Watchmen was good. I agree.

I think Rocky may be the best movie without a traditional happy ending in my opinion.

This was another good one that left me with a 'what the fuck' sad feeling at the end.

The Others (Nicole Kidman)

Or

The Departed (Jack Nicholson)

Both great endings and very unexpected!

My favourite movie is Snatch. I don't think its ending could be classed as a "traditional happy ending".

I don't think I've seen the film, but I've read the story and it made me go AAARGH! It seemed so damned pointless

Robert Altman's "The Player." It starred Tim Robbins and the bad guy got the girl and happy ending.

Shit, you know what.. That one shocked me too at the end. never saw it coming, it makes sense it would happen that way but the way it is edited together is fucked up.

But under its own circumstances, wasn't this ending a fairly happy resolution? Same with Sling Blade, really. In both movies, the crisis resolved itself in arguably the best realistic way.

Come to think of it...those two movies are really similar thematically, too, right down to the ending.



sniff, sniff.....sad10 Great movie, though.
