Skip to comments.Hollywood – Stop spoiling our movies: Today’s trailers reveal every last 'surprising' twist.

The two most meaningless words in Hollywood today are "spoiler alert."
Movie critics traditionally use the words before revealing a particular scene or action while writing a review. It's a considerate thing to do, but hardly necessary in the gutless climate that now pervades the selling of movies.
There is nothing for critics to spoil anymore. Everything is revealed.

You needn't worry about that: If you put your pocketbook down, it will stick to the floor like glue. If it's a cheap theater, the urine smell drives most of the creeps off anyway.
I always keep my pocketbook on my lap. But I see so many stupid people putting theirs on the ground.
Here in Huntington, NY we had a rash of thieves stealing pocketbooks left on the ground.
No matter where I am, my pocketbook is ALWAYS as close to my body as physics can allow. And I will fight for it.
Another great German flick is "The Tunnel". Almost as anti-communist as "Lives of Others".
I happen to love Korean flicks but they are CRAZY. Oldboy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance are not for the faint of heart.
I noticed that a few years back: if you saw the trailer, there was no reason to shell out for the movie.
The economic downturn has lowered salaries being paid top actors because there are a lot more of them waiting around for a role.
The writing is a key challenge. Great actors cannot save a poor script.
The screenplay becomes the centerpiece of argument. Every line and every scene draws a million opinions. Often the great original script that attracted everyone to the project is re-written so many times on the demands of no-talent executives, it becomes the pure shit you see on the screen.
I know that has happened in a number of movies.
Everyone in Hollywood "knows" how to fix the script (usually not broken to begin with) and they rip it to shreds until it is garbage and the final product is lame and makes no sense.
You never see a masterpiece oil painting that was painted by a committee of no-talent assholes.
saw the first two, will see the last two, thanks for the info
Have you seen The White Ribbon?
Sigh. Have been trying to get to White Ribbon for awhile. Hopefully next weekend. Hope you enjoy Inheritance and After the Wedding-subtle but powerful flicks.
The only good parts are in the trailers because those are the ONLY good parts.
