    The original “Rambo” is an economical 91 minutes. “Annie Hall” is 94. So is “The Road Warrior.” And “Easy Rider,” even with the long drug sequence. “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” needs only 92 minutes to convey the entire high school experience.

    Why have a 90 minute movie when you can have a 2 1/2 hour movie with 90 minutes of material bloated out with useless subplots, useless scenes, and a lot of slo motion?

    Because they don't have to squeeze a movie onto film reels anymore and instead of arbitrary time limits, people tell the stories they want in the time they feel they need?

    90 minutes isn't enough time for product placement.

    Most of Stallone's films are 90 minutes, so it gets played more often at the theater = more $$

    The 60's had a lot of 3+ hour epics "Lawrence of Arabia" "Dr. Zhviago" Don't know how anyone in those days could take such a long movie.

    90 minutes is about all I can sit still for. With a zillion trailers at the beginning.
