Should have ended at the Freeze Frame with the coda of Goodwin receiving the text message as a sci-fi twist moment.
or maybe even just at the Freeze and have no text.

The gut-punch of the freeze frame is awesome and beautiful.

I LOVE that film, and while I do quite like the ending as it is, I agree that the freeze-frame would be a better ending. I actually thought the credits were about to roll at that point when I was in the cinema, so I was surprised when the film continued.

Still love the film, though.

Star Trek 2009

i felt the ending couldve done with more twists and nods to the (alternate) future. the whole coming back from the future was a bit of a McGuffin and when Kirk and Spock go over to the Narada and aboard Spock Primes ship they were basically going into the ‘Prime Universe’ and messing about with Next Generation/Prime stuff, - so i thought it wouldve been nice to have abit more resolution on the alternate universe/future (and especially Kirks as his upbringing got so screwed thanks to nero) and have it play more of a role in the conclusion.

e.g. When Kirk and Spock beamed over to the narada and Kirk went off looking for Pike. he comes to Neros computer consol and looks at the screen – on it is an image or footage of Shat Kirk (Wrath of Khan era in the red uniform) – the explanation being Nero has been checking up on his adversary/brushing up on starfleet history (like in the comic prequel ‘Countdown‘)– who Kirk is/what his thinking is like etc. (it would’ve vaguely tied in with Kirk saying earlier that Nero would know what they were up to as they were part of his history so lets be unpredictable )

NuKirk looks at it perplexed – theres something familiar about this guy but he cant stick around and check up on his alternate future as hes got to find Pike and get off the ship and its then he gets attacked by Ayel/Nero leading to the ‘I know your face….’ so itd have had that sense of wanting to look at hidden treasure/info but unable to due to the danger/time running out - as in the end of Raiders/Crystal Skull.

nothing big just a throwaway thing – abit like the Death Star cameo in Attack of the Clones. kirk would catch a fleeting glimpse of his alternate future before he gets his ass kicked (he was obviously curious as he asked Spock Prime in the ice cave).

It would’ve been a fun resolution to the whole 'will Shatner be in the movie' thing

also wouldve liked the Enterprise going through the black hole (cool 2001 Stargate like sequence) ending up in the 24th century and briefly sees the Enterprise E monitoring the event horizon (see last page of 'Countdown' and similar to 'Yesterdays Enterprise') or alternatively they could’ve had it be the alternate enterprise NCC 1701 but then is flung back into its own time/universe - like a tidel wave retracting...(to reinforce the idea that the alternate universe goes on and it isnt a new timeline overwriting it)……….

or if nero had figured out how to get back to his own time via the red matter after his earth destruction plan fails...kirk (on the narada now in the future) destroys the warp core and gets beamed out by Spock on the jelly fish. the Narada is destroyed and K&S head back into the blackhole to their own time before it closes..

as they leave they dont notice but we briefly see a ship that arrived to check out the disturbances... the Enterprise E

I know there was NO chance of that happening as they wanted this film to stand on it own but I felt it would’ve been cool to nod to whats come before at the end... even if it was just Kirk seeing a fleeting glimpse of the alternate future...

Two problems with your case,

1. Its been done before in 'Parallels' (TNG)

2. The vast majority of the audience (aside from the handful of hardcore Trekkies) wouldn't have a clue what was going on and would disconnect with the linear story.

This. God, that's one of the most depressing endings to a film that I've ever seen.



The depressing ending really spoils what could have been a great film.




