Movie Times

I’m a big movie buff. I love going to the movies at a theatre. As a matter of fact, if I don’t see it in a theatre, it will probably be a while before I see it.  I was anxious to go see “The Wolf of Wall Street” over the holidays. Then I noticed it was three hours. Three hours. Three hours.

For goodness sake, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” clocks in at only 2:40. I can make that commitment for The Hobbit. Of course, I know “The Wolf” is a Scorcese film, but still.   I mean, “Casino” was 178 minutes as well, but that’s “Casino.” How many times have you actually watched the whole thing at once?

I’m just saying that when you get into the 2-hour range, it seems long to me. Saying that, I know a whole lot of good movies are 2 hours plus. Three hours? You’re asking for a commitment.

Here’s the current run of holiday movies and their times. Eight movies, and seven of them are either over or within breathing distance of 2 hours.
