READ DESCRIPTION

Shyamalanin Village olisi hyvä listalle listä mikäli elokuva on tuttu.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Sep 2 21:05
The Sixth Sense always reminds me the First 50 Dates :)
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Nov 29 17:08
This list...

...

...is what I call a good list!
My favorites from this one were Se7en and Vertigo.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Nov 29 18:34
I like this list. I would like to know what the shocking endings are and yet if you don't describe them it doesn't give anything away. The Departed and The Prestige were the most predictable ones. You should see Fat Girl (2001), it's available on Criterion DVD.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Nov 29 19:08
Good list, some movies I don't recall what the twist was, (i.e. Full Metal Jacket), but one notible absence on this list is the first saw, that had one of the best twists for a movie, and none of the sequels have yet to top it.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Nov 29 23:59
see the game...
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Dec 4 16:25
i think the usual suspects should be at or near the top of this list. maybe you haven't seen it yet. well worth it...
Posted: 3 years ago at Apr 5 2:50
Explain the Bourne Ultimatum's twist to me in a PM please. Other than that, this list is great.
Posted: 3 years ago at Apr 5 11:45
Check out Identity and The Lady in the Water. Great list!
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 4 8:49
You know, I almost voted on your list until I saw The Village there. O_O Yes it does have a twist ending but IMO it is nowhere near "great".

But I like the fact that you put Mulholland Drive there. That's probably one of my most favorite movies from my favorite director, David Lynch.

As a suggestion, have you ever watched Primer? A lot of people hate the movie because it's so confusing and too mind-baffling, but that's the real twist (and fun) of the movie. The movie is so under-appreciated it's so sad. People only prefer blockbuster movies with great looking cast, lots of CGI and simple plot-line that won't challenge their mind...

Speaking of twist ending, have you seen this wikipedia article?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plot_twist

Which is your fave twist ending? I think mine is all of them, as long as it's done/presented in a tasteful manner. =)

The original Planet Of the Apes - one of the best twist endings ever combined with iconic imagery..what more could you want?
Posted: 9 months, 3 weeks ago at Jul 7 12:07
You should add Murder on the Orient Express and The Crying Game to your list.
Posted: 9 months, 3 weeks ago at Jul 7 17:41
After seeing them first, of course.
Posted: 9 months, 1 week ago at Jul 18 8:30
I recommend you watch 'Brick', 'Hard Candy', and 'Gossip'. Kind of impressed to see 'The Sting' and Hitchcock on here. So many people won't watch anything older than a decade, now. Great List!
Posted: 9 months, 1 week ago at Jul 19 3:23
Check out The Usual Suspects if you haven't seen it! Great screenplay and Kevin Spacey is wonderful in it!
Posted: 9 months, 1 week ago at Jul 19 16:24
It's a must see for me, so I shall check it someday. :)
Posted: 8 months, 1 week ago at Aug 20 14:05
I would add the Asian horror movie Bloody Reunion to your list...oh and definitely Oldboy...well Asian horror is a ripe area for twist endings A Tale Of Two Sisters, Spider Forest, Epitaph
