Tell Us Now: 15 Ways to Ruin A Movie Instantly
We are sick of only creating critically acclaimed and commercially successful movies, so we asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What’s one thing that can ruin a movie instantly?” The top-rated complaints literally made the movie hard to watch and hear: sound mixing and visual issues. Our favorite was a shoe-horned relationship introduction. Who genuinely refers to their sibling by their relationship? We’ve never once said out loud, “Sister, call me back!” And, look, we can empathize with lazy writing (even though we would never) but we can’t condone it in a multi-million-dollar movie.
