  Movie Plot Twists: An Analysis
While movie audiences are filling theaters and movie rentals houses to watch suspense films for the fun-filled about-face turn-around at the end, the method that the filmmakers are using to tickle the audience is based on a short-sighted formula that may not have legs if not done more carefully.
He spends the movie in search of the meaning of life, and as aliens land on Earth to threaten our very existence, his true faith is put to the test.
That's fun, but the movie implies, if not only by screen time, that the "main character" is one of the personalities of the film that seems to care more about solving the mystery than the other characters do.

 "Cry Wolf" (2005) / a review and/or comments from Christian Spotlight on the Movies
This movie twists and turns and keeps you thinking backwards to what you are sure just happened, but really didn’t.
On of the saddest things about the movie was that the “friends” in the liars group did not seem to have any real feelings for each other or anyone at all.
Morally, it was deplorable, and the elegant twisted plot was not worth all the filthy language and graphic violence.

It was a boring movie where the main character was a woman who murdered her husband.
The plot is based off from the game, so there is no mystery who is going to win, and how it is all going to shake out.
Plot was a little thin, but who needs a plot when you have Aliens and Predators in the same show.

 Film Prophet's Top 150 U.S. Movies
This website is designed to show movie lovers of the new generation that there were movies in the twenty-first century and were also movies out before 1980 and which most are better than today's films.

These movies are not "old, crappy boring movies" as a person once told me. These are wonderful, fantastic, astonishing, tremendous, and marvelous movies people today don't take time out to watch them because they are not up to date.

 Orbital Reviews: Frailty (2001)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The first plot twist of the film is pretty obvious because the plot could not have ended without at least the one twist.
While plot twists are a great device to change the viewers' impression of a film, a surprising twist at the end is not always beneficial to a movie's quality.
Frailty is just a pointless movie with a disturbing final message that does not serve to add value to the plot or make it even remotely intelligent.

Although I’ve included mostly movies I like, bear in mind that the main criterion used to select what went on the list was relevance to one or more of the topics you have to choose from for your 112 research paper.
Near the beginning of the movie, he loses the only woman he’s ever loved because he’s afraid to tell her where he lives, what he does for a living, who he lives with, or even when he can see her and when he can’t.
What impressed me about the movie was that no matter how steeped she is in violence, Wuornos maintains a desire to do good and be a good person—even when this seems absurd given what she’s done.

 Plastic: SPOILER ALERT: From Spoiler Territory Comes The Good And Bad Twists
The worst twist of all time is in The Life of David Gale, where it's revealed that the murder was a set-up just to get the character on Death Row to be sent to the Death Penalty as a martyr.
Generally, it seems a bad twist is one that comes from nowhere and adds nothing, obscures all that came before it, or sours the movie.
The irony is that in the movie Kane wouldn't have longed for his lost childhood toy had he not met his second wife.

They don't have to be end twists, but ones that just struck halfway, or at the end of the movie.
The Sixth Sense - I knew what the twist was before watching the movie, and I was still totally shocked when it unfolded.
And I don't know if this actually counts as a twist, but in Blue Velvet when we find out that who you're led to believe was the villain is actually a victim, and the actual villain is a plain ol' crazypants.

 The SPOILER ridden 'M. Night movies' plot chasms thread! - Circle Theater Forum - GardenWeb
LOL But the movie's focus was not so much about an alien invasion, and it's details, but on Graham's dilemma of faith or coincidence, so Night didn't go to great lengths to be creative or accurate about Aliens.
As to the "plot hole," I think a lot of the detractors forget that the aliens in the movie are not looking to *occupy* earth, they're just on a "collection" mission...ie collecting humans.
Since my wife, son and I saw this movie together some years ago, your last sentence places all of us in the same category that you are falsely assuming that I placed you and others who saw the film.

 TIME: Best and Worst of Cinema in 2002
The French continued to make movies during German's World War II occupation and Bertrand Tavernier's epic reconstruction of how they managed is a loving, lengthy tribute to the goofiness and gallantry of show folks soldiering on in impossible conditions.
If ever a movie demanded to be seen twice, this is it: a tour of the Hermitage Museum, for 150 years the Winter Palace of the czars.
The movie twins nicely with another fine Noyce effort, Rabbit-Proof Fence, a true story, set in the 1930s, about Aboriginal girls stolen from their families by the Australian government so they can be raised and "civilized" by whites.

Like all movie monsters, it has perfect timing and always bursts into the frame just when the characters are least expecting it.

Batman Begins (2005) The strongest of the Batman movies with well-rounded characters and a welcome return to the dark atmosphere and disturbing subtext of the original Batman.
I, Robot (2004) A high-quality genre movie with smart plotting and beautiful visualization; a perfect tribute to Asimov, sharing both his strengths and weaknesses.
Basic Instinct (1992) Arbitrary plotting and implausible characters aside, there is still a decently (forgive the pun) entertaining thriller to be found here.

 MacGuffin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or Maguffin) is a plot device that motivates the characters and advances the story, but has little other relevance to the story.
One particularly famous early movie example of a MacGuffin is the titular statuette in The Maltese Falcon (1941).
The wristwatch left to Butch by his late father is another: it is the retrieval of the briefcase and the wristwatch that drives the plot, but neither item impinges on the plotline at all in any other way than that they are objects of desire and pursuit for the cast of characters.

 Movie reviews by ForgivenForSure
This movie actually suprised me because although it has the word "Happyness" in the title, it really isn't that happy.
The first part of the movie was SOOO slow, and then later it's too action packed.
Another movie that I preferred more that this that has somewhat of the same plot would be Frequency.

 Oh, I Love That Movie | MetaFilter
Darn, I was hoping for a list of 100 movies that I had never heard of, and I think Sonatine (which does sound interesting) is the only one.
I was excited when I saw the post, but the actual list severely disapponted me. Lot of good movies there, don't get me wrong, but most of them aren't by any stretch of the imagination "overlooked," and the problem is that they push out other movies that deserve the attention.
But I guess people don't really want to see lists of things they haven't heard of, they just want to nod at lists of movies they and their friends have seen that didn't make a bajillion dollars.

Crap movie, plot holes, no development of characters, bad bad songs (which are long drawn out), gadgets not very good, the 'lovable idiot' in film was too idiotic to watch without wanting to slit wrists (his), stupid storyline, waste of money and time.

The depravity in the first part of this movie, and the extreme violence of the second part (during the robbery), earn this movie a spot on this list.
A great movie that looks at the Eastern Front from the German perspective - so you know the ending of this movie won’t be pretty.
