    I gotta agree with you on that one. It's one of those endings that complies to your own "I bet the world gets saved now" comment on a sad ending. Only to make it even sadder.

    The mist and The Thing are one of the better movies with a "bad ending".

    That's horse shit. A good happy ending offers all of those things in spades. And throwing in a bad ending just for the sake of avoiding the cliche, is a cliche unto itself. It's not "artistic", it's hackneyed.

    Reminds me of Sopranos there. Not a good ending. Not a bad ending. Not really an ending. Life goes on.

    You should watch the first SAW movie.

    Romantic comedies and cheap thrill rides always have happy endings.

    Don't watch garbage and then complain about how bad it is.

    I recomend you to watch the SAW saga. Spoiler alert. It doesn't end well for the good guys in that movie.

    There are plenty of movies with less than happy endings, but the fact of the matter is, most people look at it like, there's enough fucking depression and sadness and misery in the real world, so in fiction, they like to see something end on a positive note.

    Most of the people that bite the dust during the series were arguably not even remotely good people.

    The audience, more often than not, would rather the stories end happily.

    You don't want happy endings? Try real life. Lots of seriously non-happy endings there.

    Only porn movies always have happy endings...

    But seriously, I would really like to see more movies with not-so-happy endings... it's so cheesy that everything always works out fine - that is not the case in real life.

    While true, most of the cops, excludeing the corrupted cop they were just doing thier job. And got owned in the process. Also, the grand majority of people in those movies that were captured, were ehh, moraly grey, but not murderers (Not all). By far the end of the 5th one (I think?), still impacted me. The one were the cop gets fucking crushed by those Iron walls at the end.

    That's kinda the point. The majority of movie going audiences go to movies to ESCAPE from the misery and unhappiness of real life, they don't wanna see unhappy endings cause they can just turn on the news for that. I'm not saying I oppose unhappy endings, but there's a very big reason you don't see more of them, cause MOST of the audience doesn't want them.
