But in the first script, the film ends with Lewis pushing Ward out of a car and throwing $3,000 at her before speeding off.

That would have been AWESOME.

The creature would then have communicated with Earth on the radio, speaking in actress Sigourney Weaver's voice.

This was vetoed by studio bosses, but only because they wanted the movie to end with the alien dying.


Well, Scott didn't write the script, so I'm not sure he would have been to make that call. That and it's a f*cking stupid idea. If the alien had that kind of ability why would it wait until the end of the movie to use it?

I think the Brett Fav-re ending of Something About Mary worked great. It was just so out there and capped off a zany and unforgettable movie.

TFA leaves out details to make their little piece more interesting. The original script was not a romantic comedy. It was dark drama. That's Hollywood for ya.

And again. She was a whore, and that ending would have been farking hilarious, not on the dark drama, but on the rom com it was.

The Birds
In this classic adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's novel, the attacking birds suddenly cease their onslaught and everything returns to normal. But director Alfred Hitchcock wanted the 1963 movie to end with the bleak image of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge covered in the black-winged assailants.


Hitchcock also wanted to end "Suspicion" with Cary Grant's character killing Joan Fontaine's character (which is how the book the movie was based on ended), but the studio wouldn't let him risk Grant's image as a nice guy.

I would have paid double the ticket price if George Lucas had put in a bonus scene in Revenge of the Sith, where Jar Jar Binks puts a shotgun in his mouth out of remorse for helping create the clone army that would cause the Empire.

Awesomer would have been Julia Roberts tracking Gere down and stuffing that $20 bill into his kid's pet rabbit's mouth, which she then puts in a pot to stew.
Awesomer still, she tracks him down and sends him that $20 bill with ' I have AIDS, btw. LOL!' written on it.

Having read "Rambo" years ago when it first came out, I will have to say that there are a few minor differences between the book and the movie.

As in,
The book ends with all the bully redneck cops dead.
The National Guard troops take a serious hit.
Most of the town is destroyed.
And there is No potential for a sequel.

Colonel Troutman isn't there to take Rambo into custody.
He's there to put him down.

Yeah, I've just read some more about the original script online.  In the original script Julia Roberts' character was a cocaine addict, and she spends a lot of the movie going through withdrawls because Richard Gere's character won't let her buy drugs while she's posing as his girlfriend.  Also, her one friend who had the drug debt in the movie was a full-blown junkie in the original script.

In the original ending of Titanic, the boat wasn't supposed to sink. It was going to get teleported by aliens to a desert planet where Leo's character would become king of the sand people, and summons worms with his mind!

That's very dependent on the studio and the power that the director has. At the point in Scott directorial career when he directed Aliens, he was still kind of a no-name (Alien was only his second feature length movie)...there's a good chance he didn't have the power to do so. At this point, all the studio wanted was "some kind of space movie because Star Wars was so popular" so let's get a darned space movie out as fast as possible.

I think the alternate Fatal Attraction ending would have been more interesting. Also, it really would have been funny for Something About Mary to have the same happy ending but the last second of the film showing Ben Stiller getting hit by a bus. Everybody is happy, then BLAM!

I believe in the original ending of Return of the Jedi, the Millennium Falcon piloted by Lando does not make it out of the Death Star and gets blown up.  However, test audiences hated that ending, so it was revised so they would survive.

TV's Vinnie: I would have paid double the ticket price if George Lucas had put in a bonus scene in Revenge of the Sith, where Jar Jar Binks puts a shotgun in his mouth out of remorse for helping create the clone army that would cause the Empire.


Oh so much!

Jar Jar is in his space apartment drinking cheap space margaritas, snorting Plutonian Nyborg, and taking hits from a space bong. Whatever. Just stay with this vision. Jar Jar is an angry stoner and starts to beat his space apartment and space belongings apart with a space ballbat. He breaks down sobbing and crying, then clears what passes for a nose. He stumbles over to a space closet, roots around in there until he find his space shotgun. He slowly loads the shotgun with a two rounds. Jar Jar lets lose a sigh, (and wind, ??) then stumbles to the space glass door separating his apartment from the balcony.  He slowly pushes the door open. He walks to the edge and looks across the chasm at space stranger who has been watching him during these outbursts. The stranger is transfixed with a with a slack jaw. Jar Jar quickly turns, places the space shotgun muzzle under his throat, pulls the trigger, and blows what is commonly called his 'head' into a yellow and red mist. Jar Jars body limply fall over the ledge and plummets many space kilometers to smash into a parked space delivery truck. The space shotgun lands next to the parked space delivery truck, misfires the second round into the side of the aforementioned truck, which then explodes into a fireball. Fade to next scene.

I like the alternate ending of "The Last Temptation of Christ", where Jesus returns after 3 days, and takes out a giant radioactive beast from the sea by shooting him with laser beams coming from his eyes.

And the lone remaining artifact of Lando's demise is retained in the scene where Han tells Leia:"I've got a funny feeling, like I'm never going to see her again." referring to Lando borrowing the Falcon.

Now that I think about it, was Han more concerned over his ship than his friend?

Maybe some day that ending can be released as a deleted scene, but with Lando coming back for VII, I doubt it'll become a part of the movie proper ever again.

No, it wouldn't. It would have been the "happy" ending movie watchers expect. The actual ending has John Doe winning: John Doe represented Envy, Mills represents Wrath and the seven deadly sins are complete. If Somerset kills John Doe, you waste the rapport you built with the audience. And for what? So Mills doesn't go to jail?

You thought Mills would go to jail? I'm not an attorney, but having someone deliver your wife's head to you might, just might, be a mitigating circumstance. But that isn't the point of the ending.

