Star Wars: Episode VII: Revenge Of The Septuagenarian

But does that apply to everything, including tv? As far as I know no one is ever making the effort to spoiler tag in the Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, etc threads around here. Not everyone has an East Coast HBO subscription, so we're all watching at different times.

Not that this is important, just something I've noticed on this board.

TV shows are a different animal from movies, most watch when they air or soon after on DVR or On Demand, you don't fall weeks behind generally. Not everyone can/will see a movie on opening weekend, especially this close to Christmas when folks have a lot going on. I think spoiler tags, especially for major stuff, are a reasonable expectation for a little while, maybe a week.

I don't know how to use the tags on mobile. That's the main reason I didn't use them.

Hell, you and I are the only ones watching the Blacklist, and I still occasionally post Spoiler tags. I just know that I never watch shit live, and I live in constant fear of being spoiled, so I use the tags as a golden rule type thing. .

I really didn't like the Starkiller Base segment at all, and it hurt TFA. The main story, as set up, is about finding Luke Skywalker, and then about 2/3rds of the way through that thread gets dropped and we now suddenly pay attention to Discount Death Star. And then once they blow up the thing, suddenly R2 activates and we're back on path to Luke. These are two different stories grafted together. And it complicates things unnecessarily!

In a wonderful bit of hubris, Abrams tries to refilm the trench run sequence again, and gets absolutely squashed in comparison to George and Marcia Lucas's formalism in ANH. Apparently making a crappy Wrath of Khan remake didn't slow down his affection for postmodern recycling.

The lightsaber battle in the snowy alder tree forest was beautiful. Staging the fight in a situation where trees would fall with every errant swipe was a good call.

But you're looking at it from an American perspective. There are plenty of people on this board who simply cannot watch the initial American broadcast, because they don't live in America. International lag times have shortened dramatically in order to combat piracy, but if I don't want the Game of Thrones finale spoiled for me before I can watch it in Australia, I don't go in the thread.

Likewise, I don't go into a specific movie's thread if I have yet to go to the cinema for it. That's just personal responsibility.

Appreciate that Ashley tags some posts, but I just see it as coddling if it's in a designated thread. It'd be a dick move to just drop in the ending of The Shield in a random thread, for example.

EDIT: Well, never mind. My point was that I thought posting in the spoiler tags protects people on mobile who may just have timeline open from being spoiled, but it looks like even on there the contents of a spoiler tag just show up as text. It's the same for iSpy.

In that case, at the very least, a good rule of thumb should be to post a few sentences of text before you post a spoiler, so it doesn't end up in the timeline.

I'm not really sure what I should say because I don't want to spoil it for anyone. But I was disappointed with the film because one of the most iconic characters of the Star Wars films gets killed in this one. For me its like killing Superman, Batman, James Bond, or Indiana Jones. You just don't do that.

For me this is how I rank the films:

01. Return Of The Jedi
02. A New Hope
03. Empire Strikes Back
04. The Force Awakens
05. Revenge Of The Sith
06. Attack Of The Clones
07. The Phantom Menace

Well that certainly doesn't spoil anything.

Well, there are a lot of Star Wars Characters that are regarded by millions of people as iconic. I never said which one. But if I have ruined the movie for you, I sincerely apologize.

My ranking would be based on nostalgia mostly. But I think it'd go:

Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
The Force Awakens
Revenge of the Sith
A New Hope
The Phantom Menace
Attack of the Clones

Sorry, but I won't apologize for stating that Return Of The Jedi is easily my favorite Star Wars movie as well as being my favorite movie of all time period!
