For sports movies,

The Replacements.

They did end up winning the game, but they all went back to their regular jobs and were forgotten as quickly as they won glory. No lasting anything for what they went through.

Butterfly effect because in the end to do the right thing he had to give up the one thing he wanted most in the world.

Any movie about vietnam...wait does the U.S. count as the good guy???


Oh and since we are counting main characters as "good guys" in gangsta flicks...Scarface!

Natural Born Killers came to mind.

The Watchmen is neat because it is difficult to tell if the greater good was achieved or not.

Inglorious Bastards. Although the good guys didn't lose, the main bad guy definitely won.

Dancer in the Dark. Horribly devastating film to watch but it definitely fits your criteria.

Old Yeller. *sniff*

Victim (1961). This is a British film about the extortion of homosexuals. Also interesting to note that it was the first time the word "homosexual" was spoken in a film.

Also, a lot of horror flicks.

Serbian Film


never made it to the end of that film but I didn't think it would end well. By far the worst thing I've ever seen.

In another thread a member claimed that there are only seven different plots to a movie and everything is just a variation on the seven themes.

This reminded me of an old conversation we used to have, name a movie in which the good guy does not win.

Moral victories can be argued.

I seem to remember that it was against the law in the US for a movie in which the bad guy wins to even be made until 1950 something.

We found a couple over the past 20 years but they are not easy to find.


The Astronauts Wife....if the aliens are the bad guys...who knows. lol

How about Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs?

He won (completed his escape) and got take out at the end of that movie. So in truth, the FBI caught one killer, only to loose another. A nett loss, since Lecter was a smarter, and much more dangerous killer than "Bill".

The first movie Saw. I love the ending and beginning. The guy loses the key to his shackles in the first 5seconds of the movie and the bad guy just gets up and walks away. As the main character amputates his own leg trying to escape.

Only got to page 3 and I thought of The Fourth Kind.


Also The Mist is the post of the thread.

Terrible film, but a real "f you" ending to everyone who watched.
If you didn't laugh, you smashed the remote through the TV screen.

TROY

Hectar played by Eric Bana was not only the most Decent one of them all he's also drop dead gorgeous! But alas he died, thankfully at the end of the movie and not the middle. More eye candy time.




A really great movie though loved it.

I admitted to my laziness. However, a simple internet search by you would have given you the info.

Prince of darkness by John Carpenter. You think they win, until the whole dream sequence is revealed.

Yea the bad guy successfully distributes a virus that just about wipes out humanity.


Actually, the final scene is with the bad guy safely on the plane and is seated next to Dr. jones, the astrophysicist from the future. It is a little ambiguous but the implication is that she is going to stop him as a result of Cole's final message to the future letting them know that they were looking for the Army of the 12 Monkeys in the wrong place. Yes, Cole was killed but not before he sent one last message to the future allowing them to discern who they needed to be stopping to prevent the virus.
