      Try watching a 90min movie with a phone addict. They get bored and pull out their phone during the movie. I called my cousin out on it once and he told me he was "still watching"

    Yes.

    I refuse to watch anything over 2 hours long.

    Have watched a few clips of Oppenheimer, and that's all it gets from me.

      Oppenheimer was fricking terrible because there was no real story to tell and they focused on his love life.

      Movies should not be long if they have no story. A good plot makes or breaks a movie and modern movies have no plot.

              wtf are you talking about you dumb troony everyone wasn’t always drunk and eating edibles and vaping and on Prozac and antipsychotics and shooting nips all day.
              In fact, in my state nip litter and drunk driving is so prevalent there’s some gay vote going on to ban the sale of nips.

    just how can I focus?

    I try to watch a movie but I feel this inner unrest and urgency to do something else even if I have nothing specific in mind. I end up going to Cinemaphile even though there is no specific topic I want to discuss and I dont have much faith in someone making an interesting thread.

    it takes me like 4 hours to watch a 2 hour movie

    Ive been prescribed adhd meds to no effect

      When the urge comes, you need to take control and focus on what you're doing.

      Its worth changing which ones you're on as they do work differently for different people.

      I'm on 36mg concerta xl and the adjustment period was rough, i felt like i'd just done a line of coke for like 10 hours a day.

      Having said that I have never had difficulty just watching a good movie.

    Yes. Modern movies are too long. They do not tell an engaging or complex enough story to warrant the run time.

    so it's pretty clear that TikTok is being used by the Chinese as a weapon against the West. Is the intention to spread propaganda, sow divisiveness, lower IQ and attention span, or spread disinformation? Or is it just a combination of all of these things?

    If I see 1h40 to 1h55 then I know it’s either well cut and edited kino with no filler or fat, or so shitty that it’s not much of a time investment to watch the first 30 and see the direction it’s going

    You know what? Yes. Yes they fricking should. Hollywood seems to have forgotten the 90-105 minute sweet spot and expects us to be in a movie theater for two and a half fricking hours for every piece of shit they pump out.

    It's not about length, it's about pacing. And to a lesser extent character development. This generation can binge watch a show for 12 hours straight because it's hard to frick up the pacing in a 20-40 minute episode. Even the 90 minute films released now feel longer than they need to be. Your tiktok brain friends are checking out of films early because they're not offering anything engaging to entice them to keep watching. For a more nuanced film this is generally redeemable but with most films theres no reason to really keep watching beyond the first 20 minutes.
