The closest I ever came to walking out of a movie was JURASSIC PARK III. I stayed because I kept saying to myself it's got to get better, but it never did.mad

In the 90s I saw tons of films at the movies, but I never walked out of any.

No, but I've come close with two or three. One was "Star Trek: Nemesis".

Thankfully I have refined my movie-going experience to the point now where I can weed out bad films in advance and not pay to see them. As a result, I've yet to see a bad movie since "Star Trek: Nemesis".

Now, I've seen one with terrible scores, mind you, like "Gravity", or the not even serviceable bland interchangeable noise of "Lone Survivor".

Only once back in the eighties. Ninja III The Domination.

I don't know what I was thinking going to see it in the first place.

I think I walked out of HANNAH AND HER SISTERS. The hand-held camerawork made me seasick.

Almost walked out of The Highlander sequel^.

And I saw a couple walk out of Schindler's List. Not sure exactly what they were expecting

Not of my own accord. My mom left The Americanization of Emily with me in tow when I was 10 or 11. She and my sisters went back the next day...without me.

If our dollar theater had still been open, I surely would have walked out on Batman v Superman. As it is, I just turned it off.

The only thing that will make me walk out of a movie is either an unbearable audience, or a colossal technical foul-up. Otherwise, I always gut it out to the end.

Never walked out of a movie. I feel I've paid good bucks for the viewing so I'm gonna stick it out till the end. Though two I strongly contemplated walking out on were Dune and Rock A Doodle.

JPIII is my second favorite JP film. big grin

I've fallen asleep a few times during movies, but the only time I've walked out was during BOXING HELENA. Not due to any moral indignation which some people had with it, but simply because it was complete garbage.

I don't like wasting money, so no, but I came close on the total shit sandwich that was YEAR ONE.

Very, very rarely. I think it might have happened just once or twice over the years (and I'm not even sure it was because of the film's quality, but rather some other pressing matters).

The most recent example I can think of was the Russian film THE STUDENT in 2016. It was in Cannes, and there was another film going at the same time that I really wanted to see. So after some 20 minutes, I left for the other movie instead. As I found THE STUDENT rather irritating and not my cup of tea at all, I didn't want to prioritize it over the other one.

Wasting some money, in my opinion, is a small price to pay over wasting life; you can always get more money, you cannot, however, get more life.

I've thought of walking out of many, but I actually only walked out of one. I think it was called Transylvania 6-5000 or something like that. It had Jeff Goldblum in it. It was just monotonous, unfunny and terrible... frown

I started to walk out of PULP FICTION, but then a scene struck me as being kind of funny, so I sat back down and started to enjoy this quirky movie. Glad I stayed.

On the other hand, I hated THE DOORS and finally left about half way through the movie.

I took my kids to the Pokemon movie and proceeded to fall asleep.

Those 90 or so minutes lost could've been the best times of your life.
