The Cabin in the Woods (2012, dir. Drew Goddard) is a successful satire on the state of modern horror films. It’s been referred to as a ‘loving hate letter’ to the genre. In this post, I’m going to discuss the use of stereotypes in this film and criticisms thrown at them.
“It’s very much a global Avengers film. A lot of the movie has to do with their place not just in America, but the world. Part of the fun for me, definitely this time around, is writing Hawkeye. He did get possessed pretty early by a bad guy and had to walk around all scowly for most of the movie so now it’s nice to actually have the character there and see him interact with the other guys.”—

(In other words, Hawkeye will most likely get more than 14 minutes of screen time this time around, yay!)
“When you get shanked by the Asgardian Mussolini you can tell it your way.”—Agent Coulson on his death (and recovery) in the seriously awesome Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D pilot, which Joss Whedon and friends just debuted at Comic Con. September 24th cannot come soon enough. (via hulu)
