    Spoilers below so gagf if you haven't seen some of these movies:

    Night of the Living Dead (original Romero one) - holy **** did he just have everyone killed off completely?

    The Usual Suspects - so good. The coffee mug!

    Seven - just ****ing chilling. The audience gets no satisfaction at Spacey dying because he got exactly what he wanted.

    Also the ending to the first Godfather is pretty awesome. That door closing, just the perfect way to stamp the fact that Michael has completely turned from an innocent boy to the Don.

    Hitchcock's finest hour. Birds was crap. And hated North by Northwest.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Yup.

    North by Northwest is tolerable if viewed as a sort of precursor to the James Bond franchise, IMO. Ian Fleming was apparently impressed enough to want Hitchcock to direct the first Bond movie.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Definitely. Shawshank has a great ending.

    Novels generally have much better endings (I suppose it speaks to the different audience it must appeal to) - I noticed many of the films in this thread were adapted from novels.

    Might be interesting to keep it to films NOT based on novels.

    Inception


    What about The Seventh Seal? Fantastic movie - was that based on a novel?

    Love the ending to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Just the way it leaves him hanging on the side of the bridge with his phone ringing, yet doesn't actually resolve it.

    Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.

    Great ending. Just makes Jack Nicholas' whole work throughout the film pointless though
