The Top Ten

War of the Worlds (2005)

Till the end of the movie, I was waiting for the twist to turn to "Happy Ending", and at the end, I was happy it would be an sad ending movie, then bam! He found a method! Sad movie..

Why is Lord of the Rings in this top ten? It's the best end ever!

2The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Just curious which ending is being referred to because it had like 20 different endings..
I didn't even think this movie was going to end

3Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

4The Abyss
Epicly bad ending on an otherwise good movie. Perhaps the biggest drop off of all time.

Three hours of horribly boring dribble, only to leave us with the most predictable, cliched ending of all time.
Such a boring predictable lump of crap
All the people died on the boat and nobody gave a damn. It was so self centred on the two main characters. One of the cheesiest American remakes ever!
This was the most predictable ending in movie history.

6Lady In The Water
All I've gotta say about the ending. We've just been shyamalaned!


8Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
While knowing had a crap ending, I mean. Really. Ok, Spalkos eye blowing up was cool. But...
What the heck man seriously that Russian died from the dumb ark
So this Indiana Jones movie has aliens, ALIENS really?

9No Country for Old Men
This movie was perfect for the first 3/4. But the fact that they skipped over the big climax that finished a major character's arc almost ruined the whole thing. Even though the book did the same thing, what works in a book dosen't work the same in a movie and NCfOM is the best example.

Also, why is would Return of the King be #2? That's probably my all-time favorite movie, so what if it had five endings? The more the merrier

The Contenders

11The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

12Ocean's Eleven

13Pay It Forward

This defeated the whole purpose of the underlying message.

Help others out and you'll get hurt.

Great Ending *Sarcasm*


15The Mist
It makes no sence! You have an epic idea, epic monsters, good actors. and suddenly he just randomly kills his kid because he thinks there going to die. In the book the run to safety, even the man with that big moustache survives!
Everyone states that this movie is unbeatable masterpiece and even classic. I say WHAT? OK, it wasn't bad but it wasn't great at the same time. And yes, the ending was stupid


God I wanted to throw up, he killed everyone because he wanted to have the horrible death that never came when the military came and saved the day.
