The Watch had some real obvious twists.
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
No jock can just comically toss a full-grown man around like that. That character and Richard Ayoade's characters had to be aliens.

Also the thing with Billy Crudup's character not being an alien. Although I found the whole basement orgy thing to be a funny surprise

I knew Bridges was the bad guy in Iron Man as soon as he was cast and learned who he had been cast as. Of course being an Iron Man fan from way back helped there. Might as well tell me Lex Luthor is going to be the suprise bad guy in a Superman film. Not really a twist, IMO. Although I always wondered how people unfamiliar with Iron Man took it.

I found it to be pretty obvious. "Creatures" that prevent people from leaving the village. What could they be Hiding from them? I always figured it was a bunch of folk who wanted to preserve an old fashioned way of life, away from the temptations of modern society.

Honestly, every possible twist there could be had been guessed online after the premise of the film was released. Something The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs all avoided. Which is why most people hated The Village and it started the fall of Shamalamading-dong. He should have made that the movie he DIDN'T rely on a twist for. That would have been a suprise.

I've watched it twice in the last month and the Village doesn't rely on the twist. Unlike he's previous movies it isn't about the twist it just has one. It was his way of easing off the twist format that obviously failed.

But for me Inception, I knew from the trailer that it would end on whether or not it was all a dream.

Psycho. It's still a phenomenal movie, but it's not hard to tell that "Mother" is a man in a dress and wig, even though you don't see Perkins' face.

However, I managed to avoid knowing Marion gets killed a little under an hour into the movie, so that twist was a pretty big surprise.

They did sort of allude to that. My girlfriend at the time guessed very early on. I thought it might be too obvious for them to use. I really liked the film though.



Predators - I knew something would be off about Topher Grace's character.

Orphan.

I seriously figured out the twist from watching the trailer.

Max Van Sydow being the bad guy in Rush Hour 3 only because I just happened to watch Minority Report prior to it.

Christopher Plummer being the villain in Star Trek VI. I'm not really sure if this was intended to be a plot twist or not, but it might have been since it takes the heroes most of the movie to figure out that he's a key cog in the conspiracy. I mean, as soon as you saw what he looked like, you said to yourself, "Okay, he's the bad guy."

Not sure if this counts but Django Unchained: When Leo's character offers a handshake it was pretty obvious what was about to happen. Of course that might just be good foreshadowing.

The twist wasn't Plummer being the villain but the Vulcan Officer.

Oh right, yeah. Kim Catrall with a REEEEEALLLLLY bad haircut. It's a tall order to make her look unattractive (at least back then) but damn did they pull it off.

I got the idea for this thread when I watched TDKR again recently. I thought it was kind of ridiculous how Talia's inclusion was played off to be this big "dun-dun-DUUUN" kind of moment when, really, even casual Batfans probably would've been able to piece together who "Miranda Tate" was early on in the film. Marion Cotillard herself even tried to outright deny that she was Talia in interviews before TDKR's release, which I'm sure a lot of people on these boards got a good chuckle at.
It was only obvious to Batfans. The general audience had no idea.

Just how people on these boards were b*tching about how painfully obvious it was that Harvey Dent was going to become Two-Face at the end of TDK.

Again, since we know the backstory of these characters, we knew this. But for the general audience, the people who make these movies the most money, they were legitimately surprised. As they likely were with the Talia twist.

Frankly, these movies are made with the understanding that most people probably have never heard if Talia Al Guhl which is why when it was revealed it was a shock.

Doesn't mean it's lazy writing or that it was obvious. It simply means that you know more than the general public about Batman.

That's all.

Detective Hoffman being in on it in the SAW films only because they showed him pocketing crime scene evidence.

The latest Scream movie's plot twist was pretty obvious.

Excuse me but many people haven't got this even today and think that Kyle is the "new" father with the original John Connor being fathered by another one...

Devil was even more obvious. I dont even know if you even could call it a twist really... I mean, could the devil really be anyone other than the old lady? In any story ever? l o l
Everyone knew the twist. The thing is the movie had you guessing which way it was going to go. Did Teddy get tricked by the doctors or was he actually crazy.

The actual ending is interesting, where he pretends he still is crazy to get lobotomized.

"No, I am your father"

That "twist" is pretty obvious if you've seen Revenge of the Sith

The Usual Suspects was great when I first watch it in film class.

But once you know the twist, it just wasn't that special or exciting anymore when you watch it a second time.
