To each his own. I thought Sinise played that character very well and I really wanted to see him finish the character arc. As to what movies endings I think need to be trimmed...I can't think of any that I'd like to see end earlier in the film as it already is, but two movies that I think should have been rewritten and trimmed down towards the end are the Pelham 123 remake and Appaloosa.
No way Ransom should have ended like that. I mean, it would have been a messed up little twist true enough, but then the whole matter of the reward money would have been left open. Just sort of implied that Shaker got it. People would have been pissed that the bad guy got away and the reward was never resolved. Shaker was pissed off, unstable and greedy enough to keep the film going to where it went. And Mel deserved to get a few hits in after all.
I am very...very...very disappointed with the new Doctor Who they cast. What, is he Benjamin Button now, getting younger with each regeneration? I thought they might have the balls to cast the black actor everyone was talking about but I guess we'll have to deal with Doctor Snotnose instead.
