This is in the vein of WTF moments and scenes that ruined the whole film. We all enjoy scares and violence and surprises, but I'm sure we all know of scenes in movies that just went too far without furthering the plot in any way that justified them. Could be a good movie or a bad one, could be gratuitous violence or some ill-advised nudity or just about anything.

I've got a few good examples, but let's stick to one at a time. In Alexander, there are lots of things I probably could have done without seeing, but the one that stands out was a moment in one of the later battles, when an elephant gets its trunk sliced off by a sword. I know it was only CGI, and I have no doubt stuff like that really happened to elephants in battle, but it just seemed like an unnecessary act of cruelty. Sure, people are getting hacked to pieces, but they're combatants. The animals don't know any better. What's more interesting is that it doesn't bother me to see elephants shot down with bows in movies. It's just the thought of an elephant unable to eat or drink or groom itself, assuming it doesn't bleed to death. I didn't need to see that.

So, what other examples are there?

Other than the rest of the American version of "The Ring" (yes, I'm one of the haters), the whole horse going over the side of the ferry was uncalled for. It could have been implied and been just as effective. But they had to trot out (yup, pun intended) the CGI and show you EVERY FREAKIN' SECOND of the horse's miserable death. I'm stunned they didn't show it getting yanked into the props and being chunked up. But, that's the American film creedo: If a drop is good, an oil tanker load will be better.

The real cockfights in the otherwise excellent Monte Hellman/Warren Oates COCKFIGHTER.

Also, about 95% of PINK FLAMINGOES.

AVP Requiem was, for me, not a terribly enjoyable movie. Found most of it dull and rather nonsensical, but inoffensive. Then they just had to put the aliens in the maternity ward. I really could have done without seeing that.

Well, it's hard to go into PINK FLAMINGOES expecting to be uplifted. But I could have lived without the chicken death. That for me was, believe it or not, the most truly disgusting thing in the movie and one thing I wished wasn't there above all else.

Not that I can think of any reason to see this movie again. But I felt I needed to see it once.

Any of the animal killing scenes in Cannibal Holocaust.

Great movie, but the animal death scenes were completely unnecessary.  Especially the turtle scene, which was absolutely disgusting.
Those animals were actually killed during the making of that film.

I have to agree to scenes of violence against animals, particularly if they are supposed to be 'funny'.

I could also do without any more scenes of guys being comically grossed out by the thought of someone being gay. When I see this stuff, I always assume somebody responsible (writer, director, etc.) can be found late at night lurking around your friendly neighborhood reststop tapping footsies with politicians.

The blue penis in the Watchmen. Could have have found someway to cover that up.

I could have done without seeing part of the Lap Dance in Cool World or seeing the woman's skin get ripped off in Silent Hill.  Those aren't easy images to push out your brain.

Great movie, but the animal death scenes were completely unnecessary.  Especially the turtle scene, which was absolutely disgusting.
Those animals were actually killed during the making of that film.

What's most incredible about those scenes is that unlike somewhat similar scenes I've seen in a couple of other films, the sequences in Cannibal Holocaust are shot in a way (especially the turtle) where it is deliberately meant to be both as disgusting as possible and actually sad (just listen to the score).  How are we supposed to take that?  It's like irony wrapped in hypocrisy in-between two slices of outrage.

I'd agree the scenes weren't needed, particularly not to kill actual animals, but the scene with the turtle is at least used for foreshadowing. 

I'd say the ripoff animal killing sequences in Cannibal Ferox are even less important to the narrative than those in Cannibal Holocaust.

I believe you.  It was the most disgusting thing to me, too.  And if you listen to the director's commentary, it's the one thing Waters regretted putting in the movie.
