The Cabin in the Woods. What the fuck did I just watch?!

Did you like it?

Honestly, not really. It was a little different, I'll give it that, but it mostly felt like a confused Evil Dead ripoff to me.

I can, after much personal struggle, see someone not liking it. But Evil Dead ripoff? That loses me, or at least makes me wonder what Evil Dead movie I've been watching all these years.

I'm interested to hear people's take on it because I've showed it to a few non-horror fan friends who've loved it.  Unlike 'Drag Me to Hell' where I think you *needed* to be a hardcore horror fan to fully appreciate it, there's a lot of Scream-esq mocking of the tropes while celebrating them as well as the subplot that turns everything on it's head.

The Five Year Engagement

I loved it.  One of the best I've seen this year.  Very funny and charming.  Chris Pratt is awesome.

I actually hate the horror genre. Can't stand blood and gore and the like, but I loved Cabin in the Woods.

I don't hate horror, but it's far from my favorite. I just rented this and looking forward to watching it tonight when the kids go to bed.

I don't mind blood. For me its organs and entrails and stuff that really gets to me.  Some scenes in zombie movies I've seen leave me in a cold sweat.

Romero always devotes at least one scene to nothing but zombies chowing down after a big rush. It can definitely get a bit nauseating.

Yes, the guy in the hallway in one of those movies (only seen it on youtube) is what I was thinking of.  And Dylan Moran's death in Shaun really got me too.
You're thinking of Captain Rhodes' death in Day of the Dead when he gets ripped apart alive (CHOKE ON EM! CHOKE ON EM!), which the Dylan scene was a reference to because the same thing happens to him (without the macho screaming).

The only time I have a problem with gore is when it's done very realisticly, and isn't over the top or fake looking. But then just that I am frustrated with the lack of fun. Just regular humans torturing other regular humans is the epitomy of boring.

Argo

Wow.  It was really intense for not having many action scenes.  Ben Affleck really knows how to direct.  I think he'll get a lot of recognition for this. 

Very topical with the embassy attacks in Libya and Egypt.

I'm a gorehound regardless of the situation, but yeah. I generally prefer a Dead/Alive style thing as opposed to a Hostel or Irreversible style thing (and I say that as someone who likes all three of those movies).

Capitalism:  A love story

Another Michael Moore movie, this one about the Wal Street crash and bank bail out.  Very interesting.

Thinking I may go see Frankenweenie Wednesday night.

So I finished Cabin in the Woods. Loved it. I wasn't sure what to think at first because it was mostly the same old horror flick cliches with random scenes of other stuff for no apparent reason. Then it all came together and I was pleasantly surprised.

If he wanted that movie to make sense, he shouldn't have charged people to see it. The only thing I remember about that is him standing in front of a stock board looking confused. I hate that fat asshole.

I got advance tickets. www.gofobo.com usually offers stuff to the public. There is also a local critic who offers advance tickets on his website.

Gofobo's great, but I only ever seem to get tickets from them when I get a random invite (and then it's a mixed bag as to whether it's a movie that's actually worth watching). I go onto their site and see all these other screenings, and they always are completely filled up long before I ever even get a chance.
