I find it almost impossible to avert my eyes from moving image. It doesn't matter how bad it is. If the sound is not in headphones, it will suck me in for sure. Case in point: The Core on the bus trip from Boston to NYC two thanksgivings ago. I had about a billion more interesting things to read in my bag, but I couldn't stop looking.
