Official Dancing-For-the-Man Post

Having been consumed with the desire to see Joss Whedon's Serenity and observing an opportunity to see it a couple of days early and at a remarkable discount (read: free), I now find myself having to do a bit of singing for my supper. I had every intention of writing about this film after seeing it, but apparently my chances for seeing it early and freely will be significantly increased by posting the text below.

Joss Whedon, the Oscar® - and Emmy - nominated writer/director responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE [SLAYER], ANGEL and FIREFLY, now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a small band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature film directorial debut, Serenity. The film centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family –squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.

Hm. Well, that doesn't make me want to see it anymore than I did before. But if you're one of the roughly two people that read this blog on a regular basis and you need convincing, I'll add that if this movie is anything like the short-lived television show that inspired it, it's going to be well-written, funny, smart, poignant, sexy, exciting, and fun with lots of good eye candy for everyone. (hooray for Captain Tightpants!). (ETA: And yes, the bracketed word "Slayer" was missing from the official summary.)

Serenity opens this Friday (September 30).

Um...Buffy the Vampire? Something missing there? :P

I'm actually one of those two. The trailer didn't look especially enticing to me, and...I haven't been as fond of Whedon lately as I used to be. But perhaps I'll give him another chance.

Buffy the Vampire?

*dies* I just copy/pasted the (supposedly official) summary from the e-mail I was sent. *corrects and adds a bit of snark*

Still not interested. I just don't get the whole Firefly craze.

Moey said...

Oh, I'm totally going too. Free is FREE. And I LOVE Firefly, so, you have to do what you have to do. :)
