These 5 Shows Should Be Remade Because Their Endings Were Really Potong Stim

Published

on

In case you haven’t heard, Netflix now lets users decide how shows and movies end… and they are going to try out this choose-your-ending interactivity with their hit cult series, Black Mirror!

And since Netflix has gotten the ball rolling, we’ve decided to list five other programmes that could really use some rewriting. We’ll tell you what’s wrong with them, but you can go ahead and let the viewers choose how these should end, alright?

WARNING: There are spoilers (obviously) ahead.

1. Lost (2004 – 2010)

Lost made us and everyone else feel lost. Don’t get us wrong; the series started off on a really high note. The scenes inside the airplane just before it came crashing down, and of the passengers looking for their loved ones in the rubble, were iconic…

… but truthfully, the writers of Lost didn’t have an end in mind when they started the first season. It didn’t help too that the writers had a habit of writing themselves into dead ends, and by the end of the series, there were so many open threads that there was no way to tie them all up.

Were they all dead? Who is Jacob who guards the light? And how is the smoke monster his brother? See? Lost.

2. How I Met Your Mother (2005 – 2014)

We loved HIMYM. That’s why we hate the finale so much.

Come on, after nine seasons of convincing us that Ted and Robin couldn’t possibly work out, and that Barney and Robin were meant for each other, the writers totally ruined it with the final episode.

Although they cast the perfect person as Mother—someone everyone was happy to see Ted end up with, they spoiled the plot by adding a last minute montage of the Mother being dead, Barney and Robin splitting up, and Ted deciding if Robin was the one after all! What?!

3. Gossip Girl (2007 – 2012)

Dan Humphrey as Gossip Girl makes NO SENSE. They tried to explain it, but there were too many plot holes.

If Jenny had known her brother was Gossip Girl the whole time, why did he publish so many bad rumours about her? And how was she OK with that? And why did Dan have to look fake-surprised at Gossip Girl’s posts that he was posting, in his room, by himself?!

It would have all ended well if they didn’t reveal who Gossip Girl was at all. No one cared at that point anyway. All we wanted was for Blair and Chuck to be together.

4. Split (2016)

Split was probably one of M Night Shyamalan’s best films. James McAvoy’s ability to juggle multiple roles, some of which were more sinister than others, was just amazing. The film also featured some strong women roles, which is quite rare in thrillers.

That being said, the Beast deciding not to eat Anya-Taylor-Joy’s character was a too-abrupt switch after the slow build up of the story. Of course, we also expected some kind of twist at the end, as is customary in an M Night Shyamalan movie, but to find out that the entire movie is just the origin of Shyamalan’s earlier movie, Unbreakable, totally undercut all the action in Split.

5. Twilight Saga (2008 – 2012)

Sure, people will say the whole saga was pretty crappy. But, if they had a good ending, they could have actually salvaged the series to some extent. Technically, they already had die-hard fans. All they had to do was win everyone else over with a good ending.

In the final installment, there was so much potential in the set up of werewolves teaming up with good vampires to battle the bad vampires. Plus, the final battle was also really epic to watch! For once, there were consequences in this life, and people were fighting for their survival…

… and then they threw all of that away. All of our emotional investment was for nothing because it was all just a ‘dream’.

Someone bring these shows back to life for a do-over! We need proper closure.

Yuna Urges Visitors to Stop Trespassing “Forevermore” Music Video Locations

Malaysian singer-songwriter, Yuna, has recently garnered a lot of praise for highlighting local Malaysian elements in a fresh, modern way through her music video for her single, Forevermore.

The opening scene, especially, caught the attention of her fans for sporting the nostalgic-inducing Proton Saga set against a rural petrol station in Perlis – something atypical of music videos today, which prefer to boast extravagant cars and luxuries.

However, this attention came as a double-edged sword for the owner of the petrol station who recently received a wave of unbecoming visitors climbing over the gate for a picture opportunity of the popularized petrol station.

via GIPHY

According to a report by Astro Awani, the owner of the petrol station tweeted Yuna for her help to urge the public to stay behind the gate if they want to take a picture as she fears that others might also trespass onto her property.

Yuna, of course, immediately responded by spreading the word, urging everyone to be mindful of the business owners while visiting the Forevermore locations in Perlis.

As cool as it is to get pictures of these locations for the ‘gram, it is definitely uncool to trespass onto others’ private property and disrupt their peace.

Let’s be responsible visitors, people!

10 Raya Advertisements That Will Put You On An Emotional Raya-coaster

Ramadan is coming to its end and Raya is now just around the corner. In Malaysia, that means it’s time for the festive period ads! We have watched all of them (for reals!) and have shortlisted the best of the best for you. Some of them will pull on your heartstrings, others will have you bursting with laughter. But, we assure you, all of them will make you excited for raya.

1. Tenaga Nasional Berhad

This one perfectly represents how chaotic raya can get when you have a big extended family, but that’s the best type of raya, isn’t it?

2. Malaysia Airlines

Sejuknya hati tengok this video. It’s a sweet reminder that no matter how far away from home you go, or for how long you’re away, family will always be there to welcome you back like nothing has changed.

3. RHB Group

Last year, the story of a Malay school teacher who did her very best to connect with and help a shy Chinese student went viral on Twitter. Meet Cikgu Orked, and her student Yip Kah Shzen. Their story teaches us that putting aside our differences and celebrating things we have in common is what brings us closer together. And isn’t that what Hari Raya is all about?

