|Movies With Unpredictable Endings by toluwalomo(m): 3:30pm On Mar 20, 2009|
We all like to think we can predict how a movie will end.
The bad guy dies, the good guy wins and gets the girl blah, blah, blah, or something like that
But there still some odd movies out there that shock with their unpredictable endings.
Identity A movie by John Cusack and some other ppl. Starts like the usual with we all meet at the motel routine and there is someone stalking us and killing us one by one. Whilst I waited for the killer to be unmasked at the end, I found out that all the motel people were actually characters in the mind of a schizophrenic. And while being transported to an asylum he kills the doctor that saved him from being gassed!
BUG One of the sickest movies I have seen, where someone absolutely insane CONVINCES a sane person to
commit suicide with him to escape the clutches of a weird experiment-BUGS.

Yeah identity is sort of warped too.
The Usual Suspects; i was sure either they were gonna nail Kevin spacey (Keyser Soza) or everyone would walk away free.
The sixth sense: Ok yeah i was slow, i didnt figure it out until the end like most people that he was dead
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by bishoptboy(m): 9:32pm On Mar 21, 2009|
the assassination of Jesse James. the ending blew me away.
yeah sixth sense ending is really good.
the number 23
so many films with unpredictable ending. hey, is there any Nollywood that has got a good plot twist, I mean a Nollywood with unpredictable ending. i'm still trying to find out. who know one? please suggest and i will check it out.
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by iice(f): 3:16am On Mar 23, 2009|
Actually most films are predictable. . .
the hero survives. . .
gets the girl. . .
live happily ever after. . .
good prevails. . .
so on and so forth.
I thought back then that Braveheart was unpredictable, i mean i was expecting him to be saved before getting the axe. But i so loved that he died. . .made more sense that way.

Nollywood movie with an unpredictable ending?
A cold day in hell before that happens.
You can tell a story from watching the movie ad most times
Sixth Sense was crazy one of the best unpredictable endings EVER!
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by spikyn: 2:10pm On Mar 23, 2009|
'Unknown' with Jim Caviezel had a slightly off ending.
'Minority Report' has the most off-the-wall ending in Spielberg's annals.
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by bishoptboy(m): 3:54pm On Mar 23, 2009|
Are you saying that its so hard to find a Nollywood with an unpredictable ending. thats sad. I have watched less that 5% of Nollywood released and have not really found any.
You know the once i watched i can even predict the ending from the opening credit or even soundtrack . the soundtrack tells you the whole movie. you dont even need to watch it again cos you know the film is saying the girl being maltreated by her step mother will soon marry a rich guy from the US. gosh give me a break!
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by toluwalomo(m): 10:04am On Mar 24, 2009|
I must say, i was dissapointed with the ending of Unknown.
People hyped this film and said it was in the league of Unusual Suspects I beg to differ.
Based on the build up, i expected more.
Checked out 23 , jim carey again y/day and I must say it had an impressive twist, he being the one who wrote the book in the end.
But I wonder y his wife gave him the book as a present if she was trying to protect him from remembring stuff in the first place.

~Keyser Soza!! That movie blew my mind away!! Me & My Dada watched it together,I remember saying "No F-ing Way" when it turned out who Keyser Soza really was!! For a sec i dint realise i'd just swore in front of my dada I watched it Again just to be sure i didnt miss nuffin the first time round!!

