I've never seen this film, partly because someone told me that they changed the hopeful ending of the short story to a horrible one.  Buggedout

It's true, they did.  But it was extremely well done.  If you don't mind being a little depressed for a while, I'd suggest watching it.

Also, I didn't really like the ending to Rocky Horror.  Whenever I watch it now, I always stop it at the end of Wild and Untamed Thing.  In my mind, Frank, Brad, Janet, Columbia, and Rocky are all still dancing the floor show. Smile

Got to agree with several lsited here including The Mist, Deadly Friend and the Matrix Trilogy. All were pure Hollywood BS.

The remake of The Day The Earth stood Still had an ending that not only was complete BS but it was so bad it even ruined watching the original for me.

I've mentioned it numerous times on here: The Last Broadcast.  Worst ending in film history, in the sense of damaging the film as a whole anyway.

I have to agree. Up until the last 15 or so minutes, it's a decent film then that ending happens which makes no sense.

Dude, I totally overlooked this one.  What the hell were they thinking?  I mean the story kind of roped me in and at the end I literally shouted, "Oh COME ON!" at the end.

Monster A Go-Go: I never seen such a disjointed ending that just left me frustrated.  It made no sense whatsoever!


The first thing I thought of when I read the thread title.  So, the movie never happened, or...  Question

Not a stupid ending or even a stupid film, but the ending of Andrew Davis'The Package with Gene Hackman and Tommy Lee Jones nearly made me bite my tongue in half. I never saw that coming.

The Mist (2007): There are moments when this one is pretty cool especially it's monsters hidden in the fog motif but this film's ending is so nasty it pretty much ruins the whole film.
[/quote]

from my, humble, point of view, the ending was horrible.  i can see a movie adaptation not reproducing a book in an exact sense, but part of "The Mist"s allure is the cryptic book ending, with the band driving south and the reader left to wonder how it ends for them.

i dont have a problem with a director taking some creative liberties....but darabont is not on a level to completely rewrite a very good short story.  did he rewrite the green mile's ending?  FAIL!

I think they tried a little too hard in the "leave the audience wanting more" department.

I agree that that ending was a bit too much shock for shock's sake, but I understand why they did it. The short story's ending really just does not work in a movie. Movies tend to have to work as a complete package, whereas short story's strengths are usually evocativeness. I still have problems with the ending, but I really enjoyed the rest of the movie.

If you can find it, "The Mist" was made into a radio drama starring William Sadler, who was also in the film. Check it out, it was pretty good, and there's an absolutely hilarious product placement involving Skippy Peanut Butter.

well mofo (he! i'd get punched if i said that to anyone else!) i'll agree to disagree.  an open ending of a film is nothing to fear and has been pulled off many times (and pulled off well).  the real climax is within the store between humans (the old "humans must destroy themselves" theme).  i think it was more a case of darabont wanting his stamp on a project rather than the ending of the short story being un-theatric (yes, i made that word up!).  anywho, nothin but love!  Wink

Oh, naturally. The broad spectrum of viewpoints is one of the greatest things about this board. (Of course, if Darabont wants to make his own stamp, he may want to consider, just possibly, trying something else other than adapting a King work.)

A bit different from the rest of the films mentioned, but the film Ghost Town with Ricky Gervais and Tea Leoni is a fairly cute film, but the final bit of dialogue in the film made me visibly cringe. SPOILERS FOLLOW.

Ricky Gervais, who is a dentist, talks to Tea Leoni:

TL: "It hurts when I smile."
RG: "I can help you with that."

Such clumsy writing! Ufh. Just painful.
