In as much as I have no power over the rules here, I would offer to the group at large that we use the gentlemen code of honor here and use spoiler tags for at least 2 or 3 weeks.

Or, if we can't help ourselves, then Endgame needs it's own thread with the title showing clearly that there are spoilers and open at your own risk.  This isn't a typical movie topic at this point.  We are a decade into a continuing story and unlike GRRM, the writers actually finished this.  We can be super cool with each other.

If I was in charge.

Agreed.  Even though I don't know what GRRM is.

The guy sitting behind us was having one hell of an experience. He threw out so many "Oh my God"s that I was genuinely concerned for him. Then he loud cried for the last 15 minutes without pause. He w

well done guys!  You had to pollute one of the few threads that is not stained with what ever political side you support.

IIRC there are usually single threads for individual movies and this was for the overall university :shrug:

This is where I assumed it would be heading by Friday.  Keeps this thread clean for MCU open discussions and not focused on Endgame.

I like this.  The new thread would be for the specific movie (Endgame, obviously) and could be filled with spoilers.  Then this one could have general talk about the movie.  

So for these movies, me and the fam usually go on like a Tuesday night because it's not as crowded.  But since it's over 3 hours long, even an early showing gets us home way past our elderly bed times.

Can we hold off on any spoilers or plot discussion until next week? #HasSundayTickets

I sincerely wish I could help you but, no.

Going tomorrow at 8 PM.  Won't have to worry about spoilers. Got our tickets the first hour they went on sale. Whole bunch of us going should be fun. Nothing to drink at least 2 hours before show time. No need to make a bathroom run.

This might be to much spoilers for some people so don't go if you want to be 100%

 

When to take a bathroom pee break during Avengers: Endgame

It's the longest MCU film yet, so if you don't plan ahead, these are the safest scenes to make a run for it (no plot spoilers!).

None. Apparently there is some audio at the very end though, but no video.

I knew I'd be disappointed about something Saturday.

I forgot:

In this thread, do we usually go "open spoilers" as soon as the movie's released? Or is there some lag time where people keep using spoiler tags and such?

Yes, give a lag for those who can't see it immediately please.

So, I'm walking through a restaurant at lunch today.  A kid (probably 16 - 18) runs in and yells "..." a spoiler that makes a ton of sense and I think it is too clever for him to just make up.  Made it to the last day without hearing anything, I wanted to go punch that kid in the throat.  May not be right, but I think it is too good.  Luckily that is the only thing he got out but it is probably the main point.

Anyway, happy watching to all.

I remember avoiding all news and internet leading up to The Force Awakens.  Was so proud of myself for not hearing any spoilers.  As we purchased our tickets in front of the movie theater, two guys walked out and one said, "I can't believe Kylo Ren was Han Solo's kid!"  And the other said, "I can't believe they killed Han Solo!"  I seriously wanted to sucker punch their dead grandmothers.

As soon as they went on sale a few weeks ago, I bought 4 tickets for me and my three kids for a 6pm show tonight. Last night as I’m driving my 14 year old daughter to soccer, she says “I found out today I have a jazz band concert tomorrow night at 7:30”

Her mom is taking her to band tonight while me and the boys see the show.

Whatever it takes.

Reminds me of an old Simpsons episode: huge line outside a theater for Empire Strikes Back, Homer walks out saying “I can’t believe Darth Vader is Luke’s dad!” and all the people in line want to kill him.

 

I try to always have earphones in now on my train rides to and from work if I wasn’t able to watch Game of Thrones the night before. Or the Walking Dead before it fell off a cliff... Inevitably a couple of people were on the train talking about how they couldn’t believe so and so died last night.

I say fake spoilers, but I try to make them so ridiculous that everyone knows they're fake.

I'm actively seeking out spoilers prior to our Friday afternoon reservations.  I always like to have a good preview of the major plot lines going in, as I'm pretty dense when it comes to following themes and plots and such, so appreciate having that background prior to seeing the movie.

Type exactly this into your post:

[spoiler]
Random movie spoilers ...
[/spoiler]

The bracketed text before and after the message are the spoiler tags. The board software renders it like so:

EDIT: True to form ... almost exactly 1/3 of the way through is again one of the sweet spots for a restroom break.
