Maybe not the reaction you were looking for?

Apparently a new movie has made its audience thrown up and faint at the premier. The headlines make it sound a great deal worse that it was though, one man threw up and one woman fainted.
Not exactly the whole cinema then...?

The offending scene comes from Danny Boyles new film, 127 Hours, a true life disaster movie which shows the main character sawing his own arm off with a pocket knife. Gruesome, I suppose, but for years doom-sayers have been telling us that TV and movies will make us all hardened to gore and violence, obviously they were wrong!

Yes, but now that you've seen time it won't mean as time you'll have to do something even more extreme to get the same results!
