The Cabin in the Woods,
the new Joss Whedon thing. See it immediately! It's great. I hadn't seen any of the trailers or read anything about it before seeing it, and that's a good way to go in. It's kind-of a horror movie, but they reveal the "twist" pretty early on. It's a deconstruction of the genre in the tradition of Wes Craven's New Nightmare
except without being so self-conscious and self-congratulatory about it. It also, oddly, is compatible with the Buffyverse, to the extent that I wonder whether the script began as an episode.
These days I pretty much only set foot in an actual movie theatre about once a year, because it's such an unpleasant environment, and most movies are so awful that I can't sit through them without the fast-forward button, so why would I pay twelve bucks to disable my remote and have to listen to an audience of unfunny people who aren't my friends talking to each other? I did not feel the need for a ffwd button with this movie.
Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated: No, I know, what? I posted a link to a review of this show a while back because, hey, it's not often you hear someone say something nice about Scooby Doo, but he was totally right, this show is hilarious!
Also, the science and backstory totally make more sense than Game of Thrones. Scooby Doo, for example, does not contain Demon Queefs, and if it did, someone would eventually ask, "How did you hide that guy in your vagina?" and get an answer like, "I combined a jetpack and a laser pointer, duh."
Some choice actual quotes:
"We've all had a Fred in our lives, Daphne. Mine was a carnie named Knuckles Wazinski. He ran the Round-Up. The last time I saw him he was spinning at 40 miles an hour and covered in a 4 year old's puke."
"I'll bet you clams to casino that the vampire is in the greenhouse."
"There's only one restaurant in town exclusive enough to carry that vintage: The Crab Net of Dr. Calimari."
Orc: "Do not mock me! I have Eldrich blood!" Velma: "And sometimes I have a chick moustache. So?"
Also, Harlan Ellison and HP Hatecraft are teachers at their high school -- and they are voiced by Harlan Ellison and Jeffrey Combs! And it's strongly implied that Velma's mom fucked Ellison.
Beyond the Black Rainbow: This movie freaked me the fuck out. It's really slow, but so creepy that while trying to watch it late at night on two separate occasions, I fell asleep both times -- which doesn't sound like a good review except that it actually gave me nightmares. It has a look that is somewhere between THX-1138 those Dharma Initiative videos from Lost, and the whole movie seems to really be a delivery vehicle for the weird and kind of awesome analog-synthy soundtrack. I can hardly even describe what this movie is about, except that it is made entirely of drugs. Like I said, it's slow, but you should give it time.
Mission Impossible 2 Fast 2 Ghost Protocol: This was surprisingly good in that it was not completely awful and I wasn't even that drunk. (Yes, I am damning with faint praise.) It was exactly what a Mission Impossible movie should be: a slick version of a 60s Bond movie. I did enjoy that every time they tried to use some IMF Super Tech, it completely broke halfway through.
Conan: Not nearly as terrible as everyone said. It was way better than Conan the Destroyer or Red Sonja.
Green Lantern: This was pretty much exactly as terrible as everyone said.
