Crude, gross or sexually in-appropiate, take your pick. (I guess insulting your intelligence would count, too...*)

My most offended moment came during the rape/beating scene in A Clockwork Orange. Not to say it wasn't a good movie, I just found that scene exceptionally disturbing, I suppose.

And all of Forbidden Zone* was offensive; if you haven't seen it- don't.

"The great Barrier" in Star Trek V is completely insulting both to my intelligence, and to the entire Trek franchise.

What are you talking about, I love Forbidden Zone. Who didn't love Micheal Ironside in that? "I'm feeling rather energetic today."

For me there was ONE movie that to this day I hate even mentioning the name. I saw it with my brother not thinking it would be that bad, and I nearly passed out and threw up. Event Horizon. Had nightmares for a year. I kid you not.

Most offensive, to women, to art, and just too hardcore, Sincity. Another one I nearly got sick while watching.

No, that was Spacehunter: Adventures In The Forbidden Zone you're talking about. Class-A cheese, very fun.
Forbidden Zone starred Herve Villachez and was a musical from the guy that wrote most of Rocky Horror- we couldn'r BELIEVE it was SO bad!!!

Event Horizon was creepy with no point.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


I would have to agree it's A Clockwork Orange too, even though overall I think it is a very well made film. But in Kubrick's defense, it is my opinion that scene was intended to be repulsive, to paint a picture of just how depraved Alex was.

Oooooh, my bad. I saw Forbidden Zone and didn't realize it was another movie. So it was a movie by Richard O Brian? Your not talking about the horrible (they never should have even bothered) sequel of Rocky are you?

And yes, Adventures is class A cheese and one of my favorites. I watched it all the time when they played it on TV. Sadly it's been a long time since then.

Got to agree with you there. I didn't have that bad a reaction to Event Horizon, but it's the only film (Sci-Fi or otherwise) that's really left me feeling disturbed.
Maybe it's the script, the great acting or whatever, but it definitely creeped me out for a while. Most offensive scene for me as well, although probably necessary for a script, is the short shot of the original crew - creepy ripping their eyes out.
To this day, it's the only film I've never rewatched - yep, it had that much impact on me anyway.

I must say, the entire prequel trilogy was pretty bad in my opinion. I figured, "WHY do I need to see what I already knew happened!" I'll have to agree with you about Palps over the top acting.

Select to view spoiler:


particularly in his Mangulation scene, Mangulation's a word...now.

But Manakin's Frankenstein impression was the thing that COMPLETELY ruined the prequel trilogy for me.

For me, the most offensive scene that I can think of off the top of my head was in Deep Impact. Morgan Freeman, the president in the movie, had a plan to put the important people in a cave so the nation can live on, and he said something to the effect of "People will be chosen at random to enter the cave and live on, but first, we will preselect the nation's best doctors, scientists, teachers, and artists to survive" I was so offended that they lumped in artists as it was such a self applauding, out-of-touch thing to say. That one line completely took me out of the movie, and I hated it ever since.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


I'm confused as to why it would offend you to mention artists as great thinkers that would help preserve the human race.
What I remember thinking was the stupidest bit about "Deep Impact" was the scene where the kid who found the commet (this was years ago that I saw it, so bear with me) is talking to his girlfriend, and she basically says "No I'd rather stay here with people I love and die than go with you and live" and then as he's leaving she runs after the bus sobbing like a loon. WTF? I am remembering that right, aren't I? What a stupid little girl.
However, the most offended I've ever been was watching Episode One. Thanks for ruining Star Wars!

It offends me that an "artist" portrays the President and says that artists are more important than everybody else and deserve special considerations.

What the hell do Bruce Springstein and U2 do to deserve to live automatically while you and I just have to hope to win a lottery? That idea is so offensive to me, it makes me mad again just thinking about.

"Artist" does not automatically mean "celebrity". When I think of artists I think of people like Leonardo DaVinci, who was brilliant, not just as an artist but an inventor. And without the inventors, the world grinds to a halt.

If you genuinely think he was talking about Leonardo DaVinci (or a modern day version), you are deluding yourself. He was talking about Grammy winners, Academy Award Winners, Tony Award Winners, Emmy Award winners, etc. Hollywood is a self applauding entity and they were taking another chance to self applaud.

You´re right, HR. However, Armageddon was a masterpiece compared to one of the worst movies of all time "The Core". Remember? The earths rotation had stopped and a bunch of weirdos are drilling their way towards the earths core to nuke it and SUCCEED?! I mean, how much worse can a script get?

Pick any scene from that piece of s*** if you like, from Magmawave-Surfing to the attack of the giant crystal-things. This is clearly below zero.

Someone mentioned Episode I! I must agree. The whole thing but if you really want a single scene then I have to go with the "whoopee" scene...no wait, I think there are actually two of them. Jake Lloyd wasn't a grood actor but he wasn't horrible as kids go. I believe the blame for those totally inapropriate and out of character exclamations goes to our good friend, Mr. Lucas and whoever in the editing room thought they were good things to leave in.
And the podracing scene. Did it really have to be that long. And didn't Sebulba yank something off of the kid's racer? How does fiddling with a couple of switches fix that?

