    Spoiler alert! If someone tells you how a movie ends, do you still want to see it?

    The majority of the time I still want to see it...but I must punch that person who spoiled it later. Nothing worse than that.

    Yes. I'd still want to see the movie because there's so much other things to see than an ending.

    It depends on the type of movie it is. If it's some typical special effects action movie or if it is a thriller with a nice twist. It will bother me either way because all I'll be doing is thinking of the ending the whole time. I'd probably still watch the action flick though.

    I would see it, but I wouldn't be able to enjoy as much.

    Absolutely, some movies people watch over and over again despite knowing almost every scene by heart.  Knowing the outcome of something doesn't necessarily detract from one's enjoyment of the actual event.

    weLL obviously because then I'll know that in this that movie won't end for sure.

    Yes, if it was a movie I really really wanted to see. I don't mind spoilers on movies I know I would never watch mind you....

    Yes, because its not the destination but the journey that matters.

    Yes I would still want to see it to form my own opinion on the movie

    If it is a movie with lots of twists and turn then I might not, part of the fun for those movies are trying to figure it out before the end. Most other movies I would still watch.

    No, no and no. If I'm in the mood to watch a movie and tell me the end will not see it and still feel very angry that the person said.

    Yes, knowing how it ends wouldn't spoil the story of how we got to that ending

    Yes, movies are a distraction... for me at least. If the 2 hours of cinematic adventuring through the eyes of someone else are entertaining, Id gladly hear what happens in the last five minutes.

    yes. i like to know the end from the beginning. it doesn't detract from the suspense of how it unfolds for me and then i can be prepared for it. every once in a while i'm glad i didn't know the end. Like in sixth sense. That movie would have been ruined if i had known the end.

    Adventure Coloradposted 13 years ago

    Yes, most of the time.  If it was a movie I wasn't real interested in to begin with and find out the end was dissapointing, I might not see it.  Otherwise I will still watch it, there is a lot more to a movie than just the ending.

    I probably would, yes. I would not, however, enjoy it nearly as much. The only exception would be if the spoiler alert actually alerted me to how poor the film was and how farfetched the ending was, in which case I would thank the person who spoiled it and go see something else.

    Yes, unless it was a mystery in which case knowing the ending would spoil it for me. As I generally prefer to watch comedies and romances where happy endings are the norm, it usually doesn't matter if I know the ending.

    The best part of a movie (or book) is the anticipation of the ending, predicting what's going to happen and seeing if I'm right.  If someone tells me what happens, I really don't want to see the movie anymore.

    Sure.  I think the magic of the cinema is to take you into another world.  The ending is the death of that experience.  For me, the third act is the least enjoyable.  That's when it all crumbles.
