Imagine that. Better yet, imagine you're standing in line for The Sixth Sense and some guy comes walking out yelling, "I hated that movie. Hey everyone, Bruce Willis was a freaking { } the whole time! It's so stupid! Ha ha, I spoiled it for you!" Now for the last bit of make-believe, pretend that the screaming guy is also the editor AND publisher of a magazine called Creative Screenwriting. Unacceptable.
