You're talking with a friend about a movie that he saw. He says that a man cuts off his own arm in the movie. You say this because you think it would be too uncomfortable for you to watch.
That sounds a little too intense for me.
When someone tells you about something, and you want to respond to them, use the phrase, "That sounds ___":
That sounds so fun!
Your boss sounds like a real jerk.
Explain why you don't like something using this phrase:
It's too spicy for me.
This textbook is way too easy for me.
The word "intense" means "strong" or "extreme". You use intense with words like these:
It has an intense flavor.
It was an intense experience.
She has a really intense personality.
In the example above, the speaker doesn't want to see the movie because it's too "intense". That means that the emotions that such a story will make him feel are too strong. He's worried that watching the movie will make him feel uncomfortable.