I'm surprised people have mentioned the ending to this (and The Mist). Surely a happy ending where everyone survived would've ruined these films more? Dunno about anyone else but I want my horrors to have grim, depressing climaxes.
It was horror/sci-fi?But i agree.
Brilliant brilliant film,and the ending....
Strange,when i first seen it,i was aghast at the end,but now it´s a strength i feel.Commercial suicide,but artistic genius.

harry potter 7 part 2.
The ending 19 years later was laughable.
Ruined my experience of the movie, maybe next time elaborate on the characters that the HP series built up then finish their story-lines??




jobloffski -> RE: Not the ending you wanted (6/8/2011 1:20:01 PM)

The books are there for that. The 'coda' has a very specific purpose: to underline, yes, it is all over, and no, he's not coming back. Whether that holds forever, who knows, but Rowling wanted to be definitive, it's over. Shame that the director lacked the sense to see that visually, he had an insurmountable problem getting the ageing right, so should probably have shot the older version of the characters in extreme close ups to show ageing (lines, perhaps, flecks of grey, little bit of hair loss, enough for the impression of ageing to be created,then not had a full face reveal of the leads,, but have them seen from behind, still recognisably them, but no illusion shattering moment.

And, then perhaps a surreal crossfade, showing the characters at the age before the 19 year time jump, waving goodbye to their kids, and by implication to the audience. Cheesy, but does the job.




thetruth -> RE: Not the ending you wanted (6/8/2011 1:48:40 PM)

The last Potter was decent overall,but....
The main reveal was nonsense,undermined the whole series.
The ending was utter cheeseballs!

When they originally shot it, they all looked much older (the guys were all balding and the girls were REALLY wrinkly) and it was far too much. Besides, they're only 37ish in the epilogue (Ginny 36), which is roughly the same age Snape/Remus/Sirius are in the books, and nobody complained that they didn't have grey hair or wrinkles. With the exception of Remus, of course, who looked much older because of his affliction.

Sean Ventris is dead unfortunately. His fate was sealed when the bomb went off. Everyone else is saved though, at least in one pararell universe, The one in which Stevens is able to prevent the bomb on the train which Goodwin sends him back to after he id's the bomber and prevents the larger nuclear device from going off.

Goodwin then switches him off - which is the freeze frame moment but the the new universe continues beyond the 8 minutes and Stevens is free to live on in the other guys body.  The final scenes take place in this new universe - not the original one, which gives the "happy" ending a downbeat twist. There's another verison of Stevens that's still a part of the Source Code programme and is still going to be exploited.

I get the impression that everty time he's sent back it creates a new universe. There's infinite possibilities for what could happen. We just see one ending in which at least one verison of Stevens gets some peace. It's a lovely bittersweet ending.  Pretty sure poor Sean is dead in all of them though

Yeah, Sean is dead in all of them because he CAN'T be alive. The only way any of the people on the train survive is if Stevens goes back into someone's body, and they put him back in Sean's. If they don't put him in Sean's body, everyone on the train dies. When Stevens creates that new world where he saves the train, he can't then be brought out of Sean's body because that reality is not part of the Source Code (at least, I think that's how it works). As far as the female character is concerned (I forgot her name), Sean is still alive, but it's just his body with Stevens in it. Admittedly, this is potentially problematic, considering they will eventually run into someone who Sean knows and Stevens does not.

It didn't look great but it don't spoil it for me - by the sound of it, the original make-up would'be been dreadful.
One thing I couldn't help thinking when watching it though: surely one of the biggest franchises in cinema history could've found a few quid in their coffers for some Benjamin Button-style, realistic ageing effects? To waste money on a crappy 3D conversion in favour of actually, y'know, making your film look good is faintly depressing.

I know it isn't a great film, but I hated the way they just killed off the boyfriend so randomly so John Cusack's character could slide back into the family. He didn't really change through the film, he didn't develop, but his ex-wife just took him back at the end and seemed to forget she'd been engaged to another bloke not ten minutes ago.

I rather like Gone with the Wind (much to my suprise - I thought I'd loathe it). But seriously, ending it when he leaves her would have been such a ballsy ending  - also, it would have had the best eight last words ever in film. It's a fantastic line, but having Scarlett's cheesy speech follow it just doesn't work.

I caught Eden Lake for the first time last night. Loved it. I thought I would hate it but it really is an effective little film.

It's preposterous and silly (of course Fassbender would just have a wander into an empy house to have a gander!) but that ending is totally unexpected. I honestly thought we'd see some kind of escape and follow up retribution but no, just some rather horrid screams and deletion of evidence. Really put me on a downer. Great ending.