|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by bishoptboy(m): 9:13pm On Mar 24, 2009|
i just love the twist of event in assasination of jesse james.
no country for old men also has an unexpected end.
how about natural born killer. crazy ending.
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by lynxnoon(m): 9:08am On Mar 25, 2009|
THE USUAL SUSPECTS(the gretest trick the devil has ever pulled is making people believe he doesn't exist,,,,,,,,Kayzer souze )
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by toluwalomo(m): 9:26am On Mar 25, 2009|
So much talk on Jesse James gotta check it out,
No Country for Old Men was a good one, all the smart Bottom guys dying, Woody Harrelson's character was a good laff after his posing see how he was taken out!
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by iice(f): 11:00am On Mar 25, 2009|
Was the ending of Jesse James unpredictable? It's a good movie though but i didn't find it unpredictable.
Deep blue sea
I thought the ending was a bit unpredictable. Never expected the black man (LLCoolJ) to survive. But the best part was when Samuel L. got eaten, now if he lived - that would have been predictable
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by toluwalomo(m): 2:38pm On Mar 25, 2009|
@ iice, "deep blue sea" , real talk!
Speaking of L.L. Cool J, has anyone seen Slow Burn another movie with an unpredictable ending?
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by Mad_Max(f): 2:44pm On Mar 25, 2009|
The Sixth Sense
The Usual Suspects
The Crying Game
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by spikedcylinder: 8:25am On Mar 27, 2009|
Doubt had me gasping for more. Ended so abruptly.
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by bishoptboy(m): 9:05pm On Mar 28, 2009|
Hey, just remembered how Perfume ended. that was a very very crazy one. i learnt the writer of the film is very weird
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by bishoptboy(m): 9:11pm On Mar 28, 2009|
deep blue sea was predictable for me. i know they will keep the cool LL cool J. but i never really expected the girl to die. for me as per jesse james, i never expected the film to have that twist. i thought killing jesse james was the good thing for people but didnt expect them to turn around and later kill his killers cos he (jesse james) was the villain of the film.
for perfume, seeing the villain live was crazy and i thought he was going to be caught when he attempted to kill his last victim.

|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by bishoptboy(m): 1:10pm On Mar 29, 2009|
as per LL cool J iknew he was going to make it. most of the time innocent guys do make it. you see in film guys like cooks, cleaner etc dont die. kids hardly die, if there are more than one innocent lady one will die the other will survive. they always try to keep the innocent.
watch horror film the innocent girl doent get eaten by the monster. the one thats promiscious die. i learnt they use horror to discourage promiscuity in those days.
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by proudly9ja(m): 9:49pm On Mar 29, 2009|
THE OTHERS ----Now that's unpredictable
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by bruced: 4:49am On Mar 19, 2013|
I appreciate this post because I enjoy movies with unpredictable endings. However, I find it ironic that some people ruin the movie for those that have not yet scene it by revealing the ending.
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by Tadon200(m): 9:06am On Apr 01, 2013|
mine is the secret window;johnny depp movie,the assasination of jesse james is a movie you can predict if you get the logic of the movie,another movie that is unpredictable is vertigo;directed by one of the best directors Alfred hitchcock and starring james stewart and also memento,wow that film is da bomb.
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by kay9(m): 9:56pm On Apr 10, 2013|
You guys missed out Shutter Island.
And how about Christopher Nolan's Memento? Apart from having MANY twists, this movie has the craziest plot i've ever seen.
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by ijebabe: 1:30am On Apr 11, 2013|
Thrillers seem to have the highest points for unpredictable endings. In romance, drama and action, we pretty much know how its going to end.
Identity was one bleeped up movie! Didn't even see that coming at all.
Its been a while a movie ending completely shocked me though, let me think...
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by VillageBoi(m): 5:09am On Apr 11, 2013|
Teehee, you no dey watch 'Nollygoof'? Half-way thru and in the middle of a scene it 'shockingly' ends with the message - "Watch Out for Part 8 even though we nefa finito Part 1" lol
|Re: Movies With Unpredictable Endings by sholay2011(m): 8:10am On Apr 11, 2013|
VillageBoi:Lol...I believe 'Figurine' had a quite unpredictable ending. Come on, who sensed that 'Linda' (Funlola Aofiyebi) had dated 'Sola' (Kunle Afolayan) in the past? Who knew the story would later be stuck between believing the figurine or ramsey noah is the cause of havoc and not the usual 'an evil doll-is-causing upheaval-but-we-later-survived story'.

Originalsly: Usual Suspects...Taking of Pelham 123(original) and Crying Game.
Interesting... Just checked it on IMDb; never knew the Travolta/Denzel thriller was a remake. I'm betting the plot twist in the original version would probably be in the identity of the hijackers. No?
