Moderators I have no idea if this belongs in the TV or Movies section so I apologize in advance. This is my first rant, but boy am I miffed. Last night I was watching one of my favorite TV shows,CSI, and they started talking about the second movie in my Netflix cue, Strangers on a Train. I plugged my ears and turned away but I still think I got a major plotline handed to me. They also showed a small clip from whatI believe to be the end of the movie. I really hate that.

Gabrielle, it's too bad you got spoiled because one of the greatest things about Hitch is his element for surprise and keeping the viewer in suspense. Rest assured though, you will still enjoy this picture. Now my sister-in-law still has never seen Psycho nor knows anything about the plot. Oh, to be in that situation!

Tommy you were so right I loved the movie and though the spoilers were there it didn't take away from the cleverness of the flick.

Hey Don at least it wasn't the remake with with Anne Hesh. I cheered when she got it.

Well, it's not as if they spoiled a movie that's currently in theaters.

Are you serious? Ok, i'm going to assume you are since you typed it. How would you like it if you went to rent a movie and the clerk behind the desk belched out "oh I love that movie especially when they...." It's the same thing. And By the way unless this movie was rereleased(possible) I couldn't have seen it in the theater if I wanted to. This movie came out before my mother was even born. The point is I rented it from Netflix because I wanted to see it in "my theater." I had no clue what the plot was other then that it was a Hitchcock Classic and that it was a thriller. But before I could plug my ears, I not only new the plot but I knew one of the twists.

That would suck, but it is in no way the "same thing".
Do TV writers really need to worry that someone out there hasn't seen a 52-year-old film they've referenced?

Your point is well made Joel but I think you missunderstood whatI was saying. My point wasn't that they couldn't or shouldn't it was that i hated the fact that I was given a major plot point to a movie that I wanted to see. And that as you said earlier it sucked.
They said that two strangers met on a train and agreed to kill a person in either of there lives. They then explained that one of the people commited the murder but the other one didnt or something along those lines. Main plot point in my book. And at the end of the show they showed a scene from the movie with one of the carecters dieng.I'll give you another example. Say you are watching a TV show and someone on that show starts talking about Ciitizen Kane
yeah and everyone knows that Rosebud was his sled!Im new to the clasics I honestly didn't know untile i started watching the movie. I guessed pretty darned quick but it was still left up to me.
