I just want to say that I hate you all
« on: May 03, 2018, 11:32:08 AM »
I haven't seen Infinity War yet.  Set to see it Sunday afternoon.  It kills me that I can't go into the Marvel thread, as I see that there has been constant posting there since the release.  SO tempted to click.  But I won't.  I'm just really jealous of all of you that have seen it already.

But what really pisses me off is that you can't even avoid spoilers in just everyday life.  I'm doing my best to avoid them.  But even having Yahoo's front page open up the other day when I went to my email, I had something spoiled about a certain character that is in the movie that I never would have guessed would have been in it.  No, I didn't mess up and click an article I shouldn't have.  It was right there on the Yahoo front page.  People are genuinely inconsiderate sometimes.  Makes me mad.  So now, I am avoiding pretty much everywhere on the Internet other than here and stuff that I need for work.

Sorry to hear that bosk. One of my friends hasn't been able to catch it either and even after saying he hadn't seen it yet, someone at his job went ahead and told him the ending right there. Hope you can avoid all other spoilers til Sunday. The whole movie is basically spoiler after spoiler.

I'll be seeing it for the second time on Friday  :biggrin:

Yeah, I'm glad that one spoiler that I got isn't really that big a deal in the grand scheme of things.  Thankfully, nothing major has been spoiled.  So far... 

I'm actually really nervous about this weekend.  I have a boy scout campout with my sons this weekend (they have both seen it; they really wanted to last weekend, so my wife and I let them go Saturday night).  And I know a lot of the boys there will have seen it and may want to talk about it.  I have already had visions about being hauled off to jail for throttling some poor kid for spoiling the movie.  :lol

Yeah, I've been dodging posts in twitter and facebook and thankfully no one at work has dropped any spoilers. My girlfriend is coming back from the US on Monday and we'll probably catch the movie next Friday, so one more week of avoiding shit on the internet. I managed to do it with star wars, I can get it done with this one too.

Thankfully, I avoid Twitter and Facebook anyway for completely unrelated reasons.  :lol

I waited until The Last Jedi came out to home video before watching it.  I avoided the SW thread here and only saved certain articles on FB to read for after I saw it.  But eventually, article headlines started spoiling it by including things like "Luke's death" or "Yoda's appearance."  That pissed me off.  Have some respect for readers and don't include spoilers in the headline.

Really though, I knew certain things like that, but didn't know how they happened or why they happened, so it didn't really spoil the experience.

I mean, in general, I agree, but how long do you expect all information to be kept secret? You're talking about three months. That's a good long while. A week or two is very different than three months.

Yeah, I tend to agree as well.  I think that that kind of info should be kept out of headlines and such during the better part of a movie's theatrical run.  But once the film has been out in theaters for awhile, and its theatrical run is winding down, I think it's reasonable to assume that most people who want to see it and wanted to be spoiler free have actually seen it.

Game of Thrones Spoiler Below!!!






I watch GOT the day after it airs because I always fall asleep trying to watch it that late at night. The following afternoon I had Rhamsey Bolton's death spoiled for me on Linked In of all places. I'm just scrolling through the feed and next thing you know, there's the fucker's face with a headline saying something like "Game of Thrones Character Talks About His Character's Gory Death". I cursed the woman out who posted it, going on and on about how Linked In of all places should be safe from these kinds of posts. Her response to me was something along the lines of "Hi Brian. Linked In is for professionals to come together and communicate. Talking about television shows is common practice in a professional work environment and is therefore okay to do here".

Bitch.

I've seen it twice; jingle.son 3 times.  I'm tempted to take in a Tuesday night viewing in a couple of weeks - it's that freakin good.  I have a pretty good guess as to who you got spoiled about - and that's a bit of a drag.  It certainly wasn't integral to the story, but pretty wow-worthy none-the-less ... at least for that scene.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

From what you are describing, I think you are probably correct.  I don't know any of the details or context whatsoever.  But the headline said that character was in it, and that alone was unexpected.
