    Monty Python's usage of cliff hanging endings in the films

    Other than joking with the audience or having lack of creativity, are there any other reasons as to why the creators of Monty Python usually end their films with cliff hangers? For those who don’t remember what they are, here is what I mean:

    1.In "The Holy Grail", the film ends with a blatent TV freeze ending just as King Arthur and his knights of the round table were close to obtaining the holy grail.

    2. In "Life of Brian", the film ends with an extreme long shot of Brian and all the other men who were crucified singing "Always look on the Bright Side of Life."

      I must admit, out of all the ideas between opposites, the idea of the shadow is far by the most complex. I’m probably gonna have to read this over to get a better understanding. Anyway, thanks so much for giving advice.

      Working with The Shadow: A Writer's Guide

      I definitely agree with you amdeit88. I’ll need to see these animes myself in order to get a sense as to how “bad” they really are. Personally, by the looks of the description, I don’t see any of these animes as bad a “School Days”, which by the way is only good when it finally ends.

      Anyway, like I said, in order to understand why certain shows/movies/books get the reputation that they deserve, it’s best to try them out first. In all honesty, I don’t know if I really want to read “Fifty Shades of Grey” just to see how poorly written and cliche it is, but I’m just only saying what I generally believe in(three cheers for being a hypocrite! Hip, hip, HOORAY!).

      P.S. For those of you who don’t know what “School Days” is, it’s a pointless, melodramatic, romance anime about a guy who falls in love with a girl, followed by his friend who tries to help him get the girl of his dreams, but ends up lusting after other girls attending school, including the girl of his dreams and his friends. Eventually all of that ends with…I’m not gonna spoil it. Let’s just say that the only thing worth watching about it is its ending.

      Good advice and reasons you addressed! I didn’t realize how a busy work schedule can lead to procrastination, as well as self-doubt(to some extent). I’m so glad that I found this. Thanks Kenneth Merchant!
