Top 10 Worst Ways to End a MovieThese are some of the worst ways I can think of to end a movie.
The Spongebob episode of the Krusty Krab ended with the narrator saying "The secret krabby patty formula I" then credits.
It's a pretty lazy way to end any movie.
Even though it's not a movie, Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans is a great example of how killing off the main character at the end can ruin something.
Oh, I don't know...Even though Misery only had two main characters, somehow I didn't feel cheated when Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates) was killed off.
I actually disagree. This isn't overused to the point of it being a big cliche, and not all movies have to end all happy
Depends on the execution of the character's(s') death. Gladiator is a good example of the (SPOILER) main character dying and still maintaining a satisfying ending/
Especially if a sequel will never be made.
So you hated the ending of Iron Man?
Unless there's a sequel
I actually laughed out loud just from reading this because I could totally picture that. I feel it would work if Simon Pegg did it.
Done to death in horror movies especially Unfriended...
This explains itself.
One of my least favorite cliches, this is just a cheap way to pull an ending to a movie out of your ass.
This has been done to death...
While the Shrek movies mostly used this method a lot when concluding their movies, it's been done to death in many other animated movies. Most of the time, I'm fine with it if it's relevant to the plot or it's well-executed, but other times, it just feels tact on and more like kid-pandering. That means you, The Emoji Movie...
This has been done to death.
No movie I can think of has done this yet but still it would be a cheap way to end a movie.
Protagonists learn and change like normal people and if they don't learn or improve then they're terrible protagonists.
If this happens in a movie, you know you screwed up.
Imagine that you're watching a movie, and you understand the plot before the movie ends. Then, the movie ends with a 10-minute monologue explaining the entire plot, while giving you the exact same information that you already found out yourself during the movie.
There's been enough Michael Bay movies like that.
Some movies do deserve an ending where the protagonists achieved what they set out to do and are rewarded. Many great stuff like "The Shawshank Redemption", "The Lord of the Rings" and many of the Mario games have happy endings and wind up praised.
Yes, there are darker endings that do work as well, but happy endings are sometimes deserved depending on what genre a fiction is based upon.
Like what happens in every Disney sequel from Wreck it Ralph 2 onwards. Even Frozen 2 had this.
