    19 Movies People Wish They Could Delete From Reality

    Because not all films are bound for the Oscars.

    When it comes to movies, there's always a fair share of good and bad picks. While film buffs may not always agree on which one is the worst, we all have one film that we wished never hit the silver screen.

    When Reddit user Master_Freeze asked the online community "If there was one movie you could completely delete from reality, what would it be?" there was a flood of answers that came in.

    We've rounded up some of the most memorable responses to the thread. Check them out below:

    1. Son of the Mask

    Comedy Central / Via

    "That movie is so bad that even though I know for a fact that I have definitely seen it, I do not recall one single detail of it. I completely blocked it from memory."


    2. The Dark Tower

    FOX / Via

    "Apparently people who didn’t read the books enjoyed this movie. My advice: If you enjoyed what you saw, read the books if you want a really amazing story that blows the film version out of the water."


    3. Artemis Fowl

    NBC / Via

    "There are enough issues with the film to make even a casual watcher hate it —forget about those who read the books. They went beyond screwing up."


    4. Eragon

    POP / Via

    "One of the most disappointing movies of my lifetime."


    5. The Last Airbender

    Comedy Central / Via

    "I KNEW, the very first second that I clicked on this thread, that The Last Airbender would be one of, if not the top, comment."


    6. 365 Days

    ABC / Via

    "At least 50 Shades of Gray had meme potential. This is"


    7. Pacific Rim: Uprising

    Giphy / Via

    "The most confusing sequels to one of the most interesting first movies. I can't even remember what happened in the movie, only that John Boyega was in it."


    8. Gigli

    Giphy / Via

    "This is probably before a lot of people’s generation, but Gigli."


    9. Disaster Movie

    Universal Pictures / Via

    "The worst piece of cinema I have seen in my life."


    10. Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser

    NBC / Via

    "The first one was so good, and the sequel is just so terrible; my friend and I couldn't make it past like 10 minutes of it."


    11. Cats

    truTV / Via

    "I don't know what the director was thinking with Cats."


    12. The Human Centipede

    20th Century Fox / Via

    "It's haunted me ever since I've watched it. It's so disturbing too."


    13. Downsizing

    Giphy / Via

    "First time I’ve walked out of a movie theater, and I’ve easily seen over 100 movies in theaters. Started off interesting enough and then completely lost sight of the plot."


    14. Minions

    Universal Pictures / Via

    "Not Despicable Me, just Minions. Despicable Me was great."


    15. Mean Girls 2

    E! / Via

    "Unnecessary sequel."


    16. Dragonball Evolution

    ABC / Via

    "That movie is horrible! Thank you for commenting — I was beginning to wonder if nobody was going to say anything."


    17. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    MTV / Via

    "Everyone just scratching their heads wondering why Voldemort is suddenly back when last they heard he was a zit on the back of some professor's melon."


    18. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    NBC / Via

    "Just so they can redo it. I liked the sequel trilogy up until that movie. I even liked most of the movie. I hated the ending."


    19. Battlefield Earth

    Bravo / Via

    "It's quite literally the worst movie I have ever seen. Though some others mentioned definitely deserve it."
