    I Hate That.

    Even after I interupt my wife and tell her flat out I do not want to hear anything she continues on. Then when I am all "What the hell?!" she just says "sorry". *sigh*

    My friend wanted me to go to the mall with her.

    I told her "Wait, I'm watching The Sixth Sense, I'll go with you after." She said "Well, you know...." Well, if you've seen the movie, you know. That b****.

    There's this movie you are dying to see and you ask someone if they have seen it. What drives me crazy is when they tell you how it ends. I didn't ask them to give away the plot. I just wanted to know if the movie was worth my time. I wanted to see The Lake House, but...

    I Don't..

    I just don't care.. I normally don't go to the cinema anyway so I often ask people what a movie was about and how it ended..

    Sometimes.  But If It'...

    Sometimes.  But if it's a movie I don't really want to see anyway, it's okay.  Or one that I wouldn't see for a long time, it's okay 'cause by the time I see it I'll forget what the ending was supposed to be.

    Ruined A Movie Accidently

    I tend to get annoyed with people who give away endings, though with hollywood, its usually only one of two endings anyway. but a few years back I had a friend who would always ask me if I had seen a movie and what was it like etc. so one day he asks me about some movie...

    This Makes Me Nuts!

    why is it people feel the need to tell you how the movie ends?  what's wrong with them? my exhusband used to do this all the time despite me telling him, numerous times, how annoying it was and that i might as well not watch the movie knowing how it ended now ... he didn't...

    I have a very dear expressive friend who alludes to the plots of the movies we watch. She tells me what she thinks is going to happen, and most of the time, it does. Maybe it bothers me that she is right, or maybe because I didn't think of it first; it`s almost as bad as giving...

    I want to see the movie and unless I ask for it or they ask me, then I want to see the movie myself.

    This is a huge pet peeve of mine.

    Spoiling the ending or really anything critical about a movie annoys me to no end. I am something a movie junkie. I can’t think of very many things better than coming into a movie you know very little about and being swept away by a really well-told story for two hours. If...

    I hate hearing someone talk about the ending of a movie that I was just about to see at the theater. It's so irritating! It ruins the entire movie! The only time I actually want to know the ending of a movie is when it's a very, very sad or disappointing ending. For example, take...

    Its Funny

    I refused to see Titanic, someone ruined the ending for me. They told me the ship sank! I didn't like private ryan as much as I should have someone gave away the ending, told me the Nazi's lost the war! I am still waiting for James Bond to fail and the villion Blows up Big...

    Yeah Thanks Pant Load

    I can only wonder why a person gives away the ending ,of a new movie.  It's  just hit the theater and you missed the first week. You tell so & so you're  going to see it.  "Yeah, I thought it was sad when the dog died."   OH Geez! ...

    "Don't Tell Me the Ending!"

    Oh, I hate it when somebody does that!  Usually it's after you've already told them 10 times:  "Don't tell me the ending!" Sometimes you don't want to even bring up the subject of movies.  Invariably with certain people you're going to hear the end of...

    Booo @ Movie Commentators

    If I wanted to hear commentating, I'd watch the football or go to an event where it makes it just that extra bit exciting.  Movie directors hire musicians and carefully select music to create moods all throughout the film.. We don't need other people acting like Chihauhas...

    Not Only That But..

    I have several friends who will not watch a movie unless they know the entire stroyline before hand. Huh? You want to know what happens before you watch it? I don't get it. Why not fast forward and watch the movie backwards?

    It Makes Me Crazy!

    I just can't stand when people are so effing rude. You obviously got to enjoy the movie and be genuinely surprised or delighted, shocked or whatever by the ending. Why then do you think it's okay to take that away from me or others who have not yet seen the film but intend to?

    Need Earplugs

    What's the point in going to see a movie, if you know the ending? It's infruriating and I don't like it. I have to hide from my friends if a new movie has come out and they've seen it and have this compulsion to tell me what happens at the end. I need to get some earplugs...

    I Hate That

    I already knew Indiana Jones before I saw it and now I know about the movie "The Happening", so I guess I don't need to see that one now. Why do people do that? I always say "do you wanna know what happens or do you want to see that movie" before I talk about...

      I can usually guess what it will be anyway, foreshadowing is often overused...it's rare to be surprised. Still, I never want to be told how it will end, I would kill someone if they did...or spoil their favourite show depending on my mood. That might be the smallest...

    Seriously! Why do people do this?

    Is it because they just get overly excited that they've seen it already? I can't stand watching a movie and having a Chatty Cathy in the room either! Lol! Grrr XD
