Welcome to another wonderful edition of Friday Question Fun! To see all the past questions, click here.
This week, the question is simple and can be answered with a yes or no, but I’d like you to elaborate on your answer since lots of people are so touchy about spoilers.
Is knowing a movie has a twist ending a spoiler?
I saw this question come up on Reddit, I think and it really got me thinking about what is considered a spoiler these days. I mean, it’s nice going into a movie totally fresh but if you know there’s a twist at the end, are you just going to look for the twist and try to figure the movie out? Does that lessen the impact of the twist?
Personally, I think it does ruin a bit of the fun of the twist itself and the shocking thing is that many times, the trailer of the movie will mention there’s a twist. “You won’t believe the twist!” or “you’ll never see the twist coming!”. Well, I may not have seen the twist coming if I wasn’t informed about it…
I can also see how this is taking spoiler sensitivity a bit too far. I dunno, I guess I just like going in knowing as little about the film as possible. It really helps me absorb everything.
What about you?
