Movies I Turned OFF In 30 Minutes Or Less

by TejasNair | created - 02 Feb 2014 | updated - 4 months ago | Public

A list of movies that are so depressing and boring, I stopped watching them and maybe even throw the DVD away, never to be found again by anyone. While in a theatre, I wait till intermission to get out and later cry over spilt milk.

Also, the title is sort of a figure of speech, which means the list also contains films which I did watch wholly but did not like.
