What Movie Was So Bad You Actually Walked Out Of It?

It's morbin' time...

Summertime is a big time for movies. There are always huge blockbusters, major studio pics, and other tentpole films to choose from.

But not all of them are great. In fact, sometimes they're pretty bad. (Sorry, it's just the truth!)

So, when author Linwood Barclay took to Twitter to say that he walked out of a particular dinosaur movie the other day, fellow writer and filmmaker Stephen King weighed in with his "walk out" movie —Transformers, for the record (assuming he meant the first one from 2007).

@linwood_barclay I have walked out of only one movie as an adult: TRANSFORMERS. Would like to know what other movies people have walked out on.

He then wondered what other movies people disliked so much that they actually walked out of them. And his followers' responses ranged from generally accepted "bad" movies like The Last Airbender (2010)...

@StephenKing @linwood_barclay No joke, the only time I’ve ever walked out on a movie was at home, and it was The Last Airbender (2010).

...to movies based on King's own work like the critically panned The Dark Tower (2017).

@StephenKing @linwood_barclay Tbh The Dark Tower. I'm sorry. I tried. But I love the work too much to accept that as the visual tribute to it. The Dark Tower books are sentimental to me for personal reasons. I need it as written. I'd rather have my movie in my head than the one that was on the screen.

So, I want to pose the same question to you all: What movie have you walked out on?

Perhaps you were SO bored out of your mind that you didn't even bother to wait for the twist in Lady in the Water.

Paul Giamatti, Bryce Dallas Howard

Maybe you realized you bit off more than you could chew by the time you were halfway into The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Or is it possible that you were so royally disappointed with Morbius that you stood up and left because you didn't want to waste any more of your time with it?!

Whatever the movie was — bad, controversial, gross, boring — we want to know the film that made you walk out AND WHY!!! Tell us in the comments below for a chance to be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post!
