The 50 Day Movie Challenge asks one question every day, to be answered by a few paragraphs and a clip, if possible. Click here for the full list of questions.
Today’s prompt: What’s a movie you walked out of in theatres?
As far as I can remember, there’s only one film I’ve walked out of in a theatre because I didn’t want to watch the rest of it. That was White Fang when I was about ten. We didn’t go out to a lot of movies when I was little, and most of my home viewing had been classics, so even though this was Disney, it was apparently too much for me to take. I remember being scared when the coffin they were transporting fell down the mountain and the corpse fell out of it, and between that and the extra-loud sound that had my mom none-too-happy, we were done and left. I’ve never watched the whole thing, but I’m pretty sure that part is in, like, the first ten minutes.
Since then, I’ve pretty much stuck it out for everything; the only things I’ve left early were festival screenings where I had to rush to the next thing, and the second half of a rep cinema double feature, where I was rushing to get to a screening at a different rep cinema few miles away. That one was The Virgin Spring, which I HATED leaving, but still haven’t managed to see the rest of yet. I will, though. White Fang…not so sure.
Looking up clips on YouTube, the whole movie’s uploaded, and the part that scared me is right at the end of the second clip, so it’s within the first twenty minutes. I was close. :)
