QFT. This resonates so hard with poker in particular and America in general.

"FU that's my name. You know why mister? Cuz you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight, I drove an 80 thousand dollar BMW". Capitalism's irreproachable prose. And through all the insults and injuries he is ultimately not ***** with you, that would require intent. Has he got your attention now?

I would add the cacophonic climax from Heat.



I smile irrepressibly every time I watch this.

Lots of great, unforgettable scenes, but the ending to the god awful, 1978 Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is truly unforgettable for me. To set the scene, Strawberry Fields has died after being kidnapped by the Future Villain Band (played by Aerosmith), and her boyfriend Billy Shears (Peter Frampton), hardbroken, is about to commit suicide as the Henderson brothers, the other members, along with Billy Shears, of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club band (played by the Bee Gees) sing sadly. After Billy jumps but before he hits the ground, the Sgt. Pepper weather vain comes to life, revealing Billy Preston in a Sergeant's uniform. Preston yells at Billy Shears to "GET BACK," zapping him with his magic, funkalicious finger, and stopping his fall. Preston then funkafies the whole town, zapping everything bad that took over the town and bringing Strawberry Fields back to life.

It's as horrible and as awesome as it sounds. I first saw it in junior high and watch this clip all the time. Billy Preston's dance moves and his "get on back" hand motions are the best. For some reason I can't get it to go the time, but (unless you want to watch some awesome camp) scene starts at 1h40m.

haha, Billy Preston's part is definitely the best part of this movie. I like when he pulls the magic bolts out.

I still marvel they used the song 'carry that weight' while being pallbearers - lol what taste.


Another tuly bizarre use of Beatles was in a movie documenting the second world war to the soundtrack of Beatles covers, with choices such as using 'Here Comes the Sun King' as they show the Japanese air force taking off for Pearl Harbor. Here is "All This And World War Too"...

While the GGR scene is def GOAT, this is highly, highly underrated with what I believe is his first screen appearance:

I've alway been a huge fan of suspense thrillers with great endings that you can't forget. A few that come to mind:

John Travolta in the General's Daughter- "When this all started, I told you that we would find the son of a bitch, sir. I never expected that the son of a bitch would be you."

Edward Norton in Primal Fear- clap..clap...clap..."well good for you Marty"

Edward Norton fuguring out what's up when the green car rolls by in American History X followed by the ending

Dakota Fanning "I love you Creasy and you live me too don't you" ending scene from Man on Fire

The ending to Basic Instinct

The ending to the Usual Suspects

For an older movie (1985) with a great cast and and an ending you will like try Jagged Edge. If you haven't seen it yet, I would say it is a must see.

The ending of Man On Fire didn't make sense to me (although I'm pretty sure I know why it was done that way).

OK - You have Creasy at the home of "The Voice". He has his brother who has a few fingers missing after he shot Creasy & then tried to run him over. He also has the guys wife & she is like 8 months pregnant.

And the deal Creasy settles for is to trade The Voice's Brother & Himself for Pita. He could have told the voice that he gets Pita & for that he will let his brother & his 8 month old pregnant wife live.

It's basically a 3 for 1 deal in The Voices favor. And TV (the voice from now on) has already said that family is the most important thing to him. And Pita has reawakened Creasys spirit to want to live again.

Anybody agree with me about that?

But he trades himself & TV's brother for Pita - and he knows they are going to kill him. But I guess the producers & director thought it would be more dramatic & heroic for Creasy to die.

I do love Linda Rondstat's voice. Boy could she belt it out when she was young.....that song they used Blue Bayou is a great cover of a Roy Orbison song.

I also like You're No Good & my all time fav of hers is Ooh Baby Baby.....her voice was so powerful & beautiful. I read she can't sing anymore because of some disease she has now....I think it was Parkinsons.

A few recommendations if u like wild endings. Bridges is in Jagged Edge (Jeff) & he is also in a movie called "The Vanishing" with Sandra Bullock & Nancy Travis with the kind of ending u like.

And if u really like disturbing endings u don't see coming - see the American version of "Funny Games". It has Naomi Watts & Tim Roth & Michael Pitt.

Creasy was already shot and dieing. He died a few minutes later in the car. I guess by giving himself up like that it guaranteed no retribution by TV?

The chief saying goodbye to McMurphy and then escaping



Also, the final scene of Gattaca. And, I know Schindler's list isn't popular here, but the scene where the bodies are being burnt and Schindler's watching is something I picture vividly.

Perhaps that wasn't the greatest segue ever, but I really liked it and thought the ending was great. Good lead up to that ending

Brenner: "You traded her trust for your career. You kept silent and they gave you another star. I'm gonna put that in my report, that you left her out there to die"

General Campbell: "You don't have have the balls"

Brenner: "Ohhhhhhh you're wrong sir. Because that's just about all I have left"

Followed by shots of the military funeral salute with bullets firing and dropping slowly and the "son of a bitch" quote made for a great ending to me.

The scene in Seven when they find the guy in the bed and he wakes up out of no where. Scared the **** out of me as a kid and was unforgettable because of how distrubing it was.

That ending is the greatest denouement of all time. AINEC. It perfectly completes the film. It segues back to the beginning, not the prior scene...
