    I usually prefer not to know much before going in to see a flick, especially if its a comedy, trailers tend to highlight the best jokes in the trailers. But I do make an exception for the batman franchise, I want to know every damn thing about their production :D

    Ill view spoilers up till the last few months before release date, but for some like spiderman, I can't help myself. I will not go into a spoiler forum after the movie is released and before I have seen it.

    "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl": Barbossa shows up at the end of the movie, alive and well, to help Will Turner and his friends rescue Jack Sparrow, who got swallowed by a Kraken.

    "The Matrix Revolutions": at the end, Neo kills Smith and delets all the other agents, and the machnies cease the attack on Zion and make a truce with the humans

    "Batman Begins": at the end, James Gordon tells Batman that The joker has been running rampant, so Batman has to face him in the next movie. Henri Ducard is revelaed to be the REAL Ra's Al Ghul, and then gets killed when the Gotham Metrpolitan TRain crashes with him in it. Carmine Falcone gets gassed with Scarecrow's fear gas and goes catatonic.

    "Superman Returns": at the end, it's revealed that Jason is the son of Superman and Lois, and inherited all of his powers. Lex Luthor gets stranded on a deserted island with Kitty Kowalski, and Superman recovers from his kryptonite poisoning and goes back to fight crime.

    "X-Men: The Last Stand": at the end, Wolverine kills Phoenix/Jean Grey with his claws to prevent her from killing any more people. Magneto gets injected with the cure, but we found out that the cure is temporary and he, Rogue and Mystique will recover their powers later on. Rogue hooks up with Iceman after taking the cure, and we find out that Professor X survived and is in Muir Island with Moira MacTaggert.

    He's not really black. He's just a white preppie guy wearing a special kind of sun tan lotion.

    I don't mind spoilers unless it's something I generally want to be surprised by.

    Doesn't matter at all. The joy should be in the journey, not the destination.

    Most of the time I'm OK with spoilers.

    I was trying to keep the ending of Toy Story 3 a surprise, though, but had it spoiled for me in a review. Oh well!!

    Same here. When it comes to adaptations of things I'm already a fan of, books and comics in particular, I don't mind a few spoilers as they help me judge whether or not the film's worth spending money on. For original movies like The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, I really hate being told the ending. Being told the basic plot is fine, but for God's sake don't go telling me that Bruce Willis was dead throughout the entire damn movie! That just pisses me off.

    It depends.For example,I was pretty jaded at the thought of a new Batman movie,so I read the leaked script of Batman Begins and it was so exceptional,it made me even more excited to see it.The film actually exceeded the script,so I didn't feel spoiled at all.

    Actually, that was "Dead Man's Chest", not "Curse Of The Black Pearl".

    I generally don't go out of my way to track down spoilers but at the same time I'd say that if a movie is good then no spoiler will be able to change that. So when someone says to me that a movie being spoiled ruined the film for them I just shrug and say that the movie couldn't have been all that good in the first place.

    If it's spoiling something I couldn't care less about then whatever. For instance, I've quite happily let people spoil both Wolverine films just because I knew I didn't care enough to give them my money...

    BUT.

    A couple years ago, on these very forums, a complete ****ing moron spoiled something MASSIVE about season 1 of Game of Thrones.
    If you watch the show, you'll know what I'm talking about. Yeah, THAT thing. He blurted it out, without spoiler tags, in the Boardwalk Empire thread too of all places...

    Guhhhh, just thinking about it makes me want to smack him again...

    Depends on the film.

    If it's like for a tentpole like..Iron Man 3 or whatever, it doesn't matter. Whatever.

    But if it's a movie like..Fight Club or The Departed, where the narrative is more impactful (no offense to tentpoles) then yes, no spoilers.
