The 14 Best Movie Endings of All Time

Redditor NHazellnut recently asked what was the best movie ending you've ever seen. Reddit was right on the money with these fifteen incredible films with even better endings.

Jim Carrey in The Truman Show is brilliant, and several Redditors agree it has one of the best movie endings ever. Truman was adopted, and his entire life broadcasts as a reality TV show in a made-up world around him.

It's a period-time drama highlighting Southern California's late 19th and early 20th-century oil boom. I'll spare you any spoilers with context, but Redditor Rob_Reason expressed, “There Will Be Blood, bowling alley scene, just wow.”

Christopher Nolan‘s Memento (2000) tells a twisty story of a man experiencing Anterograde amnesia. Leonard's (Guy Pearce) short-term memory loss prevents him from creating new memories. 


After unknowingly leaving a clue behind at a heist, the LAPD turns up the Heat. Redditor junkyardpig expressed, “With God Moving Over the Face of Waters by Moby playing. One of my favorite movies and endings, and probably my favorite ending song.”


Based on Stephen King‘s 1980 novella of the same name, The Mist (2007) tells a captivating story about small town Bridgton, Maine. An unknown bloodthirsty species of monsters hiding in the mistiness of a freak storm that brought them in.

It's filled with spine-tingling moments and one of the most blindsiding endings in film history. Redditor Obi_Wan_Benobi confessed, “The Sixth Sense absolutely fried my brain. It got me big time. I walked out of the theater like I was drunk.”
