I was looking on the IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes sites for movies like Memento. On IMDb i searched “movies that began with the ending.” On Rotten Tomatoes I searched “movies like Memento.” I personally like movies that start with the ending. I also like movies that have a bit of psychology in them. All of these movies keep you on your toes. They keep you interested because they start from the end or revisit previous scenes. They mess with your mind and the minds of the characters. You really have to pay attention to what’s going on in the movie. I love watching movies like this. I picked these movies by taking five movies that were on both lists. That didn’t leave me with a lot of options because IMDb only posted thirty movies and Rotten Tomatoes posted a lot more. So here is a brief summary of each movie. I’ll
try not to completely spoil the movies for those of you who have not seen them.
