    What movie did you see whose ending left you feeling like you were missing something? For me it was No Country for Old Men. Loved it right unitil the end, but hated the ending.

    The ending of The Mist. Didn't leave me feeling like I was missing something...just made me feel like I wasted an hour and a half watching the movie.

    Eye of the Beholder (Ashley Judd, Ewan MacGregor) - felt like it was all 'middle'.
    i.e. didn't really have a beginning or an end.

    Girl Gone - very anti-climactic ending (except for NPH) :rimshot

    Not missing something but whenever I rewatch AI I end it with him beseeching the blue fair for all eternity. I don't go on to the ******** Aliens-single-day-cloning-feel-good-pretty-bow ending Spielberg duct taped to the end of a great Kubrick movie.

    When I was 10, it was the Empire Strikes Back. Only when I got older did I understand what a brilliant ending it was.

    Most adaptations of Stephen King novels, but that's usually down to the source material

    The longer version? I hate both endings.

    I like endings people hate.

    "No Country for Old Men"? LOVED that ending.

    Sideways. THERE is an ENDING!

    But my favorite? Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Sheer genius.

    The Departed ending left me feeling empty, fantastic movie but ... don't want to give away any spoilers.

    Stephen King has said that he wished he thought of that ending for the book.

    Fatal Attraction.

    The movie was great up until the last scene where she suddenly zombied out and killed the whole vibe. That's Hollywood for you. :rolleyes: It would have been great if Douglas would have drowned her and that was it .... much more realistic and riveting.

    With the exception of Unbreakable and The Sixth Sense, anything by M. Night Shyamalan.

    The end of Skyline was possibly the worst I can remember. While it was a sci-fi film...the end was just a cartoon...

    Wow I just realized I like MNS movies. I'm not going to say he's a good film maker, but of the ones I've seen I've like more than disliked. ...Learn something new everyday I guess.
