SERIOUSLY?!?!?!? (not for little eyes)

"The Japanese distributor of "Babel" is warning audiences the movie may cause nausea or headaches...

Gaga Communications has received 15 complaints since the film, starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, opened Saturday in theaters throughout the country, company spokeswoman Aimi Ichikawa said Wednesday."


This has GOT to be a joke, right? People can go watch movies like "Pulp Fiction" and "Fight Club" and even all the "SAW" movies with NO sickness or headaches and NOBODY complains, but "BABEL???" For the love of humanity.

Anything to get out of work, is that what it is? Are they putting some kind of subliminal message in their copies of the movie to punish the Japanese for not working 23 1/2 hour days? Anything for a lawsuit against the producers/distributors? I just don't get it. Makes me want to go see the movie, but the "suggestion" that it may give me headaches and nausea scares me, even though I do still think Brad Pitt is hot.

Give me a break. When I read this article I about fell out of my chair laughing my fool head off. Really. Then I was doing my Cartman impression of "Screw you guys, I'm going home." That's all they really had to say before they left the theatre with their puking migraines.

I'm sure if there is a PMRC for movies, they will get involved in this shit. ("Oh GOD! That movie made my son Johnny a puking mass-murderer, due to his headaches because he saw a movie!!") Then why LET him WATCH it in the FIRST PLACE? Pretty soon they'll start bleeping out all the "f" words in public movies, blurring the blood & gore, and we'll all be just watching Winnie the Pooh movies. Shit, they'll probably start censoring Disney movies soon.

FUCK. (Yep, I said it.)

Next time I'll tell you guys how I REALLY feel. JEEZ. LOL

Anyone have a headache or throwing up during this rant?

Yes, but it's probably because of all the dope I've been doing, and not you. ;)

Does Spiderman come out tomorrow?

No headache or throwing up, but a lot of laughing! ;-)

I think it may have something to do with the jerkiness of the film rather than the topic. But then, the Japanese eat poison blowfish, so what's a headache and nausea to them?

There is a precedent for this. When "Alien" came out, some theatre handed out barf bags.

Oh, and ANY movie that has swirly or jerky camera action will give me headaches and nausea. I nearly lost it after seeing "Strange Days," and my brother warded me off from seeing "Blair Witch Problem" because of that very issue. Motion-sickness is a mood-killer. I have to be careful which amusement park rides I go on!
