Review Spoilers! Grrrr.... (no spoilers here tho)

I was reading NewScientist and they had a review of the new movie Moon by David Bowie's son. Well since it was an interesting place to see a review I read it. They gave away the shock ending! I'm pretty sure they did.

I left a comment, a simple: "Gee hope you didn't give away the surprise ending there", and it was deleted!

And then when you read the comments you see a few have been erased for "violating site terms" or whatever. Probably the same reason, I mean what else are you going to comment? Commies should have colonized the moon??

It made me appreciate this forum, where if people pull boners like that they can take the heat - that they earned. But I guess when it comes to science fiction, so many people here really know their donuts.

So do yourself a favor and if you read any review of Moon, read Roger Ebert's, I did and he doesn't give anything away. He knows how to talk about a movie without ruining it for the rest of us. It looks like it's worth watching.

When will reviewers and trailer-makers get the !@#$% over themselves and let people experience the project the way it was intended! Learn how to review without giving away the farm!!!

From now on I'm going to stick to the same reliable people. Any suggestions?

I always read Jammer after watching a sci fi show, that guy is fantastic.

Most of those reviewers are dicks that deserve to be flogged and wedgied.

And have their internets taken away. And maybe run over. Just for good measure. Spoil a movie... get spoiled.

Reminds me of one of those entertainment news tv shows I saw years ago.

If you have seen the movie you know how that one line ruins a good part of the movie.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
