With my birthday party, I was entertained seeing all my different groups of friends intermingle. There were current work friends, those from a former job, CO people who have also moved to Boston, school friends, etc. Just these disparate worlds connecting in odd ways at one venue.

So today, when I was reading a friend's post talking about actors on shows that hang out and are friends (Firefly cast springs to mind), I started to think about the different groups that could gather at a party cause of a actor/director/writer's job connections and then what kind of fun connections/crossovers could come out of it.

First thing that sprang to mind was David Hewlett (SGA) working with Joss Whedon (Firefly) cause of the Jewel Staite connection (which doesn't seem too big a stretch seeing as backstage info from both shows seems to indicate people get along great).

What's would your dream "party" connection be?

Last one, I swear, but if my exhorting you to go see Serenity hasn't worked, how about Orson Scott Card saying:

This is the kind of movie that I have always intended Ender's Game to be (though the plots are not at all similar).

And this is as good a movie as I always hoped Ender's Game would be.

And I'll tell you this right now: If Ender's Game can't be this kind of movie, and this good a movie, then I want it never to be made.

I'd rather just watch Serenity again.

I'm telling you...GO!

Went and saw Serenity...again. Dragged both my roommates...again. This time I also brought four other friends as well. Three of them loved it, the other said it was "meh," but then admitted to not really liking the Star Wars--even the first ones--so his opinion is kind of suspect.

I noticed a few more things this time around and of course they're kind of spoilery so... )

So even after three viewings, I think it works and works well. Even knowng everything that was going to happen, (or perhaps because of it?) I was still on edge during the climax.

It was interesting to see it in a non-fan audience. I was as aware of the them as I was the movie itself. They seemed to engage. All the comedic lines (and there are so many good ones) got lots of laughs and there was even a smattering of applause at the end...though that could have come from some diehard fans.

Is it bad that I want to see it again?
taerowyn: (Don't think so)
Went to see Dan Savage tonight. Too funny. I'll have to buy his book once it's out in paperback. What he read of it was stomach-cramp-inducing hilarious.

I've convinced a large group of people to come see Serenity with me tomorrow night. Should be fun. Boy and Girl Roommate wil be repeat viewers and then 4 to 5 others will be joining us. Just doing my part to ensure that there are sequels...

Well...you knew it was coming. Or, if you didn't know it was coming, you haven't been reading my journal very long. This is where I tell you all that you should go see Serenity this weekend. I'll even give you good reasons why...

10. Because I said so.

9. Because, well... pretty!

8. Because you don't have to have seen the show to enjoy the movie.

7. Because if you're a Libra (like me) it's in your horoscope...sort of.

6. Because there is some amazingly funny dialogue and a bunch of those great one liners that you leave the theater still chuckling over and repeating for days after.

5. Because what else are you going to watch this weekend...Jessica Alba in a bikini?

4. Because Morpheus will come kick your ass if you don't watch his wife's new movie

3. Because Neil Gaiman said you could.

2. Because this movie making a whole heap of money will be a gigantic F*** YOU to Fox for being stupid enough to cancel the show

1. Because it really is just a damn fine movie that anybody can enjoy. Go. Watch. Love...
