Thread Name: Worst Movie ever
Subject: RE: Worst Movie ever
RangerSteve, I think you probably suffer from the usual short attention span or mild case of ADD that is afflicting most of the western population these days, and that's why you can't handle a beautiful scene where, in your words, "nothing happens for about 10 minutes". ;-) You don't want to feel the mood that is set by that scene and just go with it for awhile and feel the sheer beauty of it...you don't want to meditate on anything...you just want something to happen, so you can react to it! Someone should SAY something! Something should blow up! Someone should crack a joke! Something should crash! Anything! Just, please God, don't make me SIT here for several minutes while nothing happens!!!! I see people like this at traffic lights all the time. They are frantic for the light to change, because they can't bear to sit still for 30 seconds and enjoy what's around them. They MUST make the next move in their mental game (which involves an anticipated destination)!

It's a modern disease of the mind as far as I'm concerned, and you've got it, buddy.
