Why did it take me so long to find out about MoviePooper.com? Another sterling entry in a field that includes Mr. Skin, the Whipping Scenes In Movies Database, and many more who enrich us all with their laser-like research. Movie Pooper's purview: spoiling the surprise endings of Hollywood movies—not just honest-to-goodness plot twists (Zardoz, Escape From the Planet of the Apes), but some picks that make you go hmm. (Is there really a last-reel shocker in Working Girl? How can A Cinderella Story have a surprise ending?)
This weekend's feature: The final twist in the M. Night Shyamalan joint The Village. (Which seems like kind of a letdown in a movie that features our two sickliest-looking actors; I was hoping the twist would be that either Joaquin Phoenix or Adrien Brody turned out to be the ghost of Monty Clift.) Spoiler alert, obviously.
