In Honor of Yashji’s Birthday, a Discussion of Film Endings!

This is in honor of Yashji because I think we can all agree he had TERRIBLE endings! Big picture they were fine, the right people ended up together and all that. But the specifics of how they played out tended to be “and then a plane explodes for no reason” kind of randomness.
