I'm still not done talking about New Moon - definitely not! (You can read my outlet about Bella and TayTay) But now I'd like to talk about my Spoiler free experience and why I was so damn glad I had the strength to do it - all the way!
I do love all your spoiler bunnies with all I have, so don't run away! Maybe you find it also interesting what I have to say ? :)
See, I think it's different seeing spoilers from a movie when you are not head over heels about the story and when you don't know the book behind the movie by heart. I mean we all read the Twilight books probably more than once. I stopped counting after the 5th time - Yes I read all of them 5 times, New Moon even more often. Let's take Avatar for instance : Here I watch the trailer without thinking about staying spoiler free. Why? Because I don't know the whole story behind and I won't compare anything with my knowledge of the book behind (Is there a book behind, I guess not..). Apart from that I won't probably see this movie as often as I saw Twilight and will see the other Twilight movies...
Wooohoo anyway! My point is: when I watch a trailer from a Twilight movie I instantly compare it to what I know from the book. Which scene is that? Is it the meadow scene? Is it this one, or that one?
Now I come to the most important thing ever: The trailer most of the times fools you!! They are mostly done when the movie is not finally cut and ready, so they take what they have and put together a trailer or a teaser. This bothers me most!
1) Twilight trailer - The scene with Emmet saying "She's not one of us" . Where the heck is it in the movie? Yes, this scene didn't make it in the movie. Emmet was banned in the Deleted scenes..
2) New Moon trailer: The scene with Bella facing Laurent - running away and screaming "Jake - Run!" Completely out of the context right? Two scenes mixed together to make a decent trailer. I.Don't.Like.This!
Second thing: The intonations and the pauses in the dialogues. Here we have to same problem, scenes are taking without knowing if those are the final scenes in the movie.
1) Twilight Trailer: "What if I'm not the hero.....(dramatic pause!!!!) What if I'm the bad guy?" You know, I've seen this Trailer a million times and this two sentences are burned into my brain - with the dramatic pause. But in the movie it comes out differently, no pause.
2) New Moon trailer: The Birthday party scene : "It's time it's time.... and there is a cake too!" Where is the cake in the movie? Yes it's there on the table but Alice doesn't mention it.
Does that seem fussy? Yes maybe but it bothers me , a lot! It really does!
Next thing are all the pictures which are floating around in the internet. I remember when they filmed the Reunion Scene in Italy and people afterwards put the pictures together. Awww , too fucking much for me!
Don't even mention the pictures from the set: Which scene are they filming there - And damn it I hope they get it right!!
Don't care - I trust them! Seeing set pictures might confuse you and again: I.Don't.Want.This!!!
Those are all examples why I personally like it better staying Spoiler free and be a complete virgin when I see the holy movie the first time. I love it!
Actually, I doesn't bother me anymore, I got used to it. In the beginning it was hard to remain pure. When the first trailers came out it was hard staying in Twitter because nearly everyone tweeted about it. Now, I don't freaking care anymore!
Same for blogs with spoilers, I know that there are a some blogs which often post spoilers and I just visits them when I'm sure it's a spoiler free post.
You know what helps? The Google Reader! The blogger Dashboard is shit for us Spoiler Purists because it always shows a thumbnail of the pictures inside - too risky! The Google Reader is much better, you just see the titles of the blogs you follow and most of the times you get already from the title if it's a spoiler post or not.
Best thing ever are the blogs which love us Spoiler Denier so much that they put a Spoiler warning in the title of each post and use the "read more" function so that we don't accidentally see things we don't want to see. One perfect example is The Danger Magnet! Wonderful, thank you Annie from the bottom of my heart for doing this!
See? We can exist side by side.
How was it in the end for me?
Well, I saw one New Moon trailer in the beginning, which was before I announced my Spoiler Purist live. ( I wish I wouldn't have seen it either, but anyhoodle) The others I didn't see and really, believe me when I'm saying I looooved seeing the movie completely free of expectations!
It was pure and it was epic!
And yes it is different, although you know the blot by heart but seeing it all put together in a movie is something else!
You might still say: But girl, once you saw the movie you will probably see it 100 times again. You are right, but all I have then in my mind is the movie - the pure movie, not any pictures from the set or weird trailer scenes. Just the epic purenes of a movie...
With that I want to ask you now:
How was it for you Spoiler Bunnys - did it bothered you in the end that you knew nearly the complete movie before? Or don't you care at all and enjoyed New Moon no matter what you knew before?
My Twipuirist girlies: How was your first impression when you saw the movie the very first time without knowing anything? Was it worth it?
One more question: Who is going Eclipse Pure with me and my girlies?
And for all of us I made Buttons some time ago to grab and put them on the sidebar, you can find them all on my Twispired Blog Design site!
Go there and grab them, there are different ones, hope you like them!
