    I know we've all heard what a "horrible" ending NCFOM had.

    Here's your chance... have at it:

    Roll the credits right from the beginning. That movie was a snoozefest.

    I have two:

    1) Dumb Bell sticks the money under his mobile home and DOESN'T try to carry water back to the dead guy. He uses the money sparingly to increase his standard of living, but doesn't make any ostentatious purchases. After about ten years, he has a good job a paid for home, nice car, family, dogs, cats, etc and lives happily ever after. The End.

    2) Bad guy(Anton) walks in the service station and starts his psycho coin flipping routine. Station owner pulls a revolver and shoots 3 to COM while saying "Flip this, you SOB!!" (After all, this IS Texas). Cops come. Discover the Cow Killer is the same weapon used in other homicides. The End.

    I was kind of hoping the car wreck would knock some sense into him and the next scene you see is a repentant Anton reading a Bible preparing for the ministry while working at a cattle ranch.:rofl:

    When Lewelyn's wife finds Anton waiting for her at home, she pulls out a Derringer, or revolver, and shoots him in the face.

    I am not among those that feel this story needs a different ending.

    Chigur came to kill the guy's wife but instead she stripped off her clothes and they got it on like Donkey Kong. Suddenly the Sheriff busted in with his wheelgun drawn, but instead of shooting them, he'd throw the piece down and joined the fray.

    Everybody lives happily ever after.

    Don't know what to suggest for an ending. On commented it was a snooze fest. Compared to CGI action movie maybe, but I loved it. Very few movies I can watch more that once, This one I can. I thought it was a little hookie to have him go back to give water, and really did not care for the ending.
    But it was a great movie.

    Well, considering the story isn't about Llewellyn or Chigurh but instead Ed Tom Bell, I think it ended great.
    He was a sherrif but retired because he was basically "too old for that $h!+". He's having breakfast with his wife and talking about a dream he had.

    I guess they just should have included some text that reads "if you think this movie ended stupidly, then you need to stick to summer popcorn action flicks. The End"

    Do we really need two No Country threads going at the same time?

    The only way the ending could be better is if somehow included a bunch of strippers and the Predator.

    What about the Sheriff, Chighur and the wife all went to become Pirates of Caribbean?

    Sorry, but that movie was a story about the sheriff about as much as the "Wizard of Oz" was a story about one of the flying monkeys....


    Edit to add: However, different people like different movies and that's OK.

    Deputy arrests Chigar, puts him in cell.

    Bell no longer required to buff tile floor of boot heel scuffs.

    Lewellyn's mother in law dies earlier in the movie. Lewellyn get's his wife to safety with the money. Lewellyn and Chigur kill each other in the showdown. The sheriff retires.


    The last scene is Lewellyns wife in her big nice house, making eyes at the ripped pool boy while sitting next to the pool sipping a margarita.
