Movies That Made No Sense...

...but you liked them anyway. lol

Name some...


1) Eraserhead: wtf was THAT about?? eek Was it a commentary on impending fatherhood??...On marriage?...On puffy-cheeked girls dancing on crunch sperm??...Whatever it was about, I found myself liking it...lol boxed

2) Mulholland Drive: Ok, I finally ended up understanding what was happening throughout the movie...but while first watching it, I kept thinking something was going to happen to finally explain just what the hell was actually going on. Nope...lol...but I really liked watching it anyway. nod Figuring it out later made me like it even more.

3) 2001: A Space Odyssey: I got the "sense" of what it was about..kinda sorta. confused But the visuals and the whole Hal 2000 scene blew me away...along with the monolith just showing up everywhere. I now know what it's about...and again, knowing makes me go "Ohhhhh!!" and love it even more.

some movies you need be stoned to watch.
News: Prince pulls his head out his ass in the last moment.
Bad News: Prince wasted too much quality time doing so.
You have those internalized issues because you want to, you like to, stop.

Napoleon Dynamite. But I'll say this: The stupidity of that movie is brilliant. I didn't know what the plot was or what the hell was going on, but I sure laughed the whole way through it.

When I rented this movie, I remember that when the two women were in the bedroom, I was thinking "If this were a perfect world, these two lovelies would start to get it on".
When they actually did, I quickly called up my brother-in-law, "Mann...you gotta come over! I got the best movie ever!!

I guess you didn't read the books. If you had, you wouldn't expect the movie to make any sense at all. lol

Okay, this movie just pissed me off. mad

I didn't get it at all, and a bunch of my friends were like, "oh, you have to watch it at least two or three times, and then, BAM! You get it! David Lynch is a GENIUS!" Fuck that, dude. neutral It confused me the first time, and I'm not trying to feel stupid twice in a row. It's been three years since I saw it and I still haven't had the desire to try it again.

David Lynch is very confusing. I'm a fan but sometimes I just say "Well, it was, what it was."

Well, I'll say this: If I ever do watch it again, I'll make sure I'm not high on hashish.

Memento? you know, there was some scientific report recently (I think it was on Yahoo news) that pointed out that we remember things in reverse.

i remeber watching this on bootleg pay per view and falling asleep on it, but through the night i kept waking up on different parts of it 'cuz it aired repeatedly over a 24 hour period and then falling back to sleep. watching it like that made it even more surreal, because i took it in in a jumbled order on top of the movie being jumbled already. when i actually sat down and watched it all the way through, i was like damn. i loved it, though i still want to see the movie it was based on, supposedly it's better.

I loved Vanilla Sky. Once you figure out what's going on you realize what a great movie it is. I saw it a bunch of times and liked it more and more with each viewing.

This is how I interpreted Mulholland Drive: Everything before the scene where Rita opens the blue box is fantasy. Everything after is reality. I hope that helps.

See, I don't even remember the blue box! lol I remember that scary little dirty man, and the scene where she's masturbating and crying. That's about it.
