Least predictable endings

Post by Dork Lard »

NO SPOILERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *GRINDCORE SCREAM*

I mean...
please, don't give away any spoilers.

List movies that positively mindfuc...uhm, that abused of your psyche, notably with very unusual, original endings.
There are many, and we wanna list em all but...please be patient. (...and I'll be doctor). One at a time. :thumbup:

Jacob's Ladder.

how can you make this thread and say no spoilers. You have spoiled the ending of Jacob's ladder, somebody who has not seen that film will watch it knowing there is going to be a twist now.

Literally the entire movie you spend wondering what happened to the protagonist, he keeps asking himself.
Masterpiece. Y'all who haven't seen it watch it now :nod:

Apparently the movie "the Sixth Sense" has an insaaaaaaaaaaaane twist at the end.
***SPOILER***
It turns out Bruce Willis isn't American at all, and he's accused of being an illegal immigrant and he's sent into a small cage that's barely bigger than his body and shipped to amazon and then sold into slavery in Guatemala.

Planet of the Apes.
**SPOILER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!**

Protagonist escapes, into some desert, only to be revealed and find, lying half buried in the sand, the statue of liberty.
Turns out those asshole apes played a trick on him and put a fake statue there, just to fk with him good and are seen rolling on the floor laughing some miles away with binoculars.

The Usual Suspects.

Kaiser Sozay does all these bad things. They dont catch him but the Kevin Spacey character manages to cure his gummy leg right at the end.

Basic was pretty good.
Lucky Number Slevin has a few twists and a cracking closing line.
As stated above Usual Suspects is a classic
Oblivion is kinda obvious and then turns out to be not obvious at all.

I reckon you watch the deleted scenes on YT, one in particular is absolutely poetically moving. There's like 4...

Guys. We live in a world of 5-second attention spans, clickbait, information+media fed intro-venously, no time for time, no time for nothin...oh my god, I ...I can...I can't BREATHE !!!!
...but yeh, just sayin: we live in a rushed man's world. If you want to spend 20 quality minutes just now watching the father of all mindfk movies, please watch this. It's beautifully directed, thought-provoking, and you'll have earned a very, very strong (and often obscure, sadly) bit of cinematic knowledge. Not that I'm all-knowing of course, I'm just the messenger...but don't say Sparta and kick me into a hole either.

The Fog

Brazil. Not that any of the rest of it was, either.

Ditto the inifinitely creepier interpretation of Total Recall's blue sky on Mars.

Lock Stock, which apparently did have one originally.

Chinatown.

Picnic at Hanging Rock.
