5 Movies That Will Blow Your Mind
Prepare for Brain Pain
The last 10 years, in my opinion, haven't been the best when it comes to movie production. Everything is completely centered around special effects and putting on a good show, that no one really makes a plot that is worth following and leaves you wanting more. I can't remember the last time i watched a movie and said to myself "I am going to buy this on DVD". I understand that no one really buys DVDs anymore because of the Netflix and the Redbox, but I still believe that everyone should have a movie collection. If you don't, that is just sad.
5 Movies That Hurt My Brain
1. Fight Club
Fight Club is an instant classic. The first part I love about Fight Club is that, despite the title, it really isn't all that much about fighting. Most of these fake UFC guys are probably fans of Fight Club but have never actually seen it. I mean, what else do you want in a movie besides split personalities, drug addicts, men with boobs? and a twisted storyline? This movie is definitely on my top 5 list. If you were reading this and didn't know that Edward Nortan and Brad Pitt are the same guy in the movie, then I guess I have successfully blown your mind. It is true, Brad Pitt is supposed to symbolize the split personality of Tyler Durden. The cool part about this movie is that they never really let you know this, you kind of have to figure it out on your own. Another interesting part of this film is that it is a thriller, but at the same time a comedy. If you didn't think this movie was a little humorous then you have no soul.
2. Shutter Island
Shutter Island is one of the few good movies that is based on a book. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't even compare to the book but they still did a good job. Shutter Island has many great elements to it that will blow your mind. First thing is that all the characters in the movie are sort of creepy in a sense that you know that they are all up to something. As the story unfolds you start to put pieces together and think that you are on the right track, but you aren't. Nice try though. In the end you still won't have idea what is going on. A lot of people take the movie for face value and so "Oh, he is crazy" and just leave it at that. Take in consideration that he had never met his partner that he came to the island with and that his purpose there was to take the place down for experimenting on peoples minds. So is he really crazy? Wrap your head around that one.
Inception. Oh what a glorious movie. Do I really have to even explain why this movie will blow your mind? They go into peoples dreams and extract information! How much crazier can you get. The funny part about this movie is that I totally thought of it first. I am dead serious. Not really but you get the point. The cool part about this movie is that they take quantum mechanics and dream theory to a level where a person with a high school education can understand. I have met plenty of people that have watched it twice and still don't get it. Go back to high school I say. Like Shutter Island, the ending keeps you guessing, wanting you to know more. Has he been dreaming since he first tried the sedative they used for inception? Or maybe he never escaped Limbo. I guess it is up for you to decide. I doubt they will ever make a sequel. If they do I won't watch it. Some things are just better left alone.
Seven is arguably the best thriller murder-mystery ever made. It is classy, action packed and mind boggling. What a great combination of Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. Pitt is extremely edgy and makes mistakes easily. Freeman is calm cool and collective and the combination of the two characters makes the movie great. The main part of the movie that will blow your mind is the ending. What a masterpiece of a plot! If anyone saw the ending coming, please comment and verify your IQ level. The whole movie is kind of gross too in its own aspect. If offers a version of gore and horror that you really haven't seen. Its so realistic. If you are queasy, don't watch this movie. I mean think of the worst cases of the 7 deadly sins you have ever seen thrown into one movie with a bunch of close ups and angles. That is Seven.
Memento isn't as mind blowing as the previous 4 titles I mentioned. However, it is still a great concept to get your mind going. The ending is pretty unpredictable as well. This film isn't directed by Quinten Tarantino but if you aren't a fan of his movies, you probably won't like this film. The whole movie is completely backwards. It play part the movie until it leaves you with something you don't understand, then it time travels and explains in in a different clip until you that leaves you with something you don't understand and then it time travels again. If you do this enough times it is kind of like a roller coaster. It leaves you dizzy and confused by the end. Possibly throwing up. In the end, Memento is a film that fans of the 4 titles above should check out. By the way, do you remember Sammy Jankis?
