The Departed (absolute finality) and No Country For Old Men (ambiguity).

Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

I thought No Country For Old Men was really good until they just decided to quit writing and rolled credits. Weirdest ending I've seen.

House of Sand and Fog


"Claire's Song" is submitted (with Audio)

Audio also has been added to "The Plain Girl"

"I gotta run now, I'm late"

Travel craziness - providing much material for Chapter Three of "Dick Wrencher and the Mystery of the Zen Mistress"!

The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas's is one of the ones I'd put as the best.

Also the Sky Crawlers and Grave of the Fireflies (I've never been able to watch the latter twice :( )

Teased and Tormented -My very first story and competition entry is now up!

Definitely would have to be "The Departed". One of the best movies I have ever seen.

I think "The Family Man" is a really good movie. You don't know if it's a happy ending or not

Casablanca, hands down. With honorable mention to Cannonball Run. Everyone knows the traditional happy ending would have been Dean and Sammy winning the race.

Romanov: The Imperial Family a Russian film about the last years of the Imperial family when Nicholas II abdicated to the murder of his family and their servants. This is a more accurate execution scene then other films which is based on the Russian imperial family. Especially when the guy shot one of the daughters under the chin.



Axl - Take a look at our piercing menu.

Daria - I don't think that's how you spell "uvula."

Axl - That's not "uvula."

From: "Daria" episode "Pierce Me"

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Knowing that it's not a perfect ending but hoping they make movies for the other two books :P
