    I'd probably wonder why it bothered me so much if I watched it now, but, yeah, I'm not gonna give it a try :rotfl:

    Me too! It feels so good to get that off my chest and find out I'm not alone!

    I could have said "different" or even "weird." My childhood was wonderful though, and shouldn't have anything negative associated with it, but it wasn't the way other people were raised now or then.

    How funny! I wouldn'T have thought twice about reading "unusual" or "weird" (or uncommon, or differnt or any number of other descriptors actually) but "singular" is such an unusual choice it stuck in my mind for sure.

    Hhhmmm, it's a word I use often so I didn't even think about it. Our various semantic choices are so fun to discuss. I love hearing the regional idioms and colloquialisms.

    I wouldn’t say I hated it, but I disliked Fantasia. My whole school went to see it in a theater and I was so disappointed. I thought it was boring, and couldn’t wait for it to end.

    I think I was in 5th or 6th grade and my family watch Ben Hur on Easter Sunday. I had nitemares for weeks, thinking I could get leprosy and would be banished to an island. A lot of my class mates must have watched it too, because our teacher had to explain to all of us, that you will no longer get that disease.

    I was upset when I learned in high school the disease still exists.

    Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Gave me such nightmares.

    I couldn’t believe when they did a remake. Ugh!

    I was only 4 when these came out down I’m sure it was reruns I saw, but those talking monkey people scared the crap out of me! I still don’t like them!

    You click the "insert" symbol (between the film and camera icons at the top of the reply box) and select spoiler.
    It will ask you to input a title, which is what shows up on the button, and click <continue>.
    Then you type what you want hidden in between the brackets, like this - [...]HERE[...]

    Jaws. It's not so much that I hated it but that it scared the crap out of me.

    As an adult I've grown to really like the movie--have no idea why that changed. However even nowadays being in bodies of water with no way to see exactly what is around me still gives me some unease--I'll do it just gives me a bit of uneasiness.

    I wasn't a young child when it came out (I was 15) but I really cannot stand elf I just do not see the appeal of it and I actually like Will Ferrell.

    I loved Jaws simply because my dad let me watch it when he probably wasn't supposed to! :laughing: (My mom and aunt had gone shopping or something and left all four kids with my dad and uncle.)

    thoroughly modern millie, gave me nightmares for years. It really wasn’t something to take an 8 year to.

    Another vote for the Wizard of Oz. I hated those flying monkeys and was convinced that a green faced witch lived in my closet FOR YEARS. I made my dad check the closet every night when he tucked me in. Ugh.
