Nope! If the movie is that long, i need to go to the washroom in between and I do get thirsty and hungry so I pause it and go out to bring something to eat :D

I remember watching Rose Red by Stephen King and the movie is about 4 long hours and I was infront of the laptop without moving a little, well I suppose it also depends on the subject of the movie to be able to sit for long hours without moving.;-)

Um probally not since I usally have to go to the bathroom and take a piss lol and i know I would get hungry so I would need to get some snacks. So I dont think I could sit for four hours straight without getting up since im pretty sure something would cause me to. But I can watch movies for more then four hours lol.

This is what I was telling to another responder, I will wait till the movie will end it it is a maximum of 4 hours and then after that I will go to the bathroom, to the kitchen or to raom outside to feel the outer world a bit ;-)

i do a marathon every three months, i have the Star Wars Full Hexa-logy and i make a habit of sitting down and watching three parts, then a 30 min rest, then 3 parts, so that is almost 7 hours each time, can you do it ?

To be honest with you then I won't be able to do it, I will accept spending such long hours for something I am interested in doing so like watching movies which I love to. So for each one over here we have different likings so its not important for someone to like something which you like.

It depends on the movie. I don't think I've come across a 4 hour movie yet. I've sat through all of Titantic, Schindler's List, Lord of the Rings, Tommyknockers, Shawshank Redemption, etc. without having to get up. Oh, just thought of 4 hour movies, Gone with the Wind, The Ten Commandments and I've watched them straight through.

Yes I find it cool also to be watching a movie for so long for a movie which infact you love so much.;-)

Sure, no problem, as long as I am at home. I lie on the couch. Once I am parked, it can be longer than 4 hours....

I can. And I did. I watched the full three Lord of the Rings in one seating. I started in the morning and ended late at night. Of course I had to get up for lunch as my stomach really growled at me. But didn't eat my dinner after I finished the return of the king.
@med889 (5958)

Yeah that's cool indeed, I think the moment you feel good about something whether it is a book or a movie then we just want to finish it once and go back to do the stuffs we were left out to do.

Hello med889, That's what my husband and I do every weekend. Normally we watch two or three movies continuously. I even did this once - me, my sister and my nephews went to watch movies at the cinema continuously without a break. We bought three tickets for three movies and were in and out of the different theater halls for half a day!
@med889 (5958)

I have never tried this before and now reading your post I feel I should be trying it atleast once in my life, I have always watched long hours movies on DVD on my laptop bt never try this in cinema, thanks I will try it now.

IF the movie was good enough, I could watch it for 4 hours and not get up. I probably wouldn't realize that so much time had gone by.
@med889 (5958)

I would put the maximum time to watch a movie for 4 continuous hours too as if the movie is really worth looking at then I will not mind to spend the 4 hours sitting and watching without moving ;-)

I can too. Much more if the movie where my favorite actors and actresses stared. In sitting position I can just move a little so that my body will not feel ache and I must have something to eat and drink while watching for us not to stand to get one while watching.

I will also take all the necessary stuffs when I will sit for a movie which I know will end after 4 hours, I take my food, the drinks and others necessary things.

Most of the hindi movies here in India are very long duration movies which also may be for about four hours.It depends that I get up or not.Taking fast food during film viewing is a very common practice of mine,so I have to get up a couple of times.Also,have to take a break to go to the toilet.Seeing a four hour long movie at a stretch is a tedious matter. By the way,have you seen any movie that is 4 hours long? And if not,how did this idea come to your mind?
@med889 (5958)

I have seen movies for 4 hours, for example, Rose Red a movie by stephen King which was near to 4 hours then I have also seen movies from India which lasted for very long like Devdas, and other movies by the protagonist. I love watching Hindi movies and now that I understand the language a bit, its a pleasure watching them. The last one is Slumdog Millionaire and I love the song "Jai Ho" Which is also in english now;-)

@med889 (5958)

No your eyes will not pop because it is a movie you like to watch and if you are not used to watch such long movies then I think you might just be trying one.

hahahah.no i cant.im bored when i see 1 movie until finish.i need take a rest.so that i can watch the next movie.i like watching movie but i dont like if it too much.but if i really like the story and really curious about the next story i will watch it until all af session finish.lol
@med889 (5958)

I might also take a pause before the next movie but as I said to someone else I have tried to watch 3 movies without getting up. They were all my favorite movies.
30 Apr 09
It all depends on the movie in question. I can easily watch "Once Upon A Time in America" which comes in just short of 4 hours at 3 hours 49 minutes without getting up. But that is because it has so much going on and a story line which keeps dragging you in deeper and deeper so that you lose the sense of time. I get the same whenever I watch the godfather trilogy. But then I can watch the whole of the first Lord of the rings movie without several breaks as it doesn't really do it for me and that one is just over 3 hours long. On a slightly different note I have watched 6 movies back to back with only toilet/ food breaks in between each one. Sad I know, lol.

Hello med889, I am not sure if I would be able to sit in a theater for four continous hous without getting up. I have watched a movie for over three hours but I was getting tired of sitting still. I can watch a movie at home for that long because I can put the film on pause.
@med889 (5958)
18 May 09
I have never been to the cinema to watch such a long movie but at home I did and I do it still, I found it more practical to be able to lie down or sit as you want on the bed to watch the movie.

Yes, I can.. actually, i have done that before.. i didn't get up just to watch three movies continuously.. and there's one TV series that made me glued on my bed for five straight hours and that was Prison Break.. Prison Break is one of my favorite TV series'.. i am looking forward to seeing the next season..
@med889 (5958)
18 May 09
I also love Prison break and it is always one of my favorite TV shows, I am just waiting for the other episodes, I hope this time I will never ever miss one episode as last time.

When I have an off day from work and like when I just stay home and take my rest and all lazy, I could sit and watch movies or tv shows online for hours.. Well, if like 4 hours straight of watching without getting up, I'm not sure if I tried doing that, like peeing or getting food.. That'd be a little difficult, well, maybe unless the show or movie is really, really good.. Well I have seated for hours with the Titanic movie, plus all the trailer and stuff, total would be roughly 4 hours or maybe or so..
@med889 (5958)
18 May 09
That's cool to know, well I think everyone might be sitting for many hours if ever the movie they are watching is one of their favorite or one which they would have probably watched it only once.

I usually watch movie on my holidays and only stop when it's time to eat (bath time is on holiday too,lol ) it's usually 5-6 hours straight, only stop for more coke.

Great indeed, its been more than one month since I have sit for so long to watch a movie for more than 4 hours, I got three movies at home right now maybe after this week I will be able to watched them without moving with my drinks and foods next to me.

Depends on the movie. If the movie is really good I could even watch for 24 hours lol, but provided that I get food and other requirements!
@med889 (5958)
18 May 09
You mean you can watch a movie well of course one of you favorite for 24 hours continuouly? You are a master then as most of us here we can do it or maximum 5 hours and without moving a bit.
