Finally seen it. And all I can say is - wow.

Ok, that's not strictly speaking true, but a detailed review will have to wait until I have seen it again, and the shock wears off. But it was everything you would expect from Joss Whedon, and the cast delivered brilliantly as well. It haven't felt this way after a movie since Revenge of the Sith. Well, I would have felt like this after Revenge of the Sith, if it had romantic dialogue that made people cheer (yes, they cheered) instead of cringe.

Did I say 'Wow'?

For anyone who reads this and wasn't with us, we got there about an hour early, and there were already people in line. We went to get dinner and then joined the queue. By the time we went in, the line was out the door of the theatre, and there were only a few spare seats in the front row. Very impressive turnout.

Seems like everyone who came enjoyed it, and even the non-fans could follow it, which was good. We had 13 people show up in total, so I was happy. It was also a good chance to catch up with old friends I don't see so often.

So, to everyone who came, thanks, and I hope you had a good time. Now, go see it again, and drag more people with you. If you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for? Go now. Get up, walk away from the computer and towards the movie. It's time everyone found Serenity :)


Oh, and the exam went suprisingly well. All in all, not a bad day.

Now you just need to set up your firefly dvd day.
The reviews of serenity have been interesting, very divided.

[profile] go_the_brumbies is trying to get the room for next saturday, so we'll see how that goes.

And everyone knows that reviewers don't know what they are talking about - unless they like it, in which case they do

Hi yah

I saw serenity on Thursday it is as you said like wow, unfortuately due to rapid timing on my new job I won't have time to see it again here In Kal. Wish I'd had a few friends around instead of the local teenage scifi boys.

See yah

Well, hello there :)

Nice to see you. Great that you got a chance to see Serenity - the more the merrier. You know, I wouldn't have thought that Kal HAD any sci-fi boys :)
