    Default Have you ever walked out of a movie at the theatre?

    I only ever did this once when I watched The Passion of the Christ as it was just ridiculous.

    I suppose technically I walked out of The Accused with Jodie Foster but I was in a friend's house at the time. I couldn't handle how graphic the gang rape scene was.

    How about you guys?

    Yes but only because I got called into work, I would've stayed otherwise, lol.

    It was one of the Matrix sequels, can't remember which one. So I didn't miss much anyway? I went back and watched it again that night.

    Never, but I also don't go to theatres much. I don't have friends with very good taste in movies. :P

    I rarely go to them, but no... and doubt I would. I have too much patience that "it'll start to get good soon, I'm sure" and at worst would just end up standing up at the credits thinking "oh, it didn't". Even then I have reasonable tolerance for what others think is rubbish... I mean... I did stop watching the DVD of the Star Wars prequel but only because I had to unexpectedly go out - didn't get around to resuming it admittedly but didn't think it was that bad.

    I did during the movie Stuck on You. That was because I was with a friend's family and they were appalled at the movie though. I rode with them. Otherwise I wouldn't do that because I feel it would be a waste of money and time to walk out even if it is bad.

    Never, but I have seen people walk out. Once during Kill Bill. While the movie is violent, I could sense that the people left because the movie wasn't what they were expecting. They walked out at a completely random part, so I assumed they were expecting a typical action movie.

    When I was younger I remember that the theater for the second Crow movie that was nearly empty to begin with. The only other people were in the very back. When the movie ended I turned around almost immediately and they were gone. I don't blame them. That's probably one of the most boring sequels ever made. I was young and really into the first movie, so I wasn't worn down by bad sequels yet. It's funny I didn't see that coming back then in retrospect.

    The most recent time is during The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I don't think I need to say which part because if you seen it you know what I am referring to. I enjoyed the movie and I am resilient to dark stuff, and even that got to me. Though, I give the film props for realistically showing how awful such an act can be. Other movies tend to be tasteless when they try stuff like that. Anyway, I don't blame anyone for walking out of that one. Though the marketing did STRONGLY suggest the movie would be no camping trip, most people weren't prepared for it.

    But yeah, I never found myself walking out of a bad movie. I just grin and bear it and then I find it fun discussing or ripping apart the movie with friends afterwards.

    Yeah one of the Spider-Man movies. The one with Venom. I dunno, it was pretty bad.

    No, but I have fallen asleep at the theater watching particularly boring movies.

    No. I paid for it, I'm staying to the end. In general, people over here never walk out of movies. I guess it might be a cultural thing.

    I haven't been in years but, I don't believe I have ever walked out on one.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.
