So yeah, I have to admit, the second the trailer started I got a sense of anti climax. It's only on repeat viewings that I started to realise how beautiful it is, and what a smart decision the tone of it was.

I definitely want to avoid anything like that happening again, so yeah i'll be avoiding all 'descriptions', fake or not, of any trailers or scenes from the movie.

I think you're taking the right approach, and i'm gonna try and do the same from now on. Just dipping your feet into the water, not taking a swim in the ocean and getting lost at sea
Yeah, I definitely stop reading posts the second I feel a specific detail coming on. It works most of the time but every now and then I get an unfortunately nugget.
