    Borrowing from Mk's thread, what's your favorite movie ending? I absolutely loved the climax of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    I especially like the music when Tuco searches the graveyard.

    My favorite movie "ending" (it wasn't quite the very last scene) was in The Sixth Sense. I saw it on Opening Day before it caught fire, and was COMPLETELY fooled by the whole movie till that wedding band rolled off her hand towards the end of the movie. I love a movie that can do that to me.

    On a separate note, the most frustrating movie ending was The Swimming Pool. At the end of the movie, I wasn't sure if I wanted to scream, gasp, cry, or yell profanities at the ending. Someone in the theater even yelled "Can someone tell me what the hell did that ending meant?!" People were discussing what it was even outside the theater! I had to chimed in that Roger Ebert had his interpretation of the ending in his review on his website. Till this very day, I still get "mad" at the ending in the sense that one doesn't have a "unique solution" to the movie.

    Please don't remind me of that movie. Even before I saw the film someone told me the plot (wasn't intentional). :cry:

    My favourite movie ending was that of "Titanic", the part when the ship sinks :biggrin:. I have only seen the last part of the movie because I just hate the overall plot of the movie.

    Favorite ending, The Royal Tenenbaums, I've never been so glad to see the end of a movie in my entire life! :yuck:

    Seriously, I like these endings: Casablanca (round up the usual suspects), Jaws (smile you S.O.A.B.), Seabiscuit (The comeback race shown would have been the equivelent of a forty year old athelete breaking a track record), MASH ("Did Hawkeye steal that Jeep?" "No it's the one he came in."), Allistar Sims Christmas Carol ("I don't deserve to be so happy," *flips his quill in the air* "but I can't help it."), Arsenic and Old Lace (I'm not a Brewster, I'm the son of a seacook!),

    My favourate ending was to Jackie Chan's The Medallion.

    The best thing about it was that it was less than an hour into the movie. At least it was for me...

    It is the only movie in my list of movie ratings that did not get a rating at all, since I did not finish watching it.

    You never saw Vanilla Sky? When I saw it, you would have thought someone opened a jar of lightning bugs, there were so many people checking their watch.

    Best ending credits were for Rainman (the snapshots).

    My favourite movie ending is from "The Life Of David Gale".
    Yet another good film that doesn't suffer from corny good beats evil endings is "Arlington Road"

    Funny you mention that one. I was thinking of mentioning it too.

    The ending did its trick on me, the moment of realization for the character happened exactly in parallel with my own moment of horrified realization, causing me to gasp and nearly jump out of my seat.

    With the exception of the 'Antz' one, I didn't read any of the responses because I haven't seen the other movies. I frequently like the blooper reels more than the actual shows, such as the remake of 'Fun with Dick and Jane'. My favourites are Jackie Chan's, though, and I really like the movies too. I'm quite sorry that the 'Trinity' movies didn't include them.
    As for an actual movie ending, it would probably be the one from my own favourite movie. It was called 'Birds of Prey'.

    Absanively (if you're talking about the David Jansen one). I liked it very much. I always agree with you.

    I like the ending of Paulie. It's a very happy reunion with a surprise in it.
