I totally get what you are saying +Joseph Hughes
. The last movie I remember getting to see without knowing anything about it that really blew my mind was the first Matrix.
All the trailers showed barely anything and about the only words I remember from them was the quote from Morpheus about how no one can be told what the Matrix is, they have to see it.
That was so awesome! And you can never go back and see it that way again. I think that adds something so unique and priceless to movies like that. You would think more directors and writers would try for that same effect today.
