Cabin in the Woods was amazing. I came out of the cinema exhilirated and couldn’t rid myself of a loony grin as I caught the train to my abode. No doubt my fellow commuters thought me strange and simple-like, but this is okay. They probably do not yet know The Majesty That Is Your Film.
I have read on the interwebs that a sequel to Cabin in the Woods may occur. In light of this, I have come up with a way to continue the glories you have started.

Oh my god, you guys, I saw The Avengers again today and it was just as good as the first time!!! This time, I thought I would take notes on why it was so awesome (and also to learn a bit at the movie knee of Joss) but that kind of stopped about twenty minutes into the movie. Because I got distracted. BY THE AWESOME.
So, I’m going to detail my twenty minutes worth of notes below the jump. Potential spoilers, peeps. Click away ONLY if you’ve ALREADY SUCCUMBED TO THE AWESOME
How can you not HEART Joss Whedon? This was his response when asked about what he’d do in the inevitable (please, God!) The Avengers sequel:
By not trying to [top it]. By being smaller. More personal, more painful. By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself. I want to know what makes them tick, what makes them flawed, what makes them fight — and ultimately, what makes them awesome. I go to these movies for those moments when the heroes define themselves, either through action or deliciously overwritten speeches.
Does this guy know his stuff or what?? I WOULD GO SEE THIS MOVIE IN A HEARTBEAT.
But then, I’d go see anything by Joss. So, really, not much of a recommendation ;p
