Spoiler Management [In reply to] Can't Post

This is my first post and this is most certainly not the best kind of discussion for me to get embroiled in so early but I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by the volume of discussion on this site and this particular issue is something I think is important.

I'm a Tolkien fan so I've read the books and I know what's what (notwithstanding Peter Jackson's frequent deviations from 'canon', which may well result in changes to the exact timing and circumstances of the death of certain characters); I'm also a spoiler whore so it doesn't bother me who says what about the third film. I do, however, appreciate that some (most?) people who pay twelve or fifteen quid for a cinema ticket want to experience the films the way the director intended them to, surprises and twists intact, but, as fans, also want to be involved in discussions about them. I also appreciate that it's pretty difficult to censure discussion about a book that was published three quarters of a century ago.

Of those contrasting opinions, I think it's surely the best policy to at least try to protect the experience of these films, for which most members here would profess affection, for those who don't know how things turn out in the end. That's just basic decency, isn't it? 'There and Back Again' is the last chance some people will get to see anything like this for the first time. IMHO, that opportunity shouldn't be spoiled for them.
