I don't think I could actually pick just one ending... so here are three

The Blues Brothers
Jake and Elwood jamming to Jailhouse Rock while incarcerated. I can say no more.

Hard Candy
Through the entire movie I was unsure of which one of them would "win." I love not knowing.

The Boondock Saints
That last scene in the courthouse, and then the three sitting in the hotel room was completely bad ass

A recent great ending to a movie, Batman Begins:

[last lines]
Jim Gordon: And what about escalation?
Bruce Wayne: Escalation?
Jim Gordon: We get semi-automatic weapons, they get automatics. We get Kevlar body armor, they get armor-piercing rounds. And *you're* wearing a mask and jumping off rooftops. Take this guy: armed robbery, double homicide. Has a taste for theatrics, like you. Leaves a calling card.
[Gordon presents Batman with a clear plastic evidence bag containing what appears to be a single playing card; Batman turns it over in his hand to reveal a "Joker"]
Bruce Wayne: I'll look into it.
[turns away from Gordon and walks toward the rooftop ledge]
Jim Gordon: I never got to say, "Thank you."
Bruce Wayne: [looks back to Gordon] And you'll never have to.

An amazing film.

I recently re-watched Se7en after a long while and I must say, it still tops that list for me. It's so well-done, from the climax as well.

Vertigo. That fuckin' freaked me out! Maybe it was my fear of heights.

The Usual Suspects! Shot-by-shot it was mind-blowing.

I'll second that. It's been many years since I last saw that movie. But it's something that you just don't forget.

Se7en is another movie that lingers in your mind long after the credits have rolled.

Descent. I liked the ending.

*SPOILERS*



































1. Final kiss on the bell tower, then she falls.... and dies for real - Vertigo
2. The farewell scene in Casablanca
3. Starchild in 2001: A Space Odyssey
4. Rosebud revelation - Citizen Kane
5. "Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown" - Chinatown (those final moments are the most tragic scenes in any movie)
6. The flower girl sees The Little Tramp for the first time - City Lights
7. Revelation of Keyser Soze's true identity in The Usual Suspects
8. Norma Desmond's close up in Sunset Boulevard
9. "What's in the fuckin' box?!" - Se7en
10. The ending to Psycho (excluding the psychiatrist's analysis, that is; the scene in the cell is chilling, particularly the image of "mother's" skull imprinted on his face as the screen dissolves)



Most recently, the anti traditional-Hollywood-good-guys-win-every-fucking-time conclusions to both No Country for Old Men (don't really understand where all the complaints are coming from, it was very appropriate) and especially The Mist (shook me up...literally said "Holy....fuck" when that happened) left me extremely depressed, but completely satisfied.

Not sure about my 10 favorites but City Lights has the best ending I've ever seen in a film. The endings to Dr. Strangelove and The Third Man are spectacular as well. Also the Raging Bull-esque ending to Boogie Nights should probably be mentioned as well.

Kevin Smith established in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back that any time you can close a movie with a rousing rendition of 'Jungle Love' by Morris Day & The Time, it's FTW.

Transformers

Optimus Primes call to action for the other autobots "out there in the Universe" chokes me up every time.

The ending to Carrie has become cliche but thats because it was so iconic and effective.

I'm going to go in a bit of a different direction with... Dazed and Confused
Driving to Houston to buy Aerosmith tickets to Foghat's Slow Ride. Linklater wanted Zeppelin's Rock and Roll but he couldn't afford it. To me, Slow Ride builds to a perfect crescendo as the credits start to roll. It fits the feel of the film perfectly, and is ultimately a much better choice than Rock and Roll.

The Departed

Ending scene with Damon's classic reaction to Whalberg's appearence in his apartment at the end. Damon gives Whalberg a good look over, then just shrugs and says "okay". By that reaction I think even he himself knows that's he's a scumbag that's disgusted and appauled by his own actions(by the snitching, people he has killed or gotten killed). That was a brilliantly acted scene and gave good closure to the movie. Everything about The Departed was pure genius.

The ending of Come and See is up there.

Spoiler:
Seeing Hitler's rise to power in reverse as Florya shoots his picture becomes all the more profound as we end up with an image of Hitler as a baby before cutting to an eerie shot of Florya's weathered, teary-eyed face, unable to bring himself to fire a shot at baby Hitler... all while Mozart's Requiem plays in the background.
