    I love open-ended conclusions for some books AND movies. Obviously if I want to watch something mindless I'd rather have a conclusion, but I like when I am able to use my own imagination to form a conclusion. I would assume the movie of Cell will have more of a defined conclusion, and most likely that will translate better to the screen for that movie

      My problem with Cell wasn't so much with the open-ending, but what I felt was a rather lackluster third act. There was a tonal shift that occurred after a character's death that I felt the book couldn't recover from. I thought the actual ending of the book worked fine. I have no problem with open-endings as long as they are pulled off properly.

        Sock Monkey,

        Don't take this the wrong way, but you might want to use Spoiler Tags around your references to The Shawshank Redemption.

          I fixed it. That said though on a movie / book that old I'm not really sure spoiler tags are necessary.

              I would not have wrapped it with a spoiler since I would everyone had read the story and watched the movie by now. With that said

                  I feel vindicated.

                    Well, I got yelled at on goodreads for saying "Rosebud is Kane's sled"!

                        It was a reaction to someone complaining that I had made a post about Wizard & Glass being one of Roland's mistakes (both the events and the telling of them to his ka-tet). I had been used to the one-click spolier tags on the CD forum. The idea of typing out spoiler tags was...unthinkable!

                          LOL! I bet they loved you at goodreads. That's like revealing the "surprise" about Jaye Davidson's character in The Crying Game.

                            Love your signature quote, T-Dog. I felt like I had lost IQ points from watching Malibu's Most Wanted!

                              Thanks Squire!

                              LOL! You have my sympathy for sitting through Malibu's Most Wanted. That "comedy" should come with the government health warning "may cause numbness of the brain."

                                Well, I just avoid anything that has Jamie Kennedy in it now!
