  2. The Mist. Anyone who has read the short story was expecting the ending that Stephen King gave us. What we got was a clusterfuck of heartache and disappointment.....

    10 Cloverfield Lane.....I didn't see that coming at all.

    The Number 23
    Psycho
    Donnie Darko
    Audition
    Hot Fuzz
    House at the End of the Street

  6. Oh gosh, that one gave me nightmares.
     
  7. I love The Book of Eli, that twist had me shocked the first time I saw it. The ending of Se7en wasn't as shocking to me as the incident when ahem a certain person started coughing. Not sure how else to put that without spoiling it so I'll leave it at that.

  9. I would prefer that movies surprise me. But unfortunately most of the times it has so far it was due to silly reasons.

    For example Civil War and Book of Eli
    Civil War

    Ok, the ending itself wasn't a surprise. It was a surprise from seeing how the final fight went, and then seeing what happened afterwards.

    It really looked like he killed Iron Man. But then in the next scene he's not only 100% fine, but completely cool with Cap? Really?
    You just add a "Oh shit I just broke the thing keeping Tony Alive!" twist and then immediately drop it.

    Book of Eli

    I'm fine with it being a religious movie, and I actually enjoyed the aspect of the Bible being weaponized.

    But the "Surprise it's Braille!" bit and him remembering the whole damn thing word for word? That was a cop-out.


    I liked the Worlds End though.

    Spoiler


     
  10. Yes. Some of my favourites would be:

    Memento.
    12 Monkeys.
    Shutter Island.
    The Drop.
    Fight Club.
    There's movies that have predictable plots, but does everything else right, or have very compelling characters. I don't think a story should aim to surprise just because, especially not if that diminishes another part of it.

  11. A clusterfuck that King himself liked more then his own.

  12. I hope everyone saw The Book of Eli.
     
  13. Doesn't mean it wasn't heartbreaking and disappointing. :P
     
  14. The Others.
    The Sixth Sense.
    Identity

    These are three of my favorites. The only bad thing about the movies with super surprise endings is that you can't really enjoy them as much after the first time.

  16. I love it when movies actually surprise me. I end up predicting the twist of a lot movies well before the reveal and it kills some of the entertainment factor, so the ones that actually get me are great.

    A few of my favorites that actually surprised me first time around are Saw, The Usual Suspects, and Memento.

    One that totally fell flat for me because I predicted the twist was The Sixth Sense.

    Oh, and for the sake of completeness, one I loved despite predicting the ending was Se7en.
    Sometimes. Predictable action and comedy films can still be great if you're just looking for something fun to kill time rather than a fulfilling cinematic experience.

    The thing is, the arc reactor actually doesn't keep Tony alive anymore. He's perfectly functional as a human being, now; at the end of Iron Man 3, he actually has the bit of shrapnel lodged in his chest removed through surgery and thus no longer needs the reactor as life support, prompting him to discard it. He now only ever uses one to power his suits, and that's it.

    As for him being completely cool with Cap after the battle? Yeah, it may be a bit of a cop-out for the sake of making a unification between all members of the Avengers more easy; but then again, it could be argued that he was just really pissed off upon finding out he had kept the fact that Bucky had murdered his parents from him and ultimately didn't want to seriously hurt him otherwise. Cap wasn't even Tony's main target, as well; most of the time, he was very aggressively chasing after Bucky until Steve became too much of a nuisance for Tony to focus solely on the former.
     
  19. Perfect Sisters completely wrecked me. I couldn't finish the movie in one sitting o_o

    Detachment was simply amazing, I love Adrien Broody.

    How I Live Now was a movie I watched after getting a bunch of 'em randomly online... and man I was not expecting any of that. It's a movie everyone should watch.
     
  20. that one supposed to be a fantasy movie about a bridge, that existed only to break my heart.
