David Fincher is not the only one who finds it increasingly difficult to go to the movies: recently, Juan del Val ranted in ‘El hormiguero’ about what in his opinion is The worst thing about going to the movies: that movies last more than an hour and a half.
“The movie that is good becomes bad”
The presenter Gloria Serra was Thursday’s guest on ‘El hormiguero’ and once the interview concluded, Pablo Motos and company began to debate in one of their usual gatherings.
During it, Juan del Val started talking about how he didn’t like batucadas or going to the movies. Specifically, to Mr. It bothered him that “nowadays movies all last more than 4 hours”:
“Long movies. I went to see ‘The Moon Killers’, great. 3 hours and 26 minutes. If you can’t tell it in two hours, don’t tell it anymore. We’re talking about something unbearable, putting yourself in the cinema and the movie that is good becomes bad.”
“Movies used to last 90 minutes. The argument is that it’s for people to go to the movies and no, then people won’t go to the movies. People can’t go to the movies if you’re going to spend 4 hours without being able to pee.” .
The others laughed and thanked him and Pablo Motos agreed with him, pointing out the contrast between the speed of the world of TikTok and Instagram and that apparently huge number of current movies that last so long.
