Could she have been a haggard looking 30 yo on the plane and a well preserved 60 yo in the future?

Funny, the very first thing that popped in my head was Old Yeller. I'm guessing that doesn't really count, but that's what hit me first, so there it is.

Some great movies have been named though through this thread

Oh I like challenges ill start with 12 monkeys hrs unable to stop it and dies in the end. Night of the living dead and paranormal activities and Tin cup he loses. And let's see a league of their own very sad ending. Seven he totally manipulated them at the end to do exactly what he wanted when he had his girlfriends head delivered to him . Needfull things devil wins. And aliens 3 hero dies. And the fallen and finnally black hawk down.

So do I win a prize ☺

Insidius 2



Urban legend (I cant remember how many they are, 3-5)

House of sand and fog is one of the most depressing movies I've ever watched, it's right up there with The Mist.

Other potential candidates

Dead man's shoes
Jean De Florette
Life Is Beautiful

Reservoir Dogs
True Romance
Se7ven
12 Monkeys
The Mist ..since we are talking the movie ending and not the book..

Then there are the more obscure or depressing films

Inside
A Serbian Film
Frontier(s)
Irreversible

It's not hard at all to come up with tons of films where the good guy doesnt win...

Your username made me think of another, The Grey Liam Neeson and his pals become wolf chow at the end.

Event Horizon. The movie has no resolution. The nightmare just goes on. So in a sense a bad guy wins?

Old boy, no one won that one.

Inception is another one that just came to mind



But due to the ending it's open to viewer discretion whether he's reunited with his kids in reality OR he's still stuck in the dream world

IF he is still in the dream world it opens the philosophical question of what is reality and if he's happy in his dream world then is that ok as his reality because he no longer cares to see if his totem stops spinning when he sees his kids or has he "lost" by still being stuck in the dream world

Kidnapped

Not the best made movie, but a gem just because of the ending.

Passion of Christ?? Whos that? I think you mean Brian, as in The Life Of Brian. Though technically he didn't die before the end of the film. Though he was a naughty boy.
What about John Wayne in The Sands Of Iwo Jima. He got killed before the end of the movie.
