  • So, about this spoiler-thingy: the idea that it’s more accepted to bloop plot twists and certain dramatic endings from old movies than newer is so – so – wrong and arrogant. Yes, there sure lies a difference to talk about plot ingrediences (that Titanic sinking) and underestimating the people by telling the movie from start to finish if the movie relies on dramatic plot twists (like saying in that Titanic the romantic lead doesn’t survive – ups sorry). But the old movies are more available and so immune to spoiling them? That’s so false assumption. Even in a time of Netflix and Amazon and torrents and public libraries – there’s no time or/and money watch everything what’s considered essential cinema. I’m sorry if I sound rough with this, I like your podcast and you guys talking about movies, and listen even the episodes about films I haven’t yet seen. I don’t remember anything particular spoiler you’ve blurped, and I preciate that you mentioned the spoiler about The Social Network some episodes ago.

    I’ve myself ruined couple of movie experiences because of reading a bad review (Antichrist) or reading a too precise description (The Vanishing) before seeing the movie. I hoped in both times that I could forget the “twist” but it turned out that I just waited those things to happen in the movie. There is a way to mingle around spoiling elements without telling too much – what I find as a considerate and good practice in film journalism. At least mention if you’re gonna discuss about the movie in a way it’s not recommended to listen (certain parts) if you want to keep the surprise element when watching the movie first time. And I’m not saying you’d need to scream SPOILERS AHEAD in the beginning of the podcast. :D

    I’ve not before this bumped into the spoiler-frenzy you talked about, but my two cents about it is that maybe arrogance has rised and people tend to assume more often today that you’ve seen everything what they’ve seen.
