When we go to the movies, we always wanted to know how the movie ended. If we give away the plot and the ending of the movie, we don’t have to go, and we could save a buck, but it contradicts the factor of the visuals effects, the story and the actor’s performance. If we read a book that turned into a movie, we don’t have to go to the movies. We are still missing the visual effects, the story (we already know the story) and the performance of the actor. If we know the ending of the movie, well it’s the ending of the movie. However, we missed the performance of the actor and the hard work of the production to make the book into a movie to come alive to the big screen.
The same thing in a book, if we know the killer who shot the victim; we don’t know the back story of why he did it. We always wanted to know the motive of the killing and the story behind it. Why skip to the end and not knowing the whole story?
If someone wanted to know the story of the movie, we could say one thing. “It’s epic.” Would they see on the big screen or watch it later when it comes out on DVD or VHS? We don’t know. It’s epic.
So why give the ending and spoil the movie by reading the synopsis on the IMDB, it does not give the visual aspect, it just words and sentence put together. We might as well read the book and when we read it, we can get the visual part and the ending too, because we have already seen the movie.
