Movies make you travel to a different world and experience hundreds and thousands of lives, let you into the minds of people who think not the same as you, and help to detach from your own problems. It is a popular way to spend time but you want it to be quality time as there are more productive ways to spend a couple of hours of your day.

Some movies are so bad that you don’t need to finish them to know they are not worth your time. To make other people aware of such movies, Ramaal2000 asked Reddit users, “What movie did you start watching then said ‘F**k this, I'm not finishing this?’”

Are there any other movies that made you stand up in the cinema and just leave, or turn off your computer, TV, or other devices because they were so unwatchable? Let us know in the comments and upvote the submissions you agree with the most.

I grew up loving this show. (Theater) Saw it 3 times. I still like the original cast recording. I tried watching this on HBO and turned it off about a quarter way in. Never went back to finish it.

Everybody was raving about how good this movie was. And it was very well made. But it's just sad. A marriage splitting apart is awful and showing it so realistically is depressing.

Noah (2014)

Noah (2014) Noah with Russel Crowe. Gave it about 10 minutes then me and the missus looked at each other.

"Maybe it'll get better"

"That *maybe* is doing a lot of work"

We gave up when the Twisted Rock Creatures just casually arrive and nobody bats an eyelid, or even explains them.

It might get better, but I'm 40ish, so only have a few decades left, and dont want to risk wasting the hours required to watch this again.

A Wrinkle In Time (2018)

A Wrinkle In Time (2018) foxyboy8:

A Wrinkle in Time.

Trash.

Krakenzmama added:

I really was looking forward to AWIT. I had a rough time as a fifth grader in the 1980s and it was THE book that saved my soul as a kid - I saw myself as Meg- I read and reread it until I was an adult.

So I was truly excited to see this movie with my bf and his kids. After I left the theater I was mad for weeks every time I thought of it.

I didn't mind how it was cast. but the writers skipped over chapters of the book, practically made Oprah the star of the thing and totally made everything up from whole cloth after Meg and Cal escaped Kamazotz. It wasn't even the cliff notes version - it was like the kindergartner version after the saw the trailer once and tried to make the ending deep when they didn't earn it.

Trash indeed

The Passion Of The Christ (2004)

The Passion Of The Christ (2004) The Passion of the Christ, and I remember the exact moment.

(spoilers?)

In one of the first scenes where Jesus is being tortured by the Romans, Roman One reveals his Cat o’ Nine Tails with barbed hooks. He slams it against a wooden table, and pulls it back to a shower of splinters. He then proceeds to send chunks of Jesus’ back everywhere.

I thought to myself: just kill him already.

And then I found myself wondering: was THAT the point of all this gore-porn? To drive home that the only end to pain and suffering was through THE DEATH OF CHRIST?

Just as I was about to give Mel Gibson grudging respect for maybe almost making a point, Roman One flips Jesus over and starts all over again on Jesus’ front. “Nope,” I thought to myself, “Mel was enjoying himself too much when he made this.” My girlfriend at the time noped out hard, and I definitely wasn’t going to refuse.

The worst thing was leaving and seeing the CHILDREN that these church people brought to see this movie that was rated R solely for violence, their eyes either buried in their seats or dilated to the size of dinner plates, and (I assume) blaming themselves for what they were seeing on screen.

F**k that movie. Happy Easter?

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. Huge fan of the books but couldn’t make it half an hour into the movie. Literally walked out of the theatre.

ElectricErik added:

Could have been the next Harry Potter and I felt terrible for Riordan. They should have used kids like they did in the Harry Potter movies because they start out 11-12 years old in the books. I don’t even think they read the books til the second one because they gave Alexandra Daddario a blonde wig in the second movie because her character is in fact supposed to be blonde. And they meet a bad guy in the second movie that they shouldn’t even think about until like the 3rd or 4th book.

So yeah, bad movies.

Yes, Eragon the movie was such a disappointment. It felt like they wrote the script based only on the back cover book summary (rather than actually reading the book)

Twice now they have pooched the dark phoenix story. WHY mess with it. I understand the difficulties inherent in the story but they could have come a lot closer to the story. The same with the monstrosity of the new Murder on the Orient Express. WHY change a classic? Vanity? Hubris???

Robin Hood (2018)

Robin Hood (2018) The Robin Hood movie. The bad guys have machine gun crossbows. It's f*****g bizarre.

Edit: For anyone that hasn't seen it and is curious, the first scene has Robin Hood in the crusades where the crusaders wear modern gear and flak jackets and they hut hut hut around a bombed out city clearing houses with longbows half drawn at the shoulder like they're spec ops dudes but they get pinned down by an automatic ballista that's basically a machine gun nest but it's OK because they fire a flare arrow over it which calls in an air strike from some nearby trebuchets. I didn't hate this as much as some of the people replying but the whole thing was so goofy and stupid that I couldn't be bothered finishing it.

Hearts And Armour (1983)

Hearts And Armour (1983) Hearts AND Armour. (CORRECTED!)

I have absolutely no excuse other than I paid $1 in the Blockbuster bin for it and needed to win the "Worst movie" contest with a bunch of friends on Fantasy Movie Friday.

I won.

I still win with it.

I still haven't watched all of it.

Note to anyone who attempts to watch it - whenever the blonde heaves her bosoms, tosses her hair, and yells "Let me fight him, I'll fight him" take a drink and you'll be dead before the end of the film, so you'll be out of your misery anyway.

FYI: You don't know bad cinema until the bad guys have the evil henchmen in a sword and sorcery flick is wear a spangly rooster costume fight chicken style alongside the guy in a sequined top hat surrounded by knives and bowtie on top of an ape suit.

YUP, folks - it's THAT bad.

And I own it on VHS.

Scary Movie 5 (2013)

Scary Movie 5 (2013) Years back, I used to love the no-effort parody movies like Epic Movie, Scary Movie, Superhero Movie, Meet the Spartans etc.

Until I watched Scary Movie 5.

When 5 came out, I couldn't see it immediately at the time so I forgot about it and rented it years later. When watching it I realised none of the jokes were funny because they all relied on referencing and parodying the horror movies of that time which were no longer relevant. It was a slog and I turned it off and returned it half way through.

The Invisible Man (2020)

The Invisible Man (2020) Should have turned off Invisible Man, but my BF was enjoying it.

I literally spent 75% of that movie thinking "NOPE. NOPE. NOPE. Is it over yet? Surely this is the end. Oh god, it's not. F**k." On repeat.

It wasnt even the fact that he was invisible, just everyone not believing the woman over and over....nooope.

It's been 14 years since I broke up with my controlling gas lighting ex. Clearly not long enough to watch this movie. And my ex wasnt ever physically violent.

-10/10. Hated it.
