Cabin in the Woods

So, did y’all go see Cabin in the Woods this weekend?

Cabin in the Woods is a movie that just opened and if you haven’t gone to see it yet YOU HAVE TO! It is the best movie I’ve seen so far this year. It was written by Joss Whedon, and directed by Drew Goddard and Joss.

I’ve actually already seen it twice. It was one of the movies we saw last December at the 24 hour Butt-Numb-A-Thon┬áin Austin, TX. It was the favorite movie of the weekend for most people, and even if we wanted to talk about it we couldn’t. We weren’t even allowed to tweet the title of the movie. Then I saw it again on March 28th when there was a special preview screening here in Minneapolis with Drew Goddard doing a Q&A afterwards. There aren’t a lot of movies that you can say are just as good or better the second time you watch them, but this is one of them!

It is a horror movie, but it’s not just blood & gore. You will laugh a lot. One of the stars is Chris Hemsworth, who filmed this before his breakout role as Thor. And that is all I’m going to tell you.

Seriously. The less you know of the twists before going into this movie the more you’ll like it.

So, if you didn’t go see it this weekend, make sure you put it on your to do list!

A week full of awesome

Well, Rick left me this week. He’s out in Boston for work & won’t be back until Friday. I could sit around the house missing him, but where’s the fun in that?

Tomorrow night (Wednesday) I’ll be going to a sneak preview of The Cabin In The Woods. It’s a horror movie written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, and directed by Drew Goddard. Rick & I already saw this movie last December in Austin at Butt-Numb-A-Thon and it is AWESOME! Even better, the sneak preview tomorrow will have Drew Goddard & one of the actresses there for a Q&A afterwards.

I was just going to hang out at home on Thursday, but I got a Twitter message from a friend today asking me if I was going to the John Hodgman show at the Varsity Theater because the Hodgman was looking for experienced merch volunteers. So now I’ll be going to that tomorrow. Comp ticket in exchange for work that’s fun? Heck yeah!

And Friday. Rick will be home Friday afternoon and that night we will be attending both of The Nerdist Podcast Live shows at the Varsity. I absolutely adore Chris Hardwick & it will be fun to get to meet Matt & Jonah too. No word yet on who his guests will be, and if there will be different guests for the two shows or the same guest for both. But it will be awesome.
