Favourite film openings and endings

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
One of my favourite endings has to be The Devils Rejects. Even though the killers are sadistic and crazy the film kind of makes up sympathise with them and them meeting a huge blockade of police to Lynrd Skynrd (sp) Free As A Bird is awesome.

Openings? Hmmm, i quite liked Harry Potter 7 with Bill Nighy's eyes close up on the screen as he gives his speech but i think its his performance that makes that.

Thoughts?

    I cant think of any off hand, i think shit endings are worse than good endings are good if you catch my drift.

    Theres nothing worse than a "fade out" into the ether of nothingness, open endings dont end at all!

    Theres also the occasional case of the sneaky little "cancel out" like in wolf creek, if everyone just got killed then how did this "true story" get out...

    I'm going to show my lack of film knowledge and say the end of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. If only because I was totally not expecting it and it's the only film to ever make me cry.

    Idgaf, I loved that movie.
