Tell me about a films ending that you were blown away by.

I dont care if its horror or not it doesnt really matter.

The reason why I ask is, I saw Saw last night and although I expected the killer to be who it was I did not expect him to be doing what he was doing.

Hope I worded this in a way that doesnt spoil it for anyone who hasnt seen it, and if it does, TUFF SHIT you were warned:p

6th sense was the obvious one.

the village was supposed to be one but if you didnt see that one coming you were sleeping.

The Others was the one that really got me .. brilliant concept ...

if you're gonna say sleepaway camp - then you have to say The Crying Game .. although it didnt come at the very end .. close enough though

no .. i was just dissapointed that Jason Lee got taken out at the beginning of the movie because he was the only thing that film had going for it.

god it was sooooo stephen king .... what a tired old hack .. and i'm not going to blame the filmmakers on that one .. it looked smelled sounded like a king novel .. word for word ..
(the flashbacks .. giving you a little at a time ... the 'grand scheme and the government involvement)

jesus he just keeps recycling the same shit over and over again..

chaplain .. i grew up with king ... was reading them as he was writing them .. from the 1st book on ...

i just cant read the guy anymore.

I thought Christine, The Deadzone ... and one or two others were actually better than the books ..
that should never happen

Fight club, when you find out Tyler durden is actually the narrator that was cool, Also the end of wicker man- saw it when i was a kid never expected Eddie to get burnt alive.

I'm one of the biggest fans of Stephen King...But I have to admit his later stuff is a bit redundant and tired.

I've been reading King for many years, I believe I've read inbetween 17 and 22 of his books and love them all.I think he is one of the greatest writers of our time.

i read Kings non-fic book the Dance Macabre and he sort of makes excuses for himself ... in his 'there are really only 3 horror stories' theory.
I subscribe to the theory to a point but when i got thinking about it .. everything he's done has been a variation on something thats done before ...

the latter books are the most inventive but his style has become so old and worn and set in stone that they seem like tired old ideas ...


but yeah ... the childhood friend thing ... he writes in a very seductive way .. he has an art of leading you further and further into the book (often against your will) but there just isnt a payoff.

He's like a really good hooker ... all the right moves - technically proficient - but no passion .. only in it for the money.

i read everything ... until the 90s .. with a couple of exceptions .. like insomniac ... and a couple of others ...

I was starting to branch out into more modern classics ... Dickens, dh laurence, graham greene .. and started to see the difference between a good commercial writer and a great writer ...

but that was my experience .. my journey ... and my opinion ..


hey, my choices are pretty commercial and pedestrian compared to someone elses point of view again ...

If you weren't a great guy urge, I would be all over you with "fuck yous" and such.:p

hahahahaha thats ok, i can take it :)

hey, its just personal experience talking ...
i do suggest some Dickens though if you want to see where my point of view comes from ..

i said this in another (probably better related thread)
that King seems to want to spell it all out for us .. he paints a complete picture of everything .. and takes 5 - 10 pages to do it where Dickens will give you the key scraps of information to allow you to flesh in the rest on your own ..

its a personal thing obviously but its a style i prefer ...

Well, none "blew me away", but I thought the end to "existenz"
was a little "whoa...what just happened?"

And not that all the twists happened in the END, but The 13th floor had it good like that, too...

The end of the Original NotLD really shocked me. As it was meant to.

Hannibal had a damn good ending, too

And the ending of Jeepers Creepers 2 was good, with the old guy waiting for the Creeper to wake up.

The end of Usual Suspects, I honestly thought that it was Keaton all along. Good story.
