So you know how it is, you're watching a movie and it seems pretty good right up until the ending. Which is so awful that you feel like you have wasted an hour or two (or more) of your life.

Either the ending is unsatisfying, implausible or completely ridiculous. Sometimes it makes me wonder if the director just mailed it in.

For example: Jurassic Park III.

Not a bad movie overall, the CGI is pretty good, there are some exciting scenes. Of course it's not Shakespeare but a decent action flick. Up until the end. Spoiler Alert! If you haven't seen it either don't read this or save yourself the hour and a half and read the next paragraph. (Yeah right, a spoiler alert for a 14 year old movie!Laughing )

So Dr. Grant and friends are being drowned by a gigantic carnivorous dinosaur. He manages to snag a satellite phone and called the blonde chick from the first movie. Problem is, her three year old answers the phone and gets distracted by Barney on TV. By the time he gets the phone to his Mom she only hears a fragmentary, muddled din. Based solely on this and her toddlers assertion that it was "The Dinosaur Man" on the other end she is somehow able to mobilize a rescue flotilla comprised of the Navy, Air Force and Marines who show up mere hours later to rescue our beleaguered dino hunters. Talk about your Deus ex Machina.

Totally ruins a halfway decent adventure movie. Sick

I don't mind suspending disbelief to enjoy a film but don't insult my intelligence by coming up with something so preposterous.

Why not just have them ride a canoe through a time rift and end up in the Land of the Lost?
Sleestak anyone?

At least Jeff Goldblum's African American daughter didn't use her dubious gymnastic skills (she was cut from the team) to defeat a velociraptor, like in the second movie.

Of course despite a few stupid scenes I liked all the Jurassic Park movies. They had dinosaurs...'nuff said.

Two movies that I thought had endings that ruined it for me are Mystic River and No Country for Old Men (SPOILERS AHEAD)

Thinking about it, both films end the same--the bad guy gets away and innocent people die in the process. Sean Penn kills the wrong guy (innocent man) and gets away with it, and Javier Bardem kills, well, just about everyone and gets away with it.

I guess it boils down to my sense of justice and balance. I like to see things resolved in movies on a moral level. I watch movies to be entertained, to see things work out in the end, because that is something that is sorely lacking in real life. So to me, it sucks when movies just reflect the same crap that I can see just by looking outside or watching the news. I don't find it entertaining.


On another level, the ending of Sharknado was wonderfully bad in all the right ways.

You just reminded me of another one. Does anyone remember Se7en with Brad Pitt? The ending of that one completely (banned) me off. I will never watch that film again.

Interesting, because I actually liked that movie. Maybe I can reconcile it because the bad guy ultimately does get caught and presumably punished, whereas the other two films the bad guys get off scot free.

I thought Seven was pretty bad. Did not like the end, but one I think I hated worse was Steven King's(I know I should stop there) 'The Mist'. That ending made me feel like crap for hours afterward.

You are correct. They changed the ending from the story. Originally, it just ended with them in the car driving through the mist. Not really a conclusion but better than what they wound up doing.

Here's one: Dances with Wolves. I finally saw this one a few months ago. Look, I don't need every movie I see to tie up all the loose ends in a little bow at the end, but I hated how Kevin Costner and Indian Co. just wandered off at the end, with no real explanation as to how it all turns out. Sure, we know the United States eventually stomped all over the Indians by the time it was all over, but I just wanted something a little more concrete with this one, especially after sitting through it for three hours.

I was going to mention No Country For Old Men but its already been mentioned. It wasn't just the ending that was bad but how one of the main plot lines of the movie gets wrapped up off screen (referring to Josh Brolin's character's demise).

The one that comes to mind is Buried with Ryan Reynolds. Very brave idea for a movie cause it's just a movie with one character who the entire movie is trapped in a buried coffin. The ending made me feel bad enough I wouldn't recommend the movie to anyone even though its not a bad movie.

Shutter Island is another that I hated the ending too. The movie wasn't the best to begin with. Throw in a crappy ending and you really feel cheated for watching it.

For me it was Titanic. I mean really, the boat sinks. I could see that coming a mile away.

I think most dudes were okay with the ending, until the old lady throws the priceless diamond over the edge of the boat.

Agreed. It's one of my favorite short stories from him, but the movie was awful. Lots of cast members from Walking Dead in that one though...

It wasn't the greatest movie I agree, but I actually liked the ending to this one. It left it open for you to believe which ending you want, though it leaned heavily on one. I like that in a movie. Let me decide/deduce the outcome.

That one was a little weird. When the credits rolled I sat there thinking, "That's it?" Not sure what to think.Confused

MARK OF THE VAMPIRE (1935) The last ten minutes destroy the first great 50 minutes. Wall

WRONG TURN 3-The tacked on ending makes no sense whatsoever and is 180 degrees from the rest of the movie. It just isn't logical. Silly
