The other time, I tried using my working shoes. :bsmilie: Placed 2 filters in between the rubber soles, and turn. Remember to focus on the turning strength and not the strength on pushing them together. Also, that time my one is a small one 52mm only. Big one, your soles may dirty your filters. Try to protect it first, before trying. :bsmilie:

Its all about leverage. I think if you focus on turning it than pressing hard onto the filter it will work. Thats what wrenches do. They don't grip the filter too tight and also allows you to concentrate your force onto turning it.

keep trying.. maybe everytime you try it'll get 1mm closer to loosening up.. since you didn't screw it tight means maybe expansion or smth..
