The Best Movie Endings

Hello to all!  I thought it would be fun to share with you all some of my favorite movie endings.  Some endings are good but I am going to list the ones I think are the best.  Let me know if we have any of the same ones.

The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King has probably the saddest movie ending or one of the saddest.  But I love it.  It rounds up all the times they shared together and all the adventures they went through to come to this point.  You don't want it to end.  You don't want to say good-bye.  But that is what makes it a great have connected with the characters, you shared in their turmoil, in their joy, you shared in their grief and had a connection with all of them.  That's what gets me.

But then you see Frodo smile and know that he is going to a better place.  And Sam...dear Sam. He goes home to a beautiful family and ends with these words, "Well, I'm back."  This ending makes me cry, but it is good.  I love this world so much.  That is why I will keep watching the movies over and over again.  You never lose that feeling when you hear the music, you see the Shire, you feel...home.  "I will not say, 'do not weep,' for not all tears are an evil." Thanks Gandalf.  I'm glad I have your permission. *wipes tears*

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.  I love the new ending to this one.  The old one had the older man who played Darth Vader be the blue ghost thing.  In this one it has the younger Anakin Skywalker which I think is way better.  It is so good!  Seeing him young standing there with Yoda and Obi-wan.  Love this ending because in the end no words need to be said.  You see that Anakin in the end was a good guy.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.  What an ending!  It brings us around full circle to the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring.  I love that!!  And then Billy Boyd singing "I Saw the Light."  I cried so hard at the movie theater, and I kept crying on the way home.  I think it was because...not just that Thorin, Fili, and Kili died, it was because it really was the end.  The end of all of the movies.  *tears*  Even though it is the beginning of the others.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  I LOVE this ending.  Sadly, I couldn't find a video for it in English.  It is so good though.  "In your world I am known by another name.  You must learn to know me by it.  That is the very reason you were brought to Narnia.  For knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there." - Aslan.  And that name is Jesus.  That is why I love this ending so much!  Because I know Him by the other name. :)

 These are my favorite movie scenes.  I love all of these stories so much.  They teach us about friendship, loyalty, courage, and more.  They inspire us to do great things. To not be afraid to go on an adventure like Bilbo.  To not be afraid to take the ring to Mordor like Frodo.  To not be afraid like Luke to leave his home behind and move forward, to fight for what's right.  To go through the open door like Lucy, and follow Aslan, no matter what others say, and to be brave and have courage like Peter, Susan, and Edmund.  These are the stories that stay with us.  I shall end this post with the words of Samwise....


  1. Ohhh, I love this post! *hugs it* These are definitely some of my favorite movie endings, as well! (Especially The Return of the King. Sheesh. I tear up just thinking about it.) And The Battle of the Five Armies! Oh, gosh, was THAT emotional...

    Lovely choices! I would add to my personal list two of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, The Curse of the Black Pearl and At World's End. I can't decide between the two because I love them both so much! ^_^

    1. Yes, it was very emotional...

      I like The Curse of the Black Pearl and On Stranger Tides for pirates movies. TCOTBP is my favorite though. :)

      Thank you so much!! And welcome to The Day The Lord Has Made! Forgive me for not welcoming you sooner. I'm glad you're here. :)

    2. TCOTBP was my favorite Pirates movie, too. I haven't seen On Stranger Tides yet, but I'd like to!

      Thanks so much! I really enjoy your blog so far :D

    3. It's really good! Thank you! I enjoy yours too. :)

    Thanks for this!

    1. Thank you so much, Olivia! No, you are not alone, I love that ending! It's so good. Thank you! :D
