Worst Plot Twist: Flight of the Phoenix - Oh my God! He made model airplanes for a living?!? How original!!!

:-P


Whoa! Did you say Titanic??? The only twist ending there could be would be if the boat missed the iceberg and safely made it to port.

Also, did you see the original Flight of the Phoenix with Jimmy Stewart? It was considerably better, the delivery was much more tactful. Plus it worked for it's time period, but certainly not so much for this one. Plus, who's that black guy who is never in a scene for more than 10 seconds without removing his shirt? Yeah, that's gonna make me go see it.

Anyway, obviously making model airplanes is no twist. I guess the twist was really how dumb the crew was to not just trust the guy... it's true, model planes DO have to be more aerodynamic since there is no pilot. A sad performance by House indeed.

I had forgot about it until that post, but Memento was a great one.

I threw Titanic in there to see who might catch it. :-)

Glad someone else thought the Phoenix twist was bad.

Reading around... Found some more:

Jacob's Ladder - superb twist
Planet of the Apes - classic twist for the ages
Alien - yep

More that I thought of, too:

I just saw Silent Hill. Once I actually figured out what happened, I was pleasantly surprised, as I was expecting less from the movie. It also helped that I'd never played the game...

The Ring had a good twist/cliffhanger, even if the sequel didn't really deliver on it.

Going with the Jacob's Ladder theme, Stay delivered a nice twist, even if it was a bit slow at times.

I read the book, so that one totally slipped my mind. Even though I do own the movie too. :-b
