I guess it depends what you mean when you say "mindblowing". Like, movies with a good twist at the end or just very neat concepts? In either case: The Usual Suspects Memento Being John Malkovich The Matrix The Truman Show Maybe Inception if you watch it when high Any Coen brothers' movie basically (not in the twist sense of course, just the way their movies are presented and etc. is amazing)
Videodrome and eXistenZ by David Cronenberg are pretty interesting.
The Game, if you're still in a David Fincher mood.
[QUOTE=postal;35501588]^Yeah Nolan is good for that. Same for The Prestige. Also Del Toro's Spanish movies The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth have some pretty amazing endings IMO[/QUOTE] God dammit yes the prestige. All my friends thought it was a bad movie but I went against the grain and watched it. Holy shit. Amazing movie.
Enter The Void, OldBoy, Mr. Nobody, Being John Malkovich, "Synecdoche, New York", Tree of Life, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Twilight.
Not too mindblowing, but Seven Pounds I thought was a good film.
Oldboy is definetly a movie with an ending you WON'T forget
Really surprised this hasn't been posted yet, [url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118929/]Dark City[/url]
Mad Max 1 and 2, mind blowing for the day. I don't count 3, no amount of Tina can fix what was broken...
The Mist Dat ending...
[QUOTE=Primus;35529498]The Mist Dat ending...[/QUOTE] That ending is hilarious. Inception would be mindblowing if it wasn't so well known, but everyone knows it already. The first time I saw it my mind was blown though.
Donnie Darko I guess.

[QUOTE=YeahScience;35539887]What. :v:[/QUOTE] I do not know if you're serious, but I personally thought that the ending was funny because I had previously read the short story and knew where it was going up until [sp]he kills everyone, including his son. Then the military came[/sp] and I thought it was so horrible and brilliant at the same time, I laughed.
Primer. You [i]will[/i] watch the movie over and over.
The Green Mile, I cried. Amazing movie. Forrest Gump, I cannot get enough of that movie.
[QUOTE=Jookia;35546026]Primer. You [i]will[/i] watch the movie over and over.[/QUOTE] take it from me. that "[I]will[/I]" is dependent on the user. i understood that shit first time through. it's still brilliantly intricate and inexplicit. the thing that would throw people off i guess is the metric ton of techno babble
The assassination of Jesse James Everything in it is just perfect for me. Especially the narrator.

"I understood it first time through" he says.
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;35547363]i understood that shit first time through. it's still brilliantly intricate and inexplicit.[/QUOTE] No you didn't. That's about all I can say. You may think you did. But you didn't.
With the help of infographics and 2hrs of attention, I think you could.
The Machinist.
The Prestige
[QUOTE=Akasori;35558292]The Machinist.[/QUOTE] Christian Bale was good in that but god damn I hated that film. It was too convoluted. I recommend Jacob's Ladder, mostly because all of my other suggestions have already been said.
A Scanner Darkly maybe?
I just watched Primer... My brain literally does not have enough computational power to understand what I just watched. I would need to sit down and draw a huge flow chart or something.
[QUOTE=Jookia;35554486]No you didn't. That's about all I can say. You may think you did. But you didn't.[/QUOTE] uhh yeah i understood it perfectly. are you just jealous i actually paid attention throughout the movie? what's so hard to understand about the plot? like seriously what do people specifically get hung up on? [editline]13th April 2012[/editline] i'll admit i didn't understand the movie just like that. i'm fairly certain i had to ponder a few things but i did eventually get it completely after the first viewing.
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;35547363]i understood that shit first time through.[/QUOTE] no you didn't explain the fungus.
A Scanner Darkly (the book is better, but the film is still good) [editline]14th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=rivershark;35559930]Christian Bale was good in that but god damn I hated that film. It was too convoluted.[/QUOTE] I didn't find it convoluted at all, it was fairly simple really. I really liked it. [editline]14th April 2012[/editline] Also I know that since it's technically anime Facepunch will eat my liver, but The End of Evangelion is quite something. You have to watch the series first (which is pretty mindblowing in its own right) but [i]damn[/i].
[QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;35566264]no you didn't explain the fungus.[/QUOTE] are you kidding? [editline]14th April 2012[/editline] i mean they explain it in the movie, it's not a great leap. [sp]the bacteria/fungus/whatever collected there as a result of just being inside the machine because that it would have taken like 5 days or something like that for that amount to accumulate. thus the giant leap. they put the watch in and discover time is not the same inside the box as it is on the outside while it's running[/sp] tis been a while and i've only actually watched it twice
