Movie Review: 'Smaug' alert for 'The Hobbit'

Wednesday, January 8, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Let's make this perfectly clear.

This movie review contains a spoiler.

Spoiler alert!

You've heard of that.

It's when a movie reviewer or someone writing or discussing a movie gives away a key plot point, one that might "spoil" the movie for you if you haven't seen it because the suspense or surprise of not knowing the reveal, or story resolve, or plot outcome, is removed.
