In the real world, everyone doesnt always end up living happily ever after, but in the fictional tales told by Hollywood thats usually exactly what happens. There is an understanding to the thinking behind it: After investing anywhere from 90 minutes to 3 hours becoming emotionally invested in the story on the TV or theater screen, there needs to be a satisfying conclusion to the journey that is happening. Its important to leave a theater with a feeling of satisfaction and resolution. But every now and then a film comes along that takes a chance at doing something a little different, and gives a jolt that no one expects. Reality isnt always concluded in a safe, neat manner. Sometimes its ugly, and occasionally it's good for our entertainment to reflect that. Now, of course there are some movies that absolutely have to have that happy ending. For instance, the original Star Wars trilogy could never have ended with the Empire prevailing, Harry Potter had to defeat Voldemort and the vanquishing of Sauron was a necessity. With that being said, there are certain movies that never would have had the impact they did had they chosen to go with a more feel-good ending. In those circumstances, the safe option was definitely not the better one, and the entire tone of the film would be altered irrevocably afterward. This article is going to be delving into those movies, right here. Heres 10 Movies That Would Have Been Ruined By Happy Endings.
