Love the movie or hate the movie, the ending was appropriately tied to the rest of the movie. It was a unified meditation on the random interconnectedness (yeah, I just made that up) of the human experience, and the ending ties in very well with the opening montage/prologue. Everyone who looks for an explanation of the ending just overlooked the whole part about shit happening that seems like it should have an explanation but doesn't. So, yeah, I think that movie does what it set out to do and, in that way, works very well.

For those who say the think the movie was good up until the end, I contend that you just didn't get it.

Of course, it's possible to "get it" and still hate the movie.

But not because of the frogs. I hated the end because they built up with the prologue this "remarkable coincidence", and then listed these remarkable coincidences. Then, the big coincidence? All of these people who have thin connections between them happened to all witness a frogstorm. Just another people-with-different-storylines-connected-by-a-city movie. Ugh.

but it fit the movie perfectly. The corrupt cop gets his, the thug and the hooker live happily ever after and the opportunist climbs further up the ladder. Sometime I think Bud should have died, but it might have been too depressing. A hero's funeral wouldn't have meant shit since they labeled the crooked chief as a hero.

End it at the hotel. The movie was done at that point. I was actually walking out after that scene and was suprised the movie was still playing.

The little titles about "he went to jail" and "he went on to do yada yada yada" completely ruined the mythos they'd built. It was almost like he'd written THE END in big letters, when the most interesting aspect is what happens after the final scene. Does Mr. Glass get away? How does Bruce Willis deal with this info? What does he do after dealing with Mr. Glass? How do two people who live this way continue for the rest of their lives?

So many great questions, and he tried to answer them with one-sentence epilogue titles. Oy.

Not me, the end means THE END. I don't want any lingering questions doubts, in my mind that means you didn't tell the story well.

Of course there are SOME exceptions, but it's rare.

But with the titles, it was like summing up for us a very boring story that occurred after the story we just witnessed. I'd like to think there are stories that these characters have after the film ended.

In response to Reply # 237


  

          

and in the minority but i hated the shit. maybe it's cuz i was going in expecting straight up mobster goodness a la goodfellas, but the whole parody aspect was just lame to me throughout. and the ending made it even worse.

i think i'm just mad cuz i keep thinking about the film this could have been, which isn't really fair, but considering the resources marty had available to him, i just don't get why he went in this directon.

for example, i think mystic river is a way better picture ( i picked it cuz it's also a cop thing and also in boston), and not to underappreciate kevin bacon, sean penn, and tim robbins, but with damon, dicaprio, nicholson, martin sheen, wahlberg, and alec baldwin, i dont know. i just wanted more.

I sat there for 2 hours watching Tom Cruise run from aliens--which was pretty damn good--and then you wrap up the story with a tacked on voice-over from Morgan Freeman about how the aliens caught a cold and died?

Fuck you.

Aside from some truly incredible special effects, I just did not care for that movie. And I'm a big Tom Cruise apologist too, but man, I just left that movie with a bad taste in my mouth.

And Nick's right, the voiceover? Ugh.

In response to Reply # 10
Mon Mar-26-07 03:53 PM by Jon

          

made sense, rhymed with the theme

made me feel like shit

edit: i feel i should elaborate with this one.

one of the major things people criticize is that it dragged on way too long...i emphatically disagree. to me, all that dragging-out was part of the experience.

the part that bothered me immensely, was how they sort-of "brought back" his mother at the end, but he'd only get to spend one day with her, and it ends with him snuggling with her at night (as she'll be gone FOREVER tomorrow)

that made me feel awful

but the fact that they presented this part as a fairy-tale happy-ending (when you knew it must suck tomorrow, but temporarily, there's happiness) served as the perfect punctuation on the whole "artificial" theme of the film. and they did it well, with the narrator, music, and teddy bear climbing into bed at the end...perfect form....and you KNEW the shit wasn't a REAL happy ending. just the best they could manufacture.

