Keep Your Promises

Maybe I'm titchy because I just spent every living moment this last fortnight getting Come To Heal edited so I could send the full off to Medallion. (Yay!) I need sleep and that always makes me picky -- all right, cranky, nasty, the total bitch on wheels.

BUT I just watched "Collateral", and I'm really annoyed. I hated the ending. The rest of the movie wasn't bad if you can get past Tom Cruise playing the bad guy- sheesh, he reminds me of a boy scout. I want to shake my finger and send him to the corner (especially after what he did to Nicole.)

HOWEVER I feel really let down by the way the film writers wrote the ending. I felt like they'd written themselves into this great hole and saw the word limit fast approaching and just went, what the heck. Have the professional assassin shot by an amateur. Hey,it could happen. Yeah, right!

It's a good reminder to all of us - don't slack off just because you're near the end. Finish with as big a bang as you started with!

You know...I found that ending to be lacking as well, but not for the same reasons you did. For me it was more the actions of the heroine at the end. Can we say "TSTL"?

Sorry I haven't been by your blog in a while - for some reason I've not received alerts for the last 5 or 6 posts. So very annoying!

I haven't seen that movie, but it's not fun when a less than stellar ending ruins a perfectly good film.

I never got to see the ending of that movie due to a timing thing, but knowing this, I no longer feel the need. Bad endings suck.

I remember that movie. It was great, as you said, right until the end. Bad, dumb heroine and suddenly a man who has been in control of everything during the entire film gets stupid. Argh.

Precisely! What were they thinking?
