Really gross out movies like Freddy got Fingered but not Scary movie
Anything in which Robin Williams weeps
I Spit on Your Grave....utter shite!
what I meant was is , do you get offended by blood and guts, language, nudity, ect
I'm, personally, offended by very little. Crash and 8MM were "close" to offending me.
I agree with Brian:
The movies that really offend me are ones that insult my intellingence.
I'm really offended by....nothing. Well, nothing legal, anyway.
But, in your thread title and in your original post, you made it seem like you wanted specific films....
Rules of Engagement is without a doubt the most offensive movie I have ever seen. I probably can't even explain why without violating the forum's ban on politics, but essentially the movie claims all little arab kids are gun-wielding terrorists and killing unarmed prisoners of war is OK, especially if they're Viet Cong, because, the Viet Cong would have done the same thing, and would admire you for it.
A completly disgusting movie.
What offends me? Big-budget crap like Armageddon and Batman & Robin. All that money, and that's the best they could come up with?
The CIA agent bumps off that autistic kid's parents...why?
The autistic kid doesn't know what that code is, so how would he be a problem?
I hate movies with plot holes like this...
Blood Sucking Freaks was truly appalling.
I hated Mercury Rising too, but that isn't the most offensive type of movie. I would have to say movies like Requiem for a Dream (even though it was very well acted and very realistic), Armageddon (stupid and waste of money), and Freddy GOt Fingered types.
Nothing is offensive to me.
Much like several of my HTF contemporaries, I'm most offended by the simpering audience manipulation so prevalent in shit like Patch Adams, Double Jeopardy, Stepmom, Jack, The Other Sister and I am Sam.
On a purely moral level, I could see how stuff like Bloodsucking Freaks and I Spit on Your Grave could be quite offensive. The Faces of Death series, in particular, made me a bit nauseous. (I saw two of 'em and they're just nasty.)
Also, I have a big problem with what I see as "sure-thing sequel product" flicks. Mindless and lazy junk like The Mummy Returns, Batman & Robin and Blair Witch 2. The producers seemingly know for sure that 'name recognition' will ensure a healthy payday, so there's no motivation at all to make a quality piece of entertainment. There are always exceptions to this rule, but they seem pretty few and far between.
An intresting thing about the Batman Movies is that Warner thought the first two movies were too "dark", they thought "Hey lets make it funny and campy" so they brought in Schumacher who totally distroyed the series.
I'm offended and disgusted by the lack of nudity in todays horror films, back in the 70's you could always count on naked girls running around screaming while some horror thingy was chasing them (or did I dream that), and Hammer Horror films were always great value for money, it was almost impossible to have a Hammer vampire flick without at least one lesbian vampire biting some babes breasts (hang on while I open a window), check out the classic 'Vampire Lovers', the sublime 'Lust for a Vampire', or the incredible 'Twins of Evil', which had the gorgeous Collinson twins sans clothing and....[member faints].

Steve, You ALWAYS make me laugh.
Ones that annoy me are the typical brainless teen movie and movies that rely on special effects and offer little in the way of intelligent plot, insight, character development, etc.
Really Steve. I mean theres hardly no T&A in horror films anymore. Thats what their lacking!
I was offended by Lean on Me. I thought the principal was a bad guy.
