Truly almost great movies that just missed the ending
Baby Driver

This should have been tragedy. People need happy endings so they got one. In my mind a tragic ending would have been better storytelling.

This is what happened to Brazil's ending.

Didn’t he lose his hearing as well as do prison time? That seems pretty tragic to me. I guess he got the girl in the end but paid a pretty steep and permanent price.

A.I. Artificial Intelligence falls in this category, although I'd say instead of 'just missed' the ending they completely blew it. Kubrick deserved better.

Yeah, I saw it as being pretty tragic. There was light at the end of the tunnel, but, shit, that was harsh.

Along the same vain Superman should have ended tragically with Lois Lane's death as well. They made Superman way too powerful being able to literally erase consequences of tough decisions.

That was disappointing. Once you could turn back time, what's the point of any villain against him? There's zero consequences for anything.

I felt like Kathy Bates in Misery:

"They just cheated on us, this isn't fair! HE DIDN'T GET OUT OF THE COCK-A-DOODIE (COCKADOODIE) CAR!"

As much as I love Mark Strong, the entire Pinbacker subplot was completely unnecessary. Still a top Sci-Fi movie in my book though.

Law Abiding Citizen. Gerald Butler's character should've "won".

Killing Superman would be the only thing with finality. And they already made that hard as shite.

I’ll throw out Europa Report, although it didn’t ruin the movie. I didn’t like that they threw in the alien right in the end.
