Here I consider a wide variety of movies. As long as there is a mysterious situation that is gradually revealed in the movie,
which is not obvious to guess, and the ending is not the usual obvious Hollywood ending.
Basically movies that present some chalenge to guees the outcome of the movie.
Mostly newer movies are includedd.
Book adaptations, no matter how great when reading by the fireplace on a rainy day, in my opinion require lots of changes in order to overcome the sitcom/theater feel of them and become good movies, and therefore are also not included.
