NFT: Whats one movie you walked out of the theater on?

LawrenceTaylor56 : 8/12/2019 12:26 pm
Continuing with the recent movie thread.

I'll start. Peter Jacksons King Kong. About 1 hour into the movie someone blurted out "Where the fuck is the monkey?"

I left at hour #3. If you can't finish a movie in under 3 hours, I'm gone. Plus that movie sucked.

and it wasn't actually walked out on. my wife and I and a another couple went out to dinner and then a movie.

the wives picked the movie.

after about 20 minutes of awful dialog and ridiculous plot I faked a stomach ailment and went to the lobby to play video games. Hung out there for about an hour.

then went back to my seat for 15-20 min and said "uh-oh, stomach issue again" and spent the rest of the evening playing video games and people watching.

Otherwise i rarely go to the movies.

I don't know how or why I went to see this movie. It was 1985, so I was about 11 years old and I think the trailer seemed like a fun alien thing, but it was verrrry different when we sat in the theatre. My friends and I bailed about 30 minutes in and played video games in the lobby at the old Tenplex on Route 4 until one of our parents picked us up.

I actually saw that in the theater, but didn't walk out. I was on a date and my date had chosen it, so no matter how putrid it was, I was compelled to sit there with her until the very end.

Fear Dot Com was the one time I did walk out. I would have walked out of Suspect Zero but I fell asleep during it.

but we did go in for the start of the movie and didn't last long, just an awful, awful movie.

Very possibly. There are bad movies, we all have seen them, and then there is Leonard Part 6. It's almost like they couldn't make a movie that bad if they were trying to make a movie that bad. And it's not even in the category of so bad it's good like the previously mentioned Roadhouse. It's just awful.

Didn't see it in the movies, but would agree it was atrocious. It was so bad I kept watching it thinking "something must happen to make this interesting!" It never did. It started off uninteresting and never deviated from that.

Between that and Suburbicon, I feel like Matt Damon owes me some money. Those movies are both abominations.

the thought of someone sitting through two or more hours of shitty entertainment just because they paid for it is funny to me.

I haven't been to a movie since in over 10 years or more, but if a movie is bad enough, there is no getting upset - not sure if people say they are upset, especially (and only) if others agree with me, I have no issue walking out and doing something more worthwhile with my valuable time.

So when I go now, I am going specifically to see a specific movie. When I was young, however, and smart phones didn't exist, there were plenty of times when a group of us would be sitting around and someone would say, "hey, let's go to a movie" and we'd get in the car and go to the theater and see what was playing. Might not heard of one, but the poster and the description sounded cool so we'll give it a shot. That's how I ended up seeing Suspect Zero, which was awful.

I don't think everyone is as selective as you I guess. How many replies to this thread? Over 60 people in a couple hours listed movies they walked out of. I did not actually walk out per se, but I saw a shitty movie and I posted the reasons.

Also, during high school I worked as an usher at a movie theater and it was a long time ago with less access to information before going, but people walked out - and got a refund if they did so in the first 30 min.

it probably still happens now.

You had your local paper's review section, a handful of national critics, and that was it. No way to readily access those reviews either.

used to take us to the movies when we were kids. She made us walk out of Biloxi Blues during the prostitute scene and took me to the lobby for the end of Back to the Future because she thought my heart was beating too fast. This prompted a subsequent doctor's visit which was unnecessary, the movie just had an exciting ending, especially for a 6 year old.

I never made the decision on my own.

I haven't seen that movie yet, but when I saw the trailer and heard it wasn't Elton singing, I lost interest.

The Russian Roulette scenes were just too intense for me ... I still canít watch the movie without skipping some parts... though I once read some of this was pure Hollywood.


I didnt have a problem with the Russian Roulette scene. What I did have a problem with was that LONG LONG LONG wedding scene! I seem to remember that that thing went on forever! Ive been to shorter actual weddings. I havent watched that movie in years, but if I ever see it again, pretty clear where ill be hitting the fast forward button.

You had your local paper's review section, a handful of national critics, and that was it. No way to readily access those reviews either. That's how I ended up asking my parents to take me to Howard the Duck many moons ago - it looked funny in the commercials and we had little to tell us otherwise.

We didn't walk out of that one, but a bunch of people did.


I had a roommate back in my military days whose favorite movies were Howard the Duck and Spaceballs. Seriously.....and Im talking all time here....no Godfather, Jaws, ANYTHING ELSE...we used to ride him about that fact all the time but he stuck to his guns, just loved both of them.

The Big Lebowski is actually a brilliant reimagining of Raymond Chandler's seminal novel The Big Sleep.

If you did not enjoy it, then I would suggest checking out Turner Classic Movies. I think they have an Errol Flynn marathon coming up soon. Did you know he was actually an expert fencer in real life?

Watched it last night. The actor looks a lot like Elton circa 1973-ish. But the his voice is awful. Cringe-worthy.

First off, who didn't go into Rocky Horror without having some idea of what it was?

Why would someone literally walk out? Flick is a pisser, and if you've got a good, active crowd, a unique and fun experience.

there was nothing left to see.

With Braveheart, when I saw it originally in the movies, I did see a few people leave when they started torturing him to death near the end. The entire tone of the movie changed at that point. Instead of draw and quarter, it should have been draw and Bitcoin.

But for "SWAT", I kept getting interrupted by a phone call, and once the plot was figured out (it was pretty easy to figure out), I stalled before the very ending to answer it.

Walked out of District 8 for an emergency, then went to a later showing to see the end. I probably shouldn't have gone back.

Twice.

Took a date to Starship Troopers. What a mistake that was. I had loved the book, which is why we went, but the movie was complete crap. A waste of time.

The other was taking my dad to see League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Again garbage that push the suspension of disbelief too far. Another completely awful movie.

Really to which one?

Up in the Air was well-done and the acting was great, those are my two favorite actresses but the plot just didn't interest me at all. I left and went into another movie.

Bridesmaids, I do not remember much of the movie at all to be honest. I went with a group and then I think I just left for another movie that was pretty bad but I was just glad I was out of there. If I remember correctly a bunch of women getting ready for a wedding in a train like fashion is not in my wheelhouse. Sorry.

I am also not the biggest fan of Melissa McCarthy. Holy shit, I cannot stand her. The more outlandish she acts the more she sucks.
