Hi all,

I thought it would be nice to do a "little" thread..."what are your favourite end scenes to movies"...that you love...

My all time favourite is the one below...and I presume that Paul Adsett may agree...."Shane"...

Too many to mention Mark! Great topic BTW.

Off the top of my head
1/ Carrie with the hand from the grave....had to watch about 4 times before that stopped making me jump! Ha ha

And on a slightly softer note..
2/ Titanic
3/ and even Edward Scissorhands and ET still gets to my missus (and me if I'm honest te he) after countless times of watching.

Among many many others including Shane [Wink]

Nice one to start Mark but oh so difficult to list them all.
I would have to mention just one I guess, a film or story which has warmed my heart for oh so many years and I have the fondest memories of...

Scrooge 1970 Albert Finney.
The scene where he awakes after his visit with the final spirit and realises he has not missed Christmas, can change and help others.

When this film came out we had a family trip to the city to see it back then and I vividly remember hiding on the floor behind the seats when the ghosts came on screen. It's a favourite here and viewed many times throughout the year.

The Ark of the Covenant being pushed into that warehouse at the end of Raiders.

Just one final piece of brilliance in this amazing movie. [Smile]

I like endings which are open to interpretation. Time Travellers which ends with everything in a time loop. Most unfavourite ending and I am not alone in this for my generation is The Jungle Book . What a crap ending especially when you were 4!

The end of "Casablanca"! Not a single word out of place, everything is memorable!

I'd second the original Carrie. The timing was just right, still makes me jump - even without an audience in a cinema around me.

I think it's the music more than anything Brian that causes the jump. Soft gentle melodic tones leading up to the head stone graveyard scene after the horror of the ball then the killing of her mum but then suddenly after the hand from the grave, the music changes to the more familiar and expected horror style music associated with the usual knife wielding tones!

Great Brian de Palma film just as also is Christine and dressed to kill.
I love Brian de Palma films! [Smile]

SOME LIKE IT HOT is my all time favorite ending. Jack Lemmon and Joe E. Brown in the boat and Jack tells Joe that he's a man and Brown's famous reply. Laughing just thinking of it. A true classic and so very, very funny.

Where do I start?
For adventure: Connery and Ford riding into the sunset in 'Last Crusade'
For drama: The Schindler survivors/descendants visiting his grave in 'Schindler's List'
For comedy: OJ being catapaulted out of the stadium in 'The Naked Gun'.
These probably aren't my favourites but are the ones which came to mind first!

crack in the world 1965, very thought provoking, but ofcourse a massive chunk of the earth would never leave the planet because of gravity.

Paul Muni's last line as he disappears into the dark in " I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang" ____"I Steal!"

Charlton Heston's ride into legend as "El Cid"

I'm surprised no one has gone for "Tomorrow is another day." from GWTW

Ethel Merman falling on her butt at the end of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World"

-became a lot funnier after I became a Son-In-Law!

(The sad part is it's not included in Derann's 'scope digest.)

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

I always thought the way "Ironman" ended was very well done - I bet the crowd reaction in theaters was fun.

This one for me... shot in Vienna in 1948...the camera fixed in one spot, and with the camera film "rolling and rolling,...lots of it....just amazing to watch. [Wink]
