there is a movie with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman(far and away?) and at the end cruise fells from a horse and seems to be death and you think what a sad ending and then he suddenly opens his eyes again, that ruins the whole movie!

Definately - the biggest feel good movie gone wrong, EVER - Pay if Forward.

Its a wonderful, heart warming movie, if you take out the last half hour of it. You leave the theatre thinking good things happen to those who deserve it - good people.

Put in the last half hour and its a pile of crap, with little point. Leave the theatre afer seeing the ending, and you feel like crap thinking - good things don't happen to good people - even those who try to make the world a better place for everyone else get fucked in the end.

I was seriously dissapointed with that movie. it was like they didn't know how to end it so came up with something stupid

:fiery:

I'm sure there are others but I just watched this the other night so it's fresh in my mind.... in the rage: carrie 2 , it's pathetic at the end... actually it's a weird movie because you know it's obviously not going to be a romantic movie or anything like that but then there is a love story going on and I for one thought it was really cute but then at the end she dies... and then she just cracks... *shudders* that was weird...

Also, Titanic lol.... Leo should of lived lol

I have to agree that Pay it Forward has the worst ending ever, I am a Helen Hunt fan and walk in hoping to see a feel good movie, when I finish watching I was thinking, 'why does that boy has to die? There 's no reason for it.' It seems like the director just put a tragic ending to make it more dramatic.

I hated the ending of L.A. Confidential, and I think it wrecked the movie. The whole movie was about evil and corruption, and how it takes over everything. Yet, the leads have a happy Hollywood ending. B.S.! The two guys should have died in the shoot out and Kim Basinger's character killed. That was the mood of the movie, and that was the appropriate ending. Think back to Chinatown, same mood, etc., proper ending. I think for this reason, L.A. Confidential will not age as well as Chinatown, though Chinatown was done a whole lot better.

And for film buffs out there who remember Chinatown, the original script had Dunaway doing a little time in jail and then running off to Mexico "in love" with Nicholson and her daughter. Polanski changed the ending. The movie would have been terrible with the original ending, not worthy of its entire story!

I would have changed the ending to "Armageddon", so that instead of being blown up in space, the asteroid would have impacted the earth at several thousand miles per hour, landing directly on Celine Dion's house.

I'd like that ending also, but Mariah Carey and the Spice Girls (the group, not the tennis duo) would have to be visiting Celine at the time. And Charo, too, she was with Celine at the time! Plus, all copies of "Glitter" are on the premises at the time.

Sorry to Mariah fans, it's just not my kind of music. No apologies for the Spice Girls and Charo, though..... ;)

I'd change the ending to Titanic as well, and sink the damn boat after three minutes not three hours :(.

God I've never been so bored :eek: :mad: :( :fiery: .

I didn't have to think too hard with this one:
Mimic

I was surprised by amused I was when I first saw it. I thought it was really good...

BUT THAT ENDING!!!

I wish they picked out more randomly who was going to die and who wasn't. All they had to do was either knock out the autistic boy or the Jeremy Northam character.

The real kicker was when they all hugged at the end. YAK!

Whenever I watch the movie again I cut it off before the Northam character re-emerges and pretend that he died.

independence day should have had another ending too, will smith should have been lost in space and not have been back again
that would have saved the movie:rolleyes:

:rolleyes: @ people think Pay It Forward is worst ending movie ever BUT... I might remind you again that the movie is true story? :p That what people who work in the movie say in newspaper! :eek: I was shock but I agree with you that the ending movie was worst.

Well... Force of Nature is worst ending movie ever I seen! :mad: Why Ben and Sally don't stay together?! :o LOL!

Im a huge fan of Anthony Hopkins and Juliane Moore and I really liked Hannibal, but I did not like the ending to the movie. I have not read the novel so I have no clue how that ended, but I didnt like the ending to Hannibal.

Oh, definitely the end of "The Breakfast Club", where they give Ally Sheedy's character a hideous makeover and pair her up with school jock Emilio Estevez. It makes me want to attack my TV every time I see it. ;)

Alex Sydney - what paper did you read that in? I've never ever heard that pay it forward was based on a true story.

Generally if it was, they write somethign at the start fo the show like " Based on true events" or something to that effect.

No where in the movie do I recall seeing that :confused:

Not that I don't beleive you, but I'd definately have to see more evidence in order to beleive it really happened.

Untill that happens - the ending sucked :D

"Gone with the wind"

The ending is great as it is, it makes the film epic. It's the perfect ending to a wonderful film.

But it's wrong, wrong, WRONG! how can he leave??? AFTER 4 HOURS of watching the film!!!! just when Ms. O'hara thick head clears!!! I swear it drives me up the wall. How could they leave it at that?? I am in denial. He doesn't go, they live together and happy ever after ;) lol

...and I know there is a sequel where they do get together, but that doesn't count...

Jurassic Park 3. The dinosaurs had been working hard chasing the cast throughout the movie in search of their eggs. In the end, the people appeased the dinosaurs by giving the eggs back. I think a more realistic ending would be for the dinosaurs to eat the cast regardless. They'd then take the eggs anyway. It would be sort of like a working lunch.

LOL at Red- I think the director, producer and cast should have been eaten for making a third movie.

The ending of 'The Horse Whisperer' annoyed me to no end...that was such an awesome book, (especially since I'm into horses, and I know one of the guys that the book was loosely based on)
and they just ruined it when they completely changed the movie ending!

I didnīt like that movie with Julia Roberts called in german ( I never know the original title, cause they translate it like Jerks :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: ) "Magnolias of steel" :confused: :confused: where she dies at the end. Her Mum is played by Sally Field. :D

A friend of our family watched the movie with us and cried at the end, cause she lost her son too, when she was young. Her son died of cancer. Itīs the worst that can happend to someone: to lose your child.
A bad movie !!!:o :mad:

Hey Oizo, I think the name in English is "Steel Magnolias" but I am not sure... I think it's a great film, even if she dies... I mean that's the whole plot, she has a great life, she gets ill, she dies.

I have more problem with films where the end comes up out of nowhere and blind sides you. When the ending is uneccesary, unrelated to the whole plot or just plain silly to try and ammend for the short comings of the film. Making it a drama when the film is not a drama.

Thanx Gallofa. Well the movie wasnīt bad. I think Julia had an academy award nominee for that role, right? I just didn`t like the ending.:rolleyes:

This is, however, broadly true ;) Haven't seen this movie, but am definitely going to check it out now.
I really want to make a Bond film where he dies, and the villains get their wicked way. Otherwise it's TOO predictable. Ummm... any number of bad romantic films I'd change so that the leading couple didn't get together.

LMAO Fiona! ;)

Pay it Forward... I dont' think it was based on a true story.... They should change the ending.. :sad:

City of the Angels... I thought that they would live happily ever after... :sad: So sad.... :sad:

But most of the endings of the movies are ment to be! :p;)

I'd change the ending to "Force of Nature" the one with Ben Affleck and Sandra Bullock. I'd change it so they got it together in the end and he didn't marry Abby from ER :mad:

According to Peter Bogdanovich the way the studio took "The Magnificent Ambersons" out of Orson Welles' hands and changed the complete ending, is one of the biggest tragedy's in filmhistory. From an artistic point of view I can only agree with that.
