Way back in the early 80s my buddy and I were going to walk out of Time Rider (Look it up...) but then the  movie just kind of ended.

^ A week or so ago I slept through Casablanca in my Intro to Film class. Most of the films we've seen so far are interesting to one degree or another, but I've never seen Casablanca and it just doesn't appeal.

I don't have to worry about it being on a test because everything in the course is take-home essays; if need be I could rent the DVD and watch it.

Casablana is a "How to write a screenplay" movie. I you like movies, you won't regret watching this.

I kind of had a similar thing with Citizen Kane, but instead of sleelping through it, a couple of guys in the class and I skipped it to go skiing. I don't regreat skiing, but I do regret not watching the movie. I never saw Citizen Kane until 10 years later when my friend got it for me as a gift. IMO, it's one if the finest films ever made and I was kicking myself for going so long having never seen it.

On Topic:

I've only ever walked out of movies where other people are talking or had brought babies.

I like most of  the Pixar movies and Shrek was decent, but I couldn't stand Roots I didn't laugh once and I didn't like the characters, so I left.

I thought it was good.  LeVar Burton did a great job, and I don't think it was necessarily intended to be funny.  The CGI animation was incredible though; they looked like real people and that was a huge accomplishment for the late 1970's.  :D

Sorry, just poking fun at the typo, SLC.  That being said, DreamWorks Animation films don't appeal to me at all.  The thing that makes Pixar's films so incredibly special isn't the animation but the plots of the films.  I don't think DWA has realized that just because something is computer animated, it doesn't mean it's good, box office receipts for "Madagascar" notwithstanding.

It's cool I walked right into that one. :-X ;)

I was real close to walking out of "Chicago."  That one made me crazy.

Yeah, I know I should watch it one of these days. That day was just not a good time. ;)

Indeed. We saw Citizen Kane in the same course. I was curious to see it since it's so famous, but frankly I wasn't expecting a lot out of it. I was pleasantly surprised however.

On one of the first dates my wife and I went on, we elected to see "The Pest" with John Leguizamo (sp?).  20 minutes later, we were on our way home.  I still can't fathom why we thought we might want to see that one.

I almost walked out of the remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The movie made me a little queasy.

But then Leatherface started chopping some handsome people up, and that made me feel better, oddly enough.

Exit to Eden.

I can endure bad movies. Sometimes I cherish them. I couldn't take Exit to Eden.

Frequency.

My wife and I walked because it was so far removed from the trailer used to promote the film. The movie was fair in my book - not great, almost poor - but she was disgusted by the plot and felt misled. So we fled.

Bummer. A lot of people I know, twenty - thrity something males, hold that movie very dear to their hearts. But, I can see why some people wouldn't like it.

I think the only movie I have ever walked out of is Robots (That animated flick a few years back.) We were waiting for it to get funny and it never did, after about half an hour or an hour we got up and left.
