It's a Joss Whedon movie, it was definitely tongue-in-cheek. I mean you didn't think that part with the unicorn was meant to be serious did you? I thought the humor was the best part of the movie actually. It was in the characters, and especially the ending, that I thought the movie fell short.

To me, it was clearly a comedy from the point where the title of the movie suddenly comes on unexpectedly in big, red letters. I mean the whole plot was dafter than the story from Naked Gun.

edit :

I mean, the jokes were pretty obvious. For example how the monsters in every other place fail to murder anyone, for example the Namara-ish japanese horror that the little girls kill with love or whatever. That's humour.

Haha, that part was hilarious.

The last film I have seen in the cinema was Batman DKR but, I got Battleship on DVD and watched that about 2 weeks ago.

^Hehe, yeah. I laughed quite a few times when we saw it in the cinema and, like you wrote, the humour was what I appreciated the most about the movie.

I approached it as a horror, which was probably a mistake, since it was a really disappointing horror movie. But all the reviews described it as an extremely original horror film and there was no mention of a comedy anywhere. Had I expected a comedy, my state of mind would have probably been different. Still, even as a comedy, it's still 6/10. Some things in the film were funny, but not funny enough. The unicorn part was funny

Anyway, after seeing The Cabin In The Woods, I watched Yesterday Was A Lie. I had high expectations, and the movie delivered most of them.

8/10

I don't know if I'd really call it a comedy or a horror movie. It's more like one of those meta-movies along the lines of Being John Malkovich (though not as good). It has a lot of humor, it has some horror, but it mostly it's about turning genre inside out.

So I watched Lost in Translation and it was a complete disappointment.
