Join me in welcoming another guest topic for this week’s Monday Movie Meme, from Tina at Life is Good. The theme is: Movies with HUGE twists at the end.
Share on your blog, or in the comments section, movies that have major plot twists at the end. Remember to visit the blogs of fellow Monday Movie Meme participants. Also, if your response is written on your own blog, make sure to link back to this blog post. Here are my selections for this week’s Movies with HUGE twists at the end theme.
It’s sad when friendships get turned upside down over misunderstandings at a time when people in one small community no longer know who to trust -- or what to believe.
Night Catches Us
Loyalty has many meanings in this film about a former black panther who returns to his old neighborhood, only to learn that he is not welcome there. Murder, corruption, rumors, betrayal and forbidden love emerge during this dramatic tale of a struggle to separate fact from fiction while trying to protect the assumed innocence of one individual who could change it all.
The Family That Preys
Social status and money is the only thing that separates two families, tied together by love and business. As a wealthy construction company executive moves to take over his mother’s leading position at their firm, against her will, professional and personal relationships go up in flames -- right before the big surprise at a very heated board meeting that changes the course of the near future for several people.
As a result, the people in the ending scenes are in a very different position than where they started at the beginning of the movie (which opens with a wedding). Even the huge and deadly bombshell thrown in midway through the film doesn’t prepare you for the way the tides turn later.
Honorable Mention: I considered adding “Shutter Island” to this list but it didn’t make top billing for this week’s meme since the film is previously listed, during the week of Confusing Movie Plots, along with some other obvious choices.
