Rarely, if ever, do I waste my time at a movie theater- one of the few times I've gone in many years, my significant other wanted me to go see "Identity Thief" with her on a rainy day while we were out of town. I TRIED walking out, but she insisted I stay- so I just tried going to sleep at that point.

Walked out of 300 and got a refund. Wasn't interested in watching what was a basically a video game for two hours.

Walked out - and - got a refund - for many a movie.

If the audience walked out on every shaky cam movie, WhollyWeird would get the message and stop making dreck.

The past 25 years I don't go the cinema very often I'm usually careful how I choose my selection.

I wanted to walk out of Love Actually but my wife and I were in London visiting friends and that would have been way to rude. Hated it!

I did walk out of The Decendents. There was not one likable character in that flick, Clooney was weak, the dying wife a cheater, the in-laws bitter & bit@%y and the kids! They were the worst, it was after some vulgar tween exchange that I simply had to walk out.

But Shailene Woodley sure did look scrumptious in a bikini. She alone was worth the price of admission.

I thought the hand held camera worked very in Cloverfield.

And what exactly did you think 300 would be?

No because it has to look really good for me to want to pay $ to watch it to begin with.
