Movies are a popular way to escape from boring reality. Some movies take us on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, and some make us excited and hyped up. Unfortunately, there are bad movies that we would rather forget as well.
These are the movies that, according to the audience, were so unwatchable people just quit halfway through. How many of these films have you watched and do you agree with them?

The first Wonder Woman movie was kinda cool. There were some issues here and there, but nothing too annoying to watch. Oh, if only the sequel Wonder Woman 1984 was that good. The script was just cheesy and full of plot holes, and the special effects weren’t that great too. Overall it’s a very disappointing sequel. Such a shame, it had so much potential.
2. Mulan (2020)
If you want a story that empowers women and inspires little girls everywhere to work hard so they can achieve their dream then don’t watch this movie. Unlike in the original where Mulan grew to be as strong as the other soldiers through courage and determination, the live-action Mulan was just born talented. And they also decided to remove the comedic relief from the dragon and add a witchy lady so they could do cool CGI.
3. Men in Black: International (2019)

The original Men in Black was great. It was a combination of cool sci-fi troupes, comedy, and more. The remake was nothing like that. It was terrible. The story was falling apart and the characters were not well-written at all. With Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson as the lead roles, the movie had the chance to be a fun movie at least, but no. It was awful.
4. Cats (2019)

Everything about this movie is just…wrong and weird. It’s a cringy CGI mess that it’s almost painful to watch till the end. It was so bad that when Andrew Lloyd Webber (the composer of the original musical) saw the movie, he went out and bought a dog. He also described the film as “off-the-scale all wrong,” which we can all agree with.
5. Charlie’s Angels (2019)

The original Charlie’s Angels with Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore is an icon for fabulousness. It’s so fun to watch! The characters were truly well-written. They were strong women, not just women who can punch things really hard. Well, the 2019 remake is the total opposite. It didn’t have any charisma or energy of the original. One user on Reddit even thinks the actors who were chosen for Charlie’s Angels 2019 “seemed like high school cheerleaders.”
6. Aquaman (2018)

The movie told the story of Arthur Curry, the human-born heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. He went on a quest to prevent a war between the worlds of ocean and land. Jason Momoa was great. In fact, he was the best thing in the movie. Everything else was just dull and dumb.
7. The Kissing Booth (2018)

Don’t let Netflix trick you into thinking this was a funny rom-com. It’s not. Instead of being funny or romantic, the movie and its characters are kinda creepy and problematic. It’s the worst thing you can watch if you want to see a rom-com.
8. The Mummy (2017)

The 1999 Mummy was a charming movie with the right amount of horror and comedy combined with compelling special effects upon rewatch. It’s a classic icon of the action/adventure genre. Maybe that was why the remake version failed so hard. None of the pieces really gel together. To make matter worse, Universal raised the expectation for the movie and its “Dark Universe” so high that it was hard to meet those expectations.
9. The Emoji Movie (2017)
There is no doubt that The Emoji Movie is one of the worst movies of 2017. There is no plot, and the ending was like Patrick Stewart’s emoji character. It makes people can’t help but think it’s a ripoff of Inside Out.
10. Death Note (2017)
The 2017 Netflix adaptation of Death Note is terrible. The plot was filled with holes, bad character development, and none of the tension that the original anime had. While the anime made us question the hubris of man and the meaning of justice, the adaptation was just plain edgy troupe. It couldn’t hold a candle to the original.
11. Suicide Squad (2016)

The entire movie is just a mess that you shouldn’t waste your time finishing it. Bad soundtrack choices, dumb one-liners, an incoherent plot, and ugly visuals. Better to watch a recap version of it, rather than the full movie.
12. 50 Shades Of Grey (2015)

For two main characters in a spicy romantic story, the lack of chemistry between Ana and grey on screen is just legendary. They even looked like they dread each other in some scenes. And the BDSM sex is boring. Terrible writing, bad plot, and overall a disaster.
13. Mean Girls 2 (2011)

The girls in this movie weren’t bullies like in the first part. They just did straight-up crimes they could have gotten arrested for. The plot was inconsistent and predictable, the characters were shallow and generic, and the acting was awful and very forced. It gave off a very strong “I’m not like the other girls” vibe.
14. The Last Airbender (2010)

The series was awesome, the movie adaptation was not. Names were mispronounced, the bending was atrocious, and the actors were terrible. A Reddit user even commented: “For me, it was after the group of earth benders did Zumba to levitate a pebble.”
15. The Room (2003)

And last but not least: The Room. This movie was notoriously bad. It was listed as one of the worst movies of all time. If you’re expecting a movie so bad it’s good, then this is not it. You will feel angry once you finish it, that is if you bear to can watch it till the end
