Are happy endings always satisfying? We have compiled a list of movies that may or may not have a happy ending but were indeed satisfying.
Aldo giving “The Jew Hunter” a permeant swastika on his forehead, though gruesome, is considered one of the most satisfying movie endings in cinema history.
2. The Godfather
3. The Sixth Sense
This movie has not only the most satisfying end but also the most surprising one. In the end, we get to know that Malcolm never survived the intruder attack at the beginning of the movie. He was, in fact, one of the dead people Cole sees.
4. Rocky 2
5. John Wick
6. The 400 Blows
In “The 400 Blows“, Antoine breaks the fourth wall and looks directly into the camera. This made one of the most satisfying endings in the history of cinema, and it still holds that position.
Psycho shows one of the most satisfying and bewildering ends. In the end, we see that Norman Bates was the one who killed his mother and then started dressing and talking like her. He was also the one who committed all the murders.
8. The Shawshank Redemption
Andy and Red meet again; How is that not satisfying?
9. The Usual Suspects
10. Avengers: – Endgame
Okay, the ending did break our hearts into thousand pieces, but we still love it 3000! I mean the entire team of Avengers kneeling to the one and only Iron Man; how is that not satisfying?
12. There will be blood
To sell his land to Daniel, Eli Sunday renounces his faith. But Daniel reveals that the land is worthless, and a brawl takes place between them, in which Sunday dies. The movie ends with Daniel yelling, “I’m finished!”
Even though the ending was baffling, we were happy to see Cobb finally coming back to his kids. Guess we’ll never know the truth.
15. Furious 7
16. Django Unchained
That’s all, Folks. See you soon, with another awesome list!
