movies, I don't actually class those as gore, though I suppose they are,

Here's some controversy! I think Jurassic world looks awful!! Who came up with idea of a genetically modified super dinosaur!?? Aren't they all genetically modified anyway!

Some things just shouldn't be trifled with. The new terminator movie for example. What a mistake that is! Last thing we need is to have the canon of classic movie franchises messed with. Remakes... meh. But to mess with existing stories because the franchise is a reasonably safe bet is a rubbish idea!

A note on gore: Like you guys, I really don't like it. When people watch romantic films, they feel all romantic. When they watch an action film, the feel pumped up and thrilled. When they watch graphic and hideous violence, won't that have an affect too??

Everything's on the right!!!

It's like driving abroad!

I'm all for Chris Pratt to reboot the Indiana Jones Franchise, I think that would be a good idea, as they're doing so for all the iconic 80's movies, but I definitely agree that they should leave some ideas on the table. I'm not sure why they would make a theme park like disney world with dinosaurs, they still make you stay in a car at the lion safari ! :unsure:

I have mixed feelings about horror movies, my step brother forced me to watch walking dead and scary ass crap when I was 10, but I turned out ok, .. I think :S

no i don't think it does luckily, Most of us still have the ability to know right and wrong, so while it's fine to feel romance or excitement watching a movie like that, it doesn't make us romantic fools or action hero's, or killers, or mutilators by the same token. The age old saying, if your friend jumped off a bridge would you kind of has good meaning here.

I think it sill makes most people will feel horrified. I do however think it is desensitizing us to this sort of thing, so that there needs to be more gore in movies to 'thrill'.

After watching The Running Man years ago i became convinced that that sort of game show would exist at some point, we're getting there.

Channel 4 had a game show called Wanted many years ago that was basically The Running Man (the novel, not the film adaptation which is completely different). The only difference was, nobody died.

Hopefully that will just be the next series of Big Brother.

oh god let that happen!
Did anyone watch any of the 'I survived the zombie apocalypse' series?
That was just too painful to watch, I gave it the benefit of the doubt by watching 1 & a half episodes, then I killed my TV
(no TV's were actually harmed)
