I enjoyed the chacha.com article, "Which Movies Have the Most Terrible Endings?" by Allison Weaver.
Some I agreed with, some I hadn't seen, and some left me going, "WHAT?"
Return of the Jedi was a bad ending? Actually, there is an explanation, "When I say Return of the Jedi, I'm referring to the re-released version of the film, in which George Lucas felt the need to edit the bejesus out of the movie until the whole thing was a laughable mess." Ah, got it.
Other offerings include Castaway, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and Signs. I liked the ending of Signs! A lot.
Also, Weaver listed as a bad ending. Okay, now they're messin' with Hitch! What's wrong here? The Birds was great, and the ending was dark, heavy and wonderfully open. It's how the Mist should have ended.
Titanic. Uh, I would love to see an alternate ending to that one. The boat sails into New York harbor?
And then there is THE MIST. I hate this ending. So, even if I disagree with every other entry in this article, I think this is right on.
Did anyone actually enjoy the ending of 'The Mist'? I don't believe it's possible. Who could be happy after watching the main character give up, shoot his own son, and then head off in search of the perfect way to kill himself?
Honestly, though, even if it ended there, it would've been more acceptable than what really happened. Instead, he discovered that he and the rest of his family and friends could have survived the entire ordeal if they had just waited a few moments longer. Oops! Tough break.What movie endings do you hate?
