When at the end, you don't know what happens to everybody?

Don't get me wrong, I have a great imagination, but when it comes to movies I want to know what happens to everybody.

For example, I just finished the 2007 remake of THE MIST. All in all, it wasn't bad and the ending was definitely surprising. However I didn't like how I didn't know what happened to the people at the grocery store or the first group that went out. Now I can probably imagine the first group (Led by the lawsuit happy black guy) was PROBABLY killed, but I have no evidence that he really was, because the girl who left before him lived! I'm gonna spend the rest of my day wondering about how those people got out or not...

Blah, up for 20 hours and can't sleep.

no...I like it actually. I don't like when writers feel the need to explain every little effin thing in movies. I'd rather use my brain/imagination to interpret what happens. That's what drives me crazy with shows like "CSI"...every little detail must be over explained and presented to the audience, like we're a bunch of 1st graders.

I also like to use my imagination but if you actually watch the movie you do find out what happened to that first group... So I agree with powerfreak:thumbsup:

It doesn't leave much wiggle room for any sequels if you tie up loose ends!! Very rare is the studio nowadays to finish a story at the end of a movie in the event the first is so successful that a "franchise" is born. Problem is now is that if the first movie is a hit, then you know there's at least TWO more coming because they don't know when to stop drinking from the same water hole. How do you think this Transformers Edition Camaro came about anyway? :lol:

I think maybe the first movie sequel might have been "Son of the Sheik" what was it, about 80 or 90 years ago? And things didn't get tied up at the end in the first one (The Sheik) either.
