A Movie That You Hate
Hate is an emotion that takes energy. I could list dozens of movies here that I didn’t care to see or didn’t enjoy seeing. But a movie that I hate is very rare. I am able to see the bright side of almost anything. Instead, I am going to talk about the only movie that ever made me walk out of the theater, which is Rob Roy. I went to see Rob Roy with my mom, probably because I mistook it for Braveheart (which was actually released almost two full months after this movie). But after only a half an hour, a woman (Jessica Lange) is punched in the stomach, hit in the face and dragged by the hair. She is then put over a table and raped in a very long and quite brutal scene. As a 12-year-old that was enough for me, and I was out of there. On a side note, this is one of the reasons that I love all the tools that are now on the internet so parents can know what objectionable material is in a movie before taking their kids. But this isn’t a movie that I hate, that scene simply dredged up some great emotions in me and that is to the credit of Tim Roth who plays a great villain. He is very good at making everyone in the audience hate him with a passion. This is a movie that I need to watch again because I have always spoken badly of it because of that scene.
