This isn’t a joke–I was wasting some time on the Internet and stumbled across this ending–and I have to admit that I like it, but it’s far more didactic than the ending we saw in theaters. The theater ending leaves us guessing a bit, but this ending spells out the “lesson” of the story. I can see why Cameron went with the ending he did, but I like this ending, too.
Then again, sometimes it’s appropriate to leave readers (and movie viewers) free to sort through their own impressions so they can take away their own lessons.
