See it. It’s awesome.
Then rent the series. Then you’ll get all the little jokes and what not.
LOVE THE MOVIE, by the way. Then again, I’m one of the late convert. When it was first on TV, like a lot of people, I didn’t get it. Aurora turned us onto the show once the DVD came out and we’re hooked.
Now, for those who wants to read my reaction to the movie, I’ll spout off right here. But will leave spoiler in the brackets so you can highlight that at your own risk.[ WHY WASH!?!?!?!?!?!? Goddamn it. You cannot NOT have Wash!?!? Shepherd, I can understand. But WASH!
And not a word about Blue Sun Corp? No Two By Two Hands Blue action here? I guess that would be too much for people who aren’t familiar with the TV show. Just like downplaying Kaylie. Other than playing the cute girl who gets the doctor, they don’t really showcase her talent as much.
And yeah. The engine room gets some action again. Heheheee. I’m glad they resolve that for the two of them. Good for Kaylie! And boy, isn’t our little doctor nicely built? 😉 ]
Oh, and look at the good captain, speaking of beefy? Compare him in the movie to the naked Mal on the rocks. He’s definitely leaner and beefier here. [ Why won’t they let him lose his clothes again for the ladies? Come on. You have Inara in her little Amazonian with a bow gitup. Oh well, bare chested with a hint of butt from the captain is as good, I guess. ]
Oh, Nathan Fillion. How you manage to knock my socks off when I least expect it. To tell the truth, I STILL find myself looking at his butt. Since the naked Mal on the rock. I can’t get it out of my head. His butt. It’s so…bubble-like.
I think Joss did good enough to bring in the crowd and keep the fans satisfied. [ I can’t say that the die hard fans would be 100% happy, but this will do. ] Until next time, I guess.
Oh, and fans of the show. Stick around through the credit. The instrumental version of the Ballad is at the very end of it. Arm yourself with lyrics and sing along!
We sort of did since I only know the first sentence (Take my love. Take my land. Take me where I cannot stand), and Lee the one of after that (I don’t care. I’m still free). But we never miss “You can’t take the sky from me”!
Fortunately for us, there were less than a dozen people in our theater by that point. Unfortunately for them, we sort of sang.
So yep. There you go. Love the damn show. Love the movie. Go see it!
