    Just saw this movie today, and it actually exceeded my expectations by quite a bit. It's a must see for anyone who enjoys humor with their horror movies. It's also been getting pretty high praise all around by critics, which is hard to do with this genre. Usually when a horror movie is sitting at 85% or higher, it's almost always good. It's not really Scream 2012, but it deconstructs the genre somewhat similarly as what the original Scream did in 96; in it's very unique way of course. Can't really say much more than that without ruining the punchline, even if you've seen a bunch of trailers.

    I've heard a bit about the ending. I wasn't planning on seeing it, but now I'm curious how it gets to that point.

    Get a real sense of humor? It doesn't matter if it was predictable, it wasn't supposed to be some great mystery. Do I really need to explain the entire point of the movie to you? Because it's quite obvious you either totally missed it, or thought the movie was supposed be something that it wasn't. No shit it was a comedy--and a meta one at that. And it was made for horror fans.

    I guess I shouldn't have edited my original post down, because I had stated it was closer to something like Tucker and Dale vs Evil or even Behind the Mask. Neither of which was supposed to be "scary" movies (almost no horror movies are anyway). Even the fucking title of the movie should clue you in.

    I thought you were referring to the book in Skryim.

    And I've suddenly stopped giving a shit about the opinions of anyone under 25 (and that's being gracious).

    It has nothing to do with being 25, I think Steve is the only person I've seen who didn't like it. No need to get mad over a very minority opinion.

    I'm not "mad", as much as I'm done bothering any attempts at conversation with people who can't actually give more than just simple denouncements. It's not necessarily an "age thing" as much as it is experience.

    Saw it, loved it. Nice take/poke at the genre. Really anyone who doesn't like it well,...they don't like it.

    I do love a bit of Whedon.

    Except Buffy. It's crap.

    Firefly > Serenity > everything else he's done up until this point. And I really tried to watch the first season of Buffy, but it's impossible for me to stomach, even with the okay lead. I'd rather watch the soap opera Vampire Diaries than that show.

    Yeah, I really just mean Firefly. It's ace.

    Dollhouse wasn't too bad either.

    i dont really get the love for whedon, most of his stuff really seems aimed at teenage girls or something. i saw serenity somewhere without seeing firefly first and i really hated it and wanted them all to die. everyone says firefly is good but i really cant believe them and probably wont ever watch it.

    Terrible place to start. I started in maybe the 3rd season? Saw the first season much later, it was silly as hell. It got much better.

    That said. I eat up sappy bullshit teenage dramas like nobody's business. :headbang:

    Well, that's too bad. Because it really was unlike pretty much any other show which is probably why it was canned so quickly. Well okay, that's not entirely true. It was like "The Han Solo Project" if you know what I mean.
