Chances are, you’re going to read this thread anyway, out of sheer curiosity. Was the title not enough of a warning? This thread contains spoilers people! For a great many movies, games, books etc. Most of these, you won’t have anything spoiled. You know it already. Others, you won’t know. Question is, will you open the spoiler boxes for things you don’t know yet? This to me is a great challenge; I dont want things spoiled, but sometimes, I cant resist opening the box. Then, when the “Aw, Man!” sets in, I have no-one to blame but myself. What type of person are you? To spoil or not to spoil? Try these: I should stress, some of these are MASSIVE THERMONUCLEAR FREAKIN’ spoilers which may ruin enjoyment of their respective movies. If you dont want to know, then dont open the boxes. And don’t balme me! This is an experiment I’d like to try. Feel free to post more yourselves.

Charles Shultz spoiled Citizen Cane in national news papers accross the country. Linus is sitting watching TV and Lucy asks him what he was watching. He says Citizen Cane and that he has never seen it. She then says Rose bud was his sledLinus then screams in frustration.
I do not understand people who open threads about entertainments they have not yet experienced, encounter spoilers, and then gripe at the person who posted the spoiler for doing it. I’ve had people gripe at me for posting alleged spoilers months or years after the fact, and I am all about the “bitch, don’t open the thread.” Seriously, if the thread is about that great new movie and you haven’t seen the movie yet but intend to, don’t open the thread. Wait until after you’ve seen the movie. If it’s about a movie/book/video game/whatever that’s been out for a while, don’t be surprised if plot points of the thing that’s been out there for months or years or decades are given away.
And that goes double or triple for threads that a) contain the name of the entertainment in the thread title or b) has the word SPOILERS right in the thread title.
Now, if the thread is about Entertainment A and someone brings up Entertainment B, then yeah, definitely err on the side of caution when discussing B. But for real, don’t get pissed off if you get spoiled for Entertainment A since you knew the likelihhod of A spoilers in a thread about A is very high.
They all did it! Everyone who was a suspect was in on the plot to kill the old bastard and each took a turn stabbing him.
The killer (Kevin Spacey) has killed Brad Pitt’s wife & stuck her head in the box that Pitt opens. Pitt then shoots Spacey in a fit of RAGE - the last of the seven deadly sin.
The dog gets rabies & is put down.
The construction co. that built the tract house complex never moved the bodies! The corpses of the disturbed dead start erupting out of the ground, the house implodes, and the family get a hotel room without a tv set!
