Personally, Iīd put Memento, Se7en, Shawshank Redemption in the top spots, many of the movies from the top I havenīt seen so I may be wrong. Also I wonder why Fight Club isn't present.

As for the no 1. I have to admit the ending did scare the shit outta me when I was a kid, but I don't really see it as no 1 material.

Why's One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest not up there? That ending is definetly good enough for that list. I agree with Memento and Shawshank, but there's a really high concentration of really old movies on that list that I've not seen. I think American Beauty might even be worth a spot on that list too.

Definitely agree with Erwin. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is top 10 material, at the very least.

That list is full of fail. Where is The Empire Strikes Back or The Godfather Part I? I also don't know if I agree with Seven being on there. That ending just left a bad feeling in my mouth. I don't agree with The Wizard of Oz being on there at all. Planet of the Apes should be higher. That ending was awesome, and you didn't really see it coming.

Overall, pretty bad list.

What about the ending to Revenge of the Sith? That twist totally blew me away.

empire strikes back deserves a spot, probably not the godfather though, it wasn't hella shocking or anything. i was expecting Micheal to take revenge after his father died. having said taht, the godfather is still easily the greatest movie ever.

L.A. Confidential was a damn good ending too.

What the fuck is the italian job doing there? The ending wasn't that great, hell the movie wasn't that great, if it weren't a-list actors it easily could've been a B-movie, something you'd rent on a slow wednesday.

Leon should be up there as well or American Psycho for that matter.

I think they meant the 1969 version of the The Italian Job, but I've seen neither so who knows.

the 2003 version was a remake of the 1969, haven't seen the 69 version either, the endings however I understood were the same.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid should not be #2. That ending expressed nothing but an unforeseen end to a pretty normal movie; nothing awe-inspiring. Basically the heroes get killed in a shoot-out, that's it. Lame.

Some movies I think should be up there:

Saw (by far)
Donnie Darko
Scarface
A Fistful of Dollars (by far)
Once Upon a Time in the West (by far)
The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (by far)

Yeah, I could agree with the Godfather. And Planet of the Apes should be higher.

At least they didn't put up "No Country For Old Men" or "Return of the King" for that matter...

Man did that movie really come out in 2003? I didn't realize it was that old.

TnC No Country for Old Men was a fucking masterpiece and so was its ending.

I have to disagree from a certain standpoint. The artistic nature of the ending is the fact that there is no ending, but then is it really the greatest ending ever? It is a great ending and at the same time there is no ending. By impulse I hated the ending the first time I saw it, it took me a long time to accept the ending (which in itself is the true brilliance of the ending, but at the same time there is no ending.) Think about it.

I don't have as much time to write about this right now as I'd like, cuz I gotta go. But just real quick, there's an ending for all three characters.

Llewellyn Moss allows his lust for money to overcome his desire to keep his family safe, and he ends up losing the money and failing to protect his family in the process.

Anton Chigurh has spent his whole life hiding from the moral responsibility for his actions by telling himself either that everything is chance and therefore he doesn't actually make the horrible choices he does (the coin flip), or that he is killing people only because their decisions in life all lead them to that point, and so he is some kind of agent of fate. By refusing to call heads or tails, Moss's wife exposes him for the fraud that he is. This visibly disturbs him, and while he does kill her, he is hit by a car shortly thereafter, and forced to rely on the charity of two young boys to escape. The aura of indestructible evil that had followed him throughout the film is gone forever. He has been exposed and lost his power.

Tommy Lee Jones' character (can't remember the name) is the only one of the three protagonists that consistently tries to do good. In the end, he fails to defeat evil, and has two conversations (one with the fat sheriff, one with his uncle) about how discouraged he feels. He retires, a defeated man. But in the end he has the dream of his father (also a lawman) carrying on a torch into the night, to make a fire surrounded by the blackness. Even in a world consumed by evil (the darkness) there is a value in fighting for what is right (the flame), even after you realize you can never truly "win".

Those are just my hurried thoughts on it, gotta go now. No Country for Old Men is probably my favorite movie.
