It happens to everyone at least once, right?
In 98 I went and saw Catherine Deneuve in Genealogies of A Crime at theatre in Hollywood. It was after a long day at work, after a night of lack of sleep. So somewhere in I guess the first act I feel fell asleep and when I woke up Denueve had a different hair color and was going by a different name; I was lost and was not gonna be able to figure it out, so I got up and left and haven’t had a chance to see the film since.
So, who else has nodded off during a film, and what film?
Major League 3. I saw it because of Scott Bakula and it was so dull I could not stay awake.
Where the Wild Things Are
Not just one but two threads already! Search engine is your friend, Ulicain.
De Faux, Thanks.
You wanna talk search engine, talk to the people with 4 different Decalogue threads.
Also, people, do more than just give the name, what happened, why?
I can drink too much, so these were DVD’s at home.
But I had to start watching, both, “Usual Suspects” and “Pulp Fiction” on three seperate occaisions!!!!
I think I can be forgiven, “Pokemon-The movie” when I took my kids. I only caught Pikachu’s supporting feature.
Did I miss anything? :-)
As what was discussed before about repeating threads, the one De Faux mentioned was 7 pages, with last comment just under a month ago, the one Ari mentioned, 6 pages and last comments was 7 months. So it could be said that the former thread was picking up where the latter left off, and this one picks up where the former left off.
I’ve yet to make it past about the 18-minute point of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, and I’ve tried three times.
After three tries over many years, I have yet to see more than an hour of Metropolis. As an eternal optimist, however, I’ll take another shot at it when the new restoration comes out.
The only film that actually puts me to sleep is 2001, the Deneuve pic is because I was just really tired.
2001. Me, too. Yet I have never missed a moment of Barry Lyndon.
i guess i’m some kind of robot because i don’t seem to be tired by any of the “acclaimed” films mentioned as “films you fell asleep during”, even some i didn’t quite like such are North by Northwest or L’Argent, they’re still more tolerable than most studio budget films of today……
i usually fall asleep with films like The Fountain, Donnie Darko, Titanic, those stuff….
The Passion of Joan of Arc. I kept making up ridiculous narration in my head (something about oranges and cows at one point, I think) and convincing myself that’s what she was thinking. I was really tired.
Also, Se7en. Twice.
Dead Man, twice, midnight screenings, past my bedtime even back then.
The fountain: twice,haven’t finished it until now.
The first time I saw “The Age of Innocence” AND “The Fountain” but there now some of my favorite recent films.
Tailor of Panama. I was the only person in the theatre and I actually stretched out on 4 seats…and fell asleep. Horribly boring.
It’s always a bad sign when you fall asleep on a film by a filmmaker you admire. Jarmusch’s LIMITS OF CONTROL and Lynch’s INLAND EMPIRE both put me to sleep faster than vicodine.
Speed(1994) I was like 5 or so and I fell asleep during the coming attractions and woke up at the credits, I must’ve seriously been tired because I loved when my father took me to the movies.
And Transformers, I had taken a flight the night before and never went to sleep and my step brother and sister wanted to go so I did and was dipping out the whole movie lol I had already seen it though on opening night in a sold out theatre in Florida and while I thought it was fun and the effects were really good I wouldn’t consider myself a fan.
@ Garry Woodcock I loved the Pokemon Movie when I saw it in theatrs haha.
i was on a date with this incredible, hot chick, and we went to see shadow of the vampire, and i fell asleep. i felt like such an idiot.
then about two years later i was hanging out with another incredible, hot chick and we rented shadow of the vampire. i fell asleep. which was horrible because we were at my house in my bed and i’m pretty sure she wanted to… you know. fucked that up.
Well, I think we now knpw what your kryptonite is.
i fell asleep during most of repo men
what was that film all about :O(
Avita and In Love And War. My ex-girlfriend need so badly to see these craptastic movies.
2001 – twice
The spy who came in from cold – twice
SHUTTER ISLAND, as a matter of fact, which I’m rewatching right now with much greater interest.
Sure, I was tired, but I still can’t believe I didn’t once notice Leonardo’s tie the first time around.
