Best Film Endings - Happy (not that sort) or Sad

Recommended Posts

SNACKY's choice of "The Long Good Friday" is a good one. In that sequence - using only his face - Hoskins pulled off an acting masterclass. 

That you never saw him or Helen Mirren die always left me with the hope there'd be a sequel. 

It would've probably needed a very convoluted plot to get both of them into "The Even Longer Easter Monday" - but on their own it could've been plausible.

The car Hoskins was being taken to his death in could've been crashed into in the busy London traffic, and with the IRA guys taking the punishment in the front, Bob could've escaped and ran-off into the night.

If only, as the saying goes. Sadly, no longer possible...

I actually thought the best scene was when the Doc saves the daughter from choking.


I thought you wanted endings? But, yep, I agree about the scene when the lad steps off the baseball field and turns into Burt Lancaster. Then he and then James Earl Jones walk off into the corn.

The acting of Guinness and Holden here is simply brilliant. The "What have I done?" after he realises that Holden's character has come back to blow the bridge is amazing. Prior to that both Holden and Hawkins urging the character of the young officer to kill Guinness's character is just superb.

Yes, I think to be a great ending though it has to pretty much be the most powerful part of the film - although I'II probably think of a load of examples where this isn't the case.

I think the guy meeting the spirit of his father at the end, after having talked throughout the film about the rift between him and his father when he was a boy, is a pretty powerful film ending and a wonderful piece of story telling.

Raiders of the Lost Ark hangar scene at the end works exceptionally well for such a brief scene and probably fomented a distrust of government amongst a new generation.

You clearly have more "continental" films than I. Most of mine end with spunk on a lady's bum!

I did say not that sort of ending.

Dont want to spoil it by hinting at the ending but 'The Mist' must have one of the bleakest endings of any film ever

That did take me by surprise. The brutality at the end of Casino is unexpectedly jarring similarly.

I have some similar ones Pinny.

But most of the spunk flying around seems to mine - none of which ends-up on a lady's bum.

It's my computer-chair and keyboard that seem to bear the brunt of my nocturnal releases of baby-gravy...

SSSSsssshhhhhh the fuck up Pinny man...!!!

She's gone to bed 'cos she's at work early in the morning.

I've got "Charlie's Anals" set-up in the BluRay player - and am now just patiently waiting for her to start snoring...
