Sometimes when you are watching a movie, you find something really annoying in it that totally ruins your mood. Whether it’s unnecessary forced romance or scenes shot in the extreme dark, there are many things that might make a person give up on a movie.

“When there’s a scene that’s just advertising a brand.”
“Whispered dialogue, ear shattering action sequences.”
“When they repeat the same sentence 2-3-10 times in the story for no reason, just to have a kind of motto.”
“When the villain is just bad for no reason whatsoever.”
“When it’s so dark you actually can’t see what is happening. Also characters that’s mumble their lines. Drives me nuts.”
“Firing more ammo than the gun actually holds without reloading. Car keys in sun visors. Hacking a protected computer system in seconds.”
“When people figure out someone’s password in literally no time.”
Breaking the rules they set
The Walking Dead did this so blatantly, that I couldn’t watch it anymore. First season: Walkers can smell us so we have to cover ourselves in rotting meat to escape. Second season: Oh that hoard of Walkers can’t smell us with this car in between us and them.”
Characters acting out of character just to make the plot work. Immediately makes me see them as puppets for storytelling rather than people and I stop caring about them.
The last 2 seasons of Game of thrones”
“Forced romance. Sometimes movies don’t need it and that’s ok.”
In superhero movies when the balance of someone’s abilities constantly changes.
Especially in fight scenes when a character could end the fight in 2 seconds but that doesnt allow for an epic battle scene so instead that character just randomly decided to avoid using their most valuable abilities.
This completely takes me out of the moment.
The Flash series lost me because of this issue.. literally every fight with a non speedster would be over in 0.2 seconds.”
“When they give out the whole plot in a trailer.”
“Characters not showing emotion when someone passes away. Often they look a bit sad for one shot, and then the movie continues like nothing happened. Totally takes me out of the movie.”
“Cringey and inappropriate use of gen z slang.”
Overanimated, overacted friend of the main character.
Akwafina in Shang-Chi. She’s good but she was over the top in this one.”
“When they use CGI to make an almost 80-year-old man look like a 40-year-old but he still moves like an 80-year-old when trying to kick a poor shopkeepers a**.”
“running through wilderness in heels for the majority of a movie. IRKSOME.”
“I watch movies with subtitles. When they speak a different language and it just says “speaks foreign language.” Especially when it’s not just a few lines, but actual dialog.”
“Sex. No seriously. When I see a movie labelled “Action/Thriller”, I want action or thriller. I do not want the undercover spy to start diving deep inside some random girl who may or may not be involved in the plot.”
“The “exotic foreign country” yellow filter.”
