For years 2001 was my favorate film (and still is my fav sci-fi movie). I've seen it
over forty-five times! Thrice on the big screen as it should be seen.
The only movie I've ever walked out I can't remember the name of but it was a Bill Murray movie, his first dramatic role I believe, back in the eighties. I don't leave movies once I'm there, even the ones I'm not enjoying, for several reasons. The least of which not being the fact I'm an idiotic optimist and tend to give the filmakers the benefit of the doubt that there will be at least a scintilla of redeeming value to their
work. I've sat through a lot worse movies than that one but the GF was antsy and wanted to see SNL and I did as well. I forget who was the host or musical guest that night but I figured 'what the hell, I'll try anything once!'. Almost.
