Do u Regret being Fully Spoiled?

I just wanted to ask all of us here who have spoiled themselves rotten these past few years and now we practically know every single scene and detail....do you regret it?

I definately do not. I think being spoiled is soo much fun. It's like hunting for clues to a huge case. I think its great. I don't think the movie is ruined for me - or the experience. I never like surprises - so spoiling is right up my alley.

Let me know what you think

I don't regret it. I thought I would but I don't really. This is the last time we'll get to be excited over every little picture released or bit of leaked info for a Star Wars movie. I've had a lot of fun with it.

I only regret knowing Aayla dies, I was hoping I could keep myself delusional.

I pretty much know all the events, but I don't know the specific details.

The Official Pictures thread has also been getting spoiler specific lately, so I've done going there.

I regret it. I know there won't be much shock value to it when you already know who dies and who-kills-who.

Same here. Sitting in the theater May 19, I know I'm going to hate myself.

i haven't seen it on the big screen yet, so i consider my appetite to have been whetted. sure i've seen spoilers in the form of small images and text, but it also makes the craving to see the movie in all its glory that much greater.

i'm fine with being spoiled because usually i don't want to be spoiled because it will take away from some of the fun of watching the movie, but since this is star wars i don't think is any way the fun level of watching it can be decreased for myself no matter what i know.

Back in the days i thought supershaddow was true *slaps himself*, i read through the plot summary and afterwards i hated myself, so i was happy when i learnt it wasnt right.

But i dont mind the spoilers too much, but i try to limit the ammount i get.

Also, its still good to watch the other films again even when you know what happens, so this is the same idea, just without seeing it yet.


IM NOT GOING TO BE ON THE FORUMS VERY OFTEN NOW! I MIGHT BE ON TIME TO TIME, BUT IVE BASICLY GIVEN UP THE FORUMS NOW!!!!

Nope, no regret at all. No matter how spoiled I get, nothing can compare to the experience of seeing it on the screen, so it's all good.

No, I do wonder if I would enjoy it more if i didn't know.
But I'm not a person who gets spoiled by knowing. If something is good it's good whether I knew about it ahead of time or now.

Also it's not like there's a ESB, Usual Suspects or Sixth Sense type suprise ending. We all know what's finally going to happen.
I think suprise endings spoiled suck but other wise it's all good.

But by being spoiled and reading stuff that's in the spoiler tags, then if there was a magor surprise ending, then wouldnt it be annoying.

That's why i limit my spoiling.

Nah. I'm still going to enjoy seeing it all happen...

I only spoiled myself in fear of a major trainwreck in the plot. And sitting in the theater going "NOOOOO! God it was the worst one!"

It looks like it will be one of the best.

My husband has not been spoiled at all - I accidently slipped when I told him that it got a PG13 because of Anakin's bad wounds and the kids being killed

He got mad "WHAT KIDS BEING KILLED???"

I was like crap - and quickly said that well...if you think about it isn't it a given that all Jedi except Obi and Yoda die? So don't you think they'd show some of that?

So - it will be interesting to see my take on the movie vs his take


I think he'll actually be shocked at the Mace and Sidious fight and of course can you imagine the shock of seeing Padme's fate?

*treads around carefully in spoilers forum*

ive only come in here 3 times over the last year or so, basically to get a little info on trailers and the clone wars series... everything else I am perfectly oblivious to I dont read most of the posts here and wont be back here until after May 19

I hated it when AOTC held no surprises for me after allowing myself to know everything about the movie... I promised to be spoiler free for the last SW movie ever, and I have nearly done it ... gotta say it was damn hard

Probably the most spoiling I've done is know that the big GG uses four sabers, and Obi is forced to erm. deal with unruly clones.





That's the last time I buy anything just because it's furry!

I think its fun seeing how they do it. Like we all know that Anikan is going to become Vader, so its fun imagining and then seeing how they do it.

Like I know some of who's gonna die by who and its fun to think how they do it and then see if you are right or wrong.

But I still say that I dont like knowing all the spoilers - but some are fine.

I think there should be a big spoiler and little spoiler tags. Make them different or something so that people know what they are in for rather than all spoilers being the same until you read them.

I knew what was going to happen anyways, so I haven't spoiled myself too much I don't think. I don't regret it, but I might once the movie comes out.

Well, I don't know a huge ammount about the movie. Except for the trailers, I havn't looked a whole lot into, I saw a few shots of it, and thats been about it. Sometimes I get disapointed in movies when I know the outcome... and I love surprises. So yeah. I'll just wait and see.

I didn't intend to spoil the film for myself, and I went a while before giving and checking the spoilers out then reading the novel. I don't regret it, nothing will compare to seeing it in action.
