movies are a trigger

The biggest trigger to flashbacks are movies. Even the slightest hint of rape or torture in a movie forces me to look away and hum to myself until it's over. How do I separate myself from movies so I can enjoy them like everyone else? They're not real, but they feel so real when they're showing real things that happened in my life. How do you separate your emotions from entertainment like movies and books?
