People Describe The Worst Movies They've Ever Seen

Movies are supposed to make you feel something ... sometimes that something is a deep, deep sense of regret.

One Reddit user asked:

What's the worst movie you ever seen?

... did you know there was a movie so bad that fans of the show it's based off of literally refuse to acknowledge its existence? Thanks, Shyamalan.

There Is No Film In Ba Sing Se


Avatar: The Last Airbender

- JadiePi

You must be mistaken. There was never an Avatar Last Airbender movie made. Never. I'm a big fan so would love for a live action movie to be made. But alas, such an event has yet to occur.

- Nashthinks

Same, that would be awesome. There's literally no way for a movie like that to be terribly messed up.

- stuffedpapi

It wasn't that the movie was so very bad. It was bad, undeniably, but on its own it's pretty unremarkably bad. Meh.

The problem is that the animated series is SO GOOD. The gap between the two is so vast that anyone who saw both just says "Nope, that wasn't The Last Airbender. Guess no live action movie was ever made."

Conflicting Emotions

The Emoji Movie- my girls made me sit through it when it first came out and I still haven't forgiven them.

- HeidiAnn2029

I took six kids to see that for my daughter's birthday.

The theatre had those roomy, reclining seats. At the time I was going through a severe situational depression and was always exhausted.

I stretched out and had one of the best naps of my life through the entire movie, waking during final credits feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. The kids absolutely loved the movie, and we ate at Red Robin afterwards.

Best. Party. Ever.

Fight And Flight

Holmes and Watson

- Scicist

That movie triggered both my fight and flight responses.

- cyclopath

I remember the director trying to hype it up by saying "Whatever type of comedy you're into, there's something here for you".

And the thing is, he was right....but probably not in the way he intended. The movie throws every type of humour up against the wall in the desperate hope that something will work: slapstick, gross-out, surreal, stupid...they even try throwing 'political' jokes in there to score a "duh huh America and Trump" chuckle.

I've never seen a movie flailing around so aimlessly for a cheap laugh.

No Mushu, No Cricket

Mulan live action, no mushu, no cricket, an actor who supports the Hong Kong police, and having to pay money to watch the movie on a service I'm already paying for!?

- Shreksophone07

Plus they took away all of Mulan's growth and development as a soldier and as a woman.....and replaced it with some cheap magical "Use The Force" bull.

- MisterMarcus

Like how could they leave out Cri-Kee bro...

- Smo0k

And to think this was the one movie people actually wanted a l I've action version. A more serious take without the talking animals and songs, but more on the war. Get Disney decided to go and again not listen to fans and basically copy the same story(only with no charm/emotion/struggle). Swear it's Rise of Skywalker all over again....Rey, Mulan, really Disney?!

A Deliberate Attack

Son of the mask. The entire time I had a WTF is happening look on my face. Then when it was over, I just turned the TV off and sat in the dark for a few minutes wondering what just happened.

- BurghFinsFans

That movie was a deliberate attack on billions of childhoods.

"It Was Like My Body Shut Down To Protect Itself"

Jason Derulo Cat GIF by Cats MovieGiphy

Cats. Made it about 25 minutes before shutting it off

- aholecasserole2

Due to the pandemic, there is an increasingly non-zero chance that someone died, and CATS was the last movie they ever saw.

Memory is one of my favorite musical numbers.

My brain literally shut off during the new CATS and theater employees physically woke me up a half hour after the movie ended. I legit only remember a chonky cat eating roaches, the first part of Memory, and then being woken up.

I was like, "oh sh*t I got caught out. If the theater staff were robbers, I'd be dead."

It was like my body shut down to protect itself, and I woke up for a song I like, then my soul left my body. I think I saw a cat wearing a cat skin suit, and like.. took it off like a fur coat to reveal that they're.. also.. a cat..

I had zero interest of trying to see it again. I did thoroughly like the 90's CATS movie because it was set up and shot as an actual stage production, and seeing it attempted in an actual film theatrical way was a cursed adventure into devilry.

The Retcon

Crimes of Grindelwald. The incompetency behind the basic rules of storytelling in that movie is unbelievable.

- icerope1199

Agree. The retcon of "surprise! You're a Dumbledore!" Was so ridiculous.

- Jillette12

It's worse when you think about the fact that JK Rowling wrote the whole script herself.

The creator of this entire universe who claims to know everything about it should know how to not mess up the story. But she was the person responsible for ruining it lol.

