    Saw a bit of AI the other day and it reminded me how pissed off I was that the film didn't end with him trapped at the bottom of the sea. That would have been a perfect ending.

    Any other films like this? I'm tempted to say Return of the King but I think it just about justifies an extended ending due to it being part of a trilogy.

    Bad Boys 2.

    IT, was great when they were having flashbacks to being kids, but as soon as those bits stopped it went massively down hill, especially the ending.

    Citizen Kane should have been the Fammily Guy version from the start.

    Bah, beaten to mine by the OP :)

    There are loads though. Minority Report springs to mind, all that bollocks at the end with them living happily ever after in the cabin was awful.

    Predator, the scene with the minigun tearing apart the jungle should have been how they killed it. They could have shown more earlier, but that would have been a great finale.

    I kind of agree with AI, but I didn't mind the ending too much.

    The Shining. Amazing as it is, by the time you get to the end you’ve been so battered that the final chase sequence is just a bit dull.

    2001 also has a similar problem, it could just be a Kubrick thing…

    :D
    Haute Tension - before the shit twist/macguffin
    Dark Water - last half hour
    [rec] should've halted production when Blair Witch was made.

    The Dark Knight. A 15 minute trim would have made an already good film much better.

    Return of the King and King Kong. Oh, and perhaps Sunshine. The ending sucked royally in what was an otherwise great film.

    Yeah sunshine went downhill pretty fast at the end.

    Completely disagree about Casino Royale though. The ending does feel a bit too separate from the main story but it is completely necessary for Bond's character. Shows how he becomes so cold and distant.

    OK, agree on it does feel very separate from the main story. I guess it sets it up for the next film huh?

    You spin on the floor, when you come to a standstill you bow your legs thus () then you make stabbing motions with your hand towards the hole in your leg(x), you can mix it up by kidding on your chopping it with a big axe, that my man, is the cunt dance.

    Ooh, I like the axe bit. Can I improvise? I thought I could maybe do a magician string-of-hankies trick out of my mangina.

    Return of the King's ending made perfect sense, however, if you did the manly thing and watched all 3 Extended Editions back to back.

    I love the film, but I always feel The Godfather Part. 2 is a little bloated, and Part. 3 shouldn't have been made imo, or it should have been made a couple of years after Part.2 and made good.

    No country for old men.
    Zodiac.
    I think we (nearly) all agree Star wars 1977-1983, anything after just should not be names Star Wars.

    Zodiac. I was hoping that the reporter would get stabbed at the end of the film just so that the film would finish quicker.
