  • La La Land.

    If you really, really must waste 2 Hrs of your life, don't go to see 'La La Land', but instead, paint a door and watch the paint dry - you'll find it far more entertaining than the film!

    By the time we had driven the 20 mins home, my partner commented that she had already forgotten it, which is a measure of just how engaging the film was.

    I will have you know that watching paint dry is fascinating!

    I have been watching paint dry for the past forty years, and my father watched paint dry for nearly fifty years before me, and I am still not bored. Indeed, there are some aspects of the process that are still not fully understood by paint chemists after more than a century of commercial paint making.

    If you really need a byword for boredom try golf.

      Or tennis - stupefyingly tedious! The relief I felt when Andy Murray was knocked out was like that of a particularly satisfying bowel movement!

          Almost anything becomes interesting if you can make money from it!

            I wouldn't enjoy golf even if I made money from it.

            A good walk spoilt in my view.

              For the money top golfers earn I'm sure I could quickly come to like it!

                  I'm in the business of watching paint dry, often it does so all too quickly. For me the last word in boredom is watching cricket - aspecially if we're losing ...

                    I suspect the other golfers would become impatient if you got your tripod and camera out on the 9th tee though John.

                        Jim, all credit for sitting through to the finish of La La Land. We left after 15 minutes. If I had to find one word to describe it, crass is the first one that comes mind.

                            Re: La La Land.

                            Can I enquire which is the best colour to watch for maximum enjoyment?
                            Should you watch in artificial light, daylight or darkness to enhance the experience.
                            Even the title would put me off attending such a film thanks for the warning.
