|Comment:||Project X made me so sick I had to leave the theater, and i was on a date. I really wish
these movies would warn people before hand that they are like that. Glad this page is
|Comment:||I saw "The Place Beyond the Pines" 22 hrs ago and I still feel sick! Unbelievable camera movement right at the start and then various places through the movie. And that was from the back row of the theatre! Be warned.|
|Comment:||Saw Beasts of the Southern Wild today in the theater, and it did
me in after about 20 minutes. Eight hours later, and I still have
a headache. Had to leave the theater to try to get some fresh
air. I am amazed that others could actually sit through it. Sad,
since I heard it was very good.
|Comment:||Have just found this page. This could have saved me many an upset stomach and a lot of money in useless cinema tickets and meals eaten just before going into the theatre. I am one of those who actually have to go out of the theatre to throw up. As a teenager I was sick all over the lady sitting in front of me when I stood up to leave the first IMAX theatre I ever visited. Thankyou for this page and your helpful comments.|
|Comment:||Thanks for this website, and please, everyone keep sending in the generic rating for my head and stomach appreciate this!
~~ I would like to ask if Redbox or NetFlix, would consider putting a motion sickiness warning on their movies? Or at least ask those who email their "reviews" of the movie would consider that? I always when sending in a review put in large caps the warning of motion sickiness! Plus how can we ask hollywood to PAN slower the camera for they are losing people in their audience?!!
|Comment:||Worst movie for movie sickness hands down Where the Wild Things |
Art. Threw up after the first 15 minutes. Next, Hunger Games which
I just saw tonight. (Wish I had seen this website before I went.)
The first two Paranormal Activities weren't awesome either and I
even watched them on TV.
|Comment:||Wish I checked this before I went to see Hunger Games, it was wicked crowded |
leaving only the very front row seats. Guess my overly excited self forgot to look
away when the camera went unsteady for a bit and of course naturally I ran out
|Comment:||Saw Hunger Games at 1pm today and I am still sick at 7pm. Damn it Hollywood! Stop the insanity! |
|Comment:||HOME VIDEOS ARE EASIER TO WATCH! At first I thought that I must have gotten some bad concession food. Then it hit me about the time she tried to shoot that deer: THE VIDEOGRAPHER HAD ADVANCED PARKINSON'S, ATE AND DRANK CIGARETTES AND COFFEE AND WAS A WITHDRAWING JUNKIE WITH A POPSCICLE STUCK UP HIS @$$. That was just prior to ME hitting the bathroom door at 125 mph. I never get motion sickness from ANYTHING... until I saw The Hunger Games. I finally made it back in while they were training for the games but I found the back of the theater to be a better view. (The screen was framed by the wall from that distance and the shaking slowed a bit.)I would never go to see this on IMAX. Maybe the DVD will be better for those of us who didn't know to bring barf bags, Dramamine, and Tylenol. Maybe the sequels will be afforded a tripod, a professional videographer, and a better director. It's the next morning and I am still hungover. SAD:-(|
|Comment:||I only found this site after seeing The Hunger Games and experiencing intense |
disappointment - along with the nausea. I hope the movie industry smartens up.
Thank you for providing this service. Now we need one for some contemporary
architecture. . .
|Comment:||Thanks for the continued feedback. I confess, Movie Hurl is a little "locked in" to a four-level rating system at this point since the existing database only contains four levels. However, I have modified the wording in the rating choice drop-down menu to more clearly indicate the intended usage of each of the four levels.|
I will continue to consider these kinds of design issues and if I can find a way to incorporate a fifth level into the existing database without breaking the existing data, I will consider it.
Thank you very much for your support and participation.
|Comment:||I agree with Kristin. You need a "had to run to the toilet" rating. And I would |
use that rating on Hunger Games which I could only stand 20 minutes of last
night before running out and barely making it to the stall ....... so sad.
|Comment:||Thanks for the comment Kristin. I'm not sure that the problem being addressed necessarily requires greater "granularity" in the rating system, but I agree with you that the level-4 descriptions in the drop-down menus could be a little more inclusive of the upper-end of the spectrum. Level 4 is certainly intended to represent your description. I'll take your comment under consideration as I refine the site's layout and design.|
|Comment:||I think you need a "5" rating. For movies that actually made you |
vomit. I have three that would make that rating.
|Comment:||I saw Hunger Games last night and had to close my eyes through at least half of it. I left the theatre and had to sit outside in the cool air for about 20 minutes before I felt ok. It made me so mad I started crying. I'm sick of getting sick in movies!|
|Comment:||Black Swan is a great movie but sadly belongs in the top ten list IMO.|

