Now that's just not fair. You have to at least break it down to the 'original' 6.. The Next Generation 4 or the reboot 3..

Of the originals.. Only 5 was bad enough to walk out of.

The Next Gens.. Insurrection is a possibility, but I didn't find it THAT bad. (Only First Contact was a solid movie out of this batch)

The Reboots.. I haven't seen any of them in the theaters. The mere mention of them makes me want to go to a theater and walk out, though. Sorry, i'm not a fan of investing 40 years in a series only to have the flavor of the month come along and say "Oh yeah.. none of that ever happened"

A couple of times.

In both cases, I waited about 30 minutes for the movie to get better and it didn't.

One of them was Guardians of the Galaxy. I seem to remember the other one being Prometheus.

I almost walked out on Independence Day 2 because it was such a bucket of turds compared to the first one, which of course is a classic.

As a side note, 90%+ of the CGI fests today that are passed off as "action" or "sci-fi" are utter crap.

Just once so far: the 2005 remake of King Kong. Horrible effects (Kong changes size all the time), vile and callous disregard for the lives of characters you've become interested in, and complete disregard for the moral of the old Kong story. And baaaaad acting! And the sound was painfully loud. That was the main reason I left, actually. Since then I've watched it on TV, and it's still a horrible movie, but at least you can turn the sound down...

I can't decide whether it was meant to be serious....fail. Campy.....fail. Funny....fail.


Luckily it was Cheap Old Farts Day at the Movies, but that's $12 and two hours we'll never get back again.
That's surprising since I've read two different articles by women journalists talking about how they openly wept to see such an empowered female character. I thought that sounded stupid (as if there haven't been other empowered female characters), but I figured it would at least have been halfway decent. Oh well.

When I was in high school I dated a guy who was the type to just walk out of movies. We actually walked out on Blind Date with Bruce Willis and Kim Bassinger, and I haven't seen anything since that has redeemed that movie. We also walked out of Mystic Pizza and Raising Arizona, and I really like both movies now.

The Little Hours (2017). Three minutes, and I stood up and walked out of there. Asked for the manager and got my money back. What was I thinking?

If I hadn't been there with a friend I would have walked out of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. What a boring movie and I loved the first one. Back in the day I wanted to leave the theatre watching Chariots of Fire and The Stepford Wives remake but once again I was with someone who was enjoying them.


I was watching The Cleaner with Samuel L. Jackson by myself and left after 30 minutes. Didn't even care how it ended.

I couldn't believe how dumb that movie was. But I couldn't walk out of the movie because the concept was so alien to me.

I didn't see Harley Davidson & the Marlboro Man or Tango and Cash at the theater. But if I had, I might very well have walked out. Those two movies eclipsed even Iron Eagle as the worst movies I'd ever seen.

Yes ,Magnolia...........the worst movie I have ever seen, in my life.
