These two movies blew me away completely. I gotta give it to Avengers here though. It's amazing.
These two movies were amazing. The avengers wins. It was beyond my expectations.
Avengers has some good characterisation, but the plot annoyed me. Cabin has the better story, and is a lot more unique.
Our Joss is an awesome Joss.
Cabin in the Woods. It's unique and extremely surprising.
The Avengers its one of the most memorable films within its genre, while Cabin is very good, but it doesn't reach The Avengers' level.
Cabin, both great but Avengers was subject to blockbuster structure and formula while Cabin was meta movie that not only paid homage to horror movies but redefined what you could do with the genre, hopefully new horror movies learn from it
The best two movies from this past summer....Avengers just slips by...
Cabin in the Woods was a much needed shot in the arm for the horror genre, whereas The Avengers dumbed down the comic genre. No contest.
Stick to meta-horror Joss.
Cabin in the Woods.
I could call these movies equally good...but even in that case I'd prefer the lighter side of Joss Whedon, thanks.
While Avengers is the best non-Batman comic book movie I've ever seen, Cabin in the Woods is still an even better time. Wouldn't you like to see a merman?
Both movies are some of the best of their year. However, I'm more of a horror fanatic than a superhero fanatic, so I'll have to go with Cabin in the Woods.
I just saw Cabin, and thought it was more entertaining than Avengers, although I'd probably rather watch Avengers more often. Cabin plays like an extra demented episode of Buffy. I would have preferred a "happier" ending - basically the whole movie can be chalked up as an ode to Illuminati ritual sacrifice, or maybe a deconstruction of it, I'm not too sure, as the same themes pop up in Whedon's ouvre and I can't tell which side he's on. "We do the best we can with what we have" Ha! Is it really that hard to find a young virgin? It's not that hard to find an OLD virgin (although no one will admit to it). What a jackass you are sometimes, Whedon, it would have been more interesting if she was. Or you just wanted to be a smart-ass? Yeah, that's why it ended the way it did. And this a *Cabin in the Woods*, man, why didn't anyone bring any firearms? Or was it set in a blue state?
Well, I liked both of these movies, but I don't think Cabin is unique. It felt to me like a mash-up of Evil Dead and Scream (though it had an interesting ending), and if being considered original is just putting together the ideas of two other movies, that's a bit sad. To end this comment on a more positive note, I really enjoyed pretty much every scene in the Avengers, and hope the sequel is even better.
