top 10 greatest movie endings


Recommended Posts

in the vein of the awesome movie scenes thread and the low budget sci fi gems thread i want to hear from you what your 10 favorite movie endings are ! i for one am of the opinion that the ending can make or break a movie even if the 90% before were shit an awesome conclusion can turn anything around ! and i really mean the ending here dont just post your 10 favorite movies of all time for example i dont think that the ending of "heat" is really all that strong which is incidentally my all time favorite these days !

-the last crusade ( a more perfect trilogy conclusion couldn't have been executed)

-the fountain

-the plague dogs

-blade runner (directors cut/final cut)

-28 days later ( dvd bonus alternate ending)

-children of men


-end of evangelion






-the last king of scottland

-the good the bad and the ugly

after careful consideration i opted for not putting them in order often it depends what kind of mood you are in ^^ also i over shot the goal a bit with 15 movies :derp: so if you only have 3 at the top of your head let me hear them too...

i want them quality endings show them to me !!!!!!!!

I cant believe you guys forgot The Mist

I thought of the Mist as soon as I saw the topic title, because I knew someone would mention it. Is it good, though? It's certainly shocking and comes out of nowhere, and that seems more what the topic is about, but I wouldn't put it on the good pile. In context it doesn't make a lot of sense and it wasn't in the original story, it's just a sudden cheap as shit way to end the film.

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.


      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
