Walked out of a theater during a movie? 

"Godzilla 1984" when the idiots ran to the elevator after Godzilla smashed half of the building they were in.

Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven". How this was hailed a great Western is beyond me.  And, yes, I did go back and watch it on DVD and still feel the same way.

As painful as it may seem, even if I turn a movie off I always go back and finish it later.  Sometimes, I'll watch a movie in 3 or 4 small increments over a period of a week or more.  My most recent effort is CONQUEST (1983), a horrible, boring Lucio Fulci sword-and-sorcery movie.  I've already sat through 2 segments of it and I have about 40 minutes to go.  The entire movie is headache-inducing.  It uses hazy, foggy cinematography that's really difficult to watch and extremely annoying.  But I'll get to the end of it one way or another . . .

I'm with you.  I've never turned a movie off for good, though there are a few that were so bad it took two sittings.  I refuse to let the badness of the movie defeat me.  I can take whatever Hollywood can throw at me: even HEAVEN'S GATE!

There have been quite a few throughout the years.

The most recent one I can think of, is Edmund with William H Macy.

I was given a page from the script for my acing class a couple of years ago.
I couldn't find the character's motivation, so I rented the movie.

'Round about the brothel scene, I decided this guy had no motivation, & turned it off.
I found it hard to believe that anybody could be that stupid. I think we were supposed to hate the character in Edmund, but it worked a little too well for me. So, afterwards I started trying to play the character with this "Early Bart Simpson" attitude.

I'll tell ya', the Meisner method of acting is different, but it never really did it for me quite as well as the "Too Darned Much Television" method.

Since then, I've started notice certain things about the directing & editing of movies based on works originally meant for theatre & not cinema. (Particularly, I've learned there actually is a difference.)

Maybe I should give Devil Girl from Mars another chance.

Lessee...

Tomie- Boring.  Just boring.  Couldn't get into it, and eventually found that I didn't want to.

Ultra Violet- I quit when she got to the cemetery and the one guy she'd been fighting throughout the movie said, "Are you serious?" with far too much emphasis behind it.  That had been enough.

The Craving- Just couldn't get into it.

Cheerleader Massacre- Never before have I shut a movie off because it had too much plot.  This really should have just been a mindless gore flick. 

The Heirloom- Also couldn't get into it.

And I've never walked out of a theatrical movie, though I've come close before.  I wanted to walk out on Primary Colors, but my ride still wanted to watch the movie.

Recently started watching Saw IV and just got totally bored with it even in all the gore.  Stopped halfway through and don't really care to finish it.

Anaconda - Hunt for the Blood Orchid - This was so clichéd is made me angry.  I was correctly predicting the next line of dialog, and I'd never seen it before.  Got to utterly clichéd scene #15 and I just couldn't take it any more.

Death Tunnel - bah!  Unwatchable.  Turned it off after 10 minutes.

The Demon - some totally lame, boring slasher.  After about 20 minutes, the lead actress took her top off and I was like "Please, put it back on".  That was enough.

Happy Birthday to Me - I heard this was a real classic.  I didn't care for the characters or the overall atmosphere.  It was really stupid, but not in a good, cheesy way - it was taking itself WAY too seriously, like it was a quality movie or something.  Just couldn't make it all the way to the end.

Rush Week - An '80s slasher with too many groan-inducing comedy elements to take.  Hey, if I wanted to watch Animal House, I would have bought Animal House. 

Hard Hunted - An Andy Sidaris film, it had plenty of bombs, boobs and bullets.  It was such a farce that I couldn't see much point in watching the end, just more bombs, boobs and bullets.  Sorry, but I don't believe that you can control the world's nuclear arsenals with a fake jade statuette from a souvenir shop.

You heard GOOD things about Michael Bay films?  Really? I mean, like, you know, from somewhere other than, like, the food court at the mall?  Not a shot at you, but at the bubbleheads that would like his...why am I even talking about Michael Bay?


Agreed with this guy.  I've heard nothing but NEGATIVE reviews of Michael Bay movies.  And, wasnt he a producer behind the remakes of Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre?  That kinda explains them, I feel.

Did you get to the scene where the are three cheerleaders in the tub licking sauce off each other ?
It was the only thing that didn't make the film a total waste of time.

I'm the same way. I simply REFUSE to not finish a movie once I've started it.

Never has a movie been so quickly taken off and then put back on my "to watch list" as this one has due to this thread.

You have to watch a lot of boring duff to get to that point !
The police have nothing to do with the film,  you can fast forward all the police bits as they don't serve the narrative at all.
