I kinda miss this about movies! Before the internet, you would just go and see a movie, regardless of what you heard about it. No twitter, no rotten tomatoes, no illegal streaming, blogs, etc. You just saw the trailer maybe once or twice on tv, saw that Bruce Willis was in it or whoever, and went out and watched that joint.
I can vividly remember not knowing that Dusk Til Dawn was a vampire flick. Just saw that Clooney was in it and a friend if a friend told me it was about bank robbers
. Made it sooo much more dope when vamps started rollin up on the scene. I remember not knowing the secret to 6th sense before I watched it. I remember not knowing what happens to Samuel L in Deep Blue Sea before I watched it.
A movie like The Empire Strikes back might not even work nowadays. You would already know that Vader was his damn father well before you went to see it! "Wanna go see this star wars movie this weekend? Nah imma just download it on frostwire. RT gave it a 30% anyways. It's redbox-able at best."
