We have a new sub-topic...movies we walked out of! For me:

Dick Tracy is the only one I can think of. There's been a few I wish I would have. And there's some rentals I've turned off. But, do ya think I can remember the names? Heck no...

There was a movie in the theater, years ago, called "Time Master". It was so hokey! The only reason that we went to see it and stayed to watch the whole thing was because Michael Dorn was in it.

Of course there is a subtle difference there: a hokey film or a guilty pleasure film is one thing. But, a BAD film or an upsetting film is another thing!
Films have a great potential for affecting people. That can be used for a positive purpose such as enlightening people or for encouraging positive feelings & behavior. But they can be manipulative as well. They can also negatively influence the public. Naturally, that is all in the eye of the beholder. I am sure that one man's noble film is another man's propaganda.
So it goes...

ok, the 4th Indiana Jones movie had us leaving the theater wondering why we stayed, why we even paid money for it.

That wasn't too bad of a movie. I enjoy the entire series.

I dont think I ever "walked" out of a movie, in part because I dont go to a movie unless I KNOW its gonna be good. Well.....except maybe those movie booths in Bremerhaven...and the one in Mystic.

We enjoyed the first 3 "Indiana Jones" movies (I LOVED Sean Connery in that third one), so we were excited to see the 4th one and just found it to be disappointing.

I agree that it quite sucked with the whole glass alien skull. Desperate for a story line, so lame.
Rocky V sucked worse than Rocky IV, but I have to say that I found Rocky VI to be shimmering with hopeful sadness. It was actually moving and quite real. Probably as real as the first film was...
