    Which way: bad movie / good ending or good movie / bad ending.

    I've always actually like Doom. Its an enjoyable popcorn flick that entertains throughout. Its not deep or profound but its not meant to be.

    I came here to say this, just probably not as well. I had read King's short story it was based on and that actually made the ending even more of a knife to the heart. That ending was numbingly good, I only wish the build to it would've been as good. Perfect for this thread though.

    Were talking about the one with The rock and Karl Urban? Havent seen that in a long time. But yea I'm curious which way he meant it. Cause that ending with the FPS POV I assume was either completely hated or some people maybe liked it for being something original. But yea I dont recallt the movie being very good. Maybe its time for a rewatch

    Superman IV has a rather fun ending, at least that bit is a good thing to say about it.

    Batman & Robin is one of the best bad movies out there, and the ending is strangely good for what the movie is like.

    The Fallen spoilers:
    Why go through an entire movie to see the hero beat the big bad supernatural evil, only for it to walk away at the end. So everything was for nothing. Hate that.
    end of spoilers
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Its a not very good generic teen sex comedy from the 80's that got lost in the shadow of Fast Times at Ridgemont High which came out two weeks later. Its your typical teens want to get laid movie with all kinds of R rated hijinks throughout. The main character is named Gary and he's just ordinary with nothing particularly special about him. One of his friends is named Rick and the jock who gets all the girls. Gary falls for a girl named Helen but naturally she is into Rick. Helen ends up pregnant by Rick who dumps her wanting nothing to do with this "slut" who got pregnant. In rushes Gary to comfort Helen and he even pays for her abortion and helps her recuperate. She invites him to her birthday party and Gary goes thinking he's finally got a chance. He walks in only to find Helen making out with Rick. There is an incredibly painful 30 seconds (that feels like hours) where you just see Gary's heart breaking as he watches and Helen and Rick then notice him standing there. He then walks away as the 80's song Just Once (perfect song for the moment) starts to play. Gary drives away in tears and the credits roll.

    The movie would be utterly forgottable except for the ending. Because we all either have been a Gary or know someone who was a Gary. For me, I was a Gary. I fell in love but she chose someone else. I was devastated. About a year later, having not seen or talked to her in nearly that whole time, she finds me and breaks down in tears about how abusive the guy was and how he had raped her a few days earlier saying she made the wrong choice when she picked him over me. We spent most of the next week together (nothing physical, I was trying to be there as a friend not some creepo). A week later she went back to him and by facebook is still with him now over 20 years later. Haven't talked to her since then but it still bothers me to this day that she chose a rapist over me. I'm married to a great woman now but in some ways I know I've never gotten over this and probably never will. So I think I know exactly how Gary felt in that moment which is why this ending resonates with me because it was so realistic in how life often actually turns out rather than the fairy tale ending most Hollywood movies give you.

    Boy oh boy. Amazing story you shared.

    And your assessment of the movie was spot on. The movie is just one of despair and FINALLY Gary gets his girl. And then James Ingram starts singing and it is OVER. The look on his boy's face. The first 90 minutes was, as you say, bad generic -- they all got crabs, I seem to recall. The last two minutes make LAV a classic.
