Ok heres one...One Hour Photo.  Does anyone have a clue what happened at the end of that film?  That and what was truly behind Sy's madness?  He mentions something about someone never taking or making children do certain things.  Was he abused as a kid?  Why wasn't there pictures in the camera?  Why did he make those people take those pictures if he wasn't going to use them?


The link below may shed some light on this for you:

I also wondered what was up with the end of that movie.  It is somewhat confusing.

I think Robin Williams mentioned that he had hepatitis as a child? There are only a few ways to get that.

Good god man.  Now I'm more confused.   Buggedout  In all seriousness, thanks for the link Ash, it gave some great insight.  Heres what I kind of think is the answer;

Sy, a probable victim of child abuse, found his happiness in the photos of a model family's life.  With that family destroyed by a promiscuous husband, the odd photos of random stuff in his room represent what he has in his life after his crime which is nothing.  Yes he took the pics of the naughty husband and his slutty friend but there wasn't any film in the camera.  Why, well he mentions that photos should only capture happy moments. 

I'll have to watch it again...probably will change my mind.

In Neverending Story, I can never make out the name Sebastian yells out at the end.

He calls "Moonchild" which was his mother's name (apparently she was raised by hippies). Its damn near impossible to make out in the film, but thats the name he uses in Michael Ende's novel.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End - Actually I didn't get much of anything in this movie. It felt like they smacked about three different movies together.

1408 - Did Mike ever escape the room? Or is he still trapped? What does the voice on the recording mean? Though the short story is more direct about it, but the film left me wondering (as I assume it was intended to do).

I always felt the film was about the main character's decent into madness. The room never existed, it was all in his head.

I'm with you. Han shot first. Then Lucas re-edited it and (IMHO) ruined one of the best scenes in the film. Look at it this way. You know someone is out to kill you, would you shoot first, or let that person have the first shot? If you had any sense, like Han did, before Lucas re-edited the scene, you'd shoot first. But Lucas does not know enough to leave something alone, when there is nothing wrong with it.

How the heck could Greedo have fired and MISSED? At a whole 3 feet away, firing a weapon which, if like every other weapon in the series, fires very, very straight. No, Greedo didn't fire first, when GL made the movie, he put that scene in to show that Han was a ruffian, someone rough around the edges to say the least, and not to be trifled with. LATER, when he did the re-make, I think he was trying for a kinder, gentler Han.

As for debatable endings, The Matrix comes to mind. Just what was and is reality? what happened to the Matrix and Zion? The archetect says everyone in Zion would die, did they? There was also something said that led people to believe that what we thought was real life in Zion was simply existence in another, higher level of the Matrix.

Hollywood Knights: Did Jimmy make it back from Viet-Nam OK? Are the Knights still around in years to come? Did Clark ever grow a moustache? Did Mrs. Freedman ever get the taste out of her mouth? Did Nevel ever finally get some? What about Dudley? Did the Freeman girl really have an abortion, and did she really give the football team VD? Why can't I have a cool-@$$ed 57 like Tony Danza, or maybe the AC Cobra?

OOh! thanks! good to know.  Now I can sleep better.  I swear the name he yelled out had 45 syllables.. I'll go with Moonchild.

The ending to 'Session 9' is fairly confusing.

I can't remember much about the film other than it being shot in an infamous old insane asylum and the ending was quite confusing.

I liked all the character subplots going on, but it wasn't really executed right. It was too long of a film that went back and forth and ended up getting very confusing to me.

Actually, that's a really good possibility. I hadn't really thought of that before.
