Spoiled Rotten

View Chris Kavan's Profile

If there is one downfall to having instant access to information via this wonderful thing called the internet, it's that you also have instant access to things best left undiscovered. The days of the twist ending and surprise factor is, for the most part, gone. Be it movies, TV shows, even books - if you want to find out what happens, you can surely dig around and spoil yourself. I admit I have gone digging myself and I regret it every time. You can also run into the ass that spoils things too by talking, usually in a very loud voice, about exactly what happens - quote Homer Simpson "Wow! What an ending. Who would have thought Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker's father?"

I won't spoil them (if you want to be weak-willed, by all means hit the Spoilers Thread in the forum) - but here are some movies that are best left discovered on your own.

1) The Sixth Sense - I'm sure most people have seen this, but there are such things as future generations. They should be just as surprised at this masterful twist ending as we were. M. Night may not be regarded in such high esteem, but his was surely one of his best efforts.

2) The Crying Game - I admit I know about the end, but I haven't seen this film, so I broke my own rule. If you don't know what happens, then go watch this movie, I guarantee you won't see it coming.

3) The Usual Suspects - A mystery, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in a crime. If the name Keyser Soze doesn't ring a bell, then by all means watch this intriguing film. It may take you a few times to wrap your head around it, but that's the beauty of this movie.

4) Memento - Yes, it starts at the end, but spoiling the beginning is much worse. This is a film that deserves to be watched with no prior knowledge and may require repeat viewings to totally discern.

5) Audition - The last 15 minutes are brutal, but if you know what's coming it kind of defeats the whole purpose of building up Takashi Miike's horror film. It starts off as a light drama but ends unbelievably. You must SEE it to believe it - so watch it, don't read about it.

If you can manage it, put your inquisitive mind to rest. It may be impossible to avoid all spoilers, but the gratification you get from finding out what happens only serves to lessen the impact when actually viewing it. And if you're one of those people who like spoiling things, you're a jerky jerk face and should be ashamed of yourself.
