Just thought I would jolt your brain with a little Monday morning ‘pick me up’ – by way of a Forum post I saw on Total Film magazine’s website.
The question asked is Have you ever walked out of a movie? It is a tried and true question to ask any cinema-goer and is sure to elicit a wonderful and varied response.
I will get the ball rolling with my response: I have actually not walked out of a film – ever. Although there was that coulda-shoulda-woulda moment with Armageddon. About 10-15 minutes in I just about gave up the will to live (okay that is a massive exaggeration). A combination of confusion over Bruce Willis’ accent, overuse of the sweeping shot and a general lack of interest in the characters left me with a desire to call time on this movie. But due in large part to the fact that I was responsible for a group of summer campers, I had to soldier on and sit through the film. I think I amused myself by dozing off a few times.
Enough about me, how about you? This should get the old gray matter going!
