Super 8, X-Men: First Class, Rubber
Super 8: Not VF (v free), but totally worth seeing! There is that definite gloss of 80s adventure movie nostalgia which I find totally charming with the special effects that add an air of realism and excitement to the whole thing, and the innocent romance is adorable.
There is an instance of IV where v is mentioned briefly in a conversation toward the beginning of the movie when the main character has just arrived at school, so if you would like to plug your ears, watch out for the red headed kid with braces to come out of the school plug your ears and hum the Jeopardy theme one time. It is not descriptive or anything so if your not one of the uber-sensitive, you can take it.
There are two not VF scenes, both inflicted by the same character, so feel free to hate the friend in glasses. What a pussy.
The first is after the train has crashed. Time passes while the main character is explores the crash by himself which is fine, but then he reaches a clearing reunited with his friend and then yuck. It’s rather sudden, and I’ve only seen the movie one time, so if you want to triangulate this incident better in the comments, it would be greatly appreciated.
The second scene is when the kids are on the bus and the soldier is pulled out the door by the creature. Close your eyes and hum the jeopardy theme two times, do not forget the modulation, because ew.
X Men: First Class: VF, and an excellent superhero period piece. By far my favorite X Men movie (all of which are VF, pleasantly), It is the first one that does handles the genocide theme really well, and the cast is awesome.
Rubber: VF with an *, but another really fun movie. It is utterly absurd, and if you really embrace the premise laid out for you in a fantastic monologue in the beginning of the movie, you are bound to have a good time.
There is an incident where a bunch of the cast members are poisoned, and there is a lot of moaning and holding of stomachs, and I totally squirmed through the scene, and them another character is poisoned and he is moaning and squirming, but nothing happens. Trust me!
