Alternate Endings

Posted in Links at 12:00 pm by Sam

I ran across this wonderful essay about endings, twist endings, and alternate endings. It contains spoilers for The Sixth Sense and Casablanca, and you do not want to spoil those movies for yourself if by some miracle you do not already know how they end. But if you have, check out this article. I would actually recommend skipping down to the spoiler warning and read from that point, unless you’re interested in talk about dinner theater.

    One alternate ending I really liked was for Tony Scott’s “Man on Fire” (which I unashamedly love) and can be found on the DVD.

    SPOILERS:
    Instead of simply dying in the car journey, Creasy arrives to meet Pita’s kidnapper and during a conversation they have he inexplicably blows up and kills himself and all of the baddies. It turns out that he had used an anal bomb on himself! Genius!

    I especially enjoy videos gratis’s contribution to the discussion. Such a well-thought-out comment cannot be overlooked.
