When you are going to see what matters the most? How long should movies be? Are they getting to long and drawn out? What is the longest movie you have watched?

The longest I've watched is 3 1/2 hours but that was not that the movie theater so I could stop it and take breaks. It wouldn't be bad if at the theaters they had intermissions. That is what they used to do with movies. If you watch some of the older ones they actually still have the "intermission" in there. They knew people needed to get up and move around. If they are going to go over 2 hours they should have a break. I'd like it even with a 2 hour movie but when you get over 2 hours it's just too long to sit for all at once.

I think I'm done right at the 2 hour mark. I hear in Europe 2 and 3 hour movies are the norm. I think the longest movie I have ever seen was Gone with the Wind. I don't count Lord of the Rings because those were the same story yes, but different movies.
