Is there any movie at all that you actually see it and don't know what's happening? Either from the beginning  or middle?

Safe house. the island. thats all i can think of atm cuz i don't feel like thinking about it lol.

I sometimes don't understand what is happening when watching Harry Potter movies. I know that makes me look like an idiot though, as those are well made films and hardly too complex. Nevertheless, I've been lost as to what is happening at times, or rather what the significance of certain events are. Maybe it would have helped if I had read the books.

@Icon: @jeanlucpicard: Which parts? or the whole movie?

@Primmaster64: FOr safe house it was a few things, they would start talking about somethings they never mentioned as if they've been talking about it the whole movie lol.

For the island im not totally sure if thats the correct movie, but i think im thinking of a different movie.

Star wars: the phantom menace. I don't know what the trade federalization motives were and why they started the war. You needed a vein diagram to explain the whole story. The characters had no emotions and the talk scene were boring, they just stood there and talked.The people were restricted to 30 feet to act on because that's how long the set was. This really hurt the movie.

The answer is very simple. George Lucas. He can not writer or direct.

Watch all of this review. It's in 7 parts but it shows how bad that film is.

I want to say Inception, because that is probably the most complicated movie recently released, but I followed it perfectly.

#16 Posted by krilling (2488 posts) - - Show Bio

Film socialisme. Watching this film became so addleheaded and boring that I just broke up following the plot. Though it has some funny moments.

Then you didn't pay attention. This was stated in the opening crawl

I like how people think RLM reviews substantiate anything. This is the same review where they said Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan should have fought an entire army...despite being driven off by only a couple droidekas, the same review where they said that the Trade Federation army invading Naboo is making up information...despite the fact that the Trade Federation army invaded Naboo, the same review that where they said that the Trade Federation would appreciate taxes on trade routes...despite how obviously idiotic that assertion is. I could go on. 
 
TPM has a number of problems, but surprisingly, RLM failed to actually point most of them out. Yet for whatever reason, people point to RLM reviews of the PT as if they mean anything. By all means, let's address the problems in the movie, but let's not post a link to a review that clearly makes no sense.

The Bourne movies left me with some questions the first time around but not as much anymore.

Inception... the whole thing... but then I rewatched it with the comfort of subtitles and understood the whole thing, most of it.

The ending of Shutter Island confused me. Don't get me wrong, it was a great film and I won't spoil the ending but it almost confused me as much as Inception's ending.

I hate that review. Not that I necessarily disagree, but the guy is just so incredibly boring.

Omg, this. Half the reason I can't stand this movie is that it's far too complex for what it's supposed to be. Hulk is a monster who wants to be left alone. What part of that was too hard about that for Ang Lee to understand?

#25 Posted by Phylos (2569 posts) - - Show Bio

It's probably one of my favorites but also one of the biggest movies that confuses me.

Guillermo Del Toros, Pan's Labyrinth.

Was the main character really this mystical/princess like individual or was she just using her imagination to escape what was really going on?

I thought it was one of those movies where it wants YOU to decide what really happened.

Other than that, fantastic film.

 Anyway, there's a ton of foreign (mostly Korean) films I don't quite understand, but the one American film I never got, was 2001: A space Odyssey, seriously what's up with the giant space fetus??

All you need to know is that Ozy's a good guy who does bad things. Other than that, it's best not to overthink it. The book has a giant vagina monster. Now that's loco.

It may have been a part of his evolution and remembering the womb. I didn't read the books to find out because Arthur C. Clarke's stories always seemed bleak.

@Primmaster64: It was a really strange sci-fi movie involving humans, mutants, aliens and the gods. Horus needs to breed and uses Thomas Kretschmann's character as his vessel. I watched it when I had too much "candy."

SPOILER ALERT*********************************************************************************

He Realized he had killed his wife and had nothing left in reality. They wanted him back in reality and to become sane and if he didn't they were going to lobotomize him. But it was too depressing to face the guilt of killing his wife. So after the lecture by the doctors he realizes hes a murderer and chooses to have a lobotomy by fooling them into thinking he went back to being the hero detective. He ask's the question... "Would live as a monster or die as a hero?" Hopefully that clears it up.

@RUKM: Now that does make more sense. So he was a mental patient after all. Many thanks for clearing that up.

- If you wanted to make a terrible near-porn movie starring one of the girls from Saved by the Bell, why would you pick the one the least number of people wanted to see naked?

Superman Returns and Terminater Salvation. Especially Terminater Salvation. I thought there was no story and there were only explosions to keep the audience awake

Donnie Darko. I hate it when writers come up with an intriguing convoluted story which keeps you guessing the whole time, and then they come up with a bullshit ending which explains nothing.

Alrighty then. Let me learn a something:

Ok, so in the Chris Reeves's Superman series, Superman hears that they've found Krypton, so he goes away for a while. Then all of a sudden, he comes back to Earth after a few years of absence. Lois Lane's got a fiance, a kid, and wrote an award winning article "Why the World Doesn't Need Superman." Lex Luthor is not in prison because Superman never came to the trial (stupid, but stay with me.) So Lex finds out about these Kryptonian crystals (the same that built Superman's Fortress of Solitude out of nothing in the first Superman movie.) He gets the bright idea to well... make a whole continent out of the stuff for him to sell/rule/do whatever. While that's going on, Superman's stalking Lois Lane (and yeah, it is stalking). He and Lois find out that her kid is Superman's son, and Superman feels bad about it. Climax of the movie's when Superman's got a piece of Kryptonite lodged in his skin, courtesy of Luthor. Anywho, he stops Lex's "evil" plan by lifting a whole mountain of Kryptonite, and everything's good again. Credits.

If you're still confused, my best advice to you is to forget this movie exists, and go wait for Man of Steel. Returns was horribly written, had horrible plot, and had a horrible everything (excluding Brandon Routh).

I can't think of a movie that confused me but maybe that's because I don't try to figure out what was the intended meaning but just go with the meaning that I get from watching it and that's all I need to be satisfied.

The Fountain is my favorite movie, i'll agree it's odd, I had to watch it a few times to get a grasp on it, but it's basically just a fictional manifestation of obsession and grief over death.
