whoreable I saw district 9 a couple weeks ago. It was shaky and made me a bit sick by the end, but wasnt too bad.

Blue Fox Ah man that really sucks about the Hurt Locker. Me and horhay are super bad about the shakiness kind of stuff, and they are showing it for free at my school.

I was pretty messed up when I saw Cloverfield, but Horhay is really bad about it. He can't even watch us play Kirby Air Riders.

Yankee 49 Yeah, you and most people are lucky. But there was actually a poster displayed at AMC theaters , I saw the photo online, warning people like me to not watch Hurt Locker. (I saw it at a Cinemark.)I never had a problem before a couple of years ago. I think that the camera work now is speeding up and those filmmakers that want to make it look "more authentic" are on the rise.

robo_rob That kinda stuff never bothers me or anything. I think the only time ever was playing Quake 4 on my 360 while medicated. Other than that, never.

I remember seeing Blair Witch in theaters wondering what the hell was wrong with everybody.

Motion Sickness Movies

I too tried to make it through The Hurt Locker and I had to leave after a little over an hour. I had wanted to see it all summer, too.

And this has happened to me with numerous other films as well. The last one that did the same thing was Vantage Point with Dennis Quaid. But I didn't feel as bad as it sucked.

I wish theaters would let people know ahead of time. I'm now finding out that certain AMC theaters did warn people about Hurt Locker. I had no idea others were getting sick too! I thought it was my sensitive stomach!

Kitsa A projectionist on shakycam:

ZeldaQueen X-Files: I Want to Believe was awful with this. Especially towards the end, when Mulder fights an attack dog. I only figured that out because I could hear it barking.

Ant10708 The Bourne movies I think starting with the second one ruined every fuckign car chase scene with their retarded quick cuts

MajorScales I think it was the first James bond movie with Daniel Craig made me feel sick at one part...they are up on platforms fighting and swinging from ropes with the camera never seeming to pull back. I found that very aggravating and nauseating.

Kitsa I have a novelty pen that flashes and gives me an instant headache.

Tadao People are getting weaker Darkvare. Pretty soon we can take over the world with loud noises and flashy lights.
Aug 15th, 2009 12:25 PM
darkvare i never thought that this issues would be so common

10,000 Volt Ghost I don't like quick cuts either. I don't mind if they're dynamic quick cuts but most of them are really unnecassary. I.E the opening car chase in Quantum of Solace.

Shrubfest Public Enemies managed to not make me too sick, but it took at least 10 minutes for me to recognise anyones face.

Pretty much any long moving shot will make me sick. The Fastest Indian was the worst. I had to hid in my coat for most of it.

Aimless They did a lot of the shaky cam in Public Enemies, plus the close-up on Johnny's pores wasn't helping. I fell asleep twice.
Aug 15th, 2009 08:02 AM
Zhukov Yes, it was both of those you mentioned. Call me old fashioned, but I do have a weak stomach for things like that.
Aug 15th, 2009 07:43 AM
Kitsa What part of it bothered you?

Most of it didn't get me too badly (unless you watch all the way to the end and realize the full horror of the circumstances).

Aug 15th, 2009 06:19 AM
Zhukov Jesus Christ I could not sit all the way through Irreversible.
Aug 15th, 2009 02:38 AM
ZeldaQueen Yeah, that's one of my biggest problems with Micheal Bay movies (I seriously couldn't tell what was going on half of the time in Transformers).

Blair witch - first i can remember. I watched it on a small screen and dont remember getting sick, but i have a feeling i would now if i saw it on a big screen.
I think Dave Barry said best when he described it as if they strapped a camera to a hyperactive seal's head and had it always pointed at the ground as if the seal were hunting for ants.

Kitsa Well, I never claimed to have crossed the annoyed-sick barrier. I was just saying that the stuff didn't bother me other than to be annoying.

Who knows, they may be deliberately trying to make people sick. They did that in the French cinema release of Irreversible. I think it was during the first fight scene...they played some sort of sound that was specifically designed to make people feel sick to their stomachs. It's the only instance I've heard of, but who's to say other people aren't getting some sort of kick out of messing with moviegoers that way?

whoreable there is a big difference between being annoyed and physically ill.

I am generally annoyed by the shaking in action movies and the speeding up thing, but in short doses i don't really get sick. It is when basically the entire movie is like that when it becomes a problem.

I have gotten sick on boats before(planes i generally do ok). As Tado said it is somewhat different. alot of times in boats and cars you sort of know what to expect and can tell where the horizon is going to go, in a movie you dont get that feeling of control. I never get sick driving a car or a boat. It can only happen when riding.

Maybe its just my problem and im pissed i cant do something as simple as watch a fucking movie anymore. I was curious.

Kitsa Shakycam doesn't bother me but that sped-up shit annoys the fuck out of me. I first started really noticing it with the Dawn of the Dead remake zoombies and 28 Days Later, and now they do it all the damn time.

It's like now sped-up film = automatic scary.
Aug 14th, 2009 11:45 AM
Tadao What about Spiderman when he is jamming through the city?
Aug 14th, 2009 11:33 AM
b_squared The shaky cam bothers me too. I don't know if it was a shaky cam but the Bourne Identity movies gave me a headache. I also hate the movies/ tv shows which have multiple split screens. First person games can make me a little dizzy even on the PC.
Aug 14th, 2009 10:26 AM
Tadao I seriously think it's way different because it's artificial. Your eyes and brain pick up on little inconsistencies and it can fuck with your equilibrium.
