Or, is anyone else noticing that mainstream (advertised) movies are leaning towards endings that are more true to life as opposed to your blanket “happy ending”. I generally only watch movies that are popular, mostly because they’re easy to find, and ten years ago I’d be hard pressed to think of a movie without some sort of happy ending. Yes, there are those off the wall movies but I only discover those through recommendations and such. But, for the popular mainstream stuff, this seems to be becoming a popular pattern, this unhappy ending business.
Just my personal observation.
