Kevin Smith hosts poignant discussion of Aurora shooting on Hulu's 'Spoilers' -- VIDEO

On his Hulu’s summer movie appreciation show Spoilers, Kevin Smith usually hosts a lively, free-wheeling discussion about that weekend’s big movie with a live studio audience that had just seen the film. This week’s episode was supposed to be about The Dark Knight Rises; instead, Smith chose to spend the entire half hour talking with his audience about the deadly shooting at a midnight screening of the film in Aurora, Colo.

“This is a show about loving movies,” says Smith in the introduction. “Movies mean the world to us.

Defy the theater shooter: Go out to see a film, and DON'T be afraid -- ANALYSIS

So if you want to defy the theater-shooter and the terror he has created — go out this weekend to see a film and enjoy being with your fellow moviegoers.

Don’t be afraid. READ FULL STORY
