Ever been watching a movie, probably a bad one, and you're like, okay, this is just barely good enough to keep me from changing the channel.  Then along comes some scene and it's "Oh good grief, enough of this."?

One I remember is Warbirds, a Sci-Fi Channel original.  We've got a Women's Airforce Service Pilots crew ferrying a bomber to an island in the Pacific.  Seeing as the writer was uncreative and obvious, this is of course the plane carrying the atomic bomb.  When our female lead finds out about the A-bomb, she freaks.  "Thousands could be killed!"  she exclaims.  Something like 300,000 Germans had been killed by Allied bombing raids up to this point in the war, but I guess that never occurred to her.  People dying is only bad if it's done with a nuke apparently.  That was just enough for me, sticking some 2008 political correctness into a movie that's supposedly taking place in 1945.  Goodbye, channel change time.

What are your picks?

The first scenes that come to mind are not ones that caused me to leave in the middle of the movie, but only because they came at the end. What really ruins a movie for me is when scenes are awkwardly included to keep an otherwise watchable movie within the boundaries of Hollywood convention.

The ending of AI: Artificial Intelligence that just feels like a happier ending was tacked on. Happier for the robot anyway; humanity seems to be dead and gone. It's been argued on here before, but I still think ending under the water would have been far more poignant, and kept the movie to a better length. If it had been made in the 70s, it would have ended there.

Same problem with Pearl Harbor. Really, that movie was ruined by all the scenes that had nothing to do with the bombing of Pearl Harbour (crappy love triangle), but that's beside the point. The real killer there was tacking the entire Doolittle raid onto this already-too-long movie so it could finish with the USA fighting back. We know they won the war, leave it at that. Tora! Tora! Tora! did it better by just having Mako suggest at the end that the sneak attack was probably not the best idea. As if adding a whole other story wasn't bad enough, they fixed the love triangle by killing off one of the guys, leaving his buddy to get the girl and raise his son. Seriously, that's a win-win situation? It seems to be presented that way. Didn't care for the movie as a whole, but the ending put me firmly in the "hated it" category.

It was the first death scene in Frogs, with Michael somehow dieing at the spider's hands for some unknown reason.  From that point on, I knew this movie was really going to suck.

Also,  in Mortal Kombat 2 with Raiden trying to explain Shao Khan's plans to everyone.  I got lost, didn't understand what was going on, and it took me out of whatever enjoyment could have been salvaged from the movie.

Any scene with the Batmobile in Batman Begins.  Every element of that movie sucked plenty hard but I hated, hated, hated the Batmobile most of all.  (When it got blown up in TDK, I stood up in the theater and cheered.)

The scene in the 2005 King Kong when Hayes tries to take Jimmy's rifle and GOES ON A LITTLE SPIEL ABOUT GUN SAFETY.  A f**king GUN SAFETY message in King Kong!  If I hadn't ridden with someone to the theater, I definitely would have walked out and gone home at that point.

When the samurai hordes showed up in The People that Time Forgot.  It had just been a standard-issue crappy movie up to then but that just took me out of it completely.

The endless scene of the fly crawling around on Jack Elam's face in Once Upon a Time in the West.  It made me long for the taught pacing and thrilling action of, say, 2001.

You just described every Sci-Fi original movie ever made.   Wink

Actually I started to watch their most recent mini-series, something of Bloodsteel, and I think I bailed on that barely 40 minutes into it.  But that was a combination of the lead actor's (the guy from J.A.G.) accent coming and going and just plain derivitive awfulness.

But the gold star of movie ruining scenes has to go to the opening scene from Black Candles (possibly NSFW) was pretty jarring, mostly because it's so poorly edited followed by the first dream sequence.  The movie only got worse from there.  I suppose you could argue that when a movie starts this bad you only have yourself to blame for keeping watching such a train wreck.  And then there was the goat.  Buggedout

However the movie that really got irksome was Alexander.  Still haven't watched that all the way through to the end.  And I have TWO versions of it on DVD!

And, if I'm going to rip on Alexander, I have to mention that 300, despite being based on a graphic novel, was epic level bad.  Every criticism that's leveled at this movie gets countered by it's fans with "but it's based on a graphic novel", especially where complaints about it's total lack of hisoricity are concerned.  I'll leave it at that.

I also agree with akiratubo that the "samurai hordes" from The People that Time Forgot seemed totally out of place.

In AVP when the guy says Arnies "You UGLY S.O.B." , , at that point I knew the film had nothing in it but the momentum set by the two movies it took from.

Snakes on a Plane: When the chick gets bit on the boob and the guy gets bit on the weemer. Was that part written by 6th grade boys?

Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny: The part where the idiot is stoned on mushrooms and they glorify him doing something that in the real world would result in him dying 10x over. God I hate stoner movies.

The tripout sequence in Redneck Zombies which just goes on-and-on and is made with crappy in-camera effects...  I think if I hadn't been watching it with a friend, I would have turned it off.

Don't forget his second death in Turtles 2!  That was even lamer!

I loved the movie and then this travesty takes place.

That movie has the ONLY boob scene I avoid. The one where the idiots are watching porn. It's just weird and nasty. .

I was loving the Matrix right until Trinity wakes Neo up with a kiss.  Probably one of the top 5 scenes I call "bullsh*t" on with feverish hatred.

Star Wars, Episode 1 - The minute Jar Jar arrived.
Star Wars, Episode 2 - The minute Anakin and Padme head to Naboo.
Star Wars, Episode 3 - The minute Anakin and Padme had any dialog.
Star Wars, Episode 6 - The minute the Ewoks arrived. 

Theres more, I just have to brainstorm.

That film lost me when they killed Johnny Cage...or perhaps I when I noticed 3 of the 4 main players didn't come back for the sequel.
