    The Avengers


    You've got to give it to a film that can pull off giving finely balanced screen time to seven leads and one villain. Not flawless by any means, but pure fun all the way. As a massive Marvel fan since I was old enough to read, this was definitely worth the wait.

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Best film I've seen so far this year. Hands down.
    Every review I've read of this complains of the film not being scary. I'd agree, but that's really not the point. They had to market this under the horror banner, but the story is typical of Whedon's genre-blurring anyway, which some people (called idiots) can't seem to ever get behind.
    The big name cameo at the end didn't really do it for me though.. it kind of pulled me out…
