It was a group of mightysparks. A curious specie who watch all kind of films without take the time to get information about a movie, then walk out saying that it was annoying. This specie of watcher learns nothing because you could have seen the same group going just to the next door to watch a Kiarostami's film. They should invent at least the moonwalk out to make it funnier.
You're not going to London any time soon, right?

Again, Lim assumes to know what goes on in my head. I pay attention to every film and try to get as much out of each as possible. What I don't do is read someone else's interpretation and opinion of a film and take it as my own.

Jesus, at Lim's age any kind of trip is likely to kill him. Keep safe and watch out for trains!

At least no-one assumes to know what goes on in Lim's head. :P

I don't get the -so boring I fell asleep- thing either and find it hard to take seriously. Obviously I've already ranted about using boring as a criticism so let's not get into that again. However on the whole sleeping thing; boredom to me is a feeling of intense frustration, which makes it impossible to sleep. I'm often tired and frequently start watching films very late at night, it makes me sleep better than staring at a ceiling and getting caught up in my own head. Just getting totally comfy and watching something good and engaging will put me to sleep. Actually being bored would put me right back into my head instead of engrossed in the film. I'll then watch on the next day from where I can still remember watching it and I won't be bored nor fall asleep when I feel more rested.
My dad falls asleep during films regardless the time of day, it's impossible to watch anything with him. Gave up on that a long time ago.

I stayed for all of MurderDotCom so ain't no stinkin,' movie gonna make me leave early.

Granted, I say this with having never seen a Friedberg/Seltzer movie in a theater, that shit may break me if I did.

Yeah I think we would have stayed for all of Nine but we had free tickets as compensation after a delay in another film starting from the last trip to the cinema.

I was forced to walk out of a few movies in the pre-home video days by scared/restless kids (or parents).

The only movie I ever wanted to walk out of (but didn't) was Pierrot le Fou when it first came out. Have seen it again since and enjoyed it thoroughly.

walked out of Year of the Horse. But it was a movie that was shown after a seminar, for free, and we didn't know what it was beforehand.
I'm no fan of Neil Young either
