The Perfect Ending

Have you ever watched a movie that you never wanted to end? But then, once it ended, you thought:

That ending was perfect.


It doesn’t matter if the movie was incredibly sad or just plain silly. Sometimes a movie just nails an ending so well that you can’t help but cheer (or cry or whatever).

Take, for example, the ending of Wreck-It-Ralph.

I’m referring mainly to the part at 2:33 and on, but the whole last few minutes just wraps the whole movie up so wonderfully that I can’t help but smile, every time. (And the final line in particular is just . . . gah. ^____^)

I’m kind of short on time, so I’ll give just one more example: the ending of The Fellowship of the Ring.

A lot has happened leading up to this point: Boromir has died, Merry and Pippin have been kidnapped, and Frodo and Sam are leaving for Mordor on their own. All seems hopeless. And then this happens, wrapping up with Frodo’s simple line of “Sam . . . I’m glad you’re with me.” It’s just perfect. I can’t explain why. So just watch it. :P

What are some movie endings that you thought really hit the nail on the head? Sound off in the comments, and I’ll see you next week!
