There have been two movies I actually walked out of, "Move" (1970), and the very popular "Batman Begins" (2005). I fell asleep for most of "Contact" (1997) although I've seen pieces of it on TV and have found it interesting in my old age. Generally, I'm not a big fan of science fiction or shoot-'em-up movies. I've become much less tolerant of violence in movies as well. That sure narrows down the pool of movies I may like!
I watched the beginning of one movie, and then had to close my eyes for big portions of it, and that was "Saving Private Ryan" (1998). The movie did heighten my appreciation of those serving in the military past and present. It was just too graphic for me.
Most movies are too long for me. Maybe my attention span has been damaged by television?