People just can't do crazy shit like spin the world backwards if no previous hints to such an ability (Or, in the case of intervention by the gods, omnipotent beings) has been hinted at before

Also, if Supes can fly around the world faster than the speed of light, why come he couldn't fly fast enough to catch both missiles?

He kicked their asses

Got his girl back

And got revenge on the diner rednecks. As a black man, I appreciated that.

The movie was okay, could have been a lot better, but the ending was way too soft for a Summer blockbuster... and by soft, yes, I do mean GAY.

No offense.

The Laura Linney as Lady Macbeth thing rang TOTALLY false to me. The whole movie seemed misogynistic, and then to tack on this stupid awful character turn was terrible, in my opinion.

Just to be different, I suppose.

I still don't know why people think the Linney scene was so out of character. Unexpected is not the same as out of character. I thought it fit perfectly.

does anyone else feel like the past some-odd years have been plagued with great movies that cannot finish strong to save their life?

like a boxer who out-classes his opponent in brilliant fashion for 9 rounds, then staggers his opponent, and then trips over the refs foot and goes to sleep...end of fight

A little anti-climatic, the film really ends when Leonidas & crew are defeated.

Given the plot, tho, I'm not sure they could have avoided it.

Yeah I thought it would've been cool if it ended w/ all the arrows heading towards Leonidas. That was a great shot.

In the context of the movie, it's his childhood, innocence, and happiness: lost as a child, forgotten as an adult, and going up in smoke now that he's dead.

You're right about the origin of the nickname, though.

it's ruined by the 30yrs later scene though. She had like 20 kids and none of them were his. Plus, he looked like Col. Sanders.

But like I said, the rest was great. Especially the first part of his father's monologue.

It changes the way the audience feels about Travis irreversibly. Even if you cheer for the guy, thinking "yeah, those fuckin scumbags had it coming," you have to acknowledge the fact that it was heading towards ending with him assassinating the candidate, which can't be justified.
It's so extreme that it just knocks you on your ass. It still does for me and I've seen it a bunch of times.
The look on Deniro's face when the cops come in, the banality of the letter from the girl's parents, the return to normalcy, the list goes on.

(I don't mean that the riot was stagy. I mean the idea that Mooky would go back to Sal's to get his money, and Sal didn't try to knock the shit out of them. The fact that they actually have something of a conversation - antagonistic thought it is - always felt odd to me, although the humor makes it work. Maybe it was Spike's acting, or lack thereof?)

And the fact that he actually pays him is bullshit. Didn't buy it at all. Great movie otherwise.

But surprisingly dark considering the tone of the rest of the film. Then again, I guess the REAL ending happens in Red.

Emotionally and gut-wise, I think it's a good ending. The final image of Karol Karol is effin' iconic to me. Beautiful. It should be a mainstay of classic film moments montages.

When I think about it, I don't really like the ending...maybe because I don't like the movie from the point ****spoiler**** of his funeral and beyond ****spoiler end*****. But, yet, I see the point to the film's story.

I wasn't expecting to see a literal connection between the stories. I thought it was kinda unnecessary in the sense that the trilogy would stand up without it. Then again, it does leave you with something to think about. Either way, better than raining frogs.

I definitely think the trilogy would be no less great without Red's ending, but taking into account Kieslowski's metaphysical and fate angle (like in the wonderful Blind Chance and semi-wonderful Double Life)...it so works for me.

First viewing, I was like, "Oh shit!."

On face value, yup, it's contrived; in terms of context, it's wonderful.

I'm trying to remember the ending . . . i dont know if it was that scene where they just shared breakfast like theyre a couple.

If so, then yeah it was a bad ending. But overall, very good film.

(probably not necessary in an "Endings" thread, but just to be safe)

It ends with him messing up the interrupting cow joke, then she just says "that's horrible".

It was really abrupt, but in a way there was no realistic way to end it. He's a drug addict, she's accepting of him, nothing looks like it's gonna change.
