I came across a movie on cable and to say it was triggery would be like saying the Hulk has some mild anger management issues. Thing is the movie was not high profile so checking out a movie you haven''t heard of can be like trigger-minefield. These are a few lower profile movies to be careful of if you want to avoid triggery stories.

About Adam
28 Hotel Rooms
Closer
Incendiary
Before the Devil Knows You''re Dead

Feel free to add to the list.

Yep there are those for me too.

Ever hear a song called "Redneck Crazy"? That one triggers me. Essentially I've gone redneck crazy in some ways and they make light of it.

Strangely right after D-Day for me a video was circulating the internet of a cheating wife getting beheaded by her husband. I didn't think that was funny either. But my WW really hated it.

No, I'm not much of Country/Western fan. I looked it up and you're not wrong about the song.
The two that come to my mind are "The Rain" by Oran "Juice" Jones and "I don't ever wanna see you again" by Uncle Sam. Both came out in the 80s. R&B songs always seem to hit the bullseye on this stuff.

Tekken??? Really? Wow.

MylarPineapples posted 1/11/2014 23:56 PM

Silverhopes, I watched "He's Just Not That Into You" on TV the other night. I actually hadn't seen it before, and I did find it very triggery. Pretty well ruined Bradley Cooper for me for awhile I think.

In Tekken, could have sworn he had a girlfriend in the beginning and then was busy getting way too close to the other girl in the competition. But I could be wrong - I would be very happy if I'm wrong.

Yeah, "He's Just Not That Into You" was just one of many where Scarlett Johansson plays the other woman.

The Notebook. Terrible movie...not sure why anyone would rate it highly.

Brandon808 posted 1/12/2014 00:14 AM

Yeah, ScarJo was the OW in Match Point, Lost in Translation, The Other Boleyn Girl, and The Prestige.

one of BFs favorite movies became a trigger, at least for me

Goon

Because it depicts tru luuuuuurrrrrrv

silverhopes posted 1/12/2014 00:22 AM

That's right, The Prestige! Just saw that recently on TV for the first time.

MylarPineapples posted 1/12/2014 00:23 AM

I love the way The Notebook portrays the elderly husband's devotion to his wife. But yeah, the parts where she runs off on her fiancé to try out her old relationship one more time suck.

It doesn't though, it just depicts some slut cheating on her devoted partner!

Yes, that's why I wrote 'luuuuuurrrrrrv' instead of love

p.s. There have been a few threads about lurv vs love. Luuurrrrv being the infatuation, childish, immature, delusional fantasy the AP's engage in and believe they've found the proverbial romantic fantasy come-to-life.

Seren-fucking-depity

I loved that movie until I read texts about it going back and forth between the 2 shit birds

Now I want to piss on it

Stronger4it posted 1/12/2014 08:59 AM

A fish called Wanda!

Loved it for years. Did not think John Cleese (boring, toenail clipping barrister) was a cad for stepping out with Jamie lee Curtis (slutty criminal). But it is so close to reality.

Still funny. I just look at it more critically.

painfulpast posted 1/12/2014 09:05 AM

The Notebook definitely

And oddly, A Fish called Wafflehouse Wanda just made the list
