Some people don't like to stretch out of their comfort zone. They don't like to think. Big budget studio releases without a plot, character development, or anything that treads beyond "convenience tv" is a threat to a lot of people, I think. It's a turn off for them, literally and figuratively. Shouldn't be though, which is why I loved the ending. More realistic and appropriate, like really looking into the lives of the characters, without the need to tie a bow on a neatly wrapped package, imperfect at the time of the final cut.
I am glad you mentioned the inclusion of the Journey track. At first, I thought I was analyzing it too much- it distracted me a lot when I viewed it intially. Glad to know I wasn't the only one who noticed it.