4. MR. DIY

An ode to a Malaysian classic, P. Ramlee’s ‘Labu Labi’, this advertisement tells the tale of a stingy Haji Bakhul who wants to organize a special open house for his VVVVIP guests, and teaches you that it isn’t how much you spend during Hari Raya that’s important, but instead, the intention behind your actions.

5. Lazada

At first, it seems like Lazada is encouraging people to embrace the culture of spending money during the Raya festivities in this comical short film that includes an aunty rapping like Cardi B. But then, they surprise you with a beautiful message.

6. Samsung

Inspired by a true story, this video takes us on a little walk down memory lane. Do you remember what raya was like when you were a kid? And isn’t it sad how as we get older, we tend to spend less and less time with our grandparents? However, even if our grandparents may have left us now, the lessons they taught us still live on within us.

7. Petronas

Petronas is out here making people cry again this year. Their raya advertisement will also make you miss your mum a whole lot.

8. Tune Talk

Local actresses and sisters Sharifah Shahirah and Sharifah Sakinah are hilarious in this fourth wall breaking short story that teaches us that the recipe for a perfect raya just needs a dash of affection and a spoonful of harmony, and a whole lotta love.

9. PLUS

Sure, people aren’t perfect. And family can sometimes hurt us. But no matter what, they will always want the best for you. An added message to this video is that even if we aren’t related by blood, that doesn’t mean we aren’t one family.

10. Watsons

Watsons’ Raya video kept us highly entertained with their comedic dance moves, LOL-exchanges, and of course, the sweet Hari Raya message after.

We hope you have your duit raya, baju raya and raya food ready for the big day! Eid Mubarak to all those celebrating!

Due to wanting to spoil Avengers: Endgame for others so bad, eight Malaysians kena halau out of the cinema hall after they were caught recording scenes of the film by officers from the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP).

Padan muka, terus tak dapat tengok the film sampai habis.

According to a report by Astro Awani who spoke to KPDNHEP Chief Enforcement Officer Azeem Nazuri, 10 officers were dispatched to monitor 21 cinema halls from 7pm to 12am yesterday in an effort to clamp down on piracy. The officers reminded viewers in the hall before the start of each film about the repercussions of recording films in movie theatres.

“The operation was carried out with the cooperation of the film industry to educate and remind the public to avoid making any unauthorized recordings or streamings on social media.

The public need to understand that copyright laws need to be respected and protected.”

Clearly, the eight offenders took no heed on the warnings and based on the report, all eight culprits were found to have recorded and photographed scenes from the film using their smartphones.

Luckily for them, the officers let them off with just a warning after instructing them to erase all recordings and photos on their phones before they were released.

However, future offenders may not be as lucky cause according to the act, those found guilty could be fined up to RM100,000 and/or face up to 5 years jail time.

The authorities will reportedly be conducting more checks periodically at cinemas in popular shopping malls nationwide.

If you see anyone illegally recording at cinemas, you can tip off the ministry by calling their hotline at 1800-88-6800. Or, if you shy shy, you can WhatsApp the ministry too, at 019-2794317. Dah maju dah, ada WhatsApp!

Marvel Fan Rushed To Hospital After Watching Avengers: Endgame

A 21-year-old university student in Zhejiang, China was rushed to the hospital after watching Avengers: Endgame on Wednesday (24 Apr).

According to sn.people, the student and her friends went for the first screening of the film at the cinema together. After watching a particularly heartbreaking scene (no spoilers, though!), she starting crying and couldn’t stop.

After exiting the cinema hall at the end of the movie, the woman started having chest pains and struggled to breathe. Her limbs started feeling numb and she experienced muscle spasms, including having her fists tightly clenched.

When her friends noticed her strange condition, they called an ambulance and rushed her to the hospital. The doctor who treated her said that after listening to her friend’s explanation of events, they figured she was probably hyperventilating.

“I saw her gasping for air, and based on her friends’ description, we figured she must’ve cried too much which resulted in hyperventilation. We then immediately put on an oxygen mask for her and tried to calm her down so her symptoms would go away.”

Image via sn.people

According to Healthline and Medlineplus, hyperventilation is a condition where you start to breathe very fast which causes you to exhale more than you inhale. It can arise from emotional causes such as during a panic attack, or it can be due to a medical problem.

After treatment, the student was allowed to return home the same day.

Woah! The plot-twists must’ve really affected her, huh? If you’ve already watched the film and have a good idea which scene might’ve caused her hyperventilation, don’t post any spoilers in the comments ok!

Local actress Diana Danielle has posted on her social media platforms explaining her side of the story over her tax owed to the Inland Revenue Board (IRB).

Harian Metro reported that the wife of local actor Datuk Farid Kamil said that the IRB have been unreasonable with their claims which have resulted in a travel ban and that she said she dah malas nak layan them now.

“I have been patient enough and compromising with them, but their methods are very pushy. I won’t entertain this further,”

Several reports circulated online suggesting that the actress was refusing to sort out RM350,000 of tax she owed to IRB. The reports mentioned that Diana had previously complained about the issue on Instagram on how she was not allowed to leave the county over RM350,000 of tax that IRB claimed she owed them from previous years.

Replying to recent tweets, Diana has been clarifying that she has in fact paid IRB for outstanding taxes when they informed her that she was RM350,000 in arrears. After handing in documents, IRB found that the actual amount owed was only RM30,000

However, the actress said that despite this realization, IRB still barred her from leaving the country.

Diana has also reached out to Malay Mail who reported the story to get their facts on the matter correct.

We hope everything gets cleared out soon, Diana! Till then, keep on being your awesome self, okay!
