My Horror, Gore, and Violence Limit

Just recently, the second season of Kingdom was released and Mariko and Bay watched the first episode tonight. As far as horror movies/tv goes, Kingdom is relatively tame. I am not a fan of horror movies, or violent movies, so I don’t watch. But I find it interesting that Bay and Mariko enjoy them, but Koa and I don’t. Actually, Koa is okay with watching them, but I will opt not to. I’m even apprehensive about watching Parasite!

Speaking of aversions, I dislike ultra-violent movies and gore in general, particularly dismemberment. Ugh. I used to enjoy Quentin Tarantino movies, but ever since I saw Lucy Liu’s character’s demise in Kill Bill: Volume 1, I cannot watch any of his movies. I recently tried to watch again with Inglourious Basterds, but didn’t make it far. I’ve heard Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is very entertaining, but just hearing about the pool scene is enough to make me say, “Not gonna happen”.

Well, that’s just a quirk of mine. I guess I won’t experience some good movies, but it’s a sacrifice I am willing to make. 😄
