3 1 4 2 is my order.

Anyways, I watched Savages, the recent Oliver Stone flick last night. For anyone who hasn't seen it, spoilers to follow.

Spoil:
I really wish Oliver still had some balls and stuck with the book/1st/"imagined" ending instead of the typical Hollywood copout ending. He was definitely afraid of audiences leaving the theater sad. Having no winners and losers, and every character dying fit the story a lot better. There's no way a character made out to be as villainous as Lado (Benicio Del Toro) should've made it out alive. I get wanting the audience to be like "ooh he's still out there -- scary." But showing O that he ***** her sealed the deal where we needed to see him die. The movie was awesome sans the last three minutes.

tl;dr: Should've kept the fitting, sadder ending. The happy Hollywood one was lame.
