The Cabin in the Woods - Probably my favorite movie of the year. Such a brilliant disection of pop culture and society by Goddard/Whedon. You could see spin offs of this idea in every genre, sub-genre, and niche around the world. It's too bad that Whedon will be doing the next Avengers, since now he has "**** you" money to produce four or five more of these kinds of movies. In that vein, if this movie had $10-15 million more in budget for the effects, it would have felt a little better. Still a great use of budget though District 9 is still the high watermark for that. It's the kind of material that exponetially rewards revisiting and discussion. I have happily pre-ordered the **** out of it.
