Movie Spoilers

Spoiler Alerts, a lot of movies are coming out based on books. I've found places where I can get spoilers for these. The books they were based on.

It turns out the authors of the books have given out spoilers in great detail. Thousands of words of spoilers.

You can go see the upcoming Romeo and Juliet, but some guy named William Shakespeare already gave out the ending. Spoiler Alert: They die at the end.

It's the same with a lot of upcoming movies.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith already gave away the ending in a book and a graphic novel.

With the sequel to the Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins gave away the ending in her book.

Even worse, Movies based on historical events. Most Universities have entire departments dedicated to giving out spoilers.

I've been watching the series Spartacus, it turns out there are many Professors at several universities that have based their careers on giving out spoilers for this series.

The only way to avoid spoilers is to never read books and never study history, that way you won't know the ending to “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”

That's OK. I don't mind knowing the ending. Everyone knew the ending of Titanic, and yet they still went.

It's been studied and people really don't mind spoilers for good films and books. In good story the journey is more important then the destination. A bad story-teller (M. Night Shama-lama-ding-dong) relies completely on the ending. So if there is a spoiler it highlights that there was no journey to it.
