    22 More Movies People Either Stopped Halfway Through Or Just Walked Out Of

    Because sometimes the backs of your eyelids aren't enough.

    A while back, we took a look at a Reddit thread that asked users, "What movie did you start watching and then said, 'Fuck this, I'm not finishing it'?" and their answers were so good, they sparked even more brilliant responses from our BuzzFeed Community! So here are EVEN MORE movies people NOPED the heck out of before they could finish them:

    1. Suicide Squad (2016)

    Warner Bros.

    "It was like they got a great cast, designed really cool costumes, and then wrote the script as an afterthought. I just couldn't sit through the whole thing."

    2. Love Actually (2003)

    Universal Pictures

    "I’ve never been able to finish it and I've tried multiple times — I hate that movie! It’s basically a shallow male fantasy disguised as a rom-com. The dialogue is so cringeworthy, and the characters’ personalities are generic at best. I have no idea why that movie is popular!"

    3. Eragon (2006)

    20th Century Fox

    "I was obsessed with the books as a teen, and the movie came out around my birthday. I BEGGED my entire family to go see it. I tried to walk out when the baby Saphira got struck by lightning and all of a sudden was adult Saphira. No...just...no."

    4. Martyrs (2008)

    Wild Bunch

    "I love horror movies, but not far from the end, I had to stop when we see Anna after *that scene* because it was just too hard to watch."

    5. Fifty Shades Darker (2017)

    Universal Pictures

    "I disliked the first movie but still got through it out of morbid curiosity. Then my boyfriend at the time and I decided to go see a movie after work one night (it was like 11 p.m. and we had walked all the way there, so we weren’t going to leave without seeing SOMETHING), and what we wanted to see was sold out. The only tickets they had left were for this one. We got about 20 minutes in and left. We were also broke at the time, so...it was a lot to waste movie ticket money. It was THAT bad."

    6. Sharknado (2013)

    The Asylum / SyFy Films

    "I tried...I really tried. With all the hype about how 'awesome' and 'funny' it was when it came out, I figured I'd give it a shot. I don't mind dumb but still funny movies — but this was just so stupid. I couldn't make it 10 minutes into it. I turned it off. I just do not understand why so many people raved about it."

    7. Rocket Man (2019)

    Paramount Pictures

    "I love Elton John. I read his most recent book and enjoyed it. What an amazingly gifted performer, but this was hard to sit through. They barely played any of his music. It may not be the worst movie ever, but it was certainly the biggest letdown for me, personally."

    8. The Dead Don't Die (2019)

    Focus Features

    "I know some people love it because they love the director, but I was struggling to stay awake."

    kaseyg4c9ca6452

    9. Swiped (2018)

    iTunes / Netflix

    "It was on Netflix, so I didn’t 'walk out,' but I did give up after like 15 minutes. The plot made no sense. It was full of clichés. Just so bad."

    mlward

    10. Red Sparrow (2018)

    20th Century Fox

    "The one with Jennifer Lawrence. She is such a great actor, but the movie honestly disgusted me. They went way too far showing some graphic sexual assault scenes. I couldn't finish it."

    11. Crazy/Beautiful (2001)

    Buena Vista Pictures

    "I absolutely had to walk out of the theater, it was so very bad."

    12. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

    Paramount Pictures

    "I tried watching this on an airplane once but couldn't get past the fridge scene at the beginning...and that was on an airplane, where I truly had nothing better to do."

    13. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013)

    Paramount Pictures

    "The first one was really funny, so my husband and I were excited for a sequel. We turned it off after 40 minutes. It was so bad."

    14. Beetlejuice (1988)

    Warner Bros.

    "My grandma and grandpa told me they walked out of this when it was in theaters and haven't even tried to watch it since."

    Banana2005

    15. The Lake House (2006)

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    "The one with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves about a time-traveling mailbox. After the first letter, I was done. I've sat through some DUMB movies, but this one, I could not take."

    desireen425a9b12b

    16. Cloud Atlas (2012)

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    "Genuinely the only film where I left the theater. It was so boring and confusing, and it seemed like it was going nowhere."

    agni2003

    17. Iron Man (2008)

    Marvel Studios

    "This won’t go over well, but I’ve started this movie three times and have fallen asleep three times. I CANNOT make it past the first half hour."

    kellihollemans

    18. Aloha (2015)

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "The one with Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone. I just couldn’t sit through it. I love them both, but it was truly so bad."

    BethanyMB

    19. Ted (2012)

    Universal Pictures

    "While I didn't walk out, I fell asleep watching this in the theater. Thought it was so boring, and my friends think I’m weird for not liking it. I usually love raunchy movies like this, but I can’t get my head around it."

    20. Holmes & Watson (2018)

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "It's that Will Farrell movie, and it was, hands down, the worst movie I've paid to see. I couldn't do it. It was so horrendously bad."

    alexp42f9f3419

    21. Spring Breakers (2012)

    A24

    "I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t care about it. I turned it off because I had something else to do and just never bothered to finish it."

    AmazingAnne90

    22. And finally, Movie 43 (2013)

    Relativity Media

    "This movie was so stupid, I was afraid it dumbed me down forever. It wasn't funny, it was just awful. I could not make it through."
