King Kong: Spoiler alert

Do you know how King Kong ends? Spoiler alert: click here and find out.

Yes, that's a link to the 1933 version. But have no fear, you'll soon be able to save yourself sitting through the entire thing just to find out how it ends by going to Moviepooper -- a whole site full of spoiler alerts. You can already impress your friends around the water cooler by finding out how Serenity, Sin City, and The 40-Year-Old Virgin end without having to sit through them, and that can't be bad.

The site's creators describe it as "a resource to 'poop' or spoil the endings to classic, near-classic, recent and new movies." Why would you want to do that? There's a whole list of reasons, incuding the following:
  • Because sometimes, the surprise "spoiler" ending is the only reason you'd pay $8 to see what is otherwise a turkey of a film.
  • Because sometimes, you vaguely remember an old movie that had some sort of plot twist at the end of it, but can't remember what it was.
  • Because sometimes, you're not interested in seeing that movie everyone's talking about but are dying to know what the hubbub is about anyway...

    1. OK, here's a big spoiler for King Kong: Weta Digital is a shit hot FX house. I know this because I sat through a 90 minute movie and a 90 minute brag reel of over-produced CGI that had little, if any, relationship to the story.
