The reboot of an Irish legend, the daydreams of a creep, a less than amazing race, the return of Wayans woe, sibling misery, the Friedberg/Seltzer effect, fake cops on the run, Zach Braff’s growing pains, an uneventful home invasion, and the terror of found footage. These are the Worst Films of 2014.

Opening on April 13th is a film that’s almost impossible to describe. “The Cabin in the Woods” marks the directorial debut for screenwriter Drew Goddard, who achieved early industry success with his work on the monster movie “Cloverfield” and the hit television shows, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Lost.” Reteaming with Joss Whedon, Goddard looks to shake up the stale conventions of the horror genre with “Cabin,” a marvelous joyride of scares and giggles that’s a pure valentine to the moviegoing experience. Recently, I had an opportunity to sit down and discuss this wonderfully peculiar picture with Goddard, a man palpably excited to see his oft-delayed feature finally released.

The filmmaker also offered a few moments to discuss his picture and his feelings on the future of the industry.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a motion simulator attraction titled “Star Tours,” born from the imagination of George Lucas and his iconic “Star Wars” franchise. For over two decades, the entertainment experience remained unchanged at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, leaving fans to wonder if the semi-dated attraction would ever see a significant overhaul. After all, being an unabashed tinkerer, why would Lucas leave one of the more vividly imagined forays into his ATM-like empire unmolested? Would “Star Tours” remain the same forever? I mean, honestly, how many times can a person do the trench run before a case of the sleeps sets in?
