Worst Movie Endings Ever?

I vote for Space Cowboys. It's a strange choice but the ludicrous ending has always stayed with me. Yeah, I paid money to see it.

I have never seen Space Cowboys, but the ending reads just fine on paper.

If they don't change the ending in the book, the movie version of Gone Girl will have the worst movie ending ever.

Hate the epilogue for the final Harry Potter film.

Hate the ending to Sinister, because you can see it coming a mile away.

Pretty much everything Hollywood shits out. It's all so happy and blissful. Unlike reality.

The 90s film "The Devil's Advocate". An ambitious young lawyer (Keanu Reeves) goes to work for Satan's law firm, and slowly Satan (Al Pacino) takes over his life, and involves him in his nefarious plots. And just when it looks like Keanu is in so deep that it's not just him that's doomed but the whole world...

Poof! For no discernable reason, we're back at the beginning of the film, and he's given a chance to relive his life without taking the Satan job.

The studio must have insisted on changing the original ending, it feels so tacked-on.

[quote]Hate the epilogue for the final Harry Potter film.

Agree. But it's the first thing Rowling wrote so it was impossible to dump it. Ginny's character is so little developed that it's hard to have any reaction to Harry's marriage. Based on what we know, it's kind of like incest.

by Anonymousreply 802/06/2013

It's like Harry married Ginny so he could be part of the Weasley family, not because he loved her.

That's not incest, it's just a lousy thing to do to a girl.

Blade Runner should have ended with Rutger Hauer's epic (and totally improvised)'tears in the rain' speech and death.

UNBREAKABLE. M. Night Shyamalan's second film. By and large, my favorite of his movies, but the last thirty seconds almost destroys the preceding two hours. Laughably bad.

The Help...where I did all that campaigning and even left my wig at home to prove a point and then Octavia and M won and I got nothing.

He already was a member of the Weasley family which is why it is like incest.

A perfect film with a perfect ending ruined by the last 15 minutes, and Spielberg's weird need to force a happy ending.

Not that it was a great movie, but "The Break-Up"s ending was the pits...

by Anonymousreply 1502/06/2013

I liked the surreal little end scene in Space Cowboys -- most directors would have stopped with Clint and his wife looking up at the moon, but C took it to a surprising conclusion most will never forget.

HOLLYWOOD CONFIDENTIAL because in the genre and with the set-up provided Crowe's character would have been killed and not staggered around full of holes on the bitch's arm.

Not because by itself its the worst movie ending ever, but because it all but spoiled an otherwise very accomplished movie.

I actually disagree about THE MIST. I totally get why some people hate it. But I thought it was ballsy as all hell. True horror.

by Anonymousreply 2602/07/2013

Martyrs was pretty much foul sexiest torture porn, but the ending was just really bad and lazy and jsut used to pretentious message to cover up the fact there was no ending.

Haute tension was the same, the ending simply did not make any sense at it, in fact could not have happened. She was into two cars at the same time and crashed into one as the killer running herself in the other car off the road?

what's the end of space cowboys

by Anonymousreply 2802/07/2013

I love Suspiria because it's such a crazy over-the-top movie . . .

but the end plays out as if Dario Argento's drugs had worn off and he didn't know how to wind it all down.

For really old movies . . .

Hitchcock's Suspicion

by Anonymousreply 2902/07/2013

Loved the end of Space Cowboys.

Spoiler Alert

One of the senior astronauts, who never got to participate in a moon landing, sacrifices himself to keep a nuclear missile from entering earth's atmosphere. The other senior astronauts successfully make it back to earth and Clint and his wife wonder if the heroes plan of sending the missile debris towards the moon succeeded. Then we see the moon, and the dead missile and a trail from it and finally, the dead hero sitting upright. He had finally made it to the moon.

That sounds ridiculous, R30. Dumb dumb dumb. i hope tiffani thiessen and her fat face doesn't show up in the end credits. why is her face fat?

by Anonymousreply 3202/07/2013

How about Saving Private Ryan? Remember the old fart scenes tacked onto the beginning and end. The old fart salutes Tom Hanks grave. I laughed because it was corny.

I'm starting to like the Tiffani Amber Theissen fat face troll.

His "fat facer" remark in the SBTB reunion thread made me laugh out loud.

No r32 -- in context, it was beautiful -- I loved his little footprints leading to the place where she sat down to look at earth from far away -- something he always dreamed of.

[25] Actually, I think everything after Lincoln is handed his gloves by the servant before going to the theater had a "tacked-on" feel, not just the speech at the end. My totally crackpot theory is since the vampire Lincoln movie ended (the part involving Lincoln, anyway) with Lincoln fetching his forgotten hat then going to the theater, (yeah, I saw them both), Spielberg had a holy shit oh-no moment and added additional footage so everyone wouldn't be comparing the two. Yeah...right. Seriously, the ending of Lincoln definitely seems like a history lite lesson and at odds with the tone of the rest of the movie.

spielberg always has shitty endings to his movies.

by Anonymousreply 3702/07/2013

and no space cowboys was a lame ending. i laughed out loud and i don't think i was supposed to. if tiffani thiessen's fat face wasn't stealing some much oxygen on earth then tommy lee jones could have come home with the other old fart astronauts. damn tiffani thessien and her fucking fat face.

Laughing out loud was appropriate r38.

laughing out loud would only be appropriate if rob schneider had played the tommy lee jones part. it was a bad ending. HORRIBLE.

Trust me R3. Space Cowboys ending is cringe worthy.

by Anonymousreply 4302/07/2013

R41 that's not the ending I remember. IIRC she escaped and fled to safety and was last seen living alone in a caravan and thinking about her missing daughter. Completely different to the book which occurs much later at a conference long after the regime fell, where academics discuss the taPes of her testimony. it's a really frightening book on how a reasonably sane society quickly descends into extremism. Only wasp neocons would love to live in a place like Gilead!

Lots of otherwise good or great movies have bad or disappointing endings. The last movie in the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy had what felt like three or four different endings. I just saw ZERO DARK THIRTY and felt the very last scene, with Jessica Chastain sitting alone in that aircraft carrier, was a bit of a letdown.

Also, THE MASTER had a really bad ending, but I didn't like the movie as a whole.

Wow, I thought that was an amazing and appropriate ending. That last line ("Where are you going now?" or something like that) was right up there for me with that final image in THE SOCIAL NETWORK where he's just hitting refresh over and over.

by Anonymousreply 4802/07/2013

R48, I see what you mean, and I like the general idea of the ending, but there were some things about it that bothered me. First of all, honestly, why would they have a huge airplane take ONE passenger back to the U.S.? (I said "aircraft carrier," which was a dumb mistake; it was a military transport plane.) Also, the pilot's line to Maya is, "Where do you want to go" -- as if it's up to her to tell him that on the spot, like he's a taxi driver, and he wouldn't have been told beforehand. And lastly, I have mixed feelings about the very last shot of her sitting there and starting to cry.
