FridayQ – November 19, 2004

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a week. Works been busy, life is busy etc etc. Maybe this Friday Q will help you all get over my absence.
FQ TOPIC: Endings.
FQ1: What’s your favorite ending to a movie or play?
I have a bunch of favorite movies and plays (I realize I just misunderstood the question after typing everything out below – not my favorite movie ending but my favorite ending). Listed below are the endings to a lot of my favorite movies (skip ahead if you haven’t seen them before).
Amelie: Nino is told where Amelie lives. He knocks on her door but she doesn’t answer. He leaves a note saying he will be back. The Glass Man leaves a video tape in Amelie’s VCR which tells her “If you let this chance pass, eventually, your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. So, go to him, dammit. ” She runs to the door to chase Nino down and comes face to face with him. Loving ensues 🙂
Magnolia: Everyone is in shambles. Frogs rain from the heavens. Amends are made by all.
Dancer in the Dark: Selma is executed for killing Bill and not telling the truth about the accidental murder. (not a happy ending)
Ravenous: F.W. Colqhoun eats a boat load of people throughout the movie. Capt. John Boyd doesn’t like that. They fight to the death. Boyd pushes Colqhoun onto a giant bear trap killing both of them.
FQ2: What’s your favorite ending to a song or musical?
The only song I can think of that has a memorable ending is A Day in the Life by the Beatles. With the 40-second sustained single piano chord. Other than that I can’t think of anything else.
FQ3: What’s your favorite ending to a book or graphic novel?
At the end of the Plague Dogs where the dogs are saved and reunited with the owner. (At least I believe it was like that since it’s been a long time since I read it).
FQ Memorial: What would be your favorite ending to your life?
Passing away quietly in bed while I sleep and then everyone having a party to celebrate my life, even though it isn’t that extraordinary. That is what I would like.
