    People Shared Single Scenes That Ruined Whole Movies For Them And, Honestly, Fair

    Big "yikes" ahead, y'all.

    We've all had the experience of enjoying a perfectly serviceable movie, when — from seemingly out of nowhere — a scene comes along and kind of just ruins the whole thing for you.

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    And this experience was truly highlighted this week when Redditor deadbiscuit asked, "What single moment ruined a film?" and people came through with some really honest answers.

    20th Century Fox

    So, with that in mind, here are just a few of the film-ruining scenes shared:

    1. The opening scene, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker (2019)

    "It completely ruined the entire story, and the entire reason it has that title."

    Warner Bros.

    "Not that a particular moment ruined the movie, as it’s all terrible, but the moment when Cara Delevingne’s character says, 'You don’t have the balls!' She’s supposed to be some ancient monster ghost or something and in one of her few lines she says...that?!"

    20th Century Fox

    "When Deadpool enters with his mouth sewn shut and long blades coming out of his hands...why?"

    6. The fight scene, Breaking Dawn: Part 2 (2012)

    Summit Entertainment

    "As if the Twilight movie series wasn’t lame enough to begin with, the whole 'it was all a dream' thing at the ending of the last one was really stupid. Like, come on! I booed and threw my popcorn."

    7. The villain reveal scene, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

    Warner Bros.

    "The 'Blah, it's me, Johnny Depp!' scene in the last two minutes. It was especially annoying after having gotten a great, intense Colin Farrell performance."

    8. The death scene, The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

    Warner Bros.

    "Miranda Tates's death toward the end of the movie. It's maybe the worst 'death' scene ever."

    9. The twist scene, Now You See Me (2013)

    Summit Entertainment

    "The ending of this movie made ZERO SENSE, and I fucking hated it."

    10. The naming scene, Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

    LucasFilm Ltd.

    "When Han Solo gets his name at the airport. Up until that point, it was a fun little romp in the Star Wars universe — but that made me groan out loud."

    11. The "Martha" scene, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    Warner Bros.

    "'MARTHA...WHY DID U SAY THAT NAME?!'"

    12. The second vomit scene, Pitch Perfect (2012)

    View this video on YouTube

    Universal Pictures

    "It was a fun movie, very enjoyable, and I loved Anna Kendrick in it. It's nothing special, but it was a lot of fun and would've been worthy of frequent re-watches if it weren't for THOSE scenes.

    The first vomiting scene in the beginning, while gross, was a good character moment and helped establish the leader of the group's motivations. The second one though was unnecessary, and borderline offensive and incredibly unfunny. That scene alone is the reason why I've only seen this movie once. If I could get a version with that scene cut out of the film, I would probably buy it!"

    13. The Ares scene, Wonder Woman (2017)

    Warner Bros.

    "The whole damn section with Ares was awful. They really should have left him out of the movie and focused more on the human enemies instead of a literal god."

    14. The assistant's death scene, Jurassic World (2015)

    View this video on YouTube

    Universal Pictures

    "It wasn’t a great movie to begin with, but the fact that poor assistant/babysitter received a horrific villain’s death at the end for no reason sure didn’t help."

    15. The hacking scene, Skyfall (2012)

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "Q violating all semblance of intelligence, standard practices, and common sense by hooking a potentially infected device to MI6 main computers. It was a pretty good film up to that point, but I checked out after that scene. I wondered who wrote that crap."

    16. The jetpack scene, Kick-Ass (2010)

    Lionsgate

    "It's still a great film, but that whole sequence took it a step too far."

    17. The dimension scene, Interstellar (2014)

    Paramount Pictures

    "The whole 'love is the fourth dimension' thing. That movie did such an incredible job of selling its science, I was totally on board with all of the rules and was completely immersed, like only the best sci-fi can do — until that damn tesseract scene. My suspension of disbelief was just shattered there."

    Lionsgate

    "It’s not the best movie to begin with, I’ll admit it, but I was genuinely enjoying it before the ending fucked it all up."

    19. And finally — the final battle scene, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 (2011)
