2001: A Space Odyssey
The star child does it every time.
This is Darth Dimi in 2006: GIMME MORE OF THIS BOND RIGHT NOW!
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers '78
Sends chills down my spine every single time.
The Dark Knight
"A watchful protector. A Dark Knight." ----> (bring in Zimmer's percussion) "Directed by Christopher Nolan"
Better than sex.
Dawn Of The Dead '78
Peter makes the right decision after all. Okay, let's hear the Goblin score over the end titles now.
Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Bye bye, terminator. Man, almost makes me cry, this.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
Yeah I know, I'm an adult now. Sorry, most heart-warming ending to any film. Blame it on Spielberg and his manipulative style. But I love the man's work, and E.T. is the one film of his I consider the best.
Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back
With so much anticipation built for the third film, I'm glad I didn't have to suffer through 3 years of waiting in '80.
He has no lines of dialogue whatsoever. In other words, he's perfect. ;-)
One of my favorite movies and a great ending. A bit of an emotional one but overall happy.
Return of the Jedi
Our heroes win and stand together for our finale shot while beautiful music is playing in the background (rerelease version). Makes me want to go back and watch the saga all over again.
We finally get Q, Moneypenny, and a new M. The last line gets me pumped up for the next Bond adventure.
Something about this just always excites me. I always loved this ending.
The King's Speech
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home- A bit of an uneven movie, but best ending of any Trek film IMHO.
Escape From LA- say what you like about the humour in that one, the finale is the single biggest OTT anti-hero statement ever.
The Sting- You just have to see it.
Jaws- the end credits are just so peaceful.
Licence To Kill- A genuine Felix lighter. OMG.
The Road Home- Reduces me to tears. Beautiful.
Blade Runner- Not engaging your brain is not an option here.
Vanishing Point- There are no words. @-)
The Wicker Man. Really creepy and what a painful way to go. I also quite like the ending to the Nick Cage version because of the comedy value. "Not the bees!!!!"
Inception. I liked the ambiguous ending.
First Blood. That speech at the end is the best Stallone has ever been and proof (if Rocky wasn't proof enough) that he can act.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS(1956!)
LAWRENCE WHAT, LAWRENCE OF ARABIA????
These would be mine. Nice picks gentlemen.
Skyfall - It just feels so right.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service - *through tears* Is this still a Bond film?
Inception - The ambiguous ending (which isn't even that ambiguous) doesn't matter. Cobb is happy finally. Perfect ending.
The Dark Knight - Chills. Chills every time. Every. Time. No other film can do that for me.
The Dark Knight Rises - A comic book movie made me tear up.
The Prestige - Wait, what? Props for actually going there.
The American - Props for properly depicting a realistic depressing ending. Makes the movie for me.
The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly - How has this not been mentioned?
Gravity - Totally thought it was set up for a sequel to be titled:
The Enforcer "Maxwell!"
Batman 1989 "He gave us this signal!"
The Fugitive "Richard, it's time to stop running!"
Die Hard "I hope that wasn't a hostage."
The French Connection "You shot Mulderig."
Bullit- "Frank, we must all compromise."
Big Trouble in Little China - Jack Burton does his thing.
Live and Let Die - Love the fight on the train and Baron Samedi sat on the train.
The Burbs - love the final scenes of this film, somebody must love this film on here please?
Great Escape - Love Mcqueen being back where he belongs bouncing that ball.
"You met me at a very strange time in my life..."
Bye Bye skyscrapers....cue The Pixies...
Have to add this one. First the best line that Craig ever uttered: I'm out of bullets
Then him walking into the "sunset" with Swann.
And then the perfectness that is him driving away with Swann in the most iconic car ever.
And the music starts playing....
The Godfather Part II: From the incredibly bleak climax to the final flashback of how things used to be, the ending of this film delivers a very powerful punch. The first and third movies also have great endings, but Part II's sticks with me the most.
The Dark Knight: Just a classic. Great final montage, and just a good, unconventional ending. Doesn't hurt it's my favorite movie.
The Dark Knight Rises: IMO, incredibly satisfying ending to an amazing trilogy. Though Dark Knight is better overall, I just love the ending to Rises; gives me chills.
The Lion King: As full circle as it comes! Always have loved Disney animation, and Lion King is my favorite. Wonderful ending to a wonderful film.
Paths of Glory: This ending is for all those who doubt Kubrick's ability to tug on heartstrings. It was such a perfect ending to a terrific film, and it stayed with me long after watching. The soldiers' sad humming bringing hope for humanity back to Col. Dax... It's something that has to be watched.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: Great, great finish (what should have been the finish for the whole Indiana Jones series). Indy's last few conversations with his father and the ride into the sunset - great stuff.
Jaws: Oh man, this one was good. Few moments satisfied me more than one Brody blew up that shark. As Brody reunites with Hooper, it's the perfect ending. The best thing above all is John Williams' brilliant score.
Big Fish: Tim Burton's finest hour IMO. A really beautiful, fitting ending, going from Will's last scene with his father to the funeral. Great stuff.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service: A heartbreaker, but so, so memorable. Lazenby really nailed it this scene; frankly, I can't imagine Connery in his place at the moment of heartbreak.
Casino Royale: Just amazing. Bond finding White, shooting his leg, then giving the famous introduction - all just perfect. I love this ending.
Those are some of the biggest that come to mind for me. I might post more later.
All the above are fabulous - here are some others I enjoy
"This is no time to be rescued", cue grin and Shirley Bassey
For a Few Dollars More
Less grandiose than The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, but just as effective
Riding off into the sunset
"beginning of a beautiful friendship."
