50DMC Day 11 – A movie you walked out on in theatres

07 Jun

More info on The 50 Day Movie Challenge here and here.

This one doesn’t really apply to me as I’ve never walked out from a movie in my life. Ticket prices are nasty enough for me to not sit a movie through to the end when I’ve paid for it. Besides, you never know. Maybe the film picks up later on.

But while I may not have left a theater, there are a few movies that have managed to put me to sleep, which seems a close enough substitute. Chief among these would be Driven, a largely forgotten 2001 racecar movie starring Sylvester Stallone, Kip Pardue and Burt Reynolds. Such a dull film, but a great incentive to go on vacation to dreamland. Then all of a sudden a high-speed car ride through a big city woke me up, before I realized that the film was still really boring, so back to sleep I went. Me and the friend I went with were both terribly disappointed, and we actually made a vow to one day go see a good Sly film in theater to make up for this travesty. It took nine years until The Expendables made this happen.
