Movies you couldn't even finish.

I don't think I'm going to make it through The Ladykillers from the 50's. I've hit somewhat of a burnout here during the last week. I just don't feel like watching anything right now.



I definitely recommend you come back to it. The baby abuse stops early on in the film and concentrates on a greedy black widow, played by Joan Cusack, trying to go after Fester for his money and when Pugsley and Wednesday are on to her, she has them shipped off to summer camp. I thought this movie is just as funny as the first one.
Sure, might even do so today. I did have a feeling at the time that Iíd just picked the wrong day for it.

I also remember the TV show was pretty great, though funnily enough, once I came across it as an adult, I was shocked it dated back to the Ď60s. Didnít seem old when I was watching it.



Too bad about the 2019 version. I saw the 1955 film in the theater, which was wonderful. For some reason I went by myself, but I completely fell in love with it.

I've been meaning to re-watch it ever since, but I don't believe I have...
i know it so different to 1955 . u should rewatch it, its one of my fav disney classic movies

The New World -

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - I can't stand stoner/drugs movies to begin with and this did nothing to convert me. I think I saw just enough of it to know that it wasn't going to magically redeem itself. God, what a puddle of wafting donkey piss.

Mucho late to this comment but I'm new, so please bare with me. Having experienced many of the pharmaceuticals of the day, in my past. This film is just a one trick pony that just doesn't realize the joke evaporated after the first third. At least the similar, yet older "Where are Buffalo Roam" kept me entertained until the end. Crap, my water pipe blew its seal...





This movie got great reviews, but I guess it wasnít my cuppa tea.



Trying to be The Big Chill & not even remotely succeeding.



15 minutes. Awful. I couldn't finish that.



Halloween.


I made it about 45 minutes into the film and all that's happened is Michael Myers has followed Jamie Lee Curtis around while she's living out her dull life as a 70s teen in suburbia. Yawn.


I thought this was meant to be a horror film but I found nothing scary about it, just endless shots of Myers stalking her with bizarre Darth Vader-esque breathing problems. Maybe it's meant to build suspense but I just found it boring. Very disappointing for a film with such a big reputation.



I need to start turning off stuff that I cant get into more. If you've devoted at least an hour to something and you're still waiting for something to pull you in, its not gonna is it? (Unless its something episodic maybe, like Certain Women or Buster Scruggs etc.)

Ive done it twice in the last few months. I did it with 2001 not so long ago, and did it last night with Silence.

I've found that if a movie isn't working for me in the first 15 minutes, it rarely gets better for me. Personally I enjoyed both Certain Women & Buster Scruggs, and knew I would at the very start of the films.

It sounds reasonable. But then, Iíve had films I thought I really didnít like as I was watching them - Dark Waters, for example - but once I was done, I realised were actually quite good. Even watched DW twice after that, which I donít often do. It does grow on you sometimes, I guess.

(But that may just be my masochistic tendency to finish things).



I was bored to tears watching Gone WIth The Wind and didn't end up watching the last 30 minutes.

Also, that shot for shot remake of Psycho. Me and my mom both agreed to immediately watch the original again after like 20 minutes.

I just used those as examples, as in both, there was one of the stories I couldnt get on board with, but overall I enjoyed them.
