    Some boring movies have a really good payoff at the end. Name some boring movies that you watched til the end, and wa glad you did.

    This movie is overrated because the ending was so awesome......

    I actually own this movie. I used to be a huge Eminem fan, until he got all silly on Curtain Call. I heard his new single, Not Afraid, today. Sounds good.

    Anyway, this was one of the best movie endings ever, to me. The group of thugs have jumped him and put a gun to his head because he caught a mutual friend doing it with his girlfriend. Now he has to battle them in a contest.

    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    I'm not an Eminem fan, but I loved the movie 8 Mile.


    I live near 8 Mile Rd, and I love to watch movies filmed in Detroit, and see how many landmarks I recognize. I thought that the movie captured Detroit well-the director (Curtis Hanson?) has a real good camera eye.

    The first Saw was pretty much an ordinary psychological thriller but then come the end where everything comes together and it is all clear. The moment when Jigsaw rises off of the floor where he has been playing dead the whole time is probably one of the biggest "Oh Shit!" moments in cinema. Yvette and I were watching that movie in bed one saturday morning and she jumped out of bed and ran to the TV not being able to believe what she was seeing and kept saying, "Oh shit! Oh shit!" over and over.

    Although I consider this a brilliant movie, this is a great ending:

    Not too many movies this well acted anymore.
