  • When shall we toast to?

  • Welcome to watch Mojo.

  • And today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 underrated endings in movies.

  • Do you think I might be switched off because I don't function as follows?

  • I'm supposed to You okay?

  • Are you?

  • I don't think so.

  • May I've got a light for this list.

  • We'll be looking at those movies that aren't necessarily known for their great endings, but that nevertheless wrapped up perfectly and left us with that indescribably special feeling at the end where all we could say was, Wow, do you think we've missed some underrated movie endings on this list?

  • Let us know down below in the comments.

  • And, of course, as always, aware of spoilers ahead.

  • Number 10 Storms Coming A serious man part indie dramedy, part biblical allegory based on the story of job, the Coen brothers, A serious man is a seriously hard movie to pin down and fully understand thes questions that are bothering you, Larry.

  • Maybe they're like a toothache.

  • Feel them for a while, Then they go away.

  • I don't want it to just go away.

  • I want an answer.

  • And much of the film's enigmatic power comes from its ending.

  • Muzzle toe.

  • It was It was wonderful.

  • Yes, it waas thank you.

  • Such a time of Marcus after pummeling Larry Gopnik with bad news throughout the entire runtime of the movie theater ending offers little in the way of closure or reconciliation, with the tornado heading his way and upon receiving bad news from his doctor.

  • Larry, like the rest of us, can't seem to make sense of what it all means and what it was all for way.

  • Can't discuss them over the phone.

  • I think we'd be more comfortable in person.

  • Can you come in when?

  • No, now it's good.

  • Not all endings are Hollywood endings.

  • And leave it to the Coens to illustrate that point better than anyone.

  • Number nine.

  • Faint Whistle Prisoners.

  • Here's another film whose ending is steeped in uncertainty and whose story is all the more satisfying because of it.

  • Now I know you can't promise me anything.

  • I understand that, but I'm asking you to be sure.

  • Be 100% sure.

  • Not all endings air happy and life rarely ties itself in a neat little bow.

  • For our sake, pray for the best prepared for the worst.

  • The broody, twisty film prisoners from director Dan Evil.

  • Neve is a perfect testament to the murkiness of life, reminding us that closure is hard to come by and that it doesn't immediately offer us a break from our pain.

  • In the final moments, we hold our breath and hope that Keller Dover is whistle could be heard.

  • It's a nearly silent ending, save for the faint whistle, and as such, it could be overlooked as nothing too spectacular.

  • But when done right, the understated, non ending works wonders.

  • Number eight.

  • Bittersweet Symphony.

  • Cruel Intentions.

  • Ah, the Sweet Sounds of Justice, which in this case are expressed in the melodic orchestral notes of the Verve's Bittersweet Symphony.

  • What is going on?

  • Don't you people have any respect?

  • How do you end a movie about ruined lives by ruining even Mawr lives in Cruel intentions?

  • Ah, high school melodrama.

  • Based on the French book Les Liaisons Dangereuses.

  • Dangerous Liaisons from the late 17 hundreds lives are ruined in spectacular fashion.

  • What brings this film together so well is that for most of the runtime are dual villains of Sebastian and Kathryn seem to be getting away with it, and shall we toast to to my triumph.

  • It's not my choice of toast, but it's your call.

  • But their monopoly on cruelty and winning sexiness runs dry in the films final moments, leading to a montage style cascade of bad outcomes.

  • For them, justice is a dish best served to catchy music.

  • Number seven.

  • What's Really Going on?

  • Annihilation.

  • Is it possible these were hallucinations?

  • Yeah, no, I wonder that myself.

  • But they were shared among all of us.

  • There was dreamlike on the heels of ex machina.

  • Writer director Alex Garland brought us annihilation.

  • And that's an apt title for this movie because plain and simple, it's ending annihilated.

  • Everything we thought we knew up until that point you are okay, are you?

  • I don't think so.

  • Is Cane a clone?

  • Has Lena been annihilated by the alien force known as the shimmer?

  • Listen, if you know what's going on here, let us know in the comments.

  • But until then, we'll just praise this sci fi flick as a story that leaves us with more questions than answers, because sometimes that's a good thing.

  • It came here for a reason.

  • It was mutating our environment.

  • It was destroying everything.

  • It wasn't destroying it was changing everything.

  • He was making something new.

  • Number six.

  • Family dinner.

  • A history of violence thing.

  • David Cronenberg Movie is a roller coaster ride from beginning to end.

  • I think he wants us to leave Mr.

  • Barghouti, Do you know what he does when he don't like people?

  • Mr.

  • Fogarty?

  • Yeah, I'm scared.

  • We should leave for it goes all dirty areas.

  • What starts off as a relatively quiet rural set story quickly escalates into a shoot him up mobster movie.

  • And despite the tonal stretch, it all works to great effect in this family who do not solve our problems by hitting people in this family.

  • We shoot them.

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • The brilliant acting from the small, star studded cast certainly helps, but it's the movies understated ending that really pushes it over the top in the films final moments after a series of grisly murders, most of them committed in self defense, the family led by the evasive and mysterious patriarch played by Aragorn, we mean Viggo Mortensen, sit down to a Norman Rockwell style dinner where, on the surface, everything seems calm and idyllic.

