Epic Movies: In which I celebrate finally getting diagnosed and treated for adhd

I've always avoided long movies. I can't ever concentrate on them properly and it makes me feel bad. Every now and then I've forced myself to watch a particular critically acclaimed 3+ hour juggernaut but I rarely enjoy them; if I do it's because I've managed to watch it in small chunks over a 4 day period or something. Basically the struggle is real.

Turns out I can now blame my faulty brain chemistry for this particular failing. Now that I've been diagnosed and prescribed meds hopefully I'll be able to watch (and not struggle through) more 3+ hour films in the near future :)

All films are 3 hours+ in length. Recommendations are definitely welcome (recs for tv shows to bingewatch would also be gr8).
