So with you on Cabin in the Woods! I loved it and was kind of bewildered when I heard the reasons some of the LEOG members didn't like it.
Sure, you have to accept that not everyone is going to like the same things as you, even if it's something you really love, but I thought for sure, if anyone, the LEOG would be unanimously in favor of Cabin in the Woods.

When you described American Horror Story, it perfectly summed up how I feel about Glee.

My problem with The Avengers is that it seemed too summer blockbustery. I liked it, it's a solid movie with nothing really wrong with it, but nothing really outstanding to me. It had that summer movie feel that movies like Transformers movies had (not comparing the two as movies, just the summer blockbuster feel that both had). I disagree with the point that The Dark Knight Rises wasn't as fun as I had so much fun on what they were going to do and how it would weave together as I figured some of the major points somewhat early on, but that's because I know about the comics and such.

I don't know why this line of Cyrus describing American Horror Story made me chuckle so much, but it did..."It's haunted as shit, I mean it's haunted as all fuck!"
(...i seriously rewound that part, like, ten times...)

No love for Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, huh? Looks like a classic "Damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation. A sequel gives the audience more of the same and people don't like it. A sequel gives the audience something wildly different -- and people don't like it.
Given how goofy the title of this franchise is when you say it (say it out loud to yourself and then tell me it doesn't sound utterly absurd) TCM2 is the kind of crazy, over-the-top zaniness I would expect from such a ludicrous title. Watch it again and you may wind up liking it much better the second time around. I know I did.

It's really bizarre that Cyrus talked to people who criticized Cabin in the Woods for not being scary. If people where unable to grasp from the opening scene that it wasn't the film's intention to be a standard horror film, that point should have been hammered home by(no serious spoilers) its balls out, cluster fuck of a finale. Also, damn its good to see Richard Jenkins in any worthwhile project, I love that guy.

Hey critics, the mutants on the Cursed Earth, in the Judge Dredd comics, look like the mutants from The Hills Have Eyes.

!!Cabin in the Woods Spoilers!!
Japan failed because the sacrifices beat their monster. From the context of the movie only one successful sacrifice was needed to stop the titans worldwide. So say the Japanese did not fail then the Americans would not have to do anything as the job would be finished already. But since every country failed Americans became the last chance for the world. When they failed as well the the titans came back into the world. I would consider titans to us what we are to bugs. Bugs still survive through numbers and hiding. We would revert to nomads who just try to survive just like animals do while we exterminate them.

I'm sorry, but I absolutely hated The Game. I am always willing to suspend my disbelief, and I loved the ride, but the ending ruined the entire movie for me.
If The Game had ended with Michael Douglas actually killing his brother and jumping to his death, that would have been PERFECT. I would have loved the irony of this all being an elaborate birthday party gone horribly, horribly wrong. But, the ending is so saccharine and contrived and typical Hollywood. I cannot respect the movie for not taking any chances. If it had taken that controversial ending, I would praise Criterion for picking it up. As it stands, however, I don't think it deserves the honor.
Of course, I'm not a big fan of unmitigated happy endings.

My grandfather is in that car chase scene for The French Connection. he lived at an apartment with my dad right by the train station near the end of it, and they asked if he wanted to be an extra.

Cabin in the woods is a mediocre film, that is poorly thought out, not very funny, and fanboys squeal about because they want to be included in the conversation. It is bad, Whedon is not a good writer, and everyone involved should feel bad about it,

Cabin in the Woods was very fun to watch, although I want to get something off my chest about the film. Making virtually any precise remark about the movie treads into spoiler territory, though, and I’m not sure how to conceal my text. I’ll italicize the text, but if the comment must be deleted that’s fine.
CABIN IN THE WOODS SPOILER BELOW
The function for killing four specific motifs of mankind seems flawed to me. Purportedly, as the final scene displays, the whole esoteric ritual played out during the film is required to subdue ancient titan gods and prevent them from roaming the Earth. Considering such an uprising would not only wreak havoc upon everything humans have built but also may well extinguish humanity for good, I see the whole concept as very implausible to begin with.
How did the species come to get off the ground if these titans had been around for so long?
Were the titan gods on Earth before the Upper Paleolithic era (they're "ancient" apparently), and if so was it the early modern humans who first spawned this necessary ritual so that they may live in peace? In the movie we see the control station located within the US, just above one of the titans, but it couldn’t have been the Homo sapiens of North America because by the time they arrived here, after crossing the now submerged Bering Strait, modern humans had been living all over the Old World for thousands of years. Surely they were not living in harmony with these marauding titans.
I know what you’re thinking; “Well, maybe any human group could perform these rituals and subdue the totality of the titan god population that's spread across the globe; it needn’t have to be specifically North American Indians.” That would seem plausible, but Japan apparently “won” their contest and no adverse consequence was seen during the movie. The titans didn’t rise upon the Japanese winning and keeping their perfect score. Going by the objectives of the American ritual, the people being manipulated are supposed to die, not vanquish an evil foe.
Anyway, definitely a good movie.

Hey guys, I was left a little cold after the first Lincoln trailer but after the debate, I was blow away by this trailer.
Holy shit! What a farce that we just watched as a debate. I am a supporter of Obama but was left feeling cold by both sides and this showed me a true sense of patriotism.

I always felt Jeepers Creepers is an underrated gem, even if the entire premise was stolen from an episode of Unsolved Mysteries.
Still a very scary film.