Since I mentioned overly long racing and/or chase scene...how about the one in MI2 (I was young and stupid when I watched it) or all of them in the Matrix sequels? Why is it so gorram facinating to watch cars and/or motorcyles chase each other around at high speeds for 20 minutes? Ok, slight exageration but if I wanted to see that I'd go to a ruttin' Nascar race. Movies are supposed to have a story in there somewhere.

And to everyone who mentioned Event horizon...Thank you! I hated that whole movie. It was basically just a bloodbath (litterally at some points) with no point or purpose.

And on the topic of Mila Jovovich (however you spell it), what about the Resident evil movies? I know some folks are gonna kill me for this but I actually enjoyed the first one. It wasn't a great movie but I thought it was fun. No, it didn't have any characters from the game but I liked that. The characters aren't the most important parts of RE. What's important are Umbrella and Zombie type monsters. The second movie tried to fit thier characters into the game world and screwed it up royaly. The Nemesis had horrible makeup and what was with the ending? Since when are there head explody type telekinetics in the world of RE?!??

I admit to liking Armageddon I mean I don't give it 5 stars or anything(4 stars),& I watched Steel Magnolias recently & thought it was okay(3 stars).
I'll keep quiet now...

The most offensive movie ever is easily Star Wars Episode I,okay Revenge Of The Sith is the most dissapointing but Episode I is the worst.Most offensive scene's...Jar Jar Binks he is a f**king knob head who doesn't add anything to the movie, he(it)only makes the movie f**king worser.

I think I'll got with any of the SW 'prequels.'

The first was inane, poorly written and ham-handedly edited, as previously pointed out. Jar Jar is a whole other discussion I'd rather not have.

The second had me doing evil Willow quotes in less than five minutes. ("Bored now.") The complete lack of acting ability of CH combined with the negative chemistry between him and NP was just mind-boggling. Didn't they screen test them together?! If so, just how drunk was Lucas when he made that decision?

And the third. Even more yawn-making than the second. The only good thing I can say about it is that the big fight scene plays much better if you Mistie it with the Black Knight's dialogue from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. (Heard tell of a showing in Yooper Country where that actually happened due to bored theater-goers combined with the film breaking at the so-called climax of the fight.)

There are two other films I wish I had walked out on: Clash of the Titans and Troy. Bad acting, bad scripting & playing too fast & loose with mythology. In both cases.

Still never walked out on a SF/F film. I have walked out on a horror flick (at 12 I discovered it just wasn't for me--I left after 20min of 'Jaws.' Never have seen the rest of it and I haven't regretted it either.)

ultraviolet was pretty bad. it was the total lack of humor. felt nothing like real life.

war of the worlds, not the tom cruise one, but the independent one that came out about the same time. oh my gawd, what a horrible piece of crap. that movie should come with a written apology.

i liked the tom cruise wotw better than i expected except for dakota fanning's character. i would've had to shook that little whiner til she popped.

and in the not a sci fi category, i was absolutely offended by the marketing for lost in translation. trying to pass that piece of go-se off as funny and interesting.

never really been morally or physically grossed out by a movie. a clockwork orange wasn't nearly as offensive as it could have been. some of the nastier stuff from the book was toned down a bit.

There seems to be a consensus on the SW prequels. The only positive thing I have to say about them off the top of my head is that the fight scenes were kind of pretty.

Still, I have to say that the things I found most offensive in the world of SW films were the "additions" made in the DVD releas of the original tilogy. The changes in the "Special Edition" VHS could largely be ignored or skipped (the Jabba scene in A New Hope made me shudder and choke the only time I watched it) but was it really neccassary to replace Bobba Fett's voice? Or the original Emperor? And why is HD in Return of the Jedi?!

Event Horizon was definitely harsh. That and The Ring are the only movies to actually frighten me since I was little. If that’s what it means to be offensive, these apply.

SinCity didn’t really do much for me. I actually found it more boring then offensive. I was oddly tantalized by the prospect of torturing Jessica Alba.

Clockwork Orange was sort of the same thing as SinCity, just with no big Hollywood actors.

Clash of the Titans was one of the most awesomest movies! The acting was so awful. The cinematography was awful. The continuity was awful. I loved it. I own it. I don’t know if anyone else on earth does this or not, but I tend to remember certain phrases from movies that become integrated in my everyday speech. Several of them are from this movie. The world just wouldn’t be the same without Clash of Titans.

Sometimes it's nice to just switch the brain off and enjoy some big special effects... Heck, it makes you appreciate the great movies like Serenity all the more!

I thought Armageddon was a great film. It is widely criticized for its crazy inaccuracies and cheese, but it is no more inaccurate or cheesy then Superman or Wonder Woman. The truth is that Armageddon was a comic book story without the comic book. Noble heroes fighting for Truth, Justice and the American way! I loved it. It sort of had the feel of the Song of Roland.

PJ: I know! Let's concentrate on the little people, and show that it's not always about the heroes...and then kill everyone except for the underdeveloped main characters!

Doe Jake Lloyd's Anakin remind anyone else of Moochie from the old Disney movies?
