“The Cabin In The Woods Movie Review (Spoiler Free) – Subverting the horror movie tropes in the world we live in.”
At one point or another, you’ve probably felt trapped in a world were the rules, conceptions and value systems were imposed on you. And no matter how hard you tried to break the social norm, stereotype or a commonly held belief, you feel there is some overwhelming force conspiring against you. Or maybe after a heated debate you realized all your arguments were from something you watched on TV or heard from someone else. As much as we might feel like a puppet on a string at times, we ultimately do have a choice. Or maybe we’re just missing the point? These are some of the questions posed in the smart, funny, horror movie ‘The Cabin In The Woods’, directed and cowritten by Drew Goddard (Cloverfield, Lost).
Check out an exclusive interview with Director Joss Whedon on Assembling ‘The Avengers’ at New York Times website. Joss Whedon talks about how he backed out of directing Iron Man, how he won the Avengers Movie with a single email pitch to Marvel Studios, and his experience on directing stars like Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson. The following is a brief excerpt from the interview:
Question: And you can live with having all the plot points of the previous Marvel movies dictated to you when you walk in the door?
Answer: Yeah, sure. And where all the other sequels are going to go. There was talk about, should we have this character? I’m like, you need to save that character for that other sequel. You can’t just throw that moment away. One of the biggest struggles for me was the end of “Iron Man 2″: “I’m in a semi-stable relationship.” “We approve of Iron Man but not Tony Stark.” They really made my job hard, in that respect. But you get all these pieces and it’s a puzzle. But it’s a puzzle that comes together. It’s not just a bunch of broken stuff — there is a way that it’s supposed to fit. And when it does, you find you’re being given as many gifts as you are problems.
“We’re not a team. We’re a timebomb”. Just when you thought you couldn’t get more excited about Marvel’s Avengers movie, the new trailer explodes with intense action, gorgeous special effects and great one-liners. Thor Vs Captain America? Love the fact that all these giant egos are not gonna get along at first. Check out the new trailer below! (UK release date is April 26. US and Canada release day is May 4). What’s that huge flying thing at the very end?
Too soon for a Spider-Man reboot? Well, it’s coming to theatres this July!
