I’m sure there have been a few times where you’ve come back from watching a movie, scratching your head and wondering why (or how) it ended the way it did. No Country for Old Men pops into my mind – for such a suspenseful film, I was hoping for more of an ending than the anti-climatic rambling I witnessed. I’m told the movie ends as Cormac McCarthy’s novel tells it and while one shouldn’t mess with the works of Pulitzer Prize winning authors, sometimes I wish movies had more satisfactory endings.
That’s the idea behind Howitshouldhaveended.com who have been re-imagining alternate endings for popular movies since 2005. The results are quite humorous and one of my favourites is for The Lord of The Rings, where the solution to the problem is so elegant and simple. Check it out below.
