It took me so long to watch the Cabin in the Woods and I'm super embarrassed about it. Ever since it came out--heck, before
it came out even, people were all like "OMG YOU GUYS THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER"
and I was all like wait a minute... I thought Ghostbusters was the best movie ever?
And they were like yeah okay maybe... but THE CABIN IN THE WOODS IS SO GOOD.
And naturally I became dubious because sometimes the hype monster takes control of people's emotions and it gets messy.
However. All of a sudden people--normal people that I work with for instance, or people that do not like horror movies started coming up to me and being like, "OMG ANDRE THE CABIN IN THE WOODS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER".
And I was all like huh?
How is it, that people who do not like horror movies could say such a statement. Needless to say it was a cats and dogs living together kind of situation.
So fast forward to now, when I FINALLY got to see The Cabin the Woods for myself. In fact, I even bought it on Amazon instant video because I felt so embarrassed about not seeing it in the first place. I thought that maybe if I bought it, everyone would forgive me for not seeing it. And by everyone, I mean Morgan Freeman.
So what did I think.....
YOU GUYS THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER.
It really is great. It's fun, it's scary, it's weird, it's awesome, it's smart, it's stupid,---it's kind of exactly like my life when I write it all out like that... but most importantly it's something you should definitely watch. Not that anyone exists anymore that hasn't seen it. But just in case there is someone like me crouching in the corner and holding themselves while mumbling about how they don't want to be disappointed----
You won't be. Although, you should probably put on some clothes. But yes, The Cabin in the Woods is an exquisite treat of life.
Should I even talk about why it's so awesome? I don't know. I don't think I need to. The Cabin in the Woods is just so drastically different than anything that has come out in the last decade, it's kind of difficult to talk about it's awesomeness without sounding like a crazy person.
I just love virtually everything about this--but especially how different it is. And maybe even more especially the details of everything. For instance, someday I would like to really run a fine toothed comb through the basement scene and figure out which beast each thing stands for. Of course I already tried that and it was way too dark to really do it--
but also I can't figure out how each beast could even be represented in that tiny basement. Is this just a pipe dream? Probably.
Maybe instead I'll just keep watching The Cabin the Woods and dancing in my bed every time. Good thing I bought this movie so I can keep watching it and dance in my bed. People should really hire me to make important life decisions for them. I'm so good at it.
