I hadn't really thought of this until recently. Because, yes, I am a recovering Star Wars geek. And, yes, I am one of those people that absolutely despised The Last Jedi.
I'm not going to go into it because everyone else already has voiced the same feeling about how much I hated it. But I will say that immediately following that film I invested half of my 401(k) in a defense based mutual fund just to spite Rose and Finn's excellent adventure. And that has paid off.
To me though, Star Wars killed all SciFi/Fantasy for me. I had to examine what it was I hated about the movie and the realize what an absolute loser I was for getting so excited about it. All the speculation and expanded universe theories I learned all came crashing down on me forcing me to wake up and realize what a waste of time it all was.
And then I realized it has happened before. Therefore, here are the movies that ruined entire genres for me.

|Above and below. DC has ruined all the hard work Marvel did for me.|
Finally, this is what a Genre Killer really does. SciFi/Fantasy doesn't taste good anymore. A month after The Last Jedi I finally watched the most recent Star Trek. Meh. I couldn't look at Capt Kirk the same way. Because Star Wars had already shown me what a pathetic waste of time it all was.
Thank you Warner Brothers and Lucas Films. I've been a man for a long time. But you have now matured my taste in entertainment.
For your entertainment, I have provided the following hour of dwarfs singing:
