Famous Last Words

For the last ever post on MostlyFilm, we’ve assembled as many current and former contributors as possible to show you their favourite endings from the movies. Technically, there may be spoilers.

So, that’s it from us. Thanks to all of you out there for reading over the last seven years! It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to share all this with you. Well, mostly.

SEVEN OF SEVEN – A Magnificent Seven

Each day during our final week, one of our regular writers will pick out seven highlights from our seven years of existence. Today, it’s the turn of Indy Datta, who has been reviewing new releases for Europe’s Best Website for all seven of those years. Actually, scratch that, because the lazy bastard stopped after reviewing Creed two years ago. Maybe he gave up after that to pursue his true metier as a predictor of best supporting actor Oscars. After he recovered from that burn, we asked him to sum up his 7 years of watching and reviewing.
