Quote of the day:
What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.
I recall watching 'The Passion Of The Christ',and getting teary eyed. Directed by Mel Gibson and starring James Patrick Caviezel (he was struck by lightening during filming), it was one haunting movie i tell ya. Apart from it being so explicitly violent, it was just the kind of movie that you'd watch and not be yourself for a whole week....
Other movies that came this close to opening the flood gates include;
'Titanic' (Leonardo Di Caprio) -when Jack died.
'Gladiator' (Russel Crowe)-Toward the ending (and the haunting soundtrack didn't help matters),when Crowe's character 'General Maximus' was killed (Crowe's performance was totally awesome)
'Hotel Rwanda' (Don Cheadle) -Set during the Rwandan genocide of 1994, Cheadle's character 'Paul', helped to save a lot of fleeing refugees-granting them shelter inside his hotel.
Other movies include Ghost, Sixth Sense, Braveheart, Shawshank Redemption,and a host of others.
My Best Movie Twists
I enjoy twists in movies. I mean what's a good movie without a twist eh?
Might explain why i have a thing for horror flicks...
The unexpected twist at the end caught me unawares when i first watched it. Bruce Willis' character was actually dead the whole time? Jeez!
The Usual Suspects
Watched this movie again over the weekend, and i had to clap at the end of it. The final scene was where the twist was...so the character 'Verbal Kint' was actually Keyzer Soze??-no freaking way!!!!
For me, Saw was simply incredible....and the plot was crazy!
Imagine waking up in a bathtub full of water, at one end of a grimy and disused bathroom. At the other end is another man -both of you chained by the ankle to the plumbing pipes. A corpse holding a revolver and a microcassette recorder lies on the floor between you...
Each of you discover tapes in your pockets labeled "Play Me".
From these tapes, Mr A. is told that he must escape the bathroom, while Mr.B is told that he must kill Mr. A before six o'clock, or else his wife and daughter will be killed and he will be left to die where he sits. They find hacksaws, though neither is sharp enough to cut through the chains. Mr. A breaks his and throws it away in frustration. Mr. B realizes that the saws are not meant for the chains, but instead for their feet.....
The twist was too wicked,haha.... i mean how could that corpse(Jigsaw) not be dead the whole time??
What are your best movie endings?
