feel like 3+ hour mega blockbuster has been a thing for over a decade now, some of the Pirates movies were long af, that Spider-Man and the LOTR, etc. plus people LOVE to binge. i like a long movie myself, let me really soak in the atmosphere. IMO 1.5 hr is the ideal length based on REM/sleep cycles.I don't get the hate for long movies either. We can love Mandalorian which is longer, and has more filler. We are so woke to film length though because that one was divided up for us.
there is nothing wrong w a long movie. the reason they didn't want it long was, that meant less showings, on less screens, thus less money. make a shorter movie, make more money.
like many other bad decisions that hurt the ST, this was a money based one.
