    Now that you say it that way, it reminds me of the opening 5-10 minutes of Alien 3... where Fincher kills off (as a plot device, to clear the way for his own story) all the characters we fell in love with and agonized over in Aliens and were elated to see survive.

    :steam: That pissed me off too!

    we already have to experience people in real life dying... it's just evil to get you attached to a character throughout a movie or series of movies and then kill them

    Of course I just get annoyed at the ending... My mom and sis (both FJs) cry and cry at endings like that... really, what's the point?

    King keeps to his belief of allowing his readers to use their imagination with many of his endings (Danse Macabre). Hollywood likes to leave little to the imagination.

    Hmm, I guess this is what I don't personally agree with, in terms of taste. Although...emotions/lack of emotional contents is a separate measure than reality/fantasy, so they need not be correlated.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
