My and my rommate were just talking about how rare it is that a movie has a really good and creative plot twist that you don’t see coming. What are some of your favorite movies that turned the plot around on a dime?
Off the top of my head I’d go with…
The Sixth Sense
If anyone claims they saw these twists coming, they’re lying. One of my pet peeves is when movie snobs can’t swallow their pride and admit that they didn’t see a twist coming. I have a feeling we have one or two of those on this board.
[QUOTE=J Felt;438461]Also gave us some of the funniest scenes in Nic Cage’s career…
“THE BEEEEESSS!!! NOT THE BEES!!!”
and of course, when he dresses as a bear and then punches a girl in the face.[/QUOTE]
That movie suuuuuuuuuuuuucked. Watch the original Wicker Man, the British movie from the 70’s, if you want to see it done right.
The Others was an okay movie, but greatest plot twist of all time? Really? The Usual Suspects was an ehh movie with a pretty good finish. I can understand calling that one of the greatest plot twists of all time.
The single greatest plot twist of all time is easy, Chinatown. If you haven’t ever seen it, you need to see it. That is a plot twist, you won’t see it coming and it will hit you.
Sixth Sense is probably the second best of all time. People can say they saw it coming, but if you had no idea there was a plot twist, then you never saw it coming. It was also a good movie. I can still watch it and enjoy it.
Soylent Green had one of the more interesting plot twists.
Maltese Falcon, “This is the stuff dreams are made of.” Of course, that’s not really that shocking of a plot twist, and it makes total sense.
