I demand there to be screencaps released of Kristen Connolly in her pants at the start of the movie.

I can't wait that long till the Blu ray is out
I'd rather have screencaps of her in her panties.

Re: Cabin in the Woods - Grading, Discussion, Spoilers

Just to say Cabin in the Woods now has a DVD/Blu-ray release date of September 24 (Region 2 anyway)

And Avengers is out September 17, so it'll make a nice double dip Joss Whedon week




(... and yes I will finally be able to admire *that* early scene in HD )

I finally got around to seeing this yesterday, having somehow managed to stay spoiler free. I found it to be utterly delightful - I enjoyed every moment. Definitely going to be a Blu-ray purchase for me.

Someone should mix this genre with balls to the walls action films. A mysterious cabin in the woods? A Mike Meyers wannabe about to slash your loved ones? Arnold, Sly, Chuck and Bruce to the rescue. What's Freddy Krüger saying to that Minigun?

How did all the monsters held inside the facility get there? Once they escape, they're completely unmanageable and all our modern technology is helpless to stop them. Who captured them and how? Why weren't there any countermeasures in place that could actually work? (This isn't a problem with the film per se, but it is an interesting question, and I couldn't help but ask it while the movie was still playing.)
I kept thinking the same thing. And how did they capture these things in the first place?

Re: Cabin in the Woods - Grading, Discussion, Spoilers

I saw this last night for the first time.

It was definitely clever and engaging, but overall a big WTF!?

How did Topher survive a machete in the back? His shirt didn't even have a hole in it when he came back...did he have time to change after trowling the zombie?

So, these gods....are they like the Titans or something? Why would they stay down there in exchange for a couple of grisly murders now and then?

What's the deal with the zombies running loose? I guess since those idiotic kids decided to let the world die rather than sacrifice themselves, it doesn't make any difference.

There were some great scenes (the motorcycle jump into the barrier, the celebration as the girl was getting mauled at the docks), and lots of potential.

I don't know. I was hoping to like it more. Maybe I need to watch it again to see what I missed. As it is, I gave it a "so-so".

Just repeat to yourself, "it's just a movie and I should really just relax."
