Before a movie, it would be helpful if they showed pictures of the main characters and their names so you don't get confused, amirite?

Ha, I wouldn't remember that shit.

Figuring that out is part of the fun.

it wouldn't be nearly helpful for the film adaptation of a hundred years of solitude. or the book.

For Phonebooth, Saving Private Ryan, Identity and Se7en doing this would be a spoiler.

They did this in Scott Pilgrim vs the world

Just to clarify, I know that sometimes it will be a spoiler to show some characters, and they would obviously be left out. But when a movie just jumps straight into the action, without really properly introducing characters, it can get confusing and jumbled.

I loved reading the Eragon series because it listed all of the characters and places in the back, so if you got confused you'd just check back in the glossary.

Reminds me of reading play-like books in school- (raisin in the sun) (romeo&juliet) where the character list had descriptions & it made understanding so much easier! Ex: PINKSPONGE {amiriter} - creator of great ideas

When there are more than 2 characters with indescript features (like several 40-something white brunette males) I find myself getting so confused I stop paying attention.
The only problem with this I keeping it from looking corny.

This will only help retards. But then retards dont watch movies because they dont know what a movie is.