And also what happened to all the beasts in this one? They literally stopped existing.

That's One Way To Kill A Witch

Blair Witch 2.

I don't remember much detail, but I do remember that at one point a pentagram appears on somebody's stomach and somebody else says "Maybe it's just a rash!"

- poopmobile9000

Lmao, this was going to be my answer.

Not only did it bizarrely deviate from the found footage style, but there were scenes that would jarringly jump from "filmed on professional cameras" to "this was filmed on a Nokia brick phone." The dialog was terrible. And I clearly remember one scene where the boom mic was visible for a stretch (not just a split second).

I vaguely recall that a large portion was literally filmed in a backyard, too. Still made money compared to its production costs, but the bait and switch by using the original's name pissed so many people off.

Blair Witch went from "this could be an entire franchise" to it disappearing from the film world for over a decade.

Deep Shame And Regret

2012: Doomsday. I have so much deep shame and regret that I wasted 90 minutes of my life watching that movie.

Not to be confused with the semi-eponymous action flick, this rhinoceros bowel movement has got to be the most atrocious movie in all existence.

It was made as part of some kind of "Faith Films" project. You know, it's the type of movie religious groups have commissioned to put a strong religious point across in a cringe-inducing manner. Now, I have nothing against that concept, but when you execute it in a manner so bad that I want to gouge my eyes out just typing about it, you know there's something wrong.

The premise is as simple as it is idiotic - Some archaeologists discover a cross in an ancient Aztec temple, concluding that the Aztecs knew about Christ all along. They also discover a calendar that foretells a great catastrophe will occur in 2012, and only the dismal acting skills of the merry band of mentally handicapped people assembled to make the movie can make it all go away.

There's a Latina pregnant woman / Virgin Mary clone that gives birth on an ancient pagan altar, thereby saving us from doom, the archaeologist's ex wife, played by a French actress who can't put two meaningful English sentences together, and, of course, the skeptic nurse who discovers God after a platitude-ridden talk in her car.

You have to see this movie to believe something like it can exist. How in the world this got past any sort of quality control and into world-wide distribution is beyond me. To this day I bring it up when talking with my brother from time to time since he was the one that suggested we watch it.

- Mind101

Wait ... There Are Two?!

An animated version of the titanic - at the end it said "and they all lived happily ever after"

- lordexplosinMurder

I've heard of this. There's multiple movies. The "happily ever after" element is a complete disrespect to all of those who lost their lives or were affected by a very real tragedy.

- gizmostripe

So are you talking the one with the rapping dog, or the one with the talking octopus? Because after someone made a terrible animated ripoff of the James Cameron flick, somebody thought it would be a good idea to ripoff the ripoff.

- Stoly23

The ship still sank, but they made it so everybody survived. Although I'm not sure which of the two Titanic animated movies OP is talking about: the one with the rapping dog, or the one with the whaler-talking sharks conspiracy and the puppy-faced octopus.

People Reveal The Weirdest Thing About Themselves

Reddit user Isitjustmedownhere asked: 'Give an example; how weird are you really?'

Let's get one thing straight: no one is normal. We're all weird in our own ways, and that is actually normal.

Of course, that doesn't mean we don't all have that one strange trait or quirk that outweighs all the other weirdness we possess.

For me, it's the fact that I'm almost 30 years old, and I still have an imaginary friend. Her name is Sarah, she has red hair and green eyes, and I strongly believe that, since I lived in India when I created her and there were no actual people with red hair around, she was based on Daphne Blake from Scooby-Doo.

I also didn't know the name Sarah when I created her, so that came later. I know she's not really there, hence the term 'imaginary friend,' but she's kind of always been around. We all have conversations in our heads; mine are with Sarah. She keeps me on task and efficient.

My mom thinks I'm crazy that I still have an imaginary friend, and writing about her like this makes me think I may actually be crazy, but I don't mind. As I said, we're all weird, and we all have that one trait that outweighs all the other weirdness.

Redditors know this all too well and are eager to share their weird traits.

It all started when Redditor Isitjustmedownhere asked:

"Give an example; how weird are you really?"

Monsters Under My Bed

Can You See Why?

"I bought one of those super-powerful fans to dry a basement carpet. Afterwards, I realized that it can point straight up and that it would be amazing to use on myself post-shower. Now I squeegee my body with my hands, step out of the shower and get blasted by a wide jet of room-temp air. I barely use my towel at all. Wife thinks I'm weird."

