Hello, Back again with another mystery movie. Several years ago I caught the last minute of a movie which contained a final scene of a spaceship flying over a town (leaving town). All you could see was the bottom of the ship which was flat and contained a lot of greebles and was, I think, bronze in color. I'm pretty sure there was some cool music playing too. It looked like a late 80s or early 90s movie.

I wasn't able to get any other info because it was one of those deals when they run the credits real fast , in a compressed window no less, so that they can get to the next movie. I hate when they do that.Anyway, any help identifying this movie is appreciated.

Thats a tough one... It seems like a typical ending with most UFO/ visiting alien movies...

Yeah, there are a lot of movies that seem to end like that but this one just seemed so stylish that it makes me think the rest of the movie might be good too.

I 'll have to check out the endings of the Critters movies. I know it's not the first one.

There are couple of other details that might help : 1) It took place at night 2) The spaceship is huge and is flying off toward the upper right side of the screen.

Thanks for the responses. I would have replied earlier but I got busy and forgot to check back.

I don't know if it was night or not, but Starman maybe?

Great movie but Starman definitely isn't it. The ship I remember was flat on the bottom and square edged.

It was a stab. I just figured since you saw just the very ending and Starman ends with the ship leaving and that's it, I thought it was worth a shot.

Thanks for the help anyway. I just wish I was able to provide a better description... I literally saw just the last couple seconds of the movie.

I actually thought the movie I was looking for was Neon Maniacs because they flashed that on the screen as this was ending, but I watched Neon Maniacs before I came here and that didn't have any spaceships in it. It seemed like it was a double feature they ran on tv a couple of years ago.

What are you afraid of? It's only rock n' roll.

I thought it might be one of the critters movies as well.

Here is the ending from the first Critters - However it's not at night.

The only other Critters ending that involves a spaceship is Critters 4

Definitely not those two. However, I have been looking, unsuccessfully, to find the endings of Critters 2 and 3 without having to order through Netflix. If anyone has those dvds and is willing to check out the ending I'd appreciate it.

Neither Critters 2 or Critters 3 ends with a space ship flying away.  TeddyR

Well I guess that solves that problem. Thanks. I guess the mystery continues for now.

The only thing that comes to my mind is The Tommyknockers.

So far I haven't been able to find any pictures of the Tommyknockers spaceship to verify.
