If you or someone you know has been the victim of rape, this is the place to find support and get advice. If you want, discuss your experience, share your feelings, and meet others going through a similar situation.
after reading a discussion (or advice) board written by thegoober...i thought i should just ask that if anyone has seen any recent movies, whether it's an old film or a new one, if they could just give me a "heads-up" if the movie contains violence (man hurting woman), sexual content (whether it's forced or not), and any kind of sexual torture...please.
it's much appreciated.
so far, on my list of movies NOT okay for me to watch are:
1) 300 (2007; story of Leonidas and 300 Spartans battling against Xerxes and his HUGE army. Actors: Gerard Butler; Rodrigo Santoro); Review: it was a GREAT movie...other than the fact that it includes a semi-introductory sex scene between Leonidas and his wife that has NOTHING to do with the story line, and then of course the scene where Leonidas' wife is "R" (i can understand why that has a point in the film...because she ends up killing him)
2)Saw 4 (2007; i never saw this film for myself, but much thanks to thegoober for letting me know it has some violence/sexual content.)
3) Once Were Warriors (1994; an abusive father who has a drinking problem beats his wife and "R" her, and brings all his "buddies" over at night to "hang-out". one of these "buddies" ends up "R" his daughter (she in return ends up hanging herself.)
4) Se7en (1995; it's about the Seven Deadly Sins (a.k.a. Capital Vices or Cardinal Sins) such as: Luxuria (extravagance which becomes Lust), Gula (Gluttony), Avaritia (Greed), Acedia (Sloth), Ira (Wrath - Anger), Invidia (Envy), and Superbia (Pride). The sexual part is when he "deals" with Lust; a prostitute is...just messed up. i'll leave it at that.)
5) The Hills Have Eyes (2006; this is another movie that i haven't seen for myself. my fiance told me not to see it because it contains stuff in there i wouldn't want to see.)
again, these are only a few of the movies...i could go on forever...but please, just let me know if you find any...thanks for your help. =)
