Wild (although the movie edited out the lung part of the lung cancer bit, which I took Cheryl Strayed to task for here http://lisa.ericgoldman.org/general/every-last-one-of-us-can-do-better-than-give-up-following-up-with-cheryl-strayed).

I am right there with you. No, no, no. Just. No.

How about TV series? I’ve been binge-watching Parenthood, but I’m about to stop due to The Cancer.
There is a cancer movie that I’ve watched several times: Wit
Marley and Me (ok … just being a pet owner killed that for me but cancer didn’t help)
Cancer sneaks into MANY films. I had a small hiccup watching Guardians of the Galaxy last summer. They don’t say the mom in the beginning dies of cancer, but her bald head makes is clear. The rest of the film was great, but the first few minutes were unexpected, and hard. Especially as I tend to avoid the films you’ve listed.

I can’t watch any cancer movies, really. One reason is because they miss a lot of important details — like why not show severe constipation, for example? How about people’s dumb comments to patients? I’ve been bothered by the perceptions these movies create.
Two movies I can no longer watch: “My Life” (1993) — this one hurts my heart — and “Sweet November” (2001) — I am touchy about this one and will write about it soon
