I didn't run spell check on this post, because it would have taken too long.

If you find a problem, I'm sorry.

The form outweighed any other considerations in this post. I hope you can understand.

this movie was supposed to be about running, Lola, and frantic action, but i found myself fastforwarding through it because it was so tiresome.

I loved it. Maybe because nobody told me what it was supposed to be about. Or because my lack of short-term memory overcame the repetitiveness. Or because the form outweighed other considerations.

Hmm . . . I'm with jackthunder on this one. It's hard to understand how a film focusing on a frantic run to save someone's life could be so boring.

Of course, I can't comment on the whole film, since I fell asleep halfway through . . .
