Every now and then, I pop in my copy of The Fly (1986) and go on an emotional roller coaster. You see, the film–assuming you have not seen it–is not just a horror tale. Sure, there's plenty of body horror. But there's an emotional resonance as well and Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis sell the hell out of it.

That ending? Oh my... it's devastating. Yes, it hits me right in the soul. And it's thankfully not the only film out there that manages to land the ending!

People told us all about their favorites after Redditor Krmsyn asked the online community,

"Movie buffs of Reddit, what are the greatest last 10 minutes of any movie in your opinion?"

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1968)

"The standoff in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Everything about that scene, from the cinematography, the score, to the tension is sheer perfection."


An excellent choice! That music! It's hypnotic.

Se7en (1995)

"Se7en is one that comes to mind. Granted it may be more like 20 mins but that ending still messes me up."



Probably one of the most unsettling movie moments of the 1990s.

The Prestige (2006)

"The Prestige. What a roller coaster that ending is!"


It is indeed! Probably the most underrated Christopher Nolan film, assuming you don't count the rather underseen Following (1998).

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2003)

"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The tapes are absolutely tearjerking. 'What a loss to spend that much time with someone, only to find out that she's a stranger.”"


Ouch. This one still hurts. It's beautiful.

Prisoners (2013)

"Prisoners. What a film, what an ending."


I second this one. What a film. It's probably one of the creepiest films to come out in the last decade.

"The Mist. That ending is sudden and brutal."


I love this film and love the ending. It's horrifying.

Whiplash (2014)

"I just saw Whiplash for the 1st time. The last scene was absolutely incredible."


Whiplash will... give you whiplash, for lack of a better word. Quite the film and quite the ending.

The Truman Show (1998)

"The Truman Show. I love that movie so much."


This is a pretty flawless film. I find it funny, sad, creepy, unnerving... so many feelings all at once. And that ending is the icing on the cake.

The Last of the Mohicans (1992)

"The Last Of The Mohicans. The music, the cinematography, the narrative. It all comes together rather nicely."


I feel like this is a rather underrated film these days. Madeleine Stowe and Daniel Day Lewis work movie magic.

The Green Mile (1999)

"The Green Mile. God I just rewatched that for the first time in decades the other night and I was full on snot-down-the-face ugly crying at the end there."


I also rewatched this recently! It's on Netflix, for those of you who wish to revisit it. It's splendid.

There are few feelings that are as pleasurable as seeing a good film. And then when that same film manages to knock the ending out of the park? Even better.

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?


Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
