My opinion or take on movie trailers and how they can reduce the impact of the movie.

I first saw Platoon alone as a sneak preview at one of the last large screens, the Paris Movie Theater, in Boston. My wife was on a business trip so I decided to see the movie by myself on the big screen. I remember getting in a long line and waiting for the line to start moving. I noticed also some bearded men at the front entrance of the theater with clip boards talking to people. I was very suspicious and almost left because I didn’t want to part of any survey. The line suddenly started to move however and I paid and watched the movie without talking to the breaded men with clip boards.

At the end of the movie as the actor credits started to role the faces of each of the men in the platoon faded in and out. I realized they had all died in the movie. I suddenly felt very sad and started to cry. Yes, I had lost two friends in that war, but had never cried about it. I couldn’t stop balling and was embarrassed. Nobody left the theater during the credits. The film finally ended, the lights came up and people started to leave. I decided to wait a bit to let the people leave and stop crying. I was slightly annoyed that many men were still sitting in my row and in front of me. I finally stood up and turned to leave and looked behind me to see all these men still sitting and all balling.

I now knew that the people with the clip boards were there to help these men deal with it.

I told my wife about this experience and that we had to see this movie. However, we waited about a month later to see it. We also read many reviews and saw many clips about Platoon on TV during that month. We finally went and saw the movie together and at the start of the end credits every one got up and left.

No one was crying.

I never read reviews or watch previews on TV anymore.

Just tell me to go to the movie, that's all I need.
