Hell, the element of surprise is LONG gone.
Yeah, I gave up on the element of surprise or shocking twists or spoilers years ago. They're *impossible* to keep secret in the Age of Information. Instead, what I look for in a movie is acting and visuals and action that is good enough to make we want to see a movie not just once, but many times over. An M. Night style "SURPRISE TWIST!!! " movie works exactly once. Or twice: the second time to run back through it to see how many plotholes are actually littered all through the movie to prove that the "surprise twist!!!" doesn't really work at all.
