16 INSANE Twist Endings That Saved Their Movies

Films are remembered for various reasons. Some people may remember a movie for its acting, its directing, or its cinematography, or perhaps certain aspects of the story, while others may remember a movie for one specific scene in particular; it depends. However, one thing that always gets people talking is a twist.

A twist can amplify a movie that has already captivated audiences (e.g. Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back), and sometimes, it can even save a movie from going down as a failure. If done right, a twist can make all the difference in the world for a film. But that’s not …

Nintendo Confirms That Mario Does Indeed Punch Yoshi

Nintendo has confirmed a popular (and dark) Super Mario fan theory that, when the plumber rides Yoshi, he hits him to make him eat eggs. The friendship between Super Mario and his dinosaur pal Yoshi is well known. The cartoon-y dino first appeared on TV screens back in 1990 where he was Mario’s willing steed, but now he fits into a bigger alternate reading of the franchise.

Recently a dark theory that Mario may not actually be Nintendo’s greatest hero and is, in fact, a villain has gained traction. This comes from officially released details from Nintendo about the ex-plumber’s actions in new game Super Mario Odyssey where taking over other characters with his magic hat is called “capturing”. Now we have further suggestions of a …
