First off, I’ve decided to move Fear of a Tasteless Planet to Tuesdays. That way, I can tell you about my weekend.
Went to see Serenity on Friday with Shawna, Randy, Suzanne, Dave, and Mat. Excellent flick. Everything I expected out of Joss Whedon and more. My knuckles were pure white for the last forty minutes or so.
In related news, I saw this morning that Marvel Comics has named Whedon one of their “Terrific Ten,” Ten writers that, and I quote, “Will be getting a regular series or a major mini-series that will hopefully push them to that next level.”
So Marvel Comics is hoping they can spur Joss Whedon, who wrote and directed the number two movie in America and had a hit television series for seven years “to that next level.”
In other news (I say that a lot, I know), Randy pointed me toward various entries to a trailer remix contest, where editors were charged with making trailers for films, but in a new genre. For example, there’s West Side Story as a zombie flick, and Titanic as a horror film.
The winner, however, was The Shining as a coming of age comedy.
Finally, I found this yesterday. I wish I could say I was surprised. I assume that, any day now, Bush will appoint a director to guarantee a white future for Africa.