|Comment:||We found your website on Yahoo Answers a few hours too late (just saw the Hunger |
Games and rated it 4 *s). We love it though!
|Comment:||To "Anonymous" who suggested adding Catfish in an earlier comment, the user interface lets you add new movies yourself. Scroll to the bottom, type in a new movie name, give it a rating and submit it. You'll simultaneously add the movie to the database and give it its first rating.|
Thank you very much.

So bad with the shaking camera.

|Comment:||Catfish! Add it to your list! Threw up for 45 minutes in the theater bathroom. Had |
to lay on the floor in there (ewww).
|Comment:||Thanks for the feedback Jennifer. I'm tremendously disappointed to see Hunger Games doing so badly on Movie Hurl...but hey, that's why I created Movie Hurl in the first place.|
Thanks for participating.
|Comment:||Thank you for this site. It's nice to know I'm not the only one |
who loves going to the movies, but hates how some of them make me
feel. I saw Hunger Games last night and only watched the first
half. I was so sad, I LOVE the books!
|Comment:||I appreciate the feedback everyone. I'm glad people appreciate the site. A recent comment asks whether older movies should be added. I certainly have no argument against it, although it is worth noting that the motion-sickness effect is stronger on a large screen, so people who watch older movies (and therefore watch them on TVs) are at less risk for this problem. Once a movie is out of the theaters, its relevance to this website is diminished...but no entirely, so let's keep a record of this problem anyway.|
|Comment:||Im not sure if this is just focus on newer movies but, back in 2007 I saw a movie |
called "Primeval" and I only made it 20 minutes in before the ' Shakey Cam'
made me sick...
|Comment:||Great idea of a site. I just made it through 40 minutes of the new movie |
Chronicle before having to leave the theater due to movie sickness. It's an
hour later now and I still feel ill, but I haven't hurled, yet. Ugh. I wish I had
known the entire movie was shot with a handheld camera.
Another movie I had to walk out on was Children of Men. But it hasn't been
in theaters for years so I guess my warning won't help anyone. I really hate
these directors who make movies like this.
|Comment:||I also plan to advertise this site, as it's just what I've been looking for. I feel like the general public isn't even aware this is a thing. I'm embarrassed when I have to leave a party or tell friends I have to sit in the back or leave a movie to vomit. |
I wish movie review aggregators would at least list "hand-held" or "documentary-style" in a movie's general info, so I'd know what to expect. But this site is really great!
|Comment:||I went to see 'Conviction' this morning, and had to go outside |
while the trailers were on as the volume was so loud. I noticed
that almost as soon as the film started, I felt sick, even though
it was steadycam. I've also noticed that just the memory of
feeling sick before at the cinema can start to make me nauseous.
|Comment:||Excellent Sebastian. Thanks for the support.|
|Comment:||Keith, I am apalled that this site does not have more movies. We (not you) are probably at fault. |
Guys, c'mon, let's promote this via facebook or whatever to all your friends whose head spin with certain movies!
I am a software developer and yesterday a movie called "Tren Paraguay" (which is great BTW) almost killed me. Ended up vomiting, and going to the doctor for some medication.
I was ready to do somethig like this myself just out of rage but I'm glad I found your site.
Now my job is to promote it.
|Comment:||God bless you for creating this site. As I have gotten older, my motion sickness |
has become worse. It's positively awful when I get movie-sickness. I couldn't
agree with you more on all you have said and applaud you for taking on all those
stupid directors who think hand-held camera footage is edgy. I was trying to
watch "Babel" this morning and after 25 minutes I was toast. I spent the entire rest
of my Sunday with a headache and nauseea. I was ticked-off, needless to day.
|Comment:||If its a jumpy-camera movie, just watch it on a tiny, tiny screen. Motion sickness for me is a field-of-view effect. Even silly IMAX movies make me hurl, since they're on a huge screen.|
