I suspect there will be a thread for "Musicals for people who don't like musicals," which will be either empty or overly representative of the final countdown.

I Saw the TV Glow - I felt it was pretty good, despite not really growing that much more than what you see sketched out in the trailer. And yet, I'd prefer not to go into...

‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

Re: ‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

Ideál (1964) is 14 minutes.
Idéal (2022) is 2 minutes.
Idéal (2023) is 12 minutes.

The people in that poll were way off in their guesses. Not sure which one they were asking about.

Fwiw, I did see this in the theater, but it was a small crowd (discount night showing), and it's always hard to guess how a hypothetical communal response affects the viewing, but I'm pretty sure no...
