I also felt the big twist at the end was tacked on and the movie really didn't need it. 

What? The movie is good no matter what, but the twist makes it great. Plus it's inevitable. The movie would make less sense if the twist wasn't revealed.

I've said this numerous times, that I went in knowing what the ending would be and still thought it was great.  People give M. Night a bad rap because of his twist endings but this film was great.  It wasn't a gimmick in his first film.

I agree. The only bad film he has made is Lady in the Water.

Clerks is Neil Simon with swearing.  Horrible acting, but Smith did get better

I'm assuming Pulp Fiction will be resurrected...

How many are possibly being resurrected?  My vote would also go to Pulp Fiction it has to be said.

If we can just convince another twenty people to participate, we can make it a double-elimination tournament!  :D

I get to save 4.  There are 3 I'd want to save so far, but only 2 decisions I disagree with.

It's a ploy to drive up blog readership.
