Top 25 movies with a mind-blowing "last minute" ...
Revelations, final plot twists, emotional climax ... which of these 25 films features the most mind-blowing "last minute"?
The one-location movie is a producer’s best friend and a director’s worst enemy. On the budgetary side of business, it’s a dream come true: a single set, a small stable of characters, no cordoning off a public area for shooting. But there are also manifold creative challenges — there’s nothing to rely on but good ol’ fashioned acting, writing, and camerawork. Flash and style can only get a filmmaker so far when they’ve got nothing to work with but four walls, a handful of performers, and words.

Movies with a Minimal Cast
Some movies center on a tight drama involving a very minimal amount of characters (three, two, or even just one). They forego large casts, and that small core pretty much have all the speaking and acting parts. Some of these movies might have larger casts than just that core, but they are either "extras" in one small scene, or voice-only (offscreen). The overwhelming majority of the time and narrative of these films depicts only that minimal core interacting. These films are usually intense character studies, shown in a very small-group (or pair, or singular) dynamic. Which one of these films of that style makes use of it in a way you like best?

30 memorable quotes said before dying ...
A great screen character doesn't necessarily need a great entrance but the exit MUST leave an indelible impact on the viewer's mind, and if by any chance (of lack of) the character dies, the chances are high that his or her last words shall never be forgotten by collective memories. This is a compilation of 30 quotes uttered by (mainly important or scene-stealing supporting) characters before their last gasp, or the following, expected or not, 'bang' or 'boom' ... and whether they see death coming and try to leave the world with style or honor, or don't see it but remain true to their nature, the last quote remaings their last shining cinematic moment. So, which of these 30 last words apart from the iconic and plot-defining "Rosebud" do you think is the most memorable? Discuss here PS: No spoilers since the names of the characters (may they rest in peace or rot in hell) are never mentioned