– KingBooRadley


"In 1990 when I was 8 years old and bored on a field trip, I saw a black Oldsmobile Cutlass driving down the street on a hot day to where you could see that mirage like distortion from the heat on the road. I took a “snapshot” by blinking my eyes and told myself “I wonder how long I can remember this image” ….well."

– AquamarineCheetah

"Even before smartphones, I always take "snapshots" by blinking my eyes hoping I'll remember every detail so I can draw it when I get home. Unfortunately, I may have taken so much snapshots that I can no longer remember every detail I want to draw."

"Makes me think my "memory is full.""

"How f**king big was this lunch when you started?"

Not Sure Who Was Weirder

"Had a line cook that worked for us for 6 months never said much. My sous chef once told him with no context, "Baw wit da baw daw bang daw bang diggy diggy." The guy smiled, left, and never came back."

– Frostygrunt


"I pace around my house for hours listening to music imagining that I have done all the things I simply lack the brain capacity to do, or in some really bizarre scenarios, I can really get immersed in these imaginations sometimes I don't know if this is some form of schizophrenia or what."

– RandomSharinganUser

"I do the same exact thing, sometimes for hours. When I was young it would be a ridiculous amount of time and many years later it’s sort of trickled off into almost nothing (almost). It’s weird but I just thought it’s how my brain processes sh*t."

– Kolkeia

If Only

"Even as an adult I still think that if you are in a car that goes over a cliff; and right as you are about to hit the ground if you jump up you can avoid the damage and will land safely. I know I'm wrong. You shut up. I'm not crying."

– ShotCompetition2593

Pet Food

"As a kid I would snack on my dog's Milkbones."

– drummerskillit

"Haha, I have a clear memory of myself doing this as well. I was around 3 y/o. Needless to say no one was supervising me."

– Isitjustmedownhere

"When I was younger, one of my responsibilities was to feed the pet fish every day. Instead, I would hide under the futon in the spare bedroom and eat the fish food."

My Favorite Subject

"I'm autistic and have always had a thing for insects. My neurotypical best friend and I used to hang out at this local bar to talk to girls, back in the late 90s. One time he claimed that my tendency to circle conversations back to insects was hurting my game. The next time we went to that bar (with a few other friends), he turned and said sternly "No talking about bugs. Or space, or statistics or other bullsh*t but mainly no bugs." I felt like he was losing his mind over nothing."

"It was summer, the bar had its windows open. Our group hit it off with a group of young ladies, We were all chatting and having a good time. I was talking to one of these girls, my buddy was behind her facing away from me talking to a few other people."

"A cloudless sulphur flies in and lands on little thing that holds coasters."

"Cue Jordan Peele sweating gif."

"The girl notices my tension, and asks if I am looking at the leaf. "Actually, that's a lepidoptera called..." I looked at the back of my friend's head, he wasn't looking, "I mean a butterfly..." I poked it and it spread its wings the girl says "oh that's a BUG?!" and I still remember my friend turning around slowly to look at me with chastisement. The ONE thing he told me not to do."

"I was 21, and was completely not aware that I already had a rep for being an oddball. It got worse from there."

– Phormicidae

*Teeth Chatter*

"I bite ice cream sometimes."


"That's how I am with popsicles. My wife shudders every single time."


Never Speak Of This

"I put ice in my milk."


"You should keep that kind of thing to yourself. Even when asked."

"There's some disturbing sh*t in this thread, but this one takes the cake."

Evened Up

"Whenever I say a word and feel like I used a half of my mouth more than the other half, I have to even it out by saying the word again using the other half of my mouth more. If I don't do it correctly, that can go on forever until I feel it's ok."

"I do it silently so I don't creep people out."

– LesPaltaX

"That sounds like a symptom of OCD (I have it myself). Some people with OCD feel like certain actions have to be balanced (like counting or making sure physical movements are even). You should find a therapist who specializes in OCD, because they can help you."

– MoonlightKayla

I totally have the same need for things to be balanced! Guess I'm weird and a little OCD!

Experiencing death is a fascinating and frightening idea.

Who doesn't want to know what is waiting for us on the other side?

But so many of us want to know and then come back and live a little longer.

It would be so great to be sure there is something else.

But the whole dying part is not that great, so we'll have to rely on other people's accounts.

Redditor AlaskaStiletto wanted to hear from everyone who has returned to life, so they asked:

"Redditors who have 'died' and come back to life, what did you see?"


