The ONLY movie I have ever walked out on...was A Streetcar Named Desire.

I've never bothered to watch it since walking out on it...and really do not want to do so.

For the young me...it sucked like a black hole.

Many of the most popular movies are not on my like list. Some of the most panned films are on my like or love list.

@edgarblythe,
I could never see why Vertigo featured in so many top film lists.

I thought it was way too long, plodding and boring.

That's exactly what I thought of Waterworld.

@izzythepush,
I saw Vertigo in a theater and was captivated. A few years later when it appeared on TV it was as you say, boring. I turned it off. So I don't know whether to believe it's good or not.

I do like Hitchcock normally, but this one didn't do it.

I used to believe Hitchcock was greater than he actually was. I only like a little of his stuff anymore.

@edgarblythe,
When I was a kid my parents went on and on about The Trouble With Harry. They said it was so good they sat through it twice, but the critics panned it so he never did anymore comedies.

When I saw it I was in agreement with the critics. It wasn't a bad film, but it wasn't the laugh a minute comedy fest my parents made it out to be.

@izzythepush,
That reminds me of the time some friends took me to see Some Like it Hot with Jack Lemon and Marilyn Monroe. They laughed all the way through it and I was just glad when it was over.

@edgarblythe,
I'm reading a book by Paul Auster at the moment.

One film that gets a lot of mention is The Best Days Of Our Lives.

At one point the actor Steve Cochrane is mentioned. He was in the film but what I didn't know was his death.

In 1965 he too three young women on a yacht with him, the youngest was fourteen, the oldest twenty-one. Supposedly he was looking for places to set up a new theatre group.

He died of a lung condition, the women knew nothing about sailing so the yacht drifted for ten days with a decomposing body on board before finding land.

Best Days Of Our Lives indeed.

(Auster made that joke, I'm just repeating it.)

Any Tarantino movie. They're well done, but the negative images stick with you forever like a bad tasting medicine you took as a kid. You wish you'd never seen the movie, but it's too late.

@coluber2001,
I used to think that Tarantino was an incredibly talented artist. I think maybe my age and some combination of Covid and isolation and creeping social malaise has really changed what I can tolerate. I enjoy the first 20-30 minutes of Django now, but I cannot watch the DiCaprio / Sam L parts. Pulp Fiction is the only other Tarantino I can watch.

For about a year during Covid, I had serious insomnia. The only thing that helped me sleep was turning on G-type comedians. I seem to need to avoid sad or cruel or violent images. A *distinct* departure from my former movie preferences.

I’m sleeping like a baby since I quit teaching. Sleeping is now my favorite hobby.
