I dunno what to vote. Maybe we should wait until the DVD, cos i really don't want to spoil anything for you or any other fans outside the UK.
Is that why i have to wash my face with a potato?

I voted DVD. The inconvience of keeping spoilers in one thread is nothing compared to the frustration of you non-UKers. You have all my sympathy. :D

I did, just 'cause I want to be able to talk about all the fantastic scenes there were :lol: I'm so very impatient.

But now that you mention it that wouldn't be fair on all the poor non-UK fans :wink:

I voted other, because I think spoilers are already sort-of creeping into conversations, sorry! I don't think you can stop it entirely. People are going to forget as they get more used to talking about the film.

Personally I think spoilers seem to be pretty easy to avoid - I mean, little things like a mention of a character or a place are creeping into conversation, but major plot points... well, why would you need to talk about them anywhere but the film thread? I think it works quite well as is, so long as people don't object to minor cryptic references, which I don't think can be stopped. :)

I think that the spoilers shouldn't be shouted around the forum, for the sake of the people who haven't had the opportunity to see it yet.

Its only fair!

I've voted 'until the DVD'.

I voted another month, and before you all lynch me, the reason is we are being joined by more and more newbies, who may not know the rules, and end up shouting out spoilers. however, I think if people did want to talk about the film they could do this;


+++++SPOILER++++++







so people would be able to avoid them if they hadn't seen the film. I can sympathise with those who have no way of seeing the film before the dvd release, and it would be fair on those guys who have to wait till october, if we waited till the dvd release

hmm, now im just contradicting myself. whoops. ignore me!

Being a non-UK fan, I obviously voted 'until the dvd'. :) It would be great if the film talk could stay in the film topic but I know it's going to be a bit difficult when newbies come and they don't know all the rules here...

Although I've been exposed to a couple of spoilers, I want to thank all of you who have seen the movie for not blurting out the major plots etc. :D

I voted 'until the DVD is released'. (And then, presuming it still hasn't been released in cinemas over here, I'll hide from the forum for a week cos it will take that long for the DVD to arrive and become part of my collection of Precious Things. :wink: )

I love the thoughtfulness of this forum. I love that there is a 'spoilers allowed' movie thread that I can give a wide berth to until I get to see the movie. Thank you, lovely people!