The original was exactly what I expected to happen. Not saying that it was bad, just that it I would have enjoyed an ending that had Somerset kill Doe (or even shoot Mills, to stop him from killing Doe).

Even with that ending it wouldn't have been happy, but Doe would have also "suffered" in the loss of his perfectly crafted plan. It also would have made more sense for Somerset to take some action (fark any action) other than standing there and shouting that Doe had the upper hand.

Crazy that there could be more than one opinion on a subject, right?

Fourthed (?).  Of course it goes without saying it would have killed the movie's classic chickflick status.  (It would still have been cool to see them film it for a gag reel, like some of the clips in the Grumpy Old Men movies.)

So what did Marshall say about the ending?

In the Bluray/DVD release there is a storyboard with that version where Somerset kills Doe. I think the theatrical ending still works the best.

I found the movie chilling because I felt boxed in at the end, watching the predetermined plan unfold, which I'm sure was the intended effect.  But I think that alternate suggestion would have been more satisfying, perhaps even more realistic.

Honestly I have no issue with the theatrical ending, it was an enjoyable film all around.

It might have been more interesting had Somerset killed Mills to prevent him from killing Doe. but that's not a movie that gets made in Hollywood.

The Hollywood "happy ending" would have had Somerset talk Mills down and Doe throw a tantrum at having his plot foiled, that would have sucked.

Dramatic effect. The audience gets the vengeful satisfaction of Doe paying for his crimes, wrapped in the inescapable tragedy of his plot coming to fruition. It is quite powerful, just not entirely realistic.

Another option would have been to have Mills force Doe to blow his brains out and have the sniper in the helicopter kill Doe in assumption that he had broken free. Probably a little too complicated, but it's fun to imagine.

I think it would have been better with either of the alternate endings.  I would have liked to see him dying, knowing that his plan failed - and not because Mills didn't want to kill him, but because Somerset stepped in.

The dark ending of Pretty Woman makes me think that the movie The Player was more on the nose than I even guessed. The fact that Julia Roberts was mentioned numerous times in The Player makes me wonder if they were chuckling at Pretty Woman's happy ending.

Oh, I meant to add that Freeman flesh-wounding Pitt would have been, if anything, more of a Hollywood move, not less, which is probably another reason the director didn't want to do it.  Tough love buddy cop and all that.

Didn't know that there was a video game.

re: all the Star Wars comments.
.
In the late '60's or early '70's I picked up a paperback book titled "Star Wars; From the Journals of Luke Skywalker"
Had a very space opera cover illustration. And covered some things not shown or mentioned in the movie.
And oh how I wish I still had that book.

After the movie, Allen Dean Foster wrote a sanctioned sequel "Splinter of the Minds Eye".It picks up where the movie ends and dealt with Luke's attempts to learn more about the Force on his own. Before he meets up with Yoda.

It referred to things that had happened in the book but not shown in the movie.

Was extremely dark themed in nature. Like comparing the bright colorful atmosphere of the Enterprise with the bowels of the Nostromo from Aliens; or Gotham City from Batman on tv with the Gotham City from the Michael Keaton's Batman trilogy.

And didn't get filmed.
 
2014-02-04 05:02:31 PM  
I think that the ending of Se7en is perfect because the entire movie is, IMO, an allegory, and not meant to be taken literally as a story, per se. There is a lot of dialogue that shows that the characters are meant to be symbolic: Sommerset is cynical, Mills is idealistic, Tracy is innocent and John Doe is corrupt and evil. The movie (IMO again) is about the struggle to maintain idealism when confronted with the decay and corruption and evil in modern cities in America. When Sommerset says to Mills in the bar "You can't afford to be this naive." the cynic (who used to be idealistic) is saying to the idealist "This city will bury you." because that's what happened to the cynic years ago. Mills comes to this precinct from what we are led to believe a relatively benign area of the metropolis. Sommerset is stunned that anyone would opt for this, but Mills is truly idealistic and he sees himself as the person to right these wrongs (he says as much in one dialogue exchange). Tracy is caught between the idealism of her husband and the cynicism of Sommerset (recall their conversation at the restaurant concerning how she doesn't want to raise a child in the evil atmosphere of the city). John Doe personifies what has beaten down Sommerset for his whole career, it's why Sommerset knows right away that "this isn't over" after only one murder. The opening scene of the movie, where Sommerset walks into the murder being investigated by other detectives and asks if the child witnessed the killing, shows that Sommerset still "cares" to some degree...he has not lost all is idealism, but when Mills shows up, he sees a younger version of himself and knowing what lies ahead, tries to keep Mills from falling into the same trap he did. Ultimately, Mills' blind idealism, believing in the power of "good," is shown to be defeated by corruption and evil. Mills loses his soul, more or less, and will never be the man he was. That is, ultimately, what I believe the movie to be about, i.e. a warning that idealism is not enough to battle evil/corruption. Idealism can be destroyed, cynicism is stronger when confronted by evil. It's why Sommerset's voiceover at the end sums everything up so well..." Ernest Hemingway once wrote, 'The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.' I agree with the second part."  Sommerset comes to the conclusion that he can't retire. He thinks the world is a foul place, but someone must battle evil because the idealist is ill-equipped to do so.

At least, that's my theory...I've watched the movie perhaps 20-30 times. And yes, I wish I could review movies for a living. ;-)
 
2014-02-04 05:13:10 PM  
Very interesting take on the allegory, I'm sure it's meant to be taken that way in some degree as well. After all when talking about the seven sins as the motive for the killer, it will work at that level too I feel. Either I love that movie as well. In fact i've become a huge fan of David Fincher along the years.

Von Ryan's Express...

Von Ryan wasn't supposed to die at the end.  Sinatra thought it would be a good idea and convinced them to film it.  Made for a more powerful ending.  In the book he survives.
