    Yup! Went with a friend to see it at the theater. Almost as bad as seeing "Bridge To Terabitha" on the airplane.

    Travolta's character was a inthoughtyadied already as seen in PF..... I do remember that he reappears again later.
    As for "COA" in reference to Meg Ryan's character I wanted to break something.

    Exclamation Re: Characters in Movies that died ON YOU... Noooooooooooooooo!

    Gandalf the grey. Wot! He can't die, they need him. Of course he returned as Gandalf the white and was better than ever!


    A quote...
    Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

    Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the ring in which case you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought.
    Life is either an adventure... or you're not doing it right!!!

    This was on cable this morning. The Elvis Presley character n his first movie, LOVE ME TENDER (1956). His most substantial movie, compared with the lightweight fluff over the rest of his Hollywood career.

    That's Joss's style, ever since he helmed Buffy.

    I thought the death would end with Book, but his death wasn't that much of a shock value.

    Was watching The Green Berets tonight and it dawned on me the Jim Hutton character kind of had a senseless death at the end of the movie.

    In the Sixth Sense when we find out Bruce Willis was really dead, that blew me away.

    Default Movies that died ON YOU?

    In all my years of movie-watching, only once has a movie ever died on me. It was at the Cannery, and at the urging of a couple of close friends, I saw Terrence Malick's The New World. About an hour into it, the film broke or melted or...something. We were given refunds AND passes for future movies. I still haven't seen the rest of it.

    Steven Segal in that movie about the hijacked airplane rescued by the guys going up through a tube from a stealth fighter flying under the jet. The one with Kurt Russel and John Leguizamo.

    Wow, I wonder if this whole thread should be a spoiler.......

    Another Hillary Swank movie where she died was in Million Dollar Baby.
    How about those freeze frame endings such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid or Thelma & Louise? Not a movie, but the viewer has to make their own ending of what happens to Tony Soprano.

    Has anyone ever noticed this....?

    If a love story is a primary plot element and the main character and his/her love interest has not had sex, both will make it to the end of the movie. That's not to say that if they do consummate, they'll die, but restraint will guarantee they'll be around for the closing credits.

    In Titanic, When Jack and Rose got busy in the back of that car, I kept thinking "Well now you've done it, Jack. We already know Rose survives."

    In "The Last Samurai", when Algren was being mowed down by a Gatling gun, I leaned over to my wife and assured her he was going to survive.

    It seems Hollywood finds it too cruel to kill off a love story if they haven't had a chance to consummate. Can anyone think of a movie where a love story is a primary plot element and this hasn't been true?

    The Samuel L. Jackson character in "Deep Blue Sea." He was one of the main characters, and seemed to have a lot of history behind him. So it was somewhat of a shock when he was devoured in one gulp by the shark less than half-way into the movie.

    Actually, the guy wasn't wearing red. Peter Preston died while wearing engineering white in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. He just so happens to be Scotty's nephew.

    Tom Hanks dying in Saving Private Ryan was hard to watch.
    Same movie, different endings showed the difference between American films and European films. The Vanishing had two different endings in the American version and the Dutch version.
