    I'll start.

    The Hunger Games.
    I think it's stupid how a dystopian society will allow the final two people to not fight to the death just because they were in love with each other and threatened to kill themselves
    Heya, Yeah but she wasn't really in love with Peeta, though was she, I mean come on the best friend vs the guy who once chucked a half a loaf of bread at her feet, besides it was a bluff, she new what the games master was like, Seneca, so she figured that he would fall for the whole death by berries bit,
    though if you ask me she isn't as much in love with best friend so much now, she'll probably end up with the other one, I haven't actually read the books myself yet, I figured I'd wait, if you read the books first, and then watch the movie, the rather than focusing on watching it to see what they've done, your gonna be constantly comparing one to the other, of all the differences of the things that they've changed, and all the bits they've added, I prefer to be somewhat unbiased, what about you?

    The ending of World War Z came across as rushed to me which I found to be a disappointment.

    the start was good but tailed off half way through. imo

    Wasn't it re-imagined or somesuch, following 'artistic differences' or the like?

    Either way, it was like the ending to a completely different film.

    They originally wrote and part-filmed the last third of the film which was apparently so absurd that it had to be canned and then re-done on a budget. That's why the first 2/3 of WWZ are mega big budget with helicopters and explosions - and the last 1/3 is (literally) Little Britain with zombies.

    One of the tells that got me interested is that if you watch the credits, it shows Matthew Fox there - he's the main guy out of Lost. I went all the way back through the film and couldn't see him, so I looked it up. It turns out he's one of the soldiers in the helicopter that rescues Brad Pitt & family from the top of the building. Why would they need a big actor for a five second role where you don't even see his face?

    Well, apparently it goes like this:

    In the original script, Brad Pitt's plane flies to Russia where he gets inducted into some old Soviet-style human wave zombie fighting.

    His family get kicked off the ship, but the camp in Canada isn't very nice - she ends up being the girlfriend of Matthew Fox who gives her protection and privileges for her family in exchange for sex.

    Brad Pitt finds out, but can't really do anything about it. Over many months, he becomes an expert at fighting zombies with Russians, using some special axe (this is something that come from the original WWZ books). And at the end, Brad Pitt and his band of Russians literally invade the United States from an amphibious landing - ostensibly to liberate it, but he's really there to rescue his family from Matthew Fox.

    It worked out so badly that they canned it and refilmed the ending at an abandoned Viagra factory in Kent using whoever they had around - basically Peter Capaldi.

    There's also another joke in the credits - (and bear in mind that World War Z is 2 years old) : Peter Capaldi is credited as "W.H.O. Doctor"

    The ending of Bring It On really disappointed me. It should have ended in the showers after the competition.

    I'm not sure if this was pointed out, but the Hunger Games is a trilogy... so the first film technically isn't 'an end' with the storyline, it's just a break. It's the trigger point of the rebellion, where people START to fight back against their oppressors, in the only way they can where they will reach everyone, Snow had no choice as even the Capitol would be appalled if they killed them both or made 'Romeo and Juliet' fight to the death - it's a brutality that even they won't permit..... that and the hunger games themselves for most of them are 'normal' to them and an annual thing, but it's something they perceive as normal, as it was their punishment for the last rebellion and they feel the Capitol is justified in doing it - albeit completely insane to our standard of 'normal')

    If there were no further movies I would have equally found it a bit silly, but if you watch the other 2 - or hell, read the books! - then you'll see the arc of the storyline much more clearly.... now the end of the third book was daft... I assume they will stick with it for the movie but I was disappointed with it - I won't say why as I don't want to spoil it and I know some people liked it. But it does sit well with the dystopian society and how it's not as easy to get 'out' of it as you would think.

    I agree with IT (hilarious! so very early 90's) and Inception but I liked Shutter Island.... The Life of Pi irritated me.... yes I also agree with My Sister's Keeper and in the same vein Confessions of a Shopaholic was ruined as it was meant to be in London and the book has distinct British humour, and it lost that (despite Isla Fisher being funny) - along the same lines which SHOULD have been so much better was the His Dark Materials - Northern Lights one (why they called it the golden compass?! is that because of the US again?) they didn't make the follow ups so it is totally pointless to watch - like the Dark is Rising - the script for that also ruined by being made 'American' and random stuff not from the book.

    And I really dislike it when they make an 'American' version of brilliant movies - prime example being The girl with the dragon tattoo... seriously, I don't believe for a second that they won't read the subtitles or watch a dubbed version I refuse to believe Americans are as stupid as people make out, that they 'need' their own version of brilliant foreign language films... or tv shows for that matter... Shameless was brilliant because it WAS Britain and the US version sucks, but maybe American's feel the same way about the UK one?! who knows... but can you imagine if we tried making a British version of like Grey's Anatomy? they'd go nuts about it.... lol....

    Like this thread... v entertaining.

    When a stranger calls.
    The protagonist in the movie had gone crazy because the "stranger" made her feel frightened while she was babysitting!Not the ending I'd expect!

    Oh how did I forget Citizen Kane! So many people rave about it and it's awful plot-wise.... the cinematography, I appreciate but the whole Rosebud bit... I was so annoyed I'd sat through hours of it for that!


    Pretty much all the bad movies end like kids bad story writing "And it was ALL a DREAM...."

    If you listen to the director's commentary on the DVD, on the day they filmed the bikini car wash scene - every single male member of production or crew or even loosely connected to the film turned up to work.

    Harry Potter, worst ending ever.

    Spoiler:
    Show


    Seriously, after all that battles and all the tortures, murders and things like that, his battle against a giant snakes was way better than the final one. Since, in the final battle, they just stood there, motionless. I mean, seriously, he's a half-blood, why don't you just shoot him with a gun or summon a giant flaming, whatever to defeat him but noooo, Harry had to use a disarming spell. Afterall, it's just a killing curse. Seriously!?

    Sorry, I got carried away.

    Yeah the fight itself was a bit dull, but to be honest I don't think it needed anything fancy like guns. I was so overcome with emotions and when Voldy dissolved into the air I just can't describe the feeling I got. I think it was a perfect effortless ending.

    I know I am going to repeat the same one but I felt that day I made a waste of time watching The Hunger Games- Catching Fire. The spent the whole time of the movie travelling side to side and when it is finally starting some action in the island (to call it something) is the end. Really???!! Are you joking, she couldn't doing it before?!
    I felt like a spent my precious afternoon watching a preview of the next chapter. Completely disappointed.

    Shawshank Redemption. Still an amazing film but I thought the ending ruined it a bit. I don't know why, I just thought it just did. It wasn't a big disappointment but compared to the film up until that point it seemed like it
    What?! How else could it have ended?

    The whole point of the film was "fear can set you prisoner, hope can set you free."

    It's an amazing ending!
