Spoiler Alert: 9 Movies with Shameless Last-Minute Deaths

One Day, the Anne Hathaway/Jim Sturgess will-they-or-won’t-they think piece, hit theaters this weekend. While it made a respectable showing at the box office, it bombed with the critics. Besides looking like found footage from Reality Bites, I think the movie’s surprise sad ending might have been the real nail in the coffin (spoiler alert: pun intended).

But then came this Sundance winner Like Crazy, which stars Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones as college seniors who fall in love instantly but can’t be together because of post-grad plans and responsibilities. Unlike Hathaway and Jim Sturgess‘ characters, who can’t admit how powerful their connection is, Jacob and Anna try with all their might to make their relationship work despite the physical distance and desire to date other people. And the Ingrid Michaelson cover of “Fools Rush In” just does you in. More »

The ‘One Day’ Poster Spoils the Movie

The 'One Day' Poster Spoils the Movie

We’ve heard of trailers showing all the good parts of a movie, but for a poster to spoil the climax of a film is ridiculous!

While at the movie theater recently, I walked past the official poster for the upcoming adaptation of One Day, David Nicholls’ lovely book about the uneven and evolving friendship between university alums Dex (Jim Sturgess) and Emma (Anne Hathaway).
