so, what do you prefer? happy endings or sad endings??

i prefer sad ones..although some i find exaggerated...
for example, the ending in The Mist absoutely destroyed me.

so??

tell me if this has been done.

The twist endings that just blow your mind away so that you have to spend the next week searching your house for the remains and try to glue it back together.

For the most part sad endings, but happy is nice too.

Also these. Shutter Island did this beautifully.

Realistic


I don't want any bullshit murderer coming to get the main character and then he trips over a rock and twist his ankle, end of story, happy ending.

Endings that fit the story. If it should be sad then don't force a happy ending. The mist had one of the best endings IMO.

Oh god how I love those.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

bittersweet endings, twist endings, and unresolved cliffhangers are all good. How should I vote?

I loved the ending to The Mist, I kinda felt it coming as I got near the end but didn't want to believe it

Sad, usually I like at least one of the main characters to have died, like in the Expendables, that ruined it for me
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

happy but not too sappy



I prefer kinda open endings where you know what's going to happen, but the ending doesn't tell you.

I don't really have a preference...

I enjoy bleak (original Dawn of the Dead) and hopeful (The Lives of Others).

And the ending of the Mist was brilliant. Another Stephen King adaption that makes the source material look average.

I was shocked at the end of The Mist, more at the fact they decided to end the movie like that. It didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the movie and felt like a cheap way to leave an impact on you.

those mind**** endings like on the Saw movies are my favorite.


From the list, i would say sad but not too much. The Mist ending like TS said is a perfect example

depends on the movie. i always wonder about this in the context of clerks.

in the original ending, dante is shot to death at the end. test audiences didn't like it, so they cut the movie at the part where randall leaves the store on a good note.

the movie's hilarious and it's definitely depressing to see dante's lifeless body looking at the camera. but it's funny in a twisted way (when a guy comes in, sees him dead and then takes off with a pack of smokes).

it's also the LOGICAL and FITTING conclusion to the movie. dante's death is foreshadowed so many times it's ridiculous. everything in that movie is connected. dante's motif of "i'm not even supposed to be here today."

the events of the day get more and more outrageous when he wasn't even supposed to be there. it's really existential and depressing.

but, as fitting as it is, i don't know if i'd like it as much if dante did die. that's no way to end one of the funniest movies ever.

How's that not to sad. SPOILER! The man watched his town get killed, and turn against each other. Then failed to escape, and had to kill everyone close to him personally, including his son. After which he could not kill himself. Then less then a minute later, the military rolls in fixing everything. Meaning if he had waiting another minute, they would have all been saved. He wouldn't have had to kill his family.

i agree with everything you just said. not to mention it spawned the sequel, which was funnier IMO, by not killing him off

DEAR GOD THE SPOILERS.

The ending to This Is England was perfect, brings a tear to my eye everytime. I can't stand Shane Meadows for making a ****ing TV series off the back of it. It had better be damn good.

it didn't make me cry or anything, which isnt impossible either. Then again that could have been taken as a mind**** ending

I hate cliffhangers, and endings that don't tie up the loose ends. most particularly when the series is canceled, dropped, the author died, or there is no hope for another installment. bah!

ex. Inception

YES.

Endings like that are my favorite. The endings of Memento and Se7en are excellent as well

I generally just like endings that I can't see coming a mile away. I don't care if they're happy, sad, or in the middle, but I want to be genuinely surprised. A good example would be The Mist's ending:

**SPOILERS AHEAD**I thought he would simply get killed by a monster, since he ran out of bullets, but right as he finished off his kid and he saw the military trucks, I shat bricks. I really didn't see it coming, and it got into my head.**SPOILERS DONE**

Endings like that are much more memorable to me than a simple, "everyone lives happily ever after" or "the bad guy loses", or anything along those lines, and they're a lot more satisfying.

I just finished Season 4 of Dexter, I feel terrible right now
