Yep, I’ve no issues with a long film that is well enough written or edited so that there’s no fat in the movie.
I struggle to think of good examples where that is the case, and whether it be TV, Film, novels or comics - the character stuff is what I’m interested in.
Wolf of Wall Street and The Godfather spring to mind as long movies that are either entertaining enough or intelligent enough throughout (the former more so in terms of entertainment and plot).
When it comes to action I’ve no interested in watching superheroes knocking fuck out of each other for three quarters of an hour, in shots that are so close up and jump from one angle to another that you can’t see the action anyway - this is where my problem lies with this type of movie.
I also think, for example, LoTR trilogy could cut about 4 hours of pish out and make for a far more interesting experience. Most of the run time is spent talking about potatoes.
