Robot Monkey Posted February 23, 2004 Report Share Posted February 23, 2004 Some talk of A.I. and happy endings made me wonder: Do I prefer sad endings? I mean, I didn't like A.I.'s ending at all (all 45 minutes of it), I prefer the 'downer" alternate ending on the Ronin DVD, and I prefer the interpretation of Minority Report's ending that Cruise's character is still in cryo lockdown, imagining the happy ending. And I love Spirited Away's ending, which, upon reflection, is not a standard happy ending at all. Giving it some thought, I don't think I prefer sad endings to happy ones. What I don't like are endings that seem artificial, crammed on in an effort to have a happy ending. The Ronin alternate ending, for example, struck me as truer to the rest of the movie than the ending they used. Is this the same thinking among any of you who think they prefer sad endings as I did? -j Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
