I can really recommend Inception! Anyone have some movies they can recommend, where the plot is not predictable, yet everything in the story can seem believable?ā€‹

This is a hard one. The prize is ELDEN RING. Hint will be given after a couple of days depending on amount of entries.

HINT:
Magic bytes

EDIT:
Now that the giveaway is over, here's the solution:

Right click and press "Inspect" on this post, and you'll find a hidden link to a GIF on Dropbox.
I chose a GIF of Inception, because I thought it could be perceived as "a GIF inside a GIF", for those who have watched the movie.
GIFs, like most files, have file signatures, aka. magic bytes. If you download the file and check it with a hex editor, you can see that beyond the file signature footer (00 3B) there is more data, which happens to be the header signature of another GIF (47 49 46 38 39 61, or "GIF89a"). Copying this data and saving it into another GIF file will yield an image of a data matrix code. Scanning this with your phone (online readers seem to have a bit of trouble with it) will yield the 5 characters needed for the giveaway URL.

NOTE: Copying the text data (instead of the hex data) through the means of notepad or the like will not work, because it will yield incomplete data. This is because the data contains what would be translated into ASCII's control characters, which are non-printable.

Congratz to the 29(+?) people who completely the puzzle!

EDIT 2:
Sorry guys, the giveaway has been deleted due to a region restriction... The puzzle will remain up for those who want to try. :-)

Primer (2004)
It may seem like it makes not much sense, and is unbeliavable, but if you are really paying attention or, as in my case, watch a detailed explanation video on YT afterwards, it all makes perfect sense. It is said by many critics that this is the most plausible and most intelligent time travel story ever made.

Run Lola Run

I'm not sure if it falls under your definition, but this is what came to my mind. I've seen it quite a while ago, but it's an interesting mind-bending one ;)

I'm surprised that no one mentioned Knives Out. It is more of a conventional detective film rather than a mind-twisting (not in a good way imo) Nolan style of movie. It is kinda all fancy and refined
There is also Under the Silver Lake, Wind River, The Departed. And many others, but I guess you have enough to watch as you didn't even see the legendary ones like Shawshank Redemption.

Knives Out is "conventional" alright. To the point of utter predictability.
I did find Wind River to be very emotionally powerful despite the rather dull performance of Renner.

Same. There was maybe 4 entries for the longest time and now there are 21. I wonder if 21 people really solved it or brute forced it.

I doubt many of the entries are brute forced. Surely there are server-side measurements to prevent such brute force attacks, as well as the chances of getting into valid and currently active GA is incredibly slim. I don't have any data to back up my claim, but I don't mind being proven wrong :-)

How does some Japanese macabre sound to you? Rampo Noir (2005) is fascinating in a sick, disturbing way... and not something I recommend watching if you have a weak stomach.

Punch-Drunk Love - My favorite romance movie, and very underappreciated, unfortunately.

What Happened to Monday - I find it difficult to recommend sci-fi movies, because if you are thorough you will always find holes in the story, but this is a movie that I particularly love and is not so recommended by people, and the suspension of disbelief works well if you allow it.

Not the ones that are well written by smart writers but I must admit the ratio of such sci-fi movies to the dumb mass produced messes written by morons is increasingly low.

and the suspension of disbelief works well if you allow it.

Trust me, it doesn't work if you have a twin, know twins or even really if you pay attention to details. Credible, it is not.

wtf!!!

  • I love Shrek. How come no one's recommended it. Does it even fit the theme?
  • Why does that mp4 exist? How did someone manage that.
  • Have seen Shrek in many forms on the internet, but why such a tiny square box?
  • Why are there so many Shrek mp4s and gifs on the net? What the hell is wrong with people?

One of my favorite movies is 'eXistenZ'.
I will not say too much about it, as I don't want to spoil anything about it, if you never seen it, but it will boggle your mind for sure.

Recently seen on TV: The Guilty, a Danish Film with a brilliant twist. (Americans are doing a remake with Jake Gyllenhaal)
And Old Boy, a Korean Film certainly already cited before (And guess ? Yep, also Remaked by U.S.)

Watch Originals, anyway !

I couldn't take the US The Guilty seriously, it basically copied the subtitles for the original word for word.

I really suck at puzzles.
Some recommendations:

Solution for the puzzle is up :-)

The Prestige has been noted
According to what I saw in the trailer, Flightplan looks like a movie where I'd advocate for having fentanyl available for the crew to use on unruly passengers lol. Not quite sure if it's my kind of movie, but I'll keep it in mind, thanks :-)

In the movie,Jodie Claims that She brought her Daughter on the flight while everyone thinks that she's hallucinating due to her recent tragedy.So its interesting, how things turnout.

Seems like a few months away from the puzzle section are enough to forget how to solve puzzles ^^"

No movie other than the ones already mentioned comes to mind. A tv show does though: Westworld (1st season)

Westworld I've heard good things about, and it's been considered. I just haven't ever gotten around to start watching a new TV show, as I'll probably spend half an eternity getting through an entire season :-) I think it's a good recommendation, thanks!
