Also state your reasons here.
I felt happy and sad, mostly because it had to end and also I felt like there was just something missing. I also hope they make another movie or more to the series but it's not likely to happen, and that is a whole new topic itself.

Very sad because it's so hard to say goodbye to something I will remember for the rest of my life. It was good while it lasted. With the movie ending that way, I'm absolutely postive that in the right mind of the creators of the FMA series, there won't be a sequel. Just think of what will happen after the events of the movie...
Ed and Al had to leave everyone else to be together and start a new life. It probably felt more meaningful to them living a brand new life in the other world. Though I'm sure that it's still hard to leave everyone you've ever known.
I remember the last scene as I write this...
Al: So, where are we headed to now brother? Ed: First we have to track down that uranium bomb that was brought over from the other side. A weapon like that shouldn't exist, no matter which world it's in. Al: People are saying another great war is inevitable here. Are you sure we should get invovled in their battles? Ed: Like I said Al, we can't keep thinking we're all that matter and that the world has nothing to do with us. This goes for both sides of the gate. This is where we live. It's home now, and we have to do our part. *Ed looks at Al *Al looks back at Ed with a smile signifying "ok". The song "Lost Heaven" by L`Arc~En~Ciel plays. The tragic-like symphony starts to heighten feelings. *The truck leaves towards the horizon and the Elric brothers turn their heads and face the road beyond and the viewpoint aims at the azure skies for a hint of sentimentality. If you notice the atmosphere is a bit more gloomy in this world. *The viewpoint is now at the Rockbell's house and we see Rose, Pinako, Armstrong playing with the kids. The atmosphere in the world of Amestris is more vibrant if you compare the scenes. *The viewpoint is now in a room with Winry polishing the dog's nails and there's a cork board with pictures *The viewpoint zooms on the cork board and we see pictures of mainly Ed and Al and what may send down a chill down the spine of any FMA fan is the picture of Ed and Al in formal wear. It may signify something. Before the tragedy and after. Memories. It's the last scene in the FMA series and it leaves a lasting impression with mixed feelings, usually sadness and anxiety.
And after the very last scene of the Fullmetal Alchemist series, we start to hear the lyrics of "Lost Heaven" and it's just really, really sad listening to the lyrics while looking at the credits signaling the end of the Fullmetal Alchemist series. I started crying in full bursts as I heard the lyrics. I was in tears during the scene where the truck leaves for the horizon but it was only during the credits wherein I cried really hard.
I can't forget what Fritz Lang said as well. It gives a warm feeling. "Motion pictures, and weapons of war. Science has created them both. So while others point their guns; I'll have my camera, offering fantastic dreams of other worlds, just beyond our reach."
I'm so sorry for the long post but Fullmetal Alchemist is very close to my heart and I have a very strong emotional attachment to the series due to reasons I must disclose. Everytime my senses feel anything related to Fullmetal Alchemist, I feel something I can't explain and my mind becomes very enclosed.
I think the girls here will probably be calling me a sissy or emo right now after reading all that but I don't care.
