Top "No Way!" Twists of all time

Recommended Posts

Wouldnt it be great if Nolan used the elements in Memento in Batman Begins?

Bruce Wayne spends his life hunting criminals to avenge his parents and also looked for their killers but turns out the killer is young Bruce Wayne. Very Moebius.

None of these movies will ever beat the last two minutes of usual suspects for holy shitness. Kevin Spacey rocks my socks.

Actually the editing was excellent. Each scene is self contained. It started off with an unknown incident ie someone shooting at Pierce. It ends with Pierce running into his room and hiding. It then ends and restarts with an earlier scene in time which shows why he is being shot at. It continues all the way like this to the end which is the beginning.

You can possibly re-edit it to make it flow normally from beginning to end.

On the special ed. DVD (at least here in the UK) there was a feature that you had to access by doing some sort of cheat on the menu that played the film in chronological order. I lived with film students at uni and they used to find out all this stuff.;)

They studied this in film school? Do they study Troy or Snakes on a Plane as well?

We 'studied' medal of honor and GTA too.

What flicks are those? Are they of the same calibre as Navy Seals and Arnold's Commando?

I more like to think of them as the game world's answer to Paris,Texas and Brazil.

Requiem for a Dream was a shocking/brilliant/deranging masterpiece that left me seriously speachless. The end was particularly unexpected cause nothing went right!

The Departed. My mouth was seriously on the ground during the final 5 minutes.

The ending reminded me of Goodfellows near the end where all the main characters got their denouement. But if not done correctly, it would appear like an over indulgent director who spent too much time doing shit, realised he got to wrap up the film and decide to kill off everyone in the last 5 minutes.

at the very end just before the credits roll, a big rat crawls out onto the railing of the balcony. not clever.

Maybe in the director's cut DVD Sofia Coppola will elaborate?

i myself just enjoyed the vengeance of the parents...oddly funny (DARKLY funny) scene.

I thought I was the only one that thought that ....It was unintentional im sure but hilarity did ensue. Old boy...definately..the last of the trilogy kind of sucked though.

What was the twist in pans labyrinth though..did i miss something?

The insane and endless twists at the end of ' The Prestige ' were fantastic.

Loved it.

ugggh am i the only one who thought the prestige was stupid? i swore to myself that if one of those guys came onstage in their shitty fucking disguises one more time i would punch the plot of the movie. it was like watching bugs bunny and elmur fudd for crying out loud.

It's a pretty good mind fuck. Tells you how precarious your memories are. Pierce couldn't trust anyone, including himself.
