I pit Spoiler Warnings

OK, fair enough, you’ve seen a film or TV series that is yet to receive general worldwide release…or people may have videoed it and still be waiting to watch it…

But a five-year-old film? Or a musical from god-knows-when (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=232967)?

What next? Macbeth (spoliers)…The Resurrection spoilers…grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I have an ex-GF who still hasn’t seen Casablanca.

It’s not like spoiler boxes cost anything. There are some people who are behind on the movie watching. A little common courtesy goes a long way.

P.S. It’s a cookbook.

The butler is Luke’s father.

They blew it up.

She’s a guy.

On the third day, He rose again.

This is incredibly stupid. There’s a first time for every movie you see.

Believe it or not, there are people who haven’t seen every single film ever made. I, for example, haven’t seen Treasure of the Sierra Madre, even though I’m a huge film nut and I consider a good weekend to be one during which I watch at least four movies. Does the fact that a film is old somehow lessen the impact of a surprise ending?

Or is it that you figure everyone’s been exposed to spoilers elsewhere so there’s no point in warning people here? This line of reasoning seems akin to “Everyone’s going to die sooner or later, so murder is not wrong.” (Though on an admittedly smaller scale.)


And P.S.: I haven’t seen South Pacific either; think we could have had a spoiler warning on that link?

Lady Macbeth is a GUY!!! WOW!!!

Gollum bites the ring off his finger. Rosebud is a sled. They score the tying TD but miss the extra point. Eventually Rhet gets sick of her crap and leaves her. The crazy groundskeeper blows up the golf course, but the good guys win the tournament. He gets killed but comes back to life and flies off into the heavens. The butler did it.

Was that about Jesus or ET?


The boat hits an iceberg and sinks.

Oh, great! I was going to buy the complete Love Boat series. Way to ruin it.

Bruce Willis is a ghost.

She has a dick.

She thinks he’s really dead and he kills himself then he wakes up and sees her and he kills himself for real.

The killer is the little girl and the ring is the top of the well.

She dies at the end.

It’s all a dream.

Beowulf dies.

I win. :smiley:

She’s not dead.

He dies. The neighbor did it.
He dies. The kid from earlier did it.
He dies. The General did it.
He dies. The Emporer did it.
He dies. The English did it.
He dies. The Germans did it.
He dies. The Russians did it.
He dies. The South did it.
She dies. He did it.

He doesn’t die, but the other guy pretends he’s him and dies in his place. The French did it.

You !@#$%! I freakin’ learned Anglo-Saxon so I could read Beowulf, and now you spoil it by giving away the ending while I was halfway through.

What!? I didn’t even know He dies! I’m still on Matthew 5:7!

:smiley: :smiley:

they married and lived happily ever after…

Poor Frodo! So much for passing into the west…

Well, my little sister still hasn’t seen ET, and I hadn’t seen “It’s a Wonderful Life” until just a few years ago (I’m 44).
