Why does evil never prevail in them? Do happy endings give people satisfaction even when they're highly improbable? Shouldn't there be a balance as to how films usually end? It feels like 90% of the stuff I watch nowadays has to have an extremely "positive" climax and it's monotonous for me.
people dont want to be reminded of this when watching movies
While I don't know if you'd count it as "Evil" winning, plenty of movies have not happy endings... whether it's the girl and guy not getting together or people dying or what have you.
I'd say watch more movies.
No good movie (story) has a discernable good vs evil, its just too cliche'.
So that could be your answer.
I have returned
The term you're looking for is the "hollywood ending", but when I looked it up on wikipedia all I got was the movie of the same name

"When I see your face, I wanna be in the human race. You're beautiful it's true, I want to be beautiful like you."
I dunno man, like 40% of the movies in my DVD collection have "unhappy" endings in one way or another.
But if youre truly into the whole "good vs evil" taken to a whole new level, then go watch Ichi the Killer.

Incoming psychology nerdgasm.
Because "happy" endings are psychologically satisfying to the vast majority of people, whether or not they even realize it. Movies are predominately produced with the intent to make money. Thus being the case, they want what will appeal to the largest number of potential viewers. There are also some movies/playwrights that have no clear "good or bad" premise, like Pulp Fiction or Fight Club just to give a few examples, and that is what makes them such good stories. But to your average directly-to-flim movies, it's all about the dollah dollah bill.
That is some high end stuff.
People like happy stuff?
You just blew my mind.
And you seriously need to contact the media with your expose on how capitalists like money, the population need to know such information.
High end stuff. For someone with a 17% smaller brain, naturally.
