I went to see a sci-fi movie called Serenity last night with Andy and his brother, Mike McClean, Brendan, Pun, and their friend who goes to Mira Loma High.  I’d never heard of it before, so I wasn’t sure if it was something I was interested in seeing, but my friends convinced me.  It turns out that Serenity is a Joss Whedon film.  For those of you not in the know, Joss Whedon is the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and I believe now does some work on Lost), so obviously the movie was awesome.  Although it did have its fair share of characters making lame decisions for the sake of moving the plot forward (like the protagonist turning his back on his opponent instead of making sure he’s down for good), the premise and the action were great.  Of course, there was the Joss Whedon insignia on it: tiny girl with superpowers kicking butt.  This time, she’s not only superstrong, but psychic too.  Which means she knows what moves her enemies are going to make almost before they do.  That sets her up to lay waste to hordes of fighters in proportions that rival the Kill Bill movies.  Also, it was funny that right before we went, we were watching the Homestar cartoon where Strongbad gets a booth at Trogdor-Con.  “Ladies in skimpy sci-fi costumes should be hanging around me and, to a lesser degree, football players and rappers.”  Ah, that’s good stuff.  And then there was a girl in the movie who clearly had no real purpose in the movie other than her, as Brendan called them, “assets.”  Not that I minded, if you catch my drift, eh?  Eh?


So go see Serenity, it’s good. 


EDIT: Looks like Joss isn’t working on Lost after all.  Not really sure where I got that idea.

  1. you were 20 seconds behind me at yolo. There were like 20 people between us lol.

  2. “Oh well, I’m sure the mechanics of it would be too heavy for me…”HAHAHA, do you have to work at being hilarious or does it just come naturally?Anyway, Serenity’s one of those movies that I would be too out of the loop to watch, seeing how I’ve never seen an episode of Firefly in my life.

  3. you bet that was a close call you better go jumped around in circles in the sun and start screaming in front of all your neighbors. i have never seen or even heard of this movie IN MY LIFE EVER BEFORE EVER!!!! but i know this elephant that has “assets.” AND i know how to make butter. so i think you need to change your about be now because you no longer know the first 250 digits of Pi, you only know the first 200 YOU ARE SLACKING YOU LAZY JACKASS!!!!

  4. Yeah Serenity is cool. You should visit! And guess what else? 1 eProp! Throwing off your mojo, mwahaha. Why? Joss Whedon working on Lost–pssh.

  5. oh by the way, is your father’s name John Seymour by chance, and was he also the mayor of anaheim at one point and US Senator from California 1991-1993 but then lost his election to ugly Dianne Feinstein?
