Re: Any movies out there where the antagonists win?

In The Mouth Of Madness, sort of. It's more of a "Everything goes crazy," movie than one with a specific antagonist, but the dude does fail to stop the Monstapocalypse. The Descent, British ending. The American one is almost if not just as depressing, but someone does get away - assuming t...

Re: "Spirit" Discussion

For me, this was a little of Wall-E, a little of Moon, and a little of Whiskey ("Was I my best?") from the Dollhouse episode Epitaph One, although on Mars instead of underground.