  • Of course, the scene belies the rocky family dynamics lurking just underneath the surface.

  • Number five Life in rials, Cinema Paradiso.

  • Understated endings never really get the credit they deserve, and that's especially true of our next pick.

  • Cinema Paradiso is a beautiful retrospective film about the power of nostalgia and the magic of movies I love.

  • Hey, did you?

  • You know what?

  • I'm over there.

  • He'll film their quest.

  • The over the bots, my body, My old Cuba Father.

  • I think the ending is so utterly sad and yet hopeful that it quite honestly can't be fully expressed in words.

  • How many come here, Maybe like a being of the parodies could not be betrayed.

  • As the now famous director, Salvator watches the real of formerly censored romantic scenes made and left to him by his old friend, now deceased, Alfredo tears stream from his eyes, and he finally makes peace with his tumultuous past.

  • The scene is at once nothing special and yet a perfect homage to the power of films and their ability to touch us on a deep human level.

  • Number four grand finale, Grand Torino ous faras.

  • We're concerned this whole film is underrated.

  • Thank you.

  • Mhm.

  • Get off my lawn!

  • Mhm!

  • Clint Eastwood was in his late seventies when he made this, and it's a sharp, poignant and engrossing as any of his best work.

  • The sacrificial ending fits so seamlessly into the stories narrative that it's hard to imagine the movie ending any other way.

  • Don't worry about how Tom's got not one second for you and cleanse transformation from racist curmudgeon, too Sympathetic Hero makes for one of the more interesting character arcs in recent film history.

  • May I've Got a Light I'll Marry Us full of grace.

  • After watching Gran Torino, it's hard to imagine how the movie and specifically the ending, could have been any better.

  • Number three Test complete ex machina This movie is ending shocked the pants off of us when we first saw it.

  • Stop, Stop, Eva, I said, stop!

  • Whoa, whoa, whoa.

  • Not only does it bring together so many elements perfectly, from Nathan's hubris to Caleb's naivete Thio Ava's desire to live and just be another human.

  • It does so in a brief, highly effective way.

  • Let me you stay here, Stay here.

  • Yeah, from the cheeky glance that Ava gives to Kayla, but she essentially leaves him to die in that fish full of a room to her disappearance in the sea of People at the very last moment of the film.

  • There's something so poetic and understated about Alex Garland's quiet masterpiece that it just sticks with you long after the credits roll.

  • Do you think I might be switched off because I don't function as well?

  • Asan supposed todo.

  • I don't know the answer to your question.

  • It's not up to me.

  • Why is it up to anyone?

  • Number two.

  • Zachary's story, Cloud Atlas The more things change, the more they stay the same.

  • Cloud Atlas is a particularly hard movie toe end, mainly because there are so many storylines that need to come together in a way that doesn't feel rushed or forced.

  • Our lives are not our own from womb to tomb way air bound toe, others passed on present.

  • Just ending the movie on a semi coherent note is a pretty massive feat in itself.

  • But the interlocked plots come together in such a tightly wound inextricable.

  • Not that it's a pretty amazing magic trick toe watch.

  • So much of the film centers around our need to tell stories and keep certain ideas and legends alive.

  • Despite our father's best wishes.

  • And despite government backlash for what?

  • No matter what you do, it will never amount to anything more than a single drop in a limitless ocean.

  • What is an ocean?

  • Put a multitude of drops.

  • That's why ending the movie by recounting yet another story makes so much sense You're gonna tell us about the walks, um, ship on the fixed fleet in all the next.

  • Next your Grammy tells the next next way better than me complex doesn't have to mean complicated before we unveil our number one pick.

  • Here are a few honorable mentions.

  • Explosive ending, ready or not, because it's not always about the understated ending.

  • Yeah, Ingrid goes viral.

  • Ingrid goes west because even narcissistic sociopaths need a happy ending.

  • Sometimes if you don't have anyone to share anything with, then what's the point of living?

  • Yeah, so I guess I'm just making this video so you guys can see the real me at least once before we continue.

  • Number one.

  • The Eyes of God, Crimes and Misdemeanors.

  • It's one thing to have a down ending in a movie, and tragedies have been around at least since ancient Greek times.

  • But what separates the ending of crimes and misdemeanors from most other movies is that it's played off, is totally upbeat.

  • Then you have.

  • You have tragedy, but that's fiction, that that's movies.

  • I mean, you see too many movies.

  • I'm talking about reality.

  • I mean, if you want a happy ending, you should go see a Hollywood movie.

  • As Judah Rosenthal, played by Martin Landau, realizes that he succeeded in getting away with murder, we, the audience are still waiting for him to face the moral reckoning and crisis of conscience that he and all likelihood deserves.

  • People carry off with deeds around with him.

  • And what what do you expect him to dio turn himself in?

  • I mean, this is reality.

  • In reality, we we rationalize, we deny, or we couldn't go on living.

  • But Woody Allen, being Woody Allen, doesn't give us some great moralizing spiel in the end and chooses instead to let his main character walk away Scot free without a guilty thought in his head That takes, you know, what do I mean?

  • It's tragedy plus time.

  • Okay, we're out.

  • That's it So fast.

  • Do you agree with our picks?
