ETA: The one question that popped into my mind last night was this (DO NOT READ if you plan to watch the movie but have not yet!!):
Click to see Spoiler:We clearly learned by the end that the people in the cabin were put there to fulfill the specific roles: whore, athlete, fool, academic, and virgin. So how the heck was a classroom full of young Japanese school girls going to fulfill that quota?? The question left me wishing I could know more about what was taking place in the other countries involved. Did they have their own stereotypical horror genre roles they were trying to fulfill in their own rituals?
The Avengers - Overall it's a good superhero movie. It was long and it felt long to me. Loki is supposed to be this terribly nefarious character, but the actor who plays him reminds me of Johnny Weir and that makes it really hard for me to take him seriously as a villain.
Got to watch Cabin in the Woods last night - I loved it. Humor, horror, gore, and good writing, my kind of movie! I was wondering the same thing as you aboutClosetRTWatcher. I wish they had showed a bit more about that, but overall I was happy with it.Click to see Spoiler:the other countries rituals
What I didnt like about Cabin in the woods is that I thought I was going to see one movie and got another - if you know what I mean.
once I realized what the movie was, I did enjoy it, but it felt like a bait and switch.
We watched Trespass, a rather silly home invasion movie with Nicole Kidman and Nicholas Cage. I should have known better.
