Bad Movie Endings

Okay, so I watched a borrowed copy of "Panic Room" this weekend and I really enjoyed it up until the last 3 minutes. WTF??!!!!!!! I mean that had to be one of the lamest endings in the history of bad endings.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~Semi-Spoliers*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

What was with that last tension building moment where they focus in on Jodie Foster's face and cut to Forest Whitaker in the back yard? The music builds slowly, cut scenes back and forth, then the music crescendos and long pause...fade to black.
I was like, huh? What was that about? Then we cut to a scene of Jodie's charcter and her daughter looking for new apartment. The End. What??!! What the hell was that? Oh my gawd, it was aweful!

I was sitting there watching the credits roll and thinking "What a load of crap!" I haven't seen a movie ending that bad since "Mission to Mars" (which again was good until the very end. I immediately wanted my $7 back from the box office. They spent all that time building up and getting into the facility and it ends with a 8 minute unacceptable mystery solved..Boo!!!! Boo!!!!.). The worst thing about the "Panic Room" ending was that it ruined a very good movie. The acting was good and the plot was well developed, but with that ending I will NOT be buying the DVD anytime in the next 10 years.

~*~*~*~*~End Spoilers*~*~*~*~*~*~

Now here are a few movies I thoroughly enjoyed all the way to the endings:

Dawn of the Dead
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Jaws
The Terminator
&
Halloween

...just to name a few. In all of these, the ending is just as important as the rest of the movie. Poignant and relevant.

 
Now for today's Cure song.

 Today's Cure song is "Fascination Street" from the Disintegration CD-(1989)  Follow the heavy bass line as Robert takes us down Fascination Street where it's time to party and not give a damn.

"Oh it's opening time Down on fascination street. So let's cut the conversation, and get out for a bit "

I agree on both counts but the "Mission to Mars" ending completely made me wonder why the hell I had gone to that movie at all.

I couldn't agree with you more. In fact, I recently watched a movie that had a crappy ending, but I can't recall what it was. I just remember being angry that it was such a bad ending.

Every year my son Dylan and I have been building our Halloween animatronic display. This year we added 12 new figures and my wife had been making the clothes etc. but then I clued in that Halloween Costumes were the ideal solution - ya, ok I'm slow but...This year is really cool because we've done an HP Lovecraft display that I'm sure he'd appreciate but I'm not so sure he'd approve of this - The Necronomicon - Is it just me or is that just plain goofy ? Anyway, everybody is doing their own Haunted House thing now but hey - it's fun and if you've got kids I really suggest you try it yourself if you haven't already. It's a nice change from the usual Christmas Lights routine and a lot of scaaarrry fun. Happy Halloween everybody.
