    Sucker Punch was unique, had a great story, covered some deep philosophical territory and had eye candy for the icing.

    The last TWO (recent) Star Wars movies, I've left the theatre. It's not because I'm some hardcore Star Wars fan or anything like that. I just GENERALLY despised the writing, the lack of any real "new" story, and its predictability. /shrug The worst part is, I genuinely enjoy cinema, and seeing new movies. #RIPCovid

    Never walked out on a movie.

    I only go and watch stuff i'm eager to watch anyway. Only exception was a crazy summer in my early twenties where me and some friends bought a monthly subscription to a cinema plex for like €12~ and went daily, seeing every movie available, but even with a couple of horrible movies, never walked out.

    I did fall asleep once, though.

    Never walked out, but I slept through big chunks of the new Lion King remake.

    I've walked out on one movie but I honestly don't remember the name of it because it was that bad. Its been a good year and some since I last been to a theater but I'm not walking out on $10-15 (also why I don't go to the theater for just any old movie).

    Pearl Harbour. Absolute shitshow of a film, the manager clocked my friend and I walking out long before the film was done and offered us tickets to a largely empty viewing of A Knights Tale that was on its final week instead.

    A vastly superior film.

    That description literally doesn't have any relationship to Aliens. Sucker Punch was about as deep a puddle, featured a story that sucked ass, and was filled with "eye candy" only if you're very easily impressed by CGI. Nice job being completely wrong about both movies though?

    Did not walk out.

    But took a very long bathroom break after the Last Jedi scene of a Star Destroyer that actually was a iron.
    At that point i known that this movie was just trying to be spaceball and just make jokes instead of being a Star Wars sequel.

    Yeah I don't believe that was "Aliens" either. I mean the slowest part of the movie was the first 15mins or so.

    ...what?

    I have no idea what that means, but seems strange to get upset about the shape of an Imperial ship of all things.

    Never walked out of one, but a few "almosts" or notable ones:

    The Blair Witch Project almost made me sick, but alcohol earlier that night may have been indirectly involved. It was a LOT of screen shaking though.
    The Grinch (2018), was the first time I was checking my watch during a movie. Of course I was there because kids, but I'm usually entertained by kids movies, more or less.
    I kind of remember Gattaca being disappointing, but iirc it was a date, and not a good date movie to say the least.
    Oh and Sin City gave me a pretty good headache. It was good, just kind of beat me up.

    Needless to say, tone was one of the myriad issues of that film.

    That should tell you enough of his perception abilities, be it art or otheerwise.

    Oh. I thought he was talking about an actual ship...and not just a comedic shot of an iron.

    People were really expecting the FF movie to be more along the lines of FF9 or 10. There were no swords or magic. They could have basically called this movie anything else and it would have done better.

    Spider-Man 3. When Peter went Emo i walked out, it was just that bad.

    I also had to briefly walk out of "Bringing Out the Dead" because the way it was shot gave me motion sickness and i didn't want to throw up.

    I mean you would get a refund so I guess it doesn't really matter in the end. I think we walked out of a movie once when we were teenagers me and my friends because it was too packed and we just walked right into another theater and sat down and watched whatever was playing.

    I also never walked out of a movie. I paid for it, so even if it sucks big time, I need to watch it till the very end. So later on I can destroy it properly when discussing it with my friends

    But there were movies so dissapointing that made me stop going to theater in general.

    First one, Geostorm. I took my wife for it (it was a surprise) since she loves catastrophic genre. And all the special effects for a catastrophical events were scarce and previously displayed in the trailer. That ruined my surprise for her and pissed me off. To the point where the next movie I went to a theater to see was Joker, 2 years later. That one restored my faith in Hollywood. But 2 months later I saw The Rise of Skywalker and that was my final farewell to theaters.

    God Sucker Punch was terrible, I didn't see it in theaters so I didn't have to walk out, just turn it off.

    Most of the time I'm seeing something crappy in the theater its because somebody dragged me to see it so I can't just leave. Several movies that have been mentioned here I had to sit through, no idea how I made it to the end of Ultraviolet that was painful from the get go.

    I saw sucker punch at home and really liked the fantasy action scenes, but the rest didn't really do much for me. What I can't understand is that people actually argue that it is philosophical somehow, every message it tries to convey is so on the nose and obvious that it's obnoxious. Don't think I'd ever pay to see it in a cinema.

    Don't think I've ever walked out of a movie, as I usually wait on reliable reviews before going, and if I ever did, the movie was so bad that I can't even remember it.
