There was a thread for this before. Talk about movies you did not finish, either from boredom, not understanding, being tired, too disturbing, walk-outs, etc.

Add Marketa Lazarova for the new one on my list. I thought I could watch this movie on a whim and it backfired when it brought the ruckus on my ass. TOUGH film to watch, I'm gonna need to have a better/more attentive mindset to watch it in the future. I can digest Tarkovsky and even Parajanov well, but this was a task. I would have finished it, but I figure that would do me no good and be a time-waster. A bad viewing is worse than no viewing to me.

What say you?

Aoyama's Eureka. Just felt like something by somebody who thinks he's automatically a great arthouse master just because he's shooting in long shots and takes.

Kingdom of Heaven. I did however finish the directors cut version about 4 years later.

Ha, I was just about to say 'Kingdom of Heaven'. I was bored out of my friggin' mind. I gave up after the second hour.

Honestly, I can't think of any other films I straight-up said "fuck this" to. I mean, I pretty much always finish even really bad movies.

I fell asleep watching it the first time. The directors cut is substantially better.

i can't really think of any that are embarrassing. i haven't finished the expendables (first 30 minutes sucked), the good shepherd (watched with a girlfriend, got distracted, didn't care enough about the movie to watch it again), and i guess miller's crossing. but i only watched like 10 minutes of miller's crossing and just wasn't in the mood for coens.

"Scream". It was the first time in my life I was utterly drunk so I walked out sometime in the middle to go and play table tennis in the dark.

Also two films by Michael "Bully" Herbig ("Lissi und der wilde Kaiser" and "Wickie und die starken Männer") because they were too unfunny to take.
