Forums - Movies Discussion - Worst movie ending ever?

While not the worst Super 8 has a very disappointing ending that kinda kills the whole mood of the movie.

What didn't you like about Super 8's ending?



I have to go with The Last Jedi. The whole movie was pretty bad, but especially the last half hour or so. The rehashed battle of Hoth. Rose crashing into Finn to save him, which in reality would have left them both stranded in the path of the enemy which would have got them both killed, then the super awkward kiss as the base Finn was trying to save blows up behind him, where Finn looked incredibly uncomfortable. Luke’s anti-climactic battle with Kylo Ren and death. It was the only Star Wars movie I ever saw in theater where members of the audience groaned audibly, some even left early.



Every horror movie that ends with the predictable "lol jk the monster/villain is still alive and the main character(s) die" cliche.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Edge of Tomorrow (sometimes called Live, Die, Repeat), but everything before it was so good that the movie is still worth watching multiple times.

Avengers Endgame

I did not sign up for a 10 year ride to see the most interesting character die.

I thought it was spot on. RDJ had been doing that role for 10 years, you knew it was not going to last and how would they explain in future films that Iron Man just wouldn't be around anymore? Recast him? No way.

He went out a hero and did it in a way that was very much him. Plus, the emotional impact was very real after all this time and all these movies. Can't imagine a better solution.

This has the 'Hive Mind' they all fall trope sadly. 

https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HiveQueen

It's even listed under examples.

"If our heroes manage to kill or incapacitate the Hive Queen, they usually take out the entire hive mind in the process, or at least make the individual members incapable of fighting."

After the first hour and bit of the film being a cool/weird Ground Hog Day thing, it suddenly turned into this at the end.



Hmm, pie.

It's been a while but I didn't appreciate the last minute characterization that the monster is just a very violent version of E.T. who just wants to get home.

Strange Wilderness

Had recently watched Grandma's Boy, which ended up being a fantastic comedy that I wasn't expecting. Decided to give this a shot since it seemed similar and had some of the same cast. There were like 2 funny jokes and the rest of the movie sucked. But the end, oh boy. The main characters are talking, and then they just start laughing. And the movie ends. It ends on a literal outtake. They couldn't come up with anything better than an outtake to end the movie. Terrible.

I'll just say this: at least those movies HAD a monster/villain, unlike

Spoiler!
Catacombs, where they reveal that the monster they've been teasing all throughout the film isn't real and it was all just a prank.

I lul'ed when the "twist" happened. An already shit movie that literally had nothing to show or say.
