New Facebook Page Set Up To Help You Spoil Movies For Your “Friends”, Already Doing It Wrong

The whole point of Facebook page I Spoiled Your Movie Ha Ha is to provide captioned images you can ‘like’ or post on your timeline, thereby ruining plot twists and reveals for your friends.

Seems a little mean spirited, maybe? Or is it just public service, giving you nice pictures to spoil movies with, something better than your normal banal bus stop jabber?

The page was set up less than a day ago. Michael Moran pointed me to it pretty quickly, which did make me suspicious – but he’s actually rather anti-spoiler. Much more than me, that’s for sure. If the two of us are sharing spoilers, the flow is always in the one direction, Moran to Connelly.

It’s arguable that this Facebook page is very naughty indeed, and that all right minded people will stay well clear. It’s certain that nobody nice will be using their images as suggested.

But I think there’s another problem.

Because unfortunately, the quality of their spoilers just isn’t very good.

There are four so far. District 9 seems like a rather random selection, The Great Gatsby is relatively pointless because the book is so very well known, and the Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness spoilers land somewhere between missing the point and underselling the surprise.

Here comes the Iron Man 3 spoiler now. As blunt as this is, it’s still a weapon and it does still bludgeon some surprise out of the film.

So don’t read on unless you’ve already seen it. Which I’m pretty darn sure almost all of you have.

Really, this isn’t the way to spoil these movies. With Trek we’d want a reference to John Harrison’s alias, and for Iron Man 3… something I’m not going to mention even here. But I’m sure you know what I mean.

So, either way, pro- or anti-spoiler, I don’t think I Spoiled Your Movie Ha Ha is going to win many fans.

I wonder if some better spoilers could help this take off, though? Is the EasySpoilTM mechanic going to make a sport out of peeing in the pool? Are there enough cold hearted bastards using Facebook?

Or are they all just lurking around in our forums?
