I am re-watching the Matrix. When it came out in 1999, there were some reviews that I didn't watch. I saw it a few years later, and because I had no clue, when I did watch it, it FLOORED me. Total surprise.

Similar to the 6th sense. Blew me away, again.

What other movies have done that?


Please no spoilers:-)

Fight Club was great because the twist wasn't just a gimmick, it was the soul of the story. It was foreshadowed without revealing and was revealed for maximum impact.

And while many might have seen it, and it's easy to spot once you know to look for it, I went in blind opening weekend and was so caught up with the surface narrative that the twist just sent the story into hyperdrive.

It wasn't so much a 'holy shit, what happened' moment as it was a 'holy shit, I thought I was enjoying this, when I was just sleepwalking through it' moment.

Me, in the theater, already enjoying myself thoroughly.

From Dusk Til Dawn in a way. Total change-up like halfway through the movie.

Overlord: starts as a thrilling dday landing for a platoon of paratroopers and turns into an awesome schlocky, body horror nazi kill fest.

This was a cool movie, I went in with zero expectation and left entertained.

Dusk til Dawn is a very good movie until it changes.

:-), right after that is when the movie crashes into a cliff, Baby Lee.

You made it to the true ending.

On a more, . . . scholarly? Serious? Note. I think this movie is the flashpoint where I came to subtly downgrade Robert Rodriguez movies and subtly upgrade Tarantino movies.

I mean, I already loved Tarantino, and I really really enjoyed Desperado, but this one created an unfounded notion in me that, when a movie goes to schlocky shit, that's Rodriguez unleashing his id, and when schlocky shit turns into gold, that's Tarantino rescuing it. Not fair, but it's stuck with me for a while.

Maybe itís because I was so young and the content being about dinosaurs that my perception is skewed, but when Jurassic Park came out it seemed like the first movie to expertly integrate robots, computer animation, and people so flawlessly that it seemed like something from the future. Maybe not the exact point of the thread though.

Toy Story I think fits the idea though. Donít think anyone had any idea what was coming with that one.