Happy Good Vibes GIF by Major League SoccerGiphy

"My dad's heart stopped when he had a heart attack and he had to be brought back to life. He kept the paper copy of the heart monitor which shows he flatlined. He said he felt an overwhelming sensation of peace, like nothing he had felt before."



"I had surgical complications in 2010 that caused a great deal of blood loss. As a result, I had extremely low blood pressure and could barely stay awake. I remember feeling like I was surrounded by loved ones who had passed. They were in a circle around me and I knew they were there to guide me onwards. I told them I was not ready to go because my kids needed me and I came back."

"My nurse later said she was afraid she’d find me dead every time she came into the room."

"It took months, and blood transfusions, but I recovered."


Take Me Back

"Overwhelming peace and happiness. A bright airy and floating feeling. I live a very stressful life. Imagine finding out the person you have had a crush on reveals they have the same feelings for you and then you win the lotto later that day - that was the feeling I had."

"I never feared death afterward and am relieved when I hear of people dying after suffering from an illness."



The Light Minnie GIF by (G)I-DLEGiphy

"I had a heart surgery with near-death experience, for me at least (well the possibility that those effects are caused by morphine is also there) I just saw black and nothing else but it was warm and I had such inner peace, its weird as I sometimes still think about it and wish this feeling of being so light and free again."


This is why I hate surgery.

You just never know.



"More of a near-death experience. I was electrocuted. I felt like I was in a deep hole looking straight up in the sky. My life flashed before me. Felt sad for my family, but I had a deep sense of peace."



"Nursing in the ICU, we’ve had people try to die on us many times during the years, some successfully. One guy stood out to me. His heart stopped. We called a code, are working on him, and suddenly he comes to. We hadn’t vented him yet, so he was able to talk, and he started screaming, 'Don’t let them take me, don’t let them take me, they are coming,' he was scared and yelling."

"Then he yelled a little more, as we tried to calm him down, he screamed, 'No, No,' and gestured towards the end of the bed, and died again. We didn’t get him back. It was seriously creepy. We called his son to tell him the news, and the son said basically, 'Good, he was an SOB.'”



"My sister died and said it was extremely peaceful. She said it was very loud like a train station and lots of talking and she was stuck in this area that was like a curtain with lots of beautiful colors (colors that you don’t see in real life according to her) a man told her 'He was sorry, but she had to go back as it wasn’t her time.'"


"I had a really similar experience except I was in an endless garden with flowers that were colors I had never seen before. It was quiet and peaceful and a woman in a dress looked at me, shook her head, and just said 'Not yet.' As I was coming back, it was extremely loud, like everyone in the world was trying to talk all at once. It was all very disorienting but it changed my perspective on life!"


The Fog

"I was in a gray fog with a girl who looked a lot like a young version of my grandmother (who was still alive) but dressed like a pioneer in the 1800s she didn't say anything but kept pulling me towards an opening in the wall. I kept refusing to go because I was so tired."

"I finally got tired of her nagging and went and that's when I came to. I had bled out during a c-section and my heart could not beat without blood. They had to deliver the baby and sew up the bleeders. refill me with blood before they could restart my heart so, like, at least 12 minutes gone."


Through the Walls

"My spouse was dead for a couple of minutes one miserable night. She maintains that she saw nothing, but only heard people talking about her like through a wall. The only thing she remembers for absolute certain was begging an ER nurse that she didn't want to die."

"She's quite alive and well today."


Well let's all be happy to be alive.

It seems to be all we have.

Man's waist line
Santhosh Vaithiyanathan/Unsplash

Trying to lose weight is a struggle understood by many people regardless of size.

The goal of reaching a healthy weight may seem unattainable, but with diet and exercise, it can pay off through persistence and discipline.

Seeing the pounds gradually drop off can also be a great motivator and incentivize people to stay the course.

Those who've achieved their respective weight goals shared their experiences when Redditor apprenti8455 asked:

"People who lost a lot of weight, what surprises you the most now?"

Redditors didn't see these coming.

Shiver Me Timbers

"I’m always cold now!"

– Telrom_1

"I had a coworker lose over 130 pounds five or six years ago. I’ve never seen him without a jacket on since."

– r7ndom

"140 lbs lost here starting just before COVID, I feel like that little old lady that's always cold, damn this top comment was on point lmao."

– mr_remy

Drawing Concern

"I lost 100 pounds over a year and a half but since I’m old(70’s) it seems few people comment on it because (I think) they think I’m wasting away from some terminal illness."

