Joss Whedon is going to give us another amazing ass kicking gal and the movie you all know you want to see, Serenity, opens on Friday.
"Joss Whedon, the Oscar® - and Emmy - nominated writer/director responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE, 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."

I'm attending a special bloggers' screening of the movie tomorrow night (Tuesday). And I still need a partner. You need to be able to meet me at the theater (AMC at Parkway Point)by 6:15 or at my office on Marietta Blvd. (off of Howell Mill) by 5:30. A couple of people expressed a little interest before but I need to nail it down. I can be bought for a tub of popcorn. (And by the by- The largest tub of movie theater popcorn that you have to hug instead of hold shall hence forth be known as the Hug Tub. glenn5 as deemed it so.)
I'll post reviews Weds or Thursday.
