Can't believe I forgot this one: the ending of The Time Travelers (1964):

There is also the end of Repo Man where the credits roll down instead of up.
The opening credits of THX 1138 do the same thing.

BENEATH The Planet of the Apes has the alltime greatest movie ending.

And re: The Omega Man...not only the final shot, but the rest of humanity can only be saved by his blood. Damn I love that movie.

edit: Throw in Soylent Green's ending, and GD Heston..you the man!!
Well it's lucky they fished the bottle of serum Neville rescued out of the fountain really

But yeah, if for no other reason than those three films I love Heston.

Masterful.
A great sequence...except it's not the the last shot of the movie. The last shot is Marion's car being dragged from the lake.
Except there's a fade from Norman's face to the car, so it sort of is nonetheless...



Here's one of my favorites... a free cookie to the first person to name it!

That's from Zodiac, a favorite of mine.

That guy (Jimmi Simpson) in the pic went to my high school (Hackettstown, NJ) too. I knew him when he wasn't a celebrity!

^Fantastic film. Still one of my favorite of the last ten years.

The last shots of "Contact" and "Ran" are pretty damned great.

Just thinking of music tied with the shot, the ending to Full Metal Jacket is quite memorable and sums up the themes of the movie quite well.

However, I tend to disagree with the premise since there are great movies without memorable endings and bad movies with memorable endings (and everything in between).

Re: Movies: that last shot

^Agreed. I believe 2 ends with a highway at night...or does it? Depends on what version you watch.

Thelma & Louise was of course said with tongue firmly in cheek.
