What is one of the key elements in a book that makes you want to read more?
Would you keep on reading if you knew in advance what was going to happen in the next chapter of a book?
I will not spoil your reading of “Donde surgen las sombras”and will not reveal the ending.
In movies is a bit the same, it is not fun knowing what’s going to happen, before experiencing it yourself, is it?
there are websites that are perfect spoilers, they kill the suspense and the climax of the film by revealing how movies end.
Suspense holds you to the edge of your seat and it is that desire to know what will happen next.
Lovepreet sent me a great link (thank’s Lovepreet) where you can read all the questions Jamal had to answer in the game show. I encourage you to visit that great site, you’ll find a lot of interesting information about Slumdog Millionaire. However, wait until you see it first. Make the effort to try to understand before reading. Your English will benefit, and you will also discover that it is much more rewarding to discover things yourself than being told. I know you will remember what the population of Mumbai is, its situation and all the information you have searched yourself!
Here are the first 4 questions and answers, I will not spoil anything, as we have already watched the first part, but we’ll work the rest together, while watching the film.
1) For 1,000 rupees: Who was the star in the 1973 hit film “Zanjeer“? (A) Amitabh Bachchan (the rest of the answer choices are not revealed).
2) For 4,000 rupees: A picture of three lions is seen in the national emblem of India. What is written underneath it? (A) Truth alone triumphs, (B) Lies alone triumph, (C) Fashion alone triumphs, or (D) Money alone triumphs.
3) For 16,000 rupees: In depictions of God Rama, he is famously holding what in his right hand? (A) A flower, (B) A sword, (C) A child, or (D) A bow-and-arrow.
4) For 250,000 rupees: The song “Darshan Do Ghanshyam” was written by which famous Indian poet? (A) Surdas, (B) Tulsidas, (C) Mira Bai, or (D) Kabir.
I know it is a temptation… but DO NOT SPOIL IT! do not kill suspense. Do not click here... not yet
Can you think of any time when a friend/teacher/film critic/book review spoiled a book or film?
