The ending to one of my favorite movies Apocalypto........

Lets just say the main character escapes death in a Aztec sacrificial ritual....barely makes it through the jungle to save is family, only to hit the shoreline and see Spanish ships rolling in.....brilliant movie!!....At the end your overcome with this "oh sh!t" feeling.

On a light note, no matter how many times I've watched It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963 version), the ending where Ethel Merman's Mrs. Marcus character comes marching in to the intensive care unit and wipes out on the banana peel is as enjoyable as the first time:

Welcome To Dongmakgol.

During the Korean war, soldiers from North and South Korea (who absolutely hate each other) meet up in a remote, peaceful village up in the mountains. Living the natural life for a while, they end up at least respecting each other, and half friendly. But, when the village is on the map for a major bombing by US/Korean forces, these men unite to save the village by setting up a dummy village for the air raid to attack. At the very end, as the last of the bombs drop onto them in slo-mo from the sky, their last act is to turn and smile to each other in sincere friendship and joy. They're dying, but the village is saved.

Whatever Happened To Baby Jane

On the beach with her dying sister, Baby Jane Hudson, now an alcoholic, neurotic killer, and on the run from the police, regresses to the child star she once was, she sees the crowd and the police circling her as her audience and blissfully gives the singing dancing performance of her life.

(it wasn't all her fault either, it was Blanche who drove Jane mad. A lot of folk don't realise that. Poor Jane.)

Suddenly, Last Summer (1959), adapted from a Tennessee Williams play.

I went into the movie knowing nothing about it and the ending was just jaw dropping.



If you like classic movies, this one is a must see!

Who can ever forget the ending of "The Sixth Sense" ? Once that ring hits the floor, realizing that he's been dead all along...

I never saw that one coming and I am sure that I am not alone !





The Sixth Sense

I felt exactly the same watching that one. It was so cleverly made, I never thought for one second throughout the movie that the psychiatrist was dead too. That was a great OH MY GOD movie moment.

The Shawshank Redemption:



About hope and friendship.
Then again I think that is one of the best stories that King wrote.

Usual suspects was very good,.. but I like Trainspotting as well, just to see Renton get away with the money and Begbie getting what he deserves!



And of course Spud getting a wad of cash too!... hmmm, wonder what he was going to do with that??

The eighties and the nineties regarding films were some of the best plots..
Today, sadly there is only so many decent films with decent endings about..

Ive seen probably 60% of the films out there and these two i will look into as i may have
missed a few classics here.. Shame these kinda films are not made like they used to make them.
