If ever there was a movie created to be the MOST depressing movie ever... well... okay .. the most depressing american movie ever (german *comedies* are kind of morose) it would be a toss up, I think, between Deep Impact and What Dreams May Come.

I'm sure I could think of some others if I really put my mind to it.
But I remember feeling like crap after seeing What Dreams May Come. It was just... horrid. Horrid horrid horrid. Not even ENTERTAINING horrid.
It was just depressive, bleak, and uninteresting.
*bad* combination.

Deep Impact I just saw for the first time.
Basically... if you live east of the ohio or tenesee river valley, don't watch this movie.
They actually NAME MY CITY ON A SIGN in the way of the incoming path of water.
And we're not that famous of a damned city. Yes, I realize they showed scenes of new york being destroyed... but it's new york.
EVERY disaster movie shows it being destroyed.
Well, except for the volcano movies we had.

I don't usually watch disaster movies. I watched this one because I knew Chad liked it. And I made a lil list of movies awhile back that Chad liked and I hadn't seen.

I'm going to have to rewind it, I think... to see where the hell the two kids lived. WHERE were they that they could get up a mountain and be safe *that* fast?
I don't buy it.

So,... I think I'll have some coffee now. ::nods::

Vertigo. Hands down.
Ok, not so much depressing but the saddest goddamn movie ever. I love it - don't get me wrong - but it's so tragic and, well, SAD. It's not a thriller, it's not suspense, it's a love story and goddamn if it ain't a fine one, albeit a did-I-mention-SAD one. These two people are cursed to love and despreately long for each other but never have it work out. The bits with Jimmy Stewart trying to make the new girl into the old one are simply crushing. Look it up on AOL at Keyword "OUCH".

I'm just sayin'...

Possibly Hitch's best film but, yeah, horribly, horribly depressing. It took me a couple of viewings with commentary to get past the visceral reaction and realize that it really is brilliant.
