Yes, it was both of those you mentioned. Call me old fashioned, but I do have a weak stomach for things like that.

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.

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.

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.
God speed you meddling kids.

People are getting weaker Darkvare. Pretty soon we can take over the world with loud noises and flashy lights.

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

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.

The Bourne movies I think starting with the second one ruined every fuckign car chase scene with their retarded quick cuts
I'm all for the idea of stoning the rapists, but to death...? That's a bit of a stretch, but I think the system will work. - Geggy

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.
"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing." "But," says Man, "The Babel fish proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't." "Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanished in a puff of logic.

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!

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.

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.

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.
Just... no.
