In Joss We Trust

There are people who go to films based on the stars who appear in them. I am more likely to pick a film based on the director or script writer. Anything by Aaron Sorkin, the creator of the West Wing, will attract my attention. In recent years that has lead me to see Charlie Wilson’s War, The Social Network, and Moneyball: all three excellent films.

This weekend I shall go to the cinema to see Cabin in the Woods. I do not normally watch horror movies at the cinema, but this one shares script credit with Joss Whedon; the creative force behind such modern TV classics as Buffy, Dollhouse, and the incomparable Firefly.

This film is not Whedon’s main movie outing of the year. Next month he is writer and director of a summer blockbuster; The Avengers. However, superheroes in 3D may offer less chance for Whedon characters than a small horror film. I shall see both films.
