In today's age of social media and rapid Internet buzz, so much is made of not ruining a movie for those who have yet to see it.
But when it comes to some films, the giveaway is right in the title.
"The Shawshank Redemption"
Through the whole of "Shawshank," we root for Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) to be awarded the justice he so rightly deserves after being wrongfully incarcerated for the murder of his wife, and we are elated when it finally comes to him in the form of poo-filled escape.
We should have known all along things would work out for Andy. Redemption was always the film's destiny.
"The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford"
Not only is this title a mouthful, but it tells you exactly what's coming in the end in explicit detail.
Attach yourself to Brad Pitt all you want, but he's going to die in the end, and you already know who kills him.
Whether you read the title as a command or a descriptive name, the conclusion is the same: Willy is going to be free.
The title should have saved those millions of tears doubting children shed at the thought of Willy's eternal captivity, but it didn't.