– dee-fondy

"Congrats on the weight loss! It’s honestly a real accomplishment 🙂"

"Working in oncology, I can never comment on someone’s weight loss unless I specifically know it was on purpose, regardless of their age. I think it kind of ruffles feathers at times, but like I don’t want to congratulate someone for having cancer or something. It’s a weird place to be in."

– LizardofDeath

Unleashing Insults

"I remember when I lost the first big chunk of weight (around 50 lbs) it was like it gave some people license to talk sh*t about the 'old' me. Old coworkers, friends, made a lot of not just negative, but harsh comments about what I used to look like. One person I met after the big loss saw a picture of me prior and said, 'Wow, we wouldn’t even be friends!'”

"It wasn’t extremely common, but I was a little alarmed by some of the attention. My weight has been up and down since then, but every time I gain a little it gets me a little down thinking about those things people said."

– alanamablamaspama

Not Everything Goes After Losing Weight

"The loose skin is a bit unexpected."

– KeltarCentauri

"I haven’t experienced it myself, but surgery to remove skin takes a long time to recover. Longer than bariatric surgery and usually isn’t covered by insurance unless you have both."

– KatMagic1977

"It definitely does take a long time to recover. My Dad dropped a little over 200 pounds a few years back and decided to go through with skin removal surgery to deal with the excess. His procedure was extensive, as in he had skin taken from just about every part of his body excluding his head, and he went through hell for weeks in recovery, and he was bedridden for a lot of it."

– Jaew96

These Redditors shared their pleasantly surprising experiences.


"I can buy clothes in any store I want."

– WaySavvyD

"When I lost weight I was dying to go find cute, smaller clothes and I really struggled. As someone who had always been restricted to one or two stores that catered to plus-sized clothing, a full mall of shops with items in my size was daunting. Too many options and not enough knowledge of brands that were good vs cheap. I usually went home pretty frustrated."

– ganache98012

No More Symptoms

"Lost about 80 pounds in the past year and a half, biggest thing that I’ve noticed that I haven’t seen mentioned on here yet is my acid reflux and heartburn are basically gone. I used to be popping tums every couple hours and now they just sit in the medicine cabinet collecting dust."

– colleennicole93

Expanding Capabilities

"I'm all for not judging people by their appearance and I recognise that there are unhealthy, unachievable beauty standards, but one thing that is undeniable is that I can just do stuff now. Just stamina and flexibility alone are worth it, appearance is tertiary at best."

– Ramblonius

People Change Their Tune

"How much nicer people are to you."

"My feet weren't 'wide' they were 'fat.'"

– LiZZygsu

"Have to agree. Lost 220 lbs, people make eye contact and hold open doors and stuff"

"And on the foot thing, I also lost a full shoe size numerically and also wear regular width now 😅"

– awholedamngarden

It's gonna take some getting used to.

Bones Everywhere

"Having bones. Collarbones, wrist bones, knee bones, hip bones, ribs. I have so many bones sticking out everywhere and it’s weird as hell."

– Princess-Pancake-97

"I noticed the shadow of my ribs the other day and it threw me, there’s a whole skeleton in here."

– bekastrange

Knee Pillow

"Right?! And they’re so … pointy! Now I get why people sleep with pillows between their legs - the knee bones laying on top of each other (side sleeper here) is weird and jarring."

– snic2030

"I lost only 40 pounds within the last year or so. I’m struggling to relate to most of these comments as I feel like I just 'slimmed down' rather than dropped a ton. But wow, the pillow between the knees at night. YES! I can relate to this. I think a lot of my weight was in my thighs. I never needed to do this up until recently."

– Strongbad23

More Mobility

"I’ve lost 100 lbs since 2020. It’s a collection of little things that surprise me. For at least 10 years I couldn’t put on socks, or tie my shoes. I couldn’t bend over and pick something up. I couldn’t climb a ladder to fix something. Simple things like that I can do now that fascinate me."

"Edit: Some additional little things are sitting in a chair with arms, sitting in a booth in a restaurant, being able to shop in a normal store AND not needing to buy the biggest size there, being able to easily wipe my butt, and looking down and being able to see my penis."

– dma1965

People making significant changes, whether for mental or physical health, can surely find a newfound perspective on life.

But they can also discover different issues they never saw coming.

That being said, overcoming any challenge in life is laudable, especially if it leads to gaining confidence and ditching insecurities.
