I appreciate the thoughtful reply, Carl.
And of course, you're very right about the points you made, and it certainly is a hotbutton issue for some. In this case, I do feel more responsible for my own spoilage than I would have done had these messages come to the list, say, six months ago. Ironically, I was *very* careful to avoid all the discussions of the movie back then, but I have since relaxed a little too much. I figured this one was safe because we were talking about the larger idea of what a "fantasy" film is, but I clearly should have been more careful. Live and learn.
So, anyway, thanks. :)
