I feel like all of the movies we have seen lately have been a minimum of three hours long. And I'm not saying I haven't enjoyed Skyfall, Django Unchained, and whatever that other really long-feeling one was...and going back to summer, The Dark Knight Rises, in which I was mostly a panicky-hot mess.
I guess I am used to movies that can entertain me in under 3 hours, you know, like bad Katherine Heigl movies or even smart movies that just don't keep going. I try my best not to eat two large buckets of popcorn with Bryan at movies, but I'm not kidding when I say that I truly *gave up* 3/4 of the way through Skyfall and left for popcorn the minute they actually got to Skyfall.
I really want to see Zero Dark Thirty, but I cannot hack it for another 3 hours in a theater with minimal, watered-down Diet Coke left and a bunch of popcorn kernels.
