More Serenity previews are coming on May 26th. 20 cities this time, probably the same ten as last week plus ten more. Neither Fandango nor MovieTickets sells seats that far in advance, so there's no word on where it's showing yet.

Update: Since I first posted this, Fandango started selling tickets. But I think most (if not all) of the shows are sold out again.

As many of you have heard already, on Thursday night there was a sneak preview of Serenity, the Firefly movie. I managed to finagle six tickets to the showing in Portland, and dragged along [livejournal.com profile] walbourn, [livejournal.com profile] hollyking, [livejournal.com profile] hollyqueen, [livejournal.com profile] bientot, and [livejournal.com profile] phedboi into my world of obsessive squeeing fandom. And the show was very nearly perfect (aside from some technical difficulties in the projection room). There were lot of surprises, and many questions were answered, but not in such a way as to preclude future movies/series from being made.

Buy, rent, or borrow the series DVDs, watch them in order, and go see the movie when it comes out in September. You won't be sorry.

And I know I promised no spoilers, but I must confess: River is made of chocolate. Jayne has a creamy filling. And if you ask me for spoilers, you can pretty much guarantee I'm going to lie to you. At least until the film comes out on DVD. THIS MEANS YOU, [livejournal.com profile] datavore!!!

I leave for Mexico in just over nine hours. I'll be gone until the evening of the 25th. And for the last time, I will not bring you back any hookers or coke! So stop asking!

My mommy says I don't have to share with you.

P.S. - Go see RotK.

Pirates of the Caribbean is my favorite movie ever. Wanna know why?

Three words:

Zombie Pirate MONKEYS!

Well now.

We just got back from seeing LXG, and it was good. Not great, but definitely amusing, with a considerable amount of implausible-yet-droolworthy steampunk.

I just have one teeny tiny pedantic gripe:

Quatermain, Quatermain, QUATERMAIN!!! Not Quartermain.

Damn it.

So. I went to see the midnight showing of Attack of the Clones with [livejournal.com profile] gfish and [livejournal.com profile] vixyish tonight. And it pretty much sucked. Stupid title, weak script, wooden acting, bad dialogue, gratuitous clothing rippage, too many gimmicky phrases, too much Jedi teen angst, *still* too much Jar-Jar, and a whole host of new vehicles that honestly look like they were only created to boost action figure sales. And the theater was too damned hot.

The visual effects were stunning, however, if somewhat overdone (but c'mon, it's Lucas), and Samuel L. Jackson is a badass. They also did a far better job of rendering Yoda -- my biggest peeve about Phantom Menace was that they made CG Yoda look even more like a muppet than, well, the muppet. It's not so bad this time.

Final verdict: It's worth seeing on the big screen, but do yourself a favor and wait for a matinee. Unless you get some thrill out of standing in ridiculously long lines.

P.S. - Somebody get Natalie Portman a voice coach, quick, because she sounds like she's fresh off the farm. Unless Indiana is actually on Naboo....?
