Top 5 Movie Endings

"Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place
and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part."
Here are the finest five of them all.

5) Carlito's Way (1993)
A brilliant movie with a brilliant ending. I'm talking about the last monologue of Carlito Brigante, one of the most moving monologues of cinema history. Read just the lines, and it sounds a little stupid, but hearing it through Al Pacino's shaking voice as Carlito dies, and seeing the whole thing through De Palma's soaring camera, you can understand why this ending earns 5th place. Don't even compare it with Scarface, this is a story of regret, of trying to get away from a guilty past. And in the end, it's just the sunset and a woman dancing. Indeed, they don't make movies like that anymore.


Sorry boys, all the stitches in the world can't sew me together again. Lay down... lay down. Gonna stretch me out in Fernandez funeral home on Hun and Ninth street. Always knew I'd make a stop there, but a lot later than a whole gang of people thought... Last of the Moh-Ricans... well maybe not the last. Gail's gonna be a good mom... New improved Carlito Brigante... Hope she uses the money to get out. No room in this city for big hearts like hers... Sorry baby, I tried the best I could, honest... Can't come with me on this trip, Loaf. Getting the shakes now, last call for drinks, bars closing down... Sun's out, where are we going for breakfast? Don't wanna go far. Rough night, tired baby... Tired...



4) Se7en (1995)
This is a genre-blender, a film noir with gore elements, a cop thriller with a dash of psychological drama. It broke all the rules in the book. For the first time the explicit murders are shown to us. The killer is presented to us long before the end, and makes you wonder why. What could possibly be more shocking than what has happened already? It rained for the whole movie, setting the perfect atmosphere, then near the end the sky is clear. And you ask yourself, Who is envy, who is wrath? Then, you finally witness one of the best climaxes there are. John Doe has the most clever killing pattern in movie history, and no matter how many times Se7en's plot is immitated, it will never lose its greatness. Plus, like in every David Fincher movie, there's such a vivid comment on the decline of society, which gives even deeper meaning to its ending.



3) Magnolia (1999)
Why are there in the very beginning the little stories about accidents and coincidences? We will sure find out, but PT Anderson won't make it easy for us. Three hours in, it starts raining frogs, and just like the sing-along, it actually makes sense. Not quite a god intervention, but an amazing way for all the characters to reach redemption, as their destiny changes while driving down Magnolia Boulevard. Aaaaaahhhhaaaaaaa you might say, and god damn right. Now watch the movie again, see how we may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with us, and watch how all the characters "wise up". Best script ever.

2) Citizen Kane (1941)
Forget the hype, the critics and the best-movie-ever buzz. Whether you loved or hated this one, you can't but admire what Orson Welles achieved at the age of 25. It's a movie that can easily compare with today's so-called masterpieces. The cinematography and direction are astonishing for a movie six decades old. But its greatness revolves around its storyline, where through flashbacks we watch Kane's rise to power from his early years. What do his last words mean? It troubles you throughout the film, and in the last frames we are presented with an image so powerful, a bobsled being destroyed, that makes you think about lost innocence, regrets, the pursuit of happiness and how these matters affect one's life. Ground-breaking.

1) Dogville (2003)
Lars Von Trier reaches new levels of misogunism. Nicole Kidman's Grace is on the run, she hides in Dogville, a little village with seemingly nice people. As the movie progresses, Grace's kindness is exploited in a way no words can describe accurately enough. Under the hypocritical veil of civilized society, she swallows everything, meanwhile pointing out their mistakes. When daddy-the mob boss arrives on the scene, the villager's give Grace away, and she takes a revenge we're never likely to see again. It's not like The Shawshank Redemption's feel-good tear-jerker ending, this is the actual definition of the word redemption, in its purest and most righteous form. A deserving massacre, a true gut punch. Slavery, hypocricy, exploitation, innocence, revenge, execution, arrogance, corruption, religion, pick a word, this movie has an opinion for it. Is it a comment on modern America? Most certainly is, even if some people deny it. If you haven't seen it, don't miss it.

Contenders
Chinatown, Godfather Part II, Thelma & Louise, Casablanca, Memento, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, American Beauty, Donnie Darko, The Shawshank Redemption, Big Fish, The Truman Show, this was a tough one. For twists, read my Top 5 Plot Twists.

Покупают ли женщины в подарок мужское нижнее белье? Безусловно! Как известно[url=http://cocksox.su/prods/all],[/url] женщины - гораздо более активные покупатели, чем мужчины. Вероятно, у них в крови есть некий "шопинг-гормон", который время от времени вызывает острую покупательскую потребность. По статистике, именно женщины обычно делают покупки для дома, для семьи и для своих любимых мужчин. Позаботиться о таких интимных мужских предметах как нижнее белье женщина считает своим законным правом. При этом мамы покупают сыновьям белье исходя из соображений практичности: прочность, удобство, соотношение "цена-качество" - для них главные критерии. Для жены важно, чтобы ей было приятно смотреть на своего мужчину в этом белье. И даже если фигура супруга далека от совершенства, она скорее выберет то нижнее белье, которое идеально смотрится на мачо с рекламного плаката. Подруги покупают своим бой-френдам модные модели престижных марок или трусики с "изюминкой".

И мало кто знал тогда, что буквально через пару лет игра станет столь популярной по всей Земле. Правда, у одного из разработчиков, имеющего прозвище «Гусятник», уже был аналогичный опыт – известная игра «Quake 2».
