Star Wars doesn't appear in the list, which makes the post title... odd.

Stretching a 360p youtube video over the width of that page makes me sad.

Not as sad as the ending of Up, obviously.

> Not as sad as the ending of Up, obviously.

I thought it was kind of lame to use the piano music from Up to make the sloppy montage have some presumption of emotionality.

In fact, I'll just link the theme from Up as a cleanser.

I don't see how that's a spoiler for The Third Man, the scene shown is even on the cover of the DVD. And showing Jesse James getting shot by Robert Ford isn't a spoiler, it's already in the title of the damn movie.

Two comments:

A lot of films seem to end with violent death.

How does YouTube deem a nipple more worthy of censorship that all of the violence in this video?

The violence is faked. And you don't want to see a faked nipple, believe me.

Surprisingly; this actually doesn't spoil anything. Too much cross-cutting for anything to make sense, unless you've already seen the movie.

The DVD cover of The Happiness of the Katakuris not only spoils a fairly surprising scene in the movie (the back cover, anyway), it (and the pull quotes on it) provide the viewer with a pretty wildly wrong idea of what the movie is actually about, or what it's like.

I mean the spoiler in question isn't a plot twist or anything but it's one of those things which is more enjoyable if you don't know it's coming.

Yeah, I'm not getting the reason for the inclusion of some of these. (Gone with the Wind--THE SOUTH LOSES.)

You guys, I've tried asking nicely with regard to how it got burned, but I have received exactly zero responses. I'm going to have to ask everyone to please step away from their bikes, or else I am going to have to put on the bear suit again. And so I ask just a few more times: how did it get burned? How did it get burned? How did it get burned?

I expect a timely answer to this query. I just hope for everyone's sake that no one would stoop so low as to bring bees into this.

How'd it get burned?

Let me answer in verse, if I may:

You made it through the tunnel
Then you grabbed that fire on the wall
You jumped up above him
Then you burned the rope and saved us all

Or is this about that [HORRIBLE MOVIE TITLE REDACTED] thing again? Bees

Re: FW: How'd it get burned?

Dear F. MONSTER,

Thank you for your prompt reply. Unfortunately I must again stress the importance of knowing how it got burned, and it does not appear that this information is forthcoming from your organization. Additionally, I must express my deep dissatisfaction with regard to this latest development, i.e. the bees, and at this moment would like to notify you, under the advisement of legal counsel, that they are in my eyes.

Regards,

You know, out of context, these aren't so much spoilers as just scenes of people we don't know having bad things happen to them. The creator should have at least attached the names of the movies to the scenes, but even then, without knowing who the characters are or having any emotional investment in them, I'm not really feeling spoiled at all.

Also, double plus agree with the assessment of Rope. I mean, you know who did it in the first thirty seconds of the movie. That's kind of the point, in fact. Is the spoiler that Jimmy Stewart is sad about it? Because that could be any Jimmy Stewart movie.

I was hoping this would be someone with a sweet hi-top fade and a bunch of spoilers shaved in, somewhere between this and this.

Yet, essentially that is how the search for God ends in Star Trek V.
