As it turns out, some of our favorite movies ignore dark moments perpetrated by our heroes. The bleakest movie endings are the ones that gloss over the protagonists' evil actions. 

Before his descent, Anakin slays innocent younglings in an attempt to take over the Jedi Temple. Tony Stark made Ultron in the first place, sparking the chaos and destruction that later unfolds. Even Dumbledore abandoned Harry, leaving him to be tortured for most of his childhood by the Dursleys.
