With Inception out, I've been on kind of a mind bender kick. Some of Nolan's older movies (like Memento and The Prestige), Aronofsky's films, even revisiting the first Matrix.
What movies really blow your mind?
The Sixth Sense did, when it first came out. Haven't seen a movie yet, which got me as good as that one did. I was freaked out for weeks.
Yea...forgot about that movie...it was good! it creeped me out too.
Oh yeah, I was literally freaked out! It was crazy. Good movie though, actually I thought is was excellent.
Here's a shocker, I've actually never seen the Sixth Sense. Worth seeing if you know the twist?
Oh man I do not know, because it was the twist that made it so real. I do not know..., however I have seen it more than once. I had to watch it a second time. I had missed a lot, from having my eyes closed the first time.
You know, funny you should ask. My wife and I watched it again last night for the first time in years (I think that was my first re-watching since I saw it in theaters), and it was great. I definitely recommend it even if the "twist" has been ruined.
Both Memento and Prestige were excellent. I have not seen Inception yet,
Man from the earth
Alien vs Predator (1)
The pursuit of happiness
definitely Inception, Matrix, Pi, The Game.. I'll probably think of more.. now I want to see Memento..
Momento was great and I still love " 2001 Space Odyssey ' too.
You remind me I still really need to see the Game. Fincher is certainly a master of the mind bender.
That film scared the sh*t out of me when it came out, remember those scenes when those people seen had their heads looking like they were wrapped in bandages and moving too fast? I had dreams like that when I was a small kid, and those memories came flooding back when I first saw the film @ 20 years old (gulp)
First one to come to mind was "A Clockwork Orange." Weird!!!!
Yes...David Lynch has put out some really off the wall movies...Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction....and The Shining got to me - that was a weird and scary movie...."Redrum"....
Most recent on my list was definitely Shutter Island.
Crash (not the recent one made in 2004, the one made in 1996 directed by David Cronenberg)
Naked Lunch (geez, getting a David Cronenberg vibe here )
Synecdoche for me. I watched when half asleep however. Think it's double edged really, it needs a few rewatches I think, which gives it longevity but also makes it a bit annoying. Can't decide whether it was really clever or a bit too self-indulgent.
The Aussie horror one. Something about a creek.
What's the name of it again?
Set in the outback that maniac tortures those kids.
I had night mares for years I mean weeks after it, omg totally freaky.
How about District 9?
I would think you would be horrified at how the prawns were treated! LOL!
ROFL oh those poor prawns. Yes Logic I saw District 9 and I can tell you yes I was horrified to see a prawn treated like they were.Top movie though especially got exciting when he started turning into a prawn himself. Poor man,can you imagine the trauma he suffered.
I remembered the one I was thinking of....Wolf Creek....have you seen it Logic. The scariest freakiest thing I have ever seen.
ran (symbolism is simply amazing when used masterfully like akira kurasawa does in this movie)
8 1/2 (on the surface of the film it may not seem too complex, but it has a lot of symbolism that will blow your freaking mind)
and probably many others, as these are just the ones at the top of my head at the moment.
because they are not mentioned yet
eternal sunshine of the spotless mind
requiem for a dream (can never watch again)
Old Boy (can also never watch again)
I was equally entertained by "the Others" as Sixth Sense..enjoyed the overall mood a bit more too
oh yeah, i completely forgot about eternal sunshine. how could i have forgotten about that movie, as that's like the best love story of all time. oh man, i can't believe i missed that. d' oh!
Some of the afterlife concepts in “What Dreams May Come”
Another one I just saw: After.Life, with Liam Neeson and Christina Ricci.
Matrix was a genius movie ... I mention also "the Others" as "Sixth Sense"
Most people took mine, so I'll throw in some additional ones:
The Mothman Prophecies
The Time Machine-The newer version (although, I didn't think it was a great movie, the concept was out there)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
...and what about another Jim Carrey movie...Number 23
And last but not least...
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull...just why oh why?
Perfect movies for this.
the Matrix series
Shutter Island ------------------- THIS ONES THE BEST!
Da Vinci Code
Angels and Demons
Book of ELI
when they go to the old couples house... thats a mind bender!!
The Book Of Eli

What are some good "bad movies" and bad "good movies" of the past 10 years?I've been doing a couple hubs about good "bad" movies and bad "good" movies and so on. I've got a few more ideas, but I think it would be more enjoyable to see some new movies...

Let's pretend here for a moment that you could nominate the movies for best picture next year. Assuming they go back to the traditional 5 nomination format, which something tells me they won't but still. Let's assume it's only 5 and then you pick five movies, that were released...
