In this case you're watching it for the overly muscled guys
I am?

Lol. Touche.
Fine. But I like to laugh at how much cocoa butter they slathered onto their arms before each scene. It amuses me.

This thread is for films that you started to watch but gave up on, usually within the first 30 minutes, and usually because they are so awful.

Thanks, I understand that. Allow me to rephrase my question. Do the watchers/abandoners of said movies never see a preview/commercial, the lead actors/actresses, or read about the movie prior to watching? How many movies do you watch per week or year? I can only remember doing it once recently (forgot the movie name thankfully).

Give em hell Wolverine.  I'm of the same mindset.  I typically don't go out of my way to watch a movie if I think I'm not going to like it.  Save me the waste of time.  If it's on TV and I "abandon" it, I chalk it up to channel surfing.

That's why you won't see me in this thread.  Except to berate it ;)

5 minutes = channel surfing
20 minutes = abandonment

I'll give almost any film a chance. I know the obvious ones to avoid. I used to watch films for a living.

I reckon it would be akin to giving up on an album after three or four songs.
