    Black Swan, I honestly don't think I've ever felt that awkward/uncomfortable during a movie before.

    That one scene that takes place in the hospital actually made me look away.

    The Hangover, utter baws.

    See people mentioning Taxi Driver. Have to admit, it's not my favourite. De Niro's good in it but it always seemed pretty pointless to me. Liked Raging Bull, Casino, Gangs of New York and his take on Cape Fear, and Goodfellas is my favourite of all time, but not too fussed with Taxi Driver.

    Without doubt. I just gave up 20 minutes in, absolutely clueless. I doubt I will ever understand Eraserhead. David Lynch directed The Straight Story which is one of the best films I've ever seen, but it's nothing like a "David Lynch movie".

    As for Taxi Driver, when I first finished it I was like "Is that it?" but it really left an impression on me afterwards when I thought about it a bit more. The mood of it, Travis steadily becoming more unhinged, trying increasingly more violent ways to do something important. It's one of those films I could go on about for ages, like Fight Club or The Social Network, there's loads going on. I think it's Scorsese's best film, but obviously there's no correct answer to that question.

    Titanic. One of the most boring films I have ever seen.

    To this day I have not watch more than 5-8 minutes of it.....Though if you want the real experience you could book a Carnival Cruise.
