Random Factoid #267

21 04 2010

This factoid is brought to you by Ross v Ross’ post “Which Movies Have You Not Been Able to Finish?”

If you hadn’t guessed by now, I will be revealing the movie(s) that I just couldn’t see through to the bitter end.  No matter how bad the movie, I virtually always finish it.  On just my fourth day of blogging I established that I had only walked out of two movies, “The Return” and “Bruno.”  I did not care to ever finish the former, but I actually rented the latter (from the library – so it was free!) and finished it out of curiosity.

But as for other movies, I only remember stopping a movie and never restarting it because I didn’t like it once.  That honor is reserved for “Ghost Rider,” starring Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes.  I’ve seen worse movies, and I’m not quite sure what motivated me to stop.  I think it could be some sort of an objection to having an incarnation of the Devil be the protagonist.

Any movies that you just couldn’t see through to the end?

Ghost Rider could use a remake. Absolutely horrendous movie…

Gone with the Wind. I lasted about 20 minutes.

I WISH I had used enough logic to turn Ghostrider off, but I felt if I were to blast it across the web and warn people of it’s tragedy, I’d fairly have to conclude it.

A sequel is in the works. Insanity.

“Zach and Miri Make a Porno.” Of course I was forced into watching it with a friend. O, and “Push.” That movie was painful as well.
