    Movies that at the end you're just like "..what the fuck did that just happen?"

    Shit like American History X, fight club, inception, etc...

    I'm far from a movie buff, but I'd say Requiem for a Dream and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    I just watched American History X a couple nights ago, no wonder people always associate curbstomping with that movie, I can't get that close-up shot of that guy's teeth on the curb out of my head.

    ah, idk.. when it comes to mindfuck movies its hard to impress me..

    i thought shutter island was dumb too, smelt that shit coming from opening credits..

    eternal sunshine was dope imo.

    as far as a good dream movie? you should watch a waking life, thats what got me interested in that shit..

    a movie with the same effects is that one that is kinda weird is a scanner darkley, i wouldnt say its a bomb movie, but interesting..

    its hilarious when people try to bash shutter island, the movie practically throws it out there that hes a patient during pretty much every scene, the people who pay attention pick up on it. the movie was good, and youre a hater.

    Inception hasn't mainly gotten mixed reviews and seems like that one "smart" movie that people who don't like good films or aren't that clever are jocking. It's probably good, but it's also probably also like the Dark Knight where if you watch it again and really think about it it starts to fall apart.

    Oh and then there's The Machinist. It's definitely a mindfuck type of movie but I only thought it was alright. Donny Darko too, that was a good one. Has an awesome soundtrack too, Joy Division and Echo & the Bunnymen and shit.

    the issue is, both shutter island and inception were hyped up way too much, im listening to 97% of the population telling me its dope, when i remember i hate most people and there opinions are dumb.

    espiv, dont talk back to me homie, get you slapped like a E40 beat

    Primal Fear - Norton put some good work into this one, working with Richard Gere before he got old and/or started phoning it in.

    The Life of David Gale - Kevin Spacey is certainly one to look up, his general work loaad consists of unique characters and circumstances that surround them.

    Brainscan - Edward Furlong, when he was at the peak I'd say of his youth appeal, pretty solid flick if you keep in mind when it was made.

    that shit is where silent hill got its main influences.

    people may hate it but i liked the prestege for how far both guys go to one up each other's acts.


    lucky number slevin, primal fear, kiss kiss bang bang (still the best robert downey jr movies out there i think),

    american psycho, old boy, donnie darko, fight club, clockwork orange, 12 MONKEYS, MEMENTO, and SEVEN.

    YOOOOOOOO. I left "Shutter Island" being like, "This ending was obvious and dumb; movie too long"

    And then some of the reviews could not stop dick-riding Scorsese.

    Shutter island is pretty nice IMO. the twist every one talks about is not even a twist, its just a part of the movie. Its not like the movie leads up to this big revelation. The "revelation" is just part of the movie.

    The real mind fuck from Shutter island is that...





    SPOILER ALERT!!































































    The viewer isleft to decide whether or not, Leonardo Dicaprios character was

    A) Crazy all along
    or
    B) was sane, but turned Crazy by the staff of shutter island and led to believe that he was crazy "all along"


    Although from reading different opinions the evidence points to Leo being crazy all along.

    Bottom line, the movie is thought provoking.

    The ending didn't make me dislike the movie, the whole movie itself was a little undercooked and heavier on some elements than it needed to be.
