F#$@ This Ending!

Every story has an ending and everyone has an ending that they hate. Perhaps it's a lack of detail about what happens to the story's characters. Perhaps the writer uses a tired old cliche to get the ending they want. Maybe it's just flat-out stupid, especially with how much smarter the rest of the story was. For me there's two endings in mind, one I don't see as bad but can understand why everyone does and the other which pulls something out of nowhere that sadly taints the story on a whole. The former's the ending to Stephen King's Dark Tower series.
Spoiler:

The other is the ending to an anime called Blue Gender, a series shown once on Adult Swim and probably for a very good reason.
Spoiler:

So, what book's/movie's/TV show's ending grinds your gears?

    I really liked that book, but it was because of the voice and the characters more than the story

    and yeah the ending is pretty ridiculous.

    Remember when The Lovely Bones came out and got reallllly popular and everyone was reading it?

    My mother read it and hated it, so I never bothered.

    Then the movie was on TV here, and I didn't realize what I was watching at first and got kind of caught up, thinking it was a crime drama (a genre which I unabashedly love).
    Spoiler:

    I wanted to throw something at the TV when it was over.

    I second YaYa

    Which is frustrating, because dammit, Battlestar Galactica was the first show that I actually bothered to watch every episode, and I even did it when every episode first aired

    And dammit, it was almost the perfect show

    I was watching the series finale on TV when it first aired, and halfway through I actually stopped myself and said, "Holy shit, I think they've did it. I think they've made the perfect TV show, beginning to end."

    But then the last half of the finale aired, and when it ended I was so pissed.

    I almost stopped watching TV altogether, just because of how bad that last hour was.

    Who cares what anyone else says or thinks of you? At the end, how big you smile, how hard you dance, matters. Sounds like a victory to me.

    Yeah the movie is total garbage which is a real shame because the book is excellent.

    The movie seriously misses the entire point. It's like it has a bunch of the same scenes from the book, but doesn't tell the same story at all.

    That would probably have been even more heartbreaking to be honest. I'm a romantic at heart and it would have destroyed me.

    One ending that really made me furious, simply because it hurt my heart to watch because I really got into it, felt for all of the characters, and thought they got a bad deal?

    Holy shit, that ending was so depressing

    The funny thing is that Stephen King LIKED this ending.
    King said, "The ending is such a jolt—wham! It's frightening. But people who go to see a horror movie don't necessarily want to be sent out with a Pollyanna ending."

    I liked the ending, too. Hell, I loved it.

    But it was a definite kick in the balls if you cared for any of the main characters at all.
