A Format of Conclusions That’s Getting Old? *SPOILERS*
A look at similarities between some recent franchise conclusions.
So I watched TDKR. Loved it. But I did notice one flaw. Let’s go over some of the recent franchise conclusions: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1&2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and The Dark Knight Rises.
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1&2 (Conclusion to the Harry Potter franchise.)
The trio flees from Voldemort into the wilderness. Ron gets separated with the other 2 because of an argument. Ron returns to rescue Harry, destroying a Hocrux. Death Eaters take control of Hog Warts. Voldemort obtains the elder wand. Trio returns to Hog Warts. The trio & other good guys fight bad guys. Elder Wand kills Voldemort. Happily ever after.
2. Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Conclusion to the Transformers franchise. I hope.)
Autobots tries to locate pillars on the moon. Sentinel Prime betrays the Autobots and joins the Decepticons. Decepticons army summoned to earth w/pillars. Humans blame the Autobots. Autobots are sent out to space and supposedly killed. More Decepticons come. They take control of Chicago. Sam arrives to Chicago, finding the Autobots alive. Autobots & humans fight the Decepticons. Megatron killed. Happily ever after.
3. The Dark Knight Rises (conclusion to The Dark Knight Trilogy)
Simple Plot (I’ll try to reveal as little spoilers as I can): Bruce returns as Batman. He fights Bane in the sewer. Batman put into prison. Bane obtains a nuclear bomb. Bane takes control of Gotham. Cops are trapped underground w/ the mayor dead and the “Banearchists” rising. Batman returns to Gotham to fight Bane with Catwoman & rescued cops. Bane dies from the batpod. Batman supposedly dies from the explosion. Alfred sees Bruce & Selina in a café. Happily ever after.
You see what’s wrong here? All of the plots are similar!
1. The despair.
HPatDH: Ron leaves the trio.
TDotM: Autobots die.
TDKR: Cops trapped underground w/ the mayor dead and the “Banearchists” rising
2. Heroes return after leaving.
3. Villains taking control of good guy’s home.
HPatDH: Hog Warts
4. Large Group VS. Large Group.
HPatDH: Students and teachers VS Death Eaters & Voldemort.
TDotM: Autobots & humans VS Decepticons
TDKR: Batman, Catwoman &cops VS Bane, League of Shadows, & “Banearchists”
5. Bad guys die.
TDKR: Bane and the surprise villain (yeah, it’s very surprising)
6. Happy ending.
HpatDH: trio married
TDotM: Decepticons defeated
TDKR: Bruce lives
I enjoyed the three movies, but this problem will have to be fixed in the future with other conclusions.
Sorry if there are mistakes.
