    Default sentence

    a. I watch films you'll get bored watching ten minutes of.
    b. I watch films you'll get bored if you watch ten minutes of.

    Are these sentences grammatical?

    Both #1 and #2 sound somewhat awkward to me.
    How about:
    I watch films that will bore you after 10 minutes.
