Spoiling your self or not.
« on: February 04, 2008, 09:10:26 AM »
A friend of mine is also a big movie fan, and he is so disiplined that he can resist himself from watching any form of promotion for a movie, before it comes out.

There is nothing he has seen, before he goes to the theater. A trailer or pictures or anything.
This way the movie experience is totaly new.

Everthing you see is new, and thus the experience is, he says, better or more overwhelming.
He did this with Inland Empire for example (Lynch fan).

Being an M. Night fan, I want to try and do this with the happening, but since I'm already looking for the trailer on the internet every day, I can't imagine being able to do such a thing.

Is there someone here who has done this before?, or after reading this says.. yeah!.. I want to try that for a change!

I think Dr Malcom Crowe and I, Mr_Glass.1, are trying it, but my will is faltering.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

Yea, I have the same feelings as your friend.

I am trying this "don't watch the trailers" idea for this first time on The Happening and The Dark Knight.

So far with The Dark Knight, I have managed to go almost 2 months now without being tempted. And after the whole Heath Ledger tragedy, it's been a little more difficult, but I know it will pay off in the end.

Yeah, I think this is also Mr. Glass' first attempt at something like this.

Of course I seen movies without seeing the trailers before, but those are usually small movies, or movies I'm not terribly excited about.  ;)

Ok. I'm committing myself to not seeing the trailer too.

This is going to be hard. :P

Especially since the teaser will be hitting any moment now... plus I think I might have found it.

What's your issue Dr Malcom Crowe, my first attempt at not watching the preview for a big movie and your finding the trailer for it.  Come on.   ;D

I had a question, I had a friend tell me this.  If I've already read script reviews, know the story, and have even read a review of the first few scenes, how is it going to spoil the movie by watching a trailer.
