Whether it was literally leaving the theater or refusing to finish a home copy solely because it was so bad.
Jeff and Dan have been using this new app/website called Letterbox, trying to do the library thing that people are always making for your game collections (before going out of business) but without the bloat that something like IMDB would come with.
Thing is, it doesn’t yet have a hall of fame or shame for the things you’d call your all time favorites or hates. It doesn’t go below half a star. I’ve seen plenty of half star movies in my day, from Mario Bros. to Attack of the Clones to Shutter Island, but special notoriety must be laid upon those so simply dull that I couldn’t even bother.
* denotes actual movie theater.
Sky Captain World of Tomorrow
The Royal Tennenbaums
*Bourne Supremacy (?)
The Italian Job 2003
The Usual Suspects
Honorable mention: Hail Caesar, I only gave it a chance because the Coens. Regret not walking out. And the Simpson’s movie, which I regret not buying a ticket, wearing a shirt that says 8 Seasons and a Movie with the movie crossed out, and walking out loudly during the studio logos.
Tennenbaums remains the only one I tried again later on to know the ending, in case tastes changed and since I later discovered things like Moonrise Kingdom which was so good. T.R.T. timelessly bad.
