    I wish A.I. ended twenty minutes before it did. If it ended with David on the bottom of the sea, it would have been nearly a perfect movie. Then they had to go and push past that natural ending for twenty minutes of future aliens.

    Gawd. I thought the same thing.

    I had some negative feelings about that ending as well. I mean, it hit me pretty hard... but it felt kind of tacked on the end and different in tone from the rest.

    heh. Well, I saw a few of those in the dark jokes thread here this past week. *doh*

    But yeah. It totally ruined the story that King wrote, but it was so... "wow... they WENT for it!" unbelievable.

    Shit. So you did misunderstand the ending?

    it was not a dream. The only time the characters were "dead" was in the alternate timeline in Season 6 (where everyone was acting a little strange, the facts were different, etc.)-- because it is occurring WELL beyond the actual lifespans of all the characters involved at some far distant point on the timeline and was merely a construct made by their joint psyche to find each other before moving on.

    But everything you saw on the island actually did happen. It wasn't a dream, and they were not dead. Everyone who died, died in the timeline as shown in the series; the six people who escaped the island DID reach safety and they died eventually of old age (presumably).

    This is another reason why I think ABC screwed things up with those stupid pictures of the wreckage -- it made it look like no one survived the wreck. That was incorrect, they just added those pictures to give something to people to look at rather than just smacking them abruptly with the Lost logo.


    But I like all the other suggestions you made and things they could have explored. I also think the show was stronger when they were exploring the others and concept of other. That's a good point.

    I was pretty upset by how Doakes died in the "Dexter" books. Not the show, but the books. Which one was it? "Dearly Devoted Dexter"? The second one, whatever it was called. Freaked me out. I mean, the whole book freaked me out, but that image of Doakes at the end still haunts me.


    Edit: Regarding the "Lost" ending, I didn't mind it at all. I thought it struck a nice balance, to try and satisfy both types of fans of the show, i.e. the mythology fans, and the "omg which guy is Kate going to choose??" fans. I also thought the final minutes of the episode -- especially the last shot -- was just gorgeous. The perfect, and most poetic, way for it to end.

    I also appreciated that, with such an imperfect cast of characters, the final season and the revelation of the final episode gave each and every one of them a chance at redemption.

    A bad ending of a book:

    I hated the ending of "The elegance of the hedgehog", finally things started to look up for the heroine, hope, light and love started entering her life and BOOM the author had to smash that with a big fat hammer of depression. Yeah, why have a nice happy ending when one can be all "Life is cruel and in the end meaningless" about it. I literally threw the book against the wall of my room because I was so annoyed by this tacked on downer ending.

    Well it’s not that I thought they were all dead from the moment they got to the island, it’s more like- in the practically autistic mechanism which is my INJ brain (emphasis on the *J*)- it veered way off course from what I was hoping for/expecting and so it’s practically in that “they were dead the whole time” category until I can watch it again. Admittedly, I didn’t get it- and I have to forget all the stuff I was hoping for/all the attachments I had to an anticipated ending have to fade before I can go back and actually see what happened. I’ve read pieces on it (the one MacGuffin posted a while back was interesting), and I actually look forward to the day when I can watch it and the ‘slate has been wiped clean’ enough to actually see those things. It’s kind of like when you accidentally pick up someone else’s glass and take a big swig of beer when you expect it to taste like cola- even if the beer is actually good, the initial reaction can be like “UGH!” I have to wait for the expectation to go away to see what’s really there. I’m still in the “UGH!” phase.

    Ha, totally get that! I have a weird story about it, in fact... When I was 14 or something, I went with my parents to visit friends of theirs, and there was bread on the table that I thought was banana bread, so I took a big bite. turns out it was zucchini bread. I was very ill from the experience (because I had been expecting banana flavor) and for years after could not even bring myself to taste zucchini bread. I'm talking about 25 years. I think I finally had it within the last few years, tentatively, and thuoght... "oh.... that's actually not too bad. I can eat this."

    A shock experience like that can really stick with.

    A-yup. It's like they tried to smush two movies together. Or maybe they just wanted to justify Charlize Theron's appearance.

    I thought Stoker's Dracula was anticlimactic. There, I said it.

    Also, I have a few bones to pick with the ending of A Series of Unfortunate Events...

    The ending to The Five Year engagement. I didn't think the movie could get worse, but the ending guaranteed it could.

    I'm one of the rare few that agree. I effin' loved the end.

    Assuming the thread is not limited to sad endings -

    Cowboy Bebop -

    Why on earth did he have to go on a suicide mission? It makes no sense. Spike is the ultimate survivor but chose to end his life because some girl died?

    Lost -

    Wtf? I feel they took us for a ride.
