April in a Tweet: Joss Whedon month! Cabin in the Woods and Avengers both assembled icons from their respective genres. Plus, we got our first Jo Nesbo film.
Best Film: Marvel Avengers Assemble - crowd-pleasing, fan-pleasing and well worth the wait. Marvel Studio's long-running commitment to this franchise really paid off.
Best Actor: it's hard to pick a winner from a month of ensemble films but Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson in Avengers almost stole the show with his straight-talking, nonchalant reactions to the superhero antics.
Best Actress: Scarlett Johanssen was a sure-fire hit as Black Widow and made the character far more interesting than her Iron Man 2 appearance, utilising her dark back story to hit the emotional notes but equally happy kicking-ass. Bring on a Black Widow spin-off prequel.
Best Line: with two Whedon scripts to choose from, this is a hard call. But let's go with one of Tony Stark's zingers. "Dr. Banner, your work is unparalleled. And I'm a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster."
Other Best Line: "I'm sorry I let you get attacked by a werewolf and then ended the world." Marty (Fran Kranz) in Cabin in the Woods.
Best Scene: the Cabin in the Woods system purge. Bad luck for the SWAT team.
Other Best Scene: Loki meets the Hulk in Avengers. It doesn't go too well for one of them.
Best Newcomer: TV screenwriter Drew Goddard makes his directorial debut with meta-horror Cabin in the Woods.
Films Seen: Headhunters, The Cabin in the Woods, Marvel Avengers Assemble.
