  • Maybe that mild-mannered dude in the corner was really the big bad guy. Perhaps the hero was dead the whole time. Or maybe everything we've seen is somebody's hallucination. Whatever the reveal, these memorable movie moments caught us off guard and left us talking for years to come. Spoilers ahead. Usually, movies are told in chronological order, but much like its protagonist, Dr. Louise Banks, Arrival isn't confined to a single time. In the movie's opening, we watch Louise lose her beloved daughter to disease. Naturally, we assume this is happening early in her life, well before the renowned linguist is asked by the military to communicate with the heptapods mysterious aliens who've landed on Earth. Her job is to translate their complex language so humans can talk with these otherworldly visitors. As she delves deeper into their circular alphabet, though, the heptapod language changes her perspective of time, allowing her to experience the past, present, and future at once. Before long, we discover that Louise actually hasn't had her child yet. Those flashbacks are actually flash-forwards, visions of what's to come, courtesy of the alien language. Louise now exists outside of time, or more accurately, throughout every moment simultaneously. As a result, her perspective on concepts like love are radically altered by the heptapods' gift. Sure, she now knows that heartbreak is coming, but she heads into the future anyway, because she knows there's a lot of joy waiting there too. It might just be the most emotional twist in all of science fiction, and one that will leave you both thinking and wiping away a few tears.A Beautiful Mind finds an Oscar-nominated Russell Crowe playing John Nash, a real-life Nobel Prize-winning mathematician who lived a rather unusual life. Early in the film, Nash is drafted by Department of Defense Agent William Parcher to analyze magazines and newspapers for hidden Russian codes.

    Clicked just to see Arrival. Besides the plot twist, it's a genuinely brilliant movie and one of my favorites from the 2010's.

  • CJS929  13 days ago

    Yeah, I thought Arrival was a great movie ... and I find some of the criticisms to border on ridiculous. Oh Amy Adams chose selfishly to have a child she knew would die, Oh Adams didn't tell her husband about the child, it wasn't engaging enough for true sci-fi fans, etc. This is what happens when Hollywood really tries to engage the viewer's mind and that's why so many shit movies get made.

    @Special EDy I totally agree with you in your first paragraph. I think arrival was a pretty good film. Not a great one but it definitely kept me engaged and trying to figure out what it was all about. I was happy with the ending overall. I've seen movies and sat through a lot worse. Some movies, like The Last Jedi, I walked out after 15 minutes. That was definitely a waste of my time and money.

    Oldboy (2003) definitely had a crazy twist that made everyone uncomfortable

    DuBstep115 Har. 🙄 Incest is illegal in Alabama but it is legal in New Jersey and Rhode Island. The North is really lacking in self awareness.

  • DedoPorno  1 months ago

    The Vulture is one of the greatest plot twists of all time? The Last Jedi? Are you out of your mind??

  • @just me Aye. But the quality level of all of them was like 'I am your father' told to Luke by Chewie or Jabba. Just because there are many twists doesn't make any of them GOOD twists.

    Anything Disney got there hands to is canon to the franchises they bought...
