That time has come around again when I get to talk about what you are talking about on the Kermode Uncut blog, which this week includes the delights of the cinemas of your childhood and the terrors of Buried, Devil and Eat Pray Love (Vomit).

    To answer the original question: Plot spoilers, or at least discussions that hint at spoilers, should be immediately OK after release on a BLOG site - a blog is primarily for discussing films that people should have already seen (if they want to discuss them). The review program on 5 Live is the reference for people who have not seen a film yet - and one of the things I use to decide (provided its Kermode and not the other threesome - no offense guys). I can't think of anything more irritating than a film blog that was banned from discussing the details of films because nosey b***ards want to tell you how to run your site. It's like trying to have a conversation with someone about a film both of you love then someone butting in to stop you making a point because THEY HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET! I mean, he tells you what films he's talking about in the video titles - so don't hit the link. I think people secretly want to have it spoiled for them so they can be angry and indignant about something (because most mainstream multiplex films leave little else to be really passionate about). Eat, Pray, Love, Complain.

    I always remember when Sean Hughes was covering Jonathan Ross's show a few years ago and gave away the twist in Sixth Sense live on radio! The fils had just been released and I was about to see it, so was a bit gutted - but at the same time thought it was funny! To be fair it actually made the film more interesting knowing the end and did open up quite a few plot holes too...

    Tom Brazelton of www.theaterhopper.com sells a T-shirt called Spoilers (and another called Spoilers 2) which is a list of some of the best examples of these.
    Whenever I wear it I get people stopping me and playing 'spot the movie'!

    Dr K

    A "plot spoiler" is called a "plot spoiler" for a reason. I'm a bit disappointed that you seem to think that plot spoilers have a shelf life. They don't.

    Surely the point at which it becomes acceptable to reveal a plot spoiler is "as soon as you've watched it." Especially when it's poor stuff like Sixth Sense, where the twist only works because the film ignores its own rules.

    John Hurt dies surprisingly early from a gastro-intestinal complication

    The film ends abruptly because the Police storm the beach and arrest the actors for murder

    I accidentally spoiled the movie for Lisa by telling her that Achilles gets shot in the heel and dies. Silly me, I didn't realise that I still had to keep that fact secret after thousands of years! Needless to say, I didn't tell her that the giant horse was actually full of soldiers.

    LOVELY!
    WELL DONE BATHANNAH!

    ALl these people listing spoilers are hilarious... except for the fact I don't know which films you're talking about! Now I'll sit down to a cinematic classic and, as the end credits roll, realise that actually I deep down knew the twist, and it had been stored by my subconcious to get revenge on my concious self for being the favourite.

    Congratulations chaps. You've fueled the war taking place in my all ready fragile psyche...
