Monster Monday

Zira: What will he find out there, Dr. Zaius?
Zaius: His destiny.

One of the best movie endings ever. God bless Rod Serling.

And here I'm standing up and cheering, echoing your ending EVER. (Freaked me out as a kid, tho.)

Eric Shonkwiler said...

Mmm, Nova. A misogynist's dreamgirl.

Clowncar said...

Mona, it really is a stunner. I can only think of a handful of others. 6th Sense pulled it off. Frailty as well, though I'm not sure anyone saw that but me. That whole Rosebud-being-a-sled thing is pretty cool too.

Hot, submissive, can't speak, always dressed in a leather bikini. Yeah, a little misogynist, E.

Mother of Invention said...

Guess that applies to all of us!

Would be neat to do a study of first and last lines in books and movies. I need to see more movies though...I've missed a lot of good ones.

Nancy Dancehall said...

Wow. I'm like the anti-Nova; average, dominant, loud-mouthed and I don't own a leather bikini.

I...have never watched Planet of the Apes. *gasp* One of those weird gaps in my education. Anyway, thanks for ruining the ending for me. *wink*

Maggie said...

Nancy you're funny. And you should totally get a leather bikini. Its tops on my summer wardrobe list. Heh.

Clowncar, you rock the blogs dude. I love these clips.

Clowncar said...

Ms Pants, it's not a great movie, only a great ending, so now there's no reason for you to see it. Mea Culpa. I'm guilty. And sorry. On the bright side, Benji sez you're hot, so go buy a leather bikini and you're half-way to Nova-dom!

Thanks Mag. Didn't know if there was an appetite for bad sci-fi clips out there. Now I know.

There is no more iconic ending in a movie or book EVER, is there? How many times have you seen that same image in cartoons, other movies (Cloverfield's promo poster, anyone?) and...whew. It still gives me chills.
