Everybody loves a happy ending, but the popularity of the teddy bear-like Ewoks became too much of a good thing when we’re forced to watch them dance their furry butts off for just a tad too long during the celebrations following the collapse of the Empire.

4. “The Dark Knight Rises” (2012)

These movies are epic, but there’s just one thing that left a bad taste in our mouth: the ending. Somehow Bruce miraculously recovers from a broken back with virtually no modern medicine, and then he manages to sneak all the way from Asia into a quarantined Gotham.

Next, we find out that Bane wasn’t even the real bad guy. Bane is one of the most notorious criminals and formidable enemies in Batman canon, and yet this movie decided to turn him into a puppet. A puppet with a silly voice, at that.

Lastly, the chances that Alfred sees the happy couple Bruce and Selina in Italy are astronomical, not to mention Blake happening upon the Batcave and leaving us wanting another sequel (which we’re not getting, I guess). In general, just a terrible third act to an otherwise good movie and great franchise.

5. “Titanic” (1997)

There’s no arguing that this is a great movie, but let’s just address the scene I think really bothers all of us. And no — I’m not talking about Jack dying and drifting away into the icy waters of the North Atlantic. I’m not even talking about the ambiguous scene where we’re left to wonder whether or not the elderly Rose is dead or just asleep in bed.
I’m talking about when Rose sneaks out of her cabin on the salvage ship in the middle of night and tosses the Heart of the Ocean—a priceless jewel—into the sea. Don’t you have grandkids you want to set up trust funds for? What. A. Waste.
