The first ten minutes

It’s good to know that the first ten minutes of Juno will be trying. I don’t go to the movies that often, and the Spectrum usually has as many as four or five films of potential interest. When I go, I take note of the starting times, which tend to be staggered by ten minutes. If the film I’ve paid for doesn’t grab me within ten minutes, I switch theaters. (Micaela does this too, though less often.)

I’ve switched theaters to avoid treatments of mid-life crises, self-pitying protagonists, scenes of senseless brutality, inadequate projection-bulb brightness, and films that are not films but digital video. I’ve probably missed some decent films, but I’ve never regretted switching.
