My Walk Outs

So I just read my friend Brad's (The Wretched Genius) post in relation to that cinematic-going staple The Walk Out. As in, movies you saw at the theater and were so infinitely terrible you had no choice but to get up and literally walk out on them. You should read this post immediately for his breakdown and definition of what The Walk Out is and how one reaches that point as he summarizes it to perfection. Anything I say would be 1.) Redundant and 2.) Not as good.

But I have to get in on the listing. I just have to. As Brad would attest, I think, it's a matter of pride to tell people the movies that prompted your own personal Walk Out. Without further adieu, the four films I have Walked Out on:

-The Postman.
-Varsity Blues.
-Van Helsing. (This film also made me fall asleep in the theater for about, I think, 20 minutes.)
-Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End.

Indeed, it is a matter of pride. And it's a helpful tool to let others know exactly where you draw the line.

I have to admit that I stayed for the entirely of Varsity Blues. But it was entirely out of curiosity. I just had to know if Amy Smart would take off her top again, and was also anxiously awaiting the moment when Jon Voight would just pull out a gun and shoot one of his own players.
