Best ending to a film ever?
Watched 1978's Invasion of the Body Snatchers last night for the first time in years. The creepy and sinister ending has to be up there with Charlton Heston's Planet of the Apes as a possible tie for the best film ending I can remember. Am I right or wrong?

A truly horrific movie. In more ways than one. John Carpenter a film maker who knew how to close out a film. Halloween. The Fog. The Thing. Christine. Big Trouble in Little China. And They Live. All great endings. And he isn't a bad musician and composer either.!

Lindsay Andersons - "If" - 1968

The violent shootout at the public school - filmed at Cheltenham College if I recall.

Given the political climate of the time Anderson created a masterpiece on a limited budget.

Saw it in the cinema with a then girlfriend, and the ending rendered us almost speechless.

Wasn't resolved. One of them certainly was, but what fate awaited them?

’dm. By far the best moment in any Star Wars movie since the original trilogy. And especially since George sold up to the Mouse House.

Rogue One

To be pedantic, not the absolute final scene, but near enough when Darth Vader appears in the spacecraft's corridor.

Re: Best ending to a film ever?
M&P. Both of you are correct. I was mentioning to Northern about the ENDING of the film’s he put up. A classic film. Stone’s masterpiece.

Defoe is shot by Berenger, however he survives and is eventually gunned down by the VC, witnessed by Sheen from the helicopter.
Sheen kills Berenger in retribution.

Northern. Dafoe wasn’t killed at the end of Platoon. It was Berenger’s Sgt Barnes who was killed off. Still. It’s a classic. And always worth a mention in a film thread.


If memory serves me right, Barnes shoots Ilias in the jungle and then as they are retreating on helicopter Charlie Sheen looks out and sees Ilias running from the tree line chased by VC and he drops to his knees whilst being repeatedly shot and killed.

The first ever Saw movie was a great ending but favourite has to be Seven.

Re: Best ending to a film ever?
Pulp fiction is a weird one with its structure but both the actual and chronological endings are a redemptive arc for two protagonist. Both Jules and Butch get to ride off into the sunset for new lives having done good things.

One I love is Ravenous for very different reasons..

pulp fiction



Good shout!

A lot of the Tarantino films have good endings, Resevoir Dogs, Inglorious Basterds, Hateful Eight and my favourite Django Unchained
