You Don't Have to Watch a Bad Movie to the Bitter End

Mick LaSalle

How do we make the most of our time? We stop doing some things. I've written before that it's fine to stop reading a book you don't like. But you might also consider this advice from Mick LaSalle: "If a movie is bad, turn it off after 30 minutes or less."

Mick wrote that back in April, and he just elaborated on it this past weekend. For those who have trouble walking away after 30-40 minutes of a bad movie, he writes: "If it helps, get angry. Realize the movie is trying to steal your inner life, weaken your mind and take from a finite reserve of precious time."
