Films you've tried watching to the end but just can't

47 Replies 936 Views Created 05-09-2007
A few come to mind:


  • A Scanner Darkly - Rented it, attempted to watch is 3 times, i'll admit that the plot went right over my head but added the combined plot and cellshadded visuals i just ended up with a headache at every attempt to get through it and just ended up switching off.
  • Serenity - Can never keep my attention i just get bored and wander off distracted by somthing shiny.
  • Gangs of New York - *shurgs*
  • The Departed - Must be Leo Dicaprio or somthing. Maybe its Matt Damon trying to play the hard man?
  • Napoleon Dynamite - I just don't get it.
  • Miami Vice - Its pure unadulterated crap.
  • Usual Suspects - Boring
  • Godfather - Get your pitchforks... i just don't like it.


Thats just a few off the top of my head.

I quite liked A Scanner Darkly. yes, the plot wasn't the easiest to follow but it was a good film to just watch.

Napoleon Dynamite - there's nothing to get xD it's just a bloody hilarious film. so easily quotable.

The Lord Of The Rings - I just couldn't get into any of them, they were too long, and quite frankly, too complicated and boring.

well yes, er, so you should be. but you know what would make me proud again, son? i think you know what.

actually i never finished watching Once Upon A Time In America, Alien 3, Amistad and this really cheap crappy thing called The Hamiltons? it made me slighty depressed.

Once Upon A Time In America for me as well, I've tried watching it twice and failed. It's just so outrageously long, something like 4 and a half hours, it's rediculous. It's not interesting enough to watch for that long.

I agree with Napoleon Dynamite actually... I'd heard it was great, so I watched it, and just didn't find it that funny at all... =/ I watch most films to the end, although I switched off completely during Godfather, I just thought it was boring tbqh... Cabin Fever would be the most recent one... It was jus crap . =/

When i went to see Scanner Darkly in the cinemas, I walked out and my brain hurt so much.

Although it had some amazing bits. Winona Ryder telling Keanu she does a lot of coke

The Lord of The Rings was pants, well what I saw of it before stopping the DVD. I'd rather watch the kettle boil.

The Godfather - Think I might have fallen aslepp while watching that.
Napolean Dynamite - I laughed once the whole time i watched it, no idea why so many people love it

Can't think of any more, although i'm sure there are some.

Agree with The Godfather, got the box set, made it through the first, then the second i failed, haven't touched the third. I struggled a bit through Casino as well, heard it was like Goodfellas, maybe it was just the disapointment it wasn't anywhere near as good. Scary Movie, i just turned that off. I'll usually sit through a film though, in hope it improves. I wish i could of walked out the cinema during Ocean's Twelve though, but it wasn't really an option. The Departed and Napoleon Dynamite are rather awesome though.

Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas. The books awesome. But i always loose interest when watching the film. I must've watched it 3 or 4 times, and still haven't got to the end i don't think.

I might have actually seen it all the way through and just not rememberd it due to being high on goofballs or something.
