I was surfing the channels this afternoon and I saw that Midnight Run was on and ending. I watch that movie a lot and love the ending. DeNiro getting Charles Grodin to Los Angeles and then letting him go and Grodin talking off his money belt and giving it to DeNiro. Just love it! Probabally not that special to many others, but to me, it works and gets to me. Thus, the idea of this posting: Movies that have special endings for you and work for you. When they come on cable you will watch the ending just to see it again... All of you won't agree and that is okay...This one is a personal thing..... For your consideration:
a. Midnight Run. For the above reason.
b. Dances with Wolves. The winter scene, saying good by to the tribe and exchanging gifts. The
Kicking Bird or what ever he was called....up on his horse, waving his spear and yelling across the valley with all his might..."you are my brother" you are my brother. "I will never forget you" To me, powerful stuff.
c. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. The supprise of her showing up with the boat of people and that exchange and then taken them by the arm and saying, "Let's go get em, boys!" Classic!
d. High Noon. Gary Cooper throwing his badge on the ground in front of the city people and riding off with Grace Kelly.
e. Notting Hill. Roberts and Hugh Grant on the park bench. She's pregnant and they are reading. Just nice!
There are a ton more that you will think of and I will later. Of course, we could do the same for bad endings of movies....starting with "Pretty Woman" Sooo Chezzey!
