    Hey,

    I don't know if this has been done before but anyway...I love a good movie that has an ending that makes you go "Whaaaaaa!??". My personal favs are:

    Switchblade Romance
    Fight Club
    The Usual Suspects
    The Blair Witch Project
    Magnolia

    Obviously, don't give away the ending\twist as I'm sure we'll all use this to see these movies we haven't seen :)

    "The Others" was the best suprise ending that all made perfect sense in rewatching the movie.

    For a great twist I am going to mention From Dusk Till Dawn. I do not think anyone who watched for the first time could have guessed what was going to happen.

    Really? Twist ending? Or do you mean what happens once they get to the bar?

    One of the best twists I've ever seen was the opening of "Escape from the Planet of the apes"... Totally rescued the franchise & gave it full circle.

    The ending to Smokin Aces 2 was not totally expected, but it was good.

    The twist at the Titty Twister. Didn't realise the thread was for endings only. My bad.

    I guess the poster means
    Liam Neeson's character's true identity

    Not sure whether the OP is looking for twist endings or just unexpected endings but some of my favs:

    The Sixth Sense: Ok its a cliche at this stage, but its a bloody good one. Well executed.

    The Mist: Love the ending. Really flies in the face of the whole hollywood ending.

    Se7en: Another surprise ending. The film even moves away from the Film Noir genre to deliver a tour de force ending. A real sense of helplessness is on display as we realise that even though arrested, John Doe is still in control

    The Skeleton Key (2005 - Kate Hudson)

    I don't even want to hint at a spoiler for it.

    Liam Neeson was Raj Al Gool (pardon the spelling) all along, I had forgotten bout him at that stage

    From Dusk till Dawn
    Primal Fear
    The Village
    American Beauty

    They are just a few off top of my head

    Well unlike most movies the bad guy kills the hero, possibly his wife and most of the other people on screen and then stroll off into the sunset, there is that feeling that hes gona be caught but instead i feel it leaves you with that wtf? feeling,

    The End of the Affair has an excellent ending with a twist.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,300 cabrwab


    Always loved the ending of Lock stock
    the finding how much the guns were worth
    . Just for the oh sh*t no way moment!;)

    Love the ending of Seven, its subtle (apperently), so subtle my sister didn't realise the seven deadly sins were complete!

    The end of the mist was great too.

    The ending of the sixth sense and arlington road had me thinking about the movies for a couple of days after.

    If we're talking twists, the ending of The Prestige made me want to watch the entire film again straight away.
