So there. 3 posts to add to my leaderboard total. er.... 4.
Gah. I can't stop bugging about this. Or I'm procrastinating work. Either way, it's keeping me here.

OK. So thinking more on this maybe I misread the meaning. I do, often, watch movies that are good and find myself enjoying it right up until a character does some irrational out of character, writer-driven action to move the plot forward. THAT crap pulls me right out. It's never really acting though. Just, once I realize the fictional world I'm watching is altered by some outside presence (writer/director) that normal would never happen in that world based on whatever rules are laid out so far, I can't get back into any of it.
Well. There was that pretty bad flick called Wing Commander I might have walked out of. I'm not sure if I did or not though.
Yeah. I can't think of any movies I've watched without having a partial understanding that it's going to be B. Of course, it may help lower my expectations by approaching movies I've not heard of and just assuming a B standard. That way I'm pleasantly surprised? I don't know. I don't really think about it.

Usually I'm either on board for the whole thing, realise it's bad from the start, or realise it's bad after watching the whole thing and thinking it's good, but as for realising it partway through a movie...hmm. The only one I can really think of that comes anywhere close is Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Yes, on a regular basis 😟 But I still try to give Netflix a chance, so its my fault entirely...
