I feel I should explain something. As time passed, I began to understand why people didn't like the movie/ending. I started to wonder what happened to everybody after such an abrupt ending. So here is what happened:

After the good guy dies he is buried in an oak coffin. He lies underground for years and years and years until the coffin rots and he is eaten by maggots. The maggots grow up to be flies and then die 24 hours later. The same thing happens to his wife.

The bad guy walks down the street and then turns left. Then he walks for another mile until he turns right onto Main Street. He walks into a CVS to buy some of that sticky gauze stuff to heal up his arm. Then he pays for it. He walks out of the CVS and turns right to continue down Main Street. He continues walking for a long time until he reaches a hotel where he can stay for the night. He takes off the shirt-sling and puts on the sticky gauze. He goes to bed after watching the Tonight Show. He dies because he bleeds out. He is cremated because it is cheaper for the town. The ashes are just spread on the sidewalk outside the crematorium.

After the Sheriff guy tells his dream, he eats his breakfast. Then he does chores and such around the house until lunch time. His wife makes them both a tuna fish sandwich. After lunch they both go riding horses around their property. They have a modest dinner while watching the news. Then they watch TV and go to bed. They wake up the next morning and do the same thing over again until they both die years later from a gas leak in their house. They are buried next to each other out in their field. Their bodies decompose and give nutrients to the soil so that the crops can grow better.

The money is found by some high school kids and they spend it on hookers and beer for a couple of weeks. Then they realize that they can use it to go to college. One goes to college for business. He becomes a successful owner of a small candle making company. The other goes to college to become a writer. He drops out senior year and overdoses on heroin three months later. He is buried in a cemetery and then the maggots eat him. The maggots become flies and die 24 hours later. The last kid goes to law school and opens his own firm. He starts to represent shady clients and is killed ten years later because he didn't defend a mafia goon well enough to get him out of jail. He is buried in a cemetery and then the maggots eat him. The maggots become flies and die 24 hours later.


In all seriousness, I completely understand why somebody wouldn't like the movie. I have also adjusted to the fact that Keith and I will almost never agree on movies. It's not that he is smarter than I or the other way around. It's just that we see different things in movies.

Ending Ruined

I hate assholes who say this because movies and books are different things and not to be compared, so I swear this is very nearly the only movie I will ever say this about, but the book is much better and you need to read it to understand what is actually going on. The movie didn't have an ending because the Coen Brothers butchered it. It wouldn't have taken that much more time to do it like in the book and have it make so much more sense. Instead they left everybody wondering, what the fuck just happened and in my opinion, ruined the whole movie.

People don't like to read, I get it. So I'm not expecting anyone to actually read it. However, if you are one of the few pretentious assholes (Spooky) who did like the movie, and I really can't understand how you would unless you really admire good foley work or whatever, and you like to read, I highly recommend the book. Its pretty short and has all of the same violence, plus I think things make a lot more sense.

On the other hand, you have to do one thing first (read the book or see the movie) and I'm not really sure that you can do both without the first really affecting your enjoyment of the second.

I'm honestly okay with NCFOM. I am an amateur screenwriter and I evaluated this screenplay for a project I had to do. The actual screenplay really is fantastic. It's very well written. However, I think the Cohen Brothers really good have made things a lot more clear in their screenshots. A lot of things were left out in the screenplay that could have quite possibly made this film a lot easier to understand.

I liked it, however now I feel like I need to read the book to fill in the holes. And I did have to read the Wikipedia Cliffs Notes to grab some details. I was mostly confused about why Anton was so successful as such an obviously bad hitman -- how far are you gonna get in this career if you keep killing your employers and flashing around to regular Joe Schmoes who are going to be able to ID you later on? Might as well be a cueball bald dude in a flashy suit.

Good day to you.
The Academy Awards are a sham. The only people (yes I know there's thousands of them, but listen) that vote are members of the Academy. To get chosen to be on the Academy you're nominated by other Academy members or you've won an Oscar. Either way it's inbreeding for a shit-for-brains organization. It should not be used to measure any artistic merit. You know what should be used? Public opinion. Who was the movie made for? Artists? No. It was made for the public. Therefore, the public should be able to judge these movies for what they're worth. We're all suckers for "Academy Award Nominated" movies that more often than not, suck balls.

And on to this ending stuff...

I thought 3:10 to Yuma had a stupid ending too, and it left a really bad taste in my mouth which made me dislike the movie a whole lot. The only good actor in that movie was the guy that place Charlie Prince. He did a great job in a ridiculous movie.

Bad endings ruin movies. It's the most important part to a story I think. One of the best/worst endings of all time was The Departed... you either were shocked at its amazingness or you hated how fucking retarded it was. I liked it, only bc I it's logically what would have followed a psychotic series of events; and even more psychotic ending.

Anyways... go fuck yourselves.

Fuck the Academy Awards. They're pretentious awards only voted on by pretentious people. Screw the academy and Oscar can find an uncomfortable place up Hollywood's disease ridden vagine.

Oh and Citizen Kane sucked balls. Anyone who tells you different...well...I totally fucking disagree with.

Spooky likes a movie where the serial killer gets away with it. People are surprised because...


I suspect that if the killer were the Texan and the cop was a Mexican this would be his favorite movie of all time.
