Comment:Just had my first experience with being ill from a movie - Earth to Echo. I left the theater and threw up. It is 48 hours later and I am still slightly sensitive to motion. I joined this in order to NEVER see a movie like that again.

Comment:This site is a good idea. You should make the average ratings available generically. (If they are already ignore this suggestion.) I would also suggest expanding the usefulness of the site by polling when the movie sickness occurred. Perhaps general description of what kind of sickness. Person's age may also be a factor. When I was younger these movies never bothered me.
Overall a good idea!

Comment:This site is a great idea. You should definitely do some social media promotions via Facebook, Twitter, and other links. I would love to see this site grow and become more widely used, and therefore, more accurate due to a wider range of participants. If you need money for the upkeep, throw on some non-irritating ads and open a PayPal donations link.

Comment:After fighting off movie sickness 2 nights in a row after
watching Million Dollar Arm (very inspiring movie, but zooming
close up face shots,etc.) one night, then Godzilla the next
night and having the roughest weekend because of movie sickness,
I googled "What to do when nauseous from movie camera shakiness"
and found this web site. Left a rating for Godzilla, hoping to
leave a rating soon for X-Men.

Thanks for this web site! And thanks to those who are
contributing. Your comments have finally helped me to accept I
just won't be able to watch some highly recommended movies. (I
tried hard to watch Cpt. Phillips, but after getting nauseous,
feeling hot, and getting a headache, I had to leave, noticing
that I was the only one in a large audience that left. Now I
won't bother to suffer so long, thinking I should be able to
override it.) Also, appreciate the explanation of what causes
movie induced motion sickness. Overcame car sickness as a kid,
didn't have problems on the ocean, but have movie sickness.

Comment:Thank you so much for creating this site! This is a real problem for me - and I am so glad you are fixing it. I have put postings on Reddit and IMDB suggesting somebody creates such an index, but did not get much response. I am so happy to find out the other people have the same views and want to fix the problem! I had just about decided to code my own website - when I found that you had done the job!

Just for info: I had searched and searched for a site like this and not found anything. I only got directed here after a posting on IMDB. This is such a great website that want other people who hate shakey-cam movies to find it more easily. Perhaps there is more to be done on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to get this site noticed by more people?

Well Done!

Re: Hunger Games

What a demented piece of garbage!

Base concept:
The Capitol rounds up 24 children every year to watch the children kill each-
other until one is left.

Note to author:
Anyone who can dream the concept and develop a story of children killing other
children for the entertainment of adults need some serious help. Possibly also
some serious medication to treat whatever is broken in your head.

You...are very sick.

Comment:Felt sick last night during Captain Phillips and this was the
first time I thought to look it up online and I found this site.
I think I was alright until half way but I guess the effects had
been working on me slowly from the start because I still felt
ill going to bed.
First experience was with Die Hard 3 during the central park
driving but we were sitting in the front row (never again, I
always sit at the back now). Same during Cloverfield and
Quarantine when watching at home, seems to take the first hour
before I realise the room is moving.
Also with computer games, first time was Echo the Dolphin
playing alone, now I get sick if I watch a friend playing -
mostly on first person shooters.

barely made it through the first 30 seconds as the characters are bouncing around
their home in VT and in their car ride. Fast-forward to the beach in Somalia!?!? No

in....and that was fine.

Comment:Captain Phillips does every thing it can to make you movie sick.
I was too sick after 10 minutes to get up from my chair. The
entire move is using the shaky cam with constant bright and dark
images. Even with my eyes closed for 80% of the movie the nausea
would not go away. Most of the Somalians did not speak English,
so the translation was on screen which I could not open my eyes
to read. Too many close ups in the film. I knew I was in
trouble when I noticed the orange peel texture of Tom Hanks
face. This movie was way worse than Hunger Games.

In summary: Shaky camera for the entire movie, lots of closeups,
many foreign language closed captions.

Comment:Regarding "All is Lost" and "Gravity." Saw "All is Lost" today. Felt so motion sick
I had to step out half-way through just to breathe and settle my stomach. I
returned after 5-10 minutes, determined to finish it. When I was back in the
theater, I often had to close my eyes or look at the wall fixtures for balance and
finally just wanted it to end. It's been 10 hours since I left the theater and I still
feel slightly off. Conversely, I saw "Gravity" and had a only a few brief moments
of vertigo which didn't interfere with my enjoyment at all. Go figure.

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: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.

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: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.

Cheers!

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.

Cheers!

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: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.

You rock!

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.
