So much for a happy ending...


I was watching Atonement the other night and at first it appeared like something that would seem disgusting but with nothing better to do for the night I just watched it and I LOVED it!
I love the sad ending, about how the younger sister ruined the time that her sister and her sister’s love life needed by sending him to jail for a crime he didn’t commit.
I’m full of bad-endings. I love them, they complete me because movies now are just so full off happy-endings where the guy gets the girl, kills the baddie and they live happily-ever-after.
Oh, and I hate those endings where the main character risks their life and it looks like they’re dead and then they wake up and everyone’s happy and then there’s this sweet ending,
But in Atonement the guy dies the day the army was returning home and the main character never got to make things right with her sister because her sister died in a flooding accident.
So hurray for sad endings!
Although everyone would prefer their life not to end badly because sad endings aren’t really good in real-life – only for awesome movies like ‘So Close’ , ‘Atonement’, ‘Stairway to Heaven’, ‘Glass Slipper’ and ‘About a Girl’.

Over and out

So I had a comment but I've forgotten it now. Is it sad I've been sitting here for the past five minutes trying to figure out if your comment message is the theme from jaws? Hang on. Think I just answered my own question there. Disregard.
