Do you prefer to know little about what you are about to read or watch?

    Ah, but that can backfire on you. Here's an example. :watermelon:

    I'm with a lot of people here. When Heart shaped Box came out I read the flyleaf before I was convinced, but I wanted 20th Century Ghosts and Horns without much pre information. All SK books just get bought. Most other authors need a synopsis. With movies it's simply a question of if I'm interested (and if I can persuade hubby I'm right). TV is pretty much the same.

    I also don't like spoilers. Idk about everyone else but i get really exctied before i start a book or movie i havent read/seen yet & the less ik about it the better.

    A trailer can whet your appetite or get you all hot & bothered for nothing.
    Or just mislead you.

    Take a bow: 28 Days Later/28 Weeks Later, Inglorious Basterds, Aliens
    Hang your head in shame: Prometheus, Reign of Fire.
    So glad I didn't miss you: As Good as it Gets.

    Books are different - I like to know something about what I'm about to read.
    Probably because I'm less adventurous in my choice of books :bashful:

    A good trailer can really make the movie experience better. I remember seeing the teaser for the Dark Knight and thinking how epic it was. The Social Network had a brilliant trailer as well.
