    Good Movies With Endings That Sucked

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by ValianceInEnd, May 11, 2008.

    I was just watching No Country for Old Men last night which is a great and really exciting movie. Unfortunately the ending was totally anti-climatic and killed any chance of making it a superb film. Much like Alien 3 killing the wonderful ending of Aliens.

    So, what are good movies that you've liked that just totally left you in the dust when it came to endings?

    Blood: The Last Vampire disappointed me - I thought it ended way too abruptly, and I was really enjoying it until then!

    That's about the only one I can think of at the moment - most of the films that I thought had bad endings were bad all the way through. ;)

    I agree. Everyone said "No Country For Old Men" was a great movie. And I thought so too as I watched it. Then comes the ending and...total disappointment.

    28 Days Later...I loved it, but I hated the way the movie ended. Disappointed!

    Hmm, I really loved No Country For Old Men. I thought the ending was perfect.

    One movie ending that really got to me was the end of the most recent Bourne movie. I walked out of there feeling unsatisfied.

    The ending of No Country For Old Men was full of symbolism, and therefore was excellent.

    I liked the ending. It ended on a note of defeat--the man realized that there was nothing he could do to make the world a better place. It was probably the most symbolic ending I've ever seen in a movie.

    Memento was kind of a buzz kill. I don't like movies that make me hate all of the characters involved, let alone in one fell swoop.

    I Am Legend, brilliant movie but the ending left me feeling unsettled. Also the first LOTR. Obviously we knew it was going to be continued in the second and third, but it just ended so abruptly. Can't think of any others right now.

    I totally agree with you for I Am Legend. It was just to convenient.

    I agree. The book had a great ending, but the movie's ending was disappointing.

    The ending of I Am Legend (book) was awesome, but most of the other people I know who have read it thought it was awful.

    The Painted Veil. Ending (last two minutes or so) totally disappointed me, and otherwise it's been my favorite movie in... well, several years. I should really read the book.

    I watched that movie two days ago now and I was definitely disappointed with the ending. It was piss poor. She got away too easily and they really could have done far more with the ending to tie the movie to an end. Heck, the spongebob squarepants movie had a better ending and I hated that movie.....kids love it though :p

    Wow, you must be pretty good at movies then to have guessed that. I totally didn't get it right away. haha


    And wowza Torana, that's the harshest thing I've ever heard about that movie, it was amazing. Seriously, Will Smith might be crying right now... :p

    heh I was being honest :) It really was a piss poor ending. I mean come on, like it would be that easy for a bimbo to get away from a mob of freakish mutant humans and their mutant pets without them going after her.....as if!

    I agree. I Am Legend did have a bad ending. If I was Will Smith, I would have chucked the grenade through the gaping hole that one dude made in the glass. I wouldn't have run after him with it in my hand. Chuck it, duck and run.

    Other than the ending though, great movie.

    Beat Takeshi's take on Zatoichi had an ending that utterly confounded me... O_O

    It wasn't the worst ending ever, but a samurai movie ending with all the characters tap dancing and such... Strange. :)

    I like the ending of "No Country for Old Men," thought it was perfect and completely out of the loop. I like out of the loop movies like that.

    Thought "War of the Worlds" had a terrible ending, it was just like... let's run and, oh, never mind, we don't have to anymore.
