The last fifteen minutes of Rogue One deserved every conceivable Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, SAG Award, People's Choice Award, Teen Choice Award, Emmy, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize. A masterpiece.

These maybe aren't award-worthy, but man, I love a great rom-com ending. Nora Ephron in particular knew how to slam-dunk a romcom ending. The end of When Harry Met Sally gets me every time.
Oh yes! Those last 15 minutes had me feeling everything.
I will fight to the death for Rogue One's ending. It was just *chefs kiss*
Yes omg, the rest of Rogue One was entirely forgettable imo but I still think about how good that ending was.
Rogue One's ended blew me away. I had to sit and process it in the cinema, feeling like my insides had been scooped out with a melon baller. Jyn and Cassian on the beach....
The Descent, not the American version.
Ugh Se7en is so good. Freaked me the fuck out the first time I saw it and now I watch it whenever I get the chance to.

And now we know that Kevin Spacey didn't have to dig that deep to play the crazy killer.
yeaaah. i used to love kevin spacey for his ~unusual role choices, but turns out he's just an abusive asshole for real
mte 😭 i hate how his presence now ruins everything
God I love Gone Girl.

kay was lowkey stupid as hell, but those last few shots, clemenza going to kiss michael's hand, kay's realization that her husband smooth ass lied to her, and al shutting the door in her face. whew.
I just read this book (haven't seen the movie yet), and based on what I've heard about the movie it seems like that's the kind of scene that's way more powerful on the screen.
lmao oh so you’ve experience sonny’s mistress getting her pussy reupholstered too 😩

it’s such a powerful film and part 2 is even better, so i definitely recommend watching them as soon as you can.

From time to time I reenact the Brad Pitt scene just cause.

The Wailing
I loved the ending of Hell or High Water (though I loved the whole movie). The ending to Ex Machina was awesome, too. And although there was one scene in the middle of the movie that was more shocking, I won't forget the ending to Caché.
The Prestige. I just fucking love that movie but that ending. I think about it a lot
The Prestige is so, so good. Definitely my favorite Nolan film.

I don't get the Knives Out's hype. Honestly it was predictable, even with all the twists and turns, also so slow paced, and I thought Daniel Craig's performance was really bad, and it surprised me cause I used to think he was a decent actor.
The Matrix. Saw it in theaters, it was amazing!

So great. Bless Keanu's face.

Carol is the first thing I thought of ❤ And Before Sunset ❤❤ Moonlight should be higher imo.

I never got the CMBYN hype tbh. I looooved Suf's song playing during it and I got the emotional implications but it just wasn't all that imo.

And I overall dgaf about La La Land but I do think the ending is quite worth it and saves the movie for me. Otherwise, meh.

After reading the comments, yes to Rogue One, Infinity War, Billy Elliot, The Godfather, Se7en, Pan's Labyrinth and Atonement. I'd also like to add Big Fish <3
oh man, big fish... i've been meaning to rewatch that. i loved it the first time i saw it!
i love the ending of the corpse bride. it's nothing super unique, but it's just so sweet and beautiful to me.
Man, I only watched Portrait of a Lady on Fire in March, and I went in blind because I had read enough about the hype to be curious but I like to go in to these artsy films blind for the ~experience~. I knew going in that Adele Haenel had lots of Cesar noms and wins for someone her age, and as I watched the movie I was like "Yup, she's good" and then we got to the end and through the entire scene my brain went "How did she not get an Oscar nomination or Cesar win for this scene alone."

I mean, Noemie held her own, especially since she was in practically every scene of the movie, but my word that last long take of Heloise. Whew.

I liked listening to interviews of Adele after where she basically described her thought process for that long take as "Going through a slalom course". Yay sports metaphors lol.
Joker, CBYN and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
